Diesel, who lends his voice to Groot in the films, recently sat down with Screen Junkies where he revealed that the possibility of Groot and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) getting their own spinoff is definitely a possibility.
“I think if it’s up to [director] James Gunn, you are going to see a Groot and Rocket movie after Infinity War,” said Diesel. “I think that’s highly possible. We shall see.”
Like fans of the source material, Diesel is also very aware of the fact that Groot ends up facing off against none other than The Incredible Hulk at some point. If Diesel has it his way, that’s one battle we’ll definitely get to see play out on the big screen.
“I know that, somewhere in the universe, you are going to see Groot and Hulk battle. You can write it somewhere. You are going to see that poster: Hulk vs. Groot,” continued Diesel.
We’re definitely hoping Diesel gets his wish of an epic Groot/Hulk showdown at some point! But until then, we’ll be looking forward to enjoying Baby Groot when the next installment of Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters this summer!
