Vin Diesel just RSVP’d for Avengers: Infinity War, and it sounds like he’s bringing the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy gang with him.

During a Facebook Live stream on Friday, the baritone voice behind the extraterrestrial tree creature Groot confirmed he and his fellow space misfits will appear in the third installment of the Avengers franchise.

“The Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War,” Diesel said, “and that’s incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting.”

Diesel didn’t offer further details, and representatives for Marvel could not be reached for immediate comment, but presumably he would be joined by GOTG costars like Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), and Bradley Cooper (Rocket).


Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to hit theaters May 4, 2018. Check out Diesel’s comments below, at about 20:30.
