2016 realized the wet dreams of both Marvel and DC fans alike as they were privileged to experience not only a live-action adaptation of Captain America: Civil War but were also treated to the clash between the brave and the bold when Batman and Superman took on one another in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
With Marvel currently dominating not only the superhero genre but entertainment as a whole second to the Star Wars franchise. Going off of the words of President of Marvel Studios himself, Kevin Feige who recently teased unlikely team-ups in the future, it seems like anything is possible going into phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While promoting his new film xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Vin Diesel, who voices Groot in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy set the junket on fire when he told Roth Cornet of Screen Junkies that if James Gunn has his way, we will someday see Groot battle Hulk in a Marvel movie:
“I think if it’s up to James Gunn, you’re going to see a Groot/Rocket movie after Infinity War. I think that’s highly possible. We shall see. 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 vs. Hulk.”
While it would be absolutely incredible to see Hulk and Groot fight each other, unfortunately, Gunn isn’t in charge of whether it happens or not. Diesel has been known to say some pretty wild things before that don’t end up coming true (cough-cough, Blackbolt). So I wouldn’t get your hopes up. But we all know a film that featured a Hulk/Groot battle would be a smart move financially, as it would back truck-loads of money. Just don’t expect it until Feige and Gunn can find a way where the story presents itself for the battle to happen organically.
