Vin Diesel Confirms The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Will Be in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
There's been a couple of teasing comments about the Guardians of the Galaxy being included in Avengers: Infinity War. I know the fans have been hoping to see the Guardians team fighting alongside the Avengers team, and both Star-Lord and Rocket Racoon have been previously mentioned in comments.
Now it sounds like we have full on confirmation and it comes directly from Vin Diesel himself! The actor recently hosted a live chat on Facebook and while he was talking to his fans, he said this:
“Next year you’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming and that whole concept started from you all saying ‘when are you gonna be in a Marvel movie?’ And you remember the first picture after that Marvel meeting that I had where I was standing [with] the Avengers thing in the back – some of you can look up that picture…there was this old Avengers copy that was behind me in that picture if you look back on my Facebook page you can find that.
What’s gonna be surreal is that picture is going to come to pass because now the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War and that’s incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting and something that if you were a part of our page you knew before everybody.”
There's nothing teasing about that comment. That's straight up telling us that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be teaming up with the Avengers in Infinity War. I think most us expected it, but it's always nice to have a good solid confirmation. It's going to be a blast seeing all these crazy Marvel characters interacting with each other in the MCU!
There are a lot of characters that the Russo Brothers are going to have to balance out in the next Avengers film. I'm sure they'll be able to effectively pull it off. So far they've been doing a great job!
Avengers: Infinity War is set to be released on May 4, 2018.
