Vin Diesel Wants to Make a Standalone Groot Movie
Published Jan 27, 2017Anyone who follows Vin Diesel on Instagram knows that the actor has an incredibly positive outlook on life. That's probably why, despite the fact that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hasn't even arrived yet, he's already making future plans for his Groot character.
In a new interview with MTV (viewable below), Vinny D said he and director James Gunn have already tossed the idea of a Groot spinoff around.
"I think it's inevitable, I think that character is so enigmatic," the actor said. "He was already one of the most unique characters in the Marvel universe, and I think what Marvel has done — primarily what James Gunn has done — to realize that character has exceeded beyond any of its expectations. I think he's just such an interesting character, and there's so much to learn about him. I would love to go back to his planet and learn more about him, and I think the world would, [too]."
Of course, before any sort of Groot spinoff is confirmed, we'll first see the weird tree man return in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which finally arrives on May 5.
