Could the Guardians of the Galaxy team up with The Avengers? It’s the question we guarantee everyone will be asking once they’ve seen Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ when it blasts into cinemas this week.
Well, it sounds like Marvel has already started planning a crossover film. That’s according to Vin Diesel anyway, watch our exclusive video feature above to hear it from the man himself.
“Marvel will have a lot of options after this movie and one of those options will be integrating teams,” says the actor who plays tree beast Groot.
“I think there’s going to be huge fans of the Guardians and there are huge fans of the Avengers and I think the discussion has already been had [at Marvel]. I think the audience may demand something like that.”
Director James Gunn, who will return to write and direct 2017’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’, confirmed that he has been discussing a potential crossover with his Marvel bosses, but he was reticent to dish any details.
“We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover] and I kind of know what the basic plan is. It could always change at any minute.
“That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they’re pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other.”
Mixing just a few of the Guardians with a few of the ‘The Avengers’ on screen is a tantalizing prospect and could get around the tricky task of servicing all of the character arcs in one super-movie.
