Vin Diesel in Talks to Play Groot in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy"

Posted: August 12th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Vin Diesel in Talks to Play Groot in MarvelSubmit Comment
Vin Diesel wanted to appear in a comic book film for many years. He had several opportunities, but they never worked out. Then recently he started hinting that he's in negotiations with Marvel to join one of their upcoming movies.

There were rumors that he may play Vision, Thanos, or Ultron in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," or voice a character in "Guardians of the Galaxy." The actor has now updated his Facebook account with a caption-less image of Groot from "Guardians of the Galaxy" (see below).

Groot is a tree-like alien with the power to absorb wood to gain strength and recover from injuries. He can also control trees. While Groot supposedly speaks, he seems to only ever say "I am Groot."

Diesel is known for attempting to mislead fans, but Deadline has just confirmed that the actor is indeed negotiating to play Groot. If things work out, he'll join Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly and Glenn Close.

Marvel gave him a choice. He could either play Groot in GUARDIANS, or She-Hulk in AVENGERS 2.

My favorite Vin Diesel role was in 'The Iron Giant', so I have no problem w/ him voicing Groot. This is definitely playable.

Yeah, Hobo With A Shotgun was a way better Troma homage than Super.

Just remember guys, if they keep this true to the comics, Vin Diesel will get paid millions of dollars to say "I am Groot" over and over again
