There will come a movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will find themselves united with the somewhat mightiest heroes of outer space against an intergalactic threat. That movie will be Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War”, as Vin Diesel confirmed on a Facebook Live video that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be joining the Avengers in the endgame known as Thanos (Josh Brolin), whose first MCU appearance was the 2012 global (Hulk) smash that made the Avengers into ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ against Loki (Tom Hiddleston) during the battle of New York.
Two summers later came “Guardians of the Galaxy” with Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), and Vin Diesel as Groot doing “something good, something bad” as the titular gang of renegades, misfits, outlaws, and heroes. They warped speed Chris Evans’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as the top-grossing movie of 2014 as well as for Marvel. The follow-up, entitled “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” featuring Kurt Russell and Nathan Fillion, is set to take off on May 5, 2017.
On his Facebook Live video, Diesel said that having the Guardians in Avengers: Infinity War is “incredibly excited” – meaning it has been a long time to coming for a day where Earth’s Mightiest Heroes found themselves united with the somewhat mightiest heroes of outer space against an intergalactic foe.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” is set to begin on May 4, 2018.
