We all know Vin Diesel likes to hear himself talk. He has big ideas, and that’s great, but sometimes they don’t always work out.
Why are we giving you this warning? Well, because we don’t want you to get too excited about this possible Groot spin-off movie. Please remember that Diesel also believes Furious 7 should have won Best Picture at the Oscars.
During a recent interview with USA Today, the 49-year-old actor said:
“James Gunn has always wanted a Rocket and Groot movie. And I know that Disney is very much into being successful. And the most successful poster in Disney’s future is the poster that has ‘Groot vs. Hulk.’ … (The world) cannot wait to see it.”
You read that and think, “Damn! Disney will announce the spin-off next month!” But you should not think that. Director James Gunn also spoke with USA Today, and he said, “Vin has a lot of ideas. I don’t know where he comes up with these things! I love Vin.”
That’s the same thing a parent might say about their child who is always telling the neighbors crazy stories. “Oh that Vinny. We don’t know what we’re going to do with him. Such an imagination on that boy.”
