The Guardians of the Galaxy Will Be in ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ Vin Diesel Confirms

What Groot lacks in vocabulary, Vin Diesel made up for by spilling some Marvel news.

In a Facebook live video that aired on the actor’s personal page on Friday, Diesel confirmed that the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in the upcoming Avengers movie “Infinity War.”

“Now, the Guardians will be included in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and that’s incredibly exciting,” he said addressing the live audience, “You were told before everybody.”

The real purpose of the video was not for Diesel to break news about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but to show off an award he received from Facebook for having over 100 million fans. Diesel spends most of the almost 30-minute-long video telling his audience how much he appreciates their support for his career, including joining the “Guardians” franchise.

“That whole concept started from you all saying, ‘When are you going to be in a Marvel movie?'” he said.

The actor didn’t share any more details regarding what role the band of misfit heroes will play in the film. But before they appear in “Infinity War,” their own sequel “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will hit theaters May 5, 2017.

In addition to Diesel, the core cast of Guardians includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper and Dave Bautista.

Avengers: Infinity War” is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018.
