Who would win in a fight: Groot or the Hulk? We may find out – as Vin Diesel is convinced the two will one day meet each other in battle in the Marvel Comics Universe.
It remains to be seen whether Groot will get a chance to grow back to his full size by then: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 will see him starting from scratch as Baby Groot.
Speaking to Screen Junkies, Vin Diesel first of all revealed that director James Gunn wanted to make a movie focusing on Groot and his partner genetically engineered raccoon Rocket after the next Avengers movie, Infinity Wars.
But then – perhaps even more excitingly – Hulk and Groot could meet head to head in one of the weirdest battles in Marvel history.
“I think if it’s up to James Gunn, you’re going to see a Groot and Rocket movie, after Infinity War. That’s highly possible,” he said. “We shall see.”
The star, who voices Groot, then added: “I know that somewhere in the universe you’re going to see Groot and Hulk battle, I know it! You can write it somewhere, you’re going to see that poster…Groot versus Hulk.”
We’d put our money on Groot. That little sapling is one to watch.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 will be released in April 2017
