James Gunn wants to make Guardians of the Galaxy spin-off starring Rocket and Groot

It would come after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the duo's role in Avengers: Infinity War

    Vin Diesel seems to have become the unofficial mouthpiece for the Guardians of the Galaxy gang. After prematurely spilling the beans about the Guardians popping up in Avengers: Infinity War last August, he’s now dropping bombs about a movie centered around his character, the stalwart Groot, and his pal, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper).

    During an interview promoting his new movie, XxX: The Return of Xander Cage, Diesel dodged a question about whether or not Groot might someday team up with a character like Spider-Man, responding instead with: “I think if it’s up to [Guardians‘ director] James Gunn, you’re going to see a Groot/Rocket movie.”

    It’s certainly not a far-fetched idea. Rocket and Groot have a hilarious, heartfelt relationship with ample history, and it’s not as if Diesel and Cooper can’t carry a film. That’s money in the bank right there.
