We’ve suspected this would be the case for a long time now, but Fast and Furious 8 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Vin Diesel may find himself in hot water with Marvel Studios after confirming in a recent Facebook Q&A that Groot and company are coming to Avengers: Infinity War (that and the currently untitled Avengers 4 start shooting this Fall).
“The Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War, and that’s incredibly exciting,” the actor confirms in the video below. Star-Lord and his team helping out Earth’s Mightiest Heroes during their battle with Thanos makes perfect sense, but Marvel has so far been careful to neither confirm nor deny the involvement of the Guardians of the Galaxy here.
The cat is out of the bag now anyway, and it will be interesting to see if the upcoming Vol. 2 end up laying the groundwork for the Guardians to return to Earth to team up with The Avengers. James Gunn has said on numerous occasions that the Mad Titan won’t appear in the sequel, so it may be best not to get too excited about the crossover being teased there.
