From the latest episode of Screen Junkies on YouTube, host Roth Cornet interviewed Vin Diesel at the big comic con down in Brazil over the weekend, and the Pacifier star had some bold claims about a potential Rocket Raccoon and Groot solo film:

I think if it’s up to James Gunn, you are going to see a Groot and Rocket movie after Infinity War. I think that’s highly possible. We shall see. I know that, somewhere in the universe, you are going to see Groot and Hulk battle. You can write it somewhere. You are going to see that poster: Hulk vs. Groot.

Unfortunately, Vin Diesel isn’t in charge of Marvel’s movie slate. That would be Kevin Feige, the mortal enemy of Bleeding Cool’s best friend Ike Perlmutter. But maybe Vin knows something we don’t. James Gunn has hinted about wanting to spinoffs for all of the characters, with Rocket and Groot at the top of the list. Or maybe it will be a self-fulfilling prophecy, and Diesel’s comments will fuel fan demand that gets the movie made.

In any case, we’ve been told that our news stories need to include more Rocket Raccoon, so we’ll be following this story closely.
