The Quill and his GOTG team soon discover, however, the true power of the orb, triggering a "last stand" fight that could either save or destroy the galaxy.
Vin Diesel, who plays the tree-like humanoid superhero Groot, opened up about his new role and what persuaded him to take it. According to Diesel, his social media fans kept asking him when he was going to take a role in a Marvel. Eventually, Diesel cracked and met with officials with Marvel to discuss a role in Guardians of The Galaxy.
"I had heard over the last year people on the social media page saying ‘what’s up Vin? Why aren’t you going to Marvel? Why aren’t you doing anything with Marvel? It would be a crime of cinematic history for you not to be.’ So I’m thinking this Marvel thing is becoming really, really important to these people. Okay, what can I do? What should I think?," said Diesel in a recent interview.
Some of the other stars you'll see in Marvel's Guardians of The Galaxy include Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C.
