Vin Diesel to possibly play Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy

by on Aug.12, 2013, under Movies

Vin Diesel appears to be dropping hints that he will play the tree-like alien Groot in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy. Diesel apparently put up an upcoming picture of the character on his Facebook page before later taking it down, but the Riddick star previously had said he had been in talks about the movie as well.

Groot first appeared as a villain in Tales To Astonish in 1960 seeking to capture humans to study. He made appearances in The Incredible Hulk in 1976 and The Amazing Spider-Man in 1997, before joining S.H.I.E.L.D. and appearing in the Annihilation: Conquest crossover event. Groot can control trees, and absorb wood to strengthen himself. However, he has limited vocal abilities, apparently only able to say “I am Groot,” but it is said he can communicate a lot if you can understand him.
