There are many reasons to get excited for Avengers: Infinity War. The larger than life superhero sequel event promises to be something mind-blowing for comic book fans everywhere, and those involved are inclined to agree. Among the actors appearing in the superhero showcase is Vin Diesel, playing the lovable Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy films. For years, he’s teased a fight between his alien character and Mark Ruffalo’s embittered Hulk and now, we’ll finally get such a brawl in the upcoming 2018 blockbuster extravaganza — if Diesel is to be believed.
In an interview with Screen Rant for this weekend’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Diesel basically confirmed the fight is happening, noting that he needs to figure out how to make it work with directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War).
I’m excited about Baby Groot; he’s just too fun. In Infinity War, I have to talk to the Russo brothers and find out how this is all gonna go down. I know somewhere in the Marvel Universe, there is a moment when you will see Groot and Hulk have a few words. I think there’s gonna be a moment that we’re all waiting for, and whether you know it our not, you are waiting to see Groot and the Hulk get down.
That’s quite the exciting tease. We still don’t know exactly what to expect with Avengers: Infinity War, but we do know it’s going to be epic as all hell. Consider our tickets pre-bought. Diesel certainly seems excited to get a little bit of the pie, too. And who can blame him? We’d be just as giddy.
Of course, this new hint is merely a sliver of what we’ll get from Avengers: Infinity War once it slams its way into theaters on May 4, 2018. We’re still waiting to hear more details, but as they come, you know that you’ll find them here.
