Vin Diesel Teases Hulk/Groot Battle in a Future Marvel Movie

groot-vs-hulk-slice-600x200.jpg

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.

Vin Diesel Unlikely to Play Black Bolt in ‘Marvel’s The Inhumans’ TV Series

There’s no arguing that actor Vin Diesel would be a great choice to play Black Bolt in the live-action realization of Marvel’s The Inhumans. After the reveal The Inhumans would get their own feature film in phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Diesel teased the prospect of himself landing the role just a little over a year ago. Considering only his voice was used for Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, it seemed very possibly Diesel could get the gig, especially considering Black Bolt vowed never to speak so that he couldn’t lay waste with his devastating hypersonic voice. That is until now.

Earlier this week, Marvel announced their partnership with IMAX and Disney/ABC Television group to co-produce Marvel’s The Inhumans as a television series that will air on ABC instead of releasing a feature film in 2018. The series will make history as it will be the first ever series featuring the first two episodes shot entirely in IMAX, which are set to debut in theaters before the show begins its run on television in the fall of 2017.

During a Q&A on Facebook this past Wednesday, director of Guardians of the Galaxy himself, James Gunn, offered a very candid response when a fan asked whether or not Vin Diesel would still play the role of Black Bolt:

“The Inhumans is going to be a TV show. Unless Vin wants to take a huge pay cut and sign up to do a TV show it seems unlikely.”

Unfortunately, television is produced on the cheap and the reality is that the budget of a television series cannot measure up to provide salary level movie stars require. With Diesel more than likely out, this opens the doors back up to many possibilities as to who could fill the role. Who do you think would be a great fit for Black Bolt?

Marvel’s The Inhumans will premiere on ABC in the fall of 2017.

‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ Official Trailer #1

The official trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage, the third outing in the franchise dropped earlier this week and it looks absolutely ridiculous. From skiing through the jungle, to riding a dirt bike over waves in the ocean, everything about this film is completely absurd and it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun giggling all the way through it. The tagline for the film tells audiences — especially those not familiar with the franchise from over a decade ago — everything they need to know in order to not take this wild cheese fest seriously: “Kick some ass, get the girl, and try to look dope while you doing it”.
