Vin Diesel talks Groot in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and meeting with Marvel on Phase 3 film projects

While promoting his new film Riddick, Vin Diesel finally went into more detail about how he ended up negotiating a deal for voice and motion capture work as the comic book character and why he had originally met with Marvel.

groot Guardians of the Galaxy“What can I say about Groot? I can say something about Marvel,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I take my hat off to them for being so creative and thinking outside of the box.”

Diesel says that he had originally met with Marvel to launch a fresh IP (intellectual property).

“That was the focus of our conversation — a fresh IP that would come out in 2016 or 2017, and potentially launch the third phase,” he tells THR.

Now being officially the voice of Groot has the actor excited.

“I guess after watching the Iron Giant, [Marvel] had the idea of taking the strangest Marvel character we know and thought what I could do with that with motion capture and the voice,” he says.

“It is something that’s interesting and it’s a really great idea on behalf of Marvel, and now it’s up to my reps to allow that to happen.”

Guardians Of The Galaxy opens 1 August 2014.
