Ohhhh [frick]!!! I'm glad he's still having a part in a Phase 3 movie. Just having him as a tree and saying 3 words is a waste of talent, but everything is working out.

I'm pretty sure he's referring to Groot returning in Avengers 3! lol

Or is/was it something else!?
MrCBM56 - 9/5/2013, 4:31 PM
"I'm pretty sure he's referring to Groot returning in Avengers 3! lol"

Doubt. He said the Movie he was talking about if for 2016, I' pretty sure Avengers 3 won't come out a year later after A2.

@MrCBM56

I posted that comment before I watched the video bro! lol But yeah when I heard "merging of brands" I thought different studios you know? Now I'm like what the heck is Vin hinting at? He said it was wayyyyy down the line though so what do you think man?? Is it even possible for Vin to play a different character with a voice like his??
cosmicman - 9/5/2013, 4:44 PM
merging of Marvel with Cosmic maybe?
MrCBM56 - 9/5/2013, 4:45 PM
BlackMan

Yeah, that Merging of Brands thing really got me thinking. At first thought, I did think of a different studios crossover movie, but who knows? We are 3 years away from 2016, he probably over exaggerated the WAYYY down the line thing to get off that specific movie, but I don't know. Hopefully we find out soon. I hate the suspicion...I need to know know!!

SILVER SURFER YOU IDIOTS!!!!!!
sansClaymore - 9/5/2013, 4:47 PM
merging of brands... guardians are in the avengers 3 when the thanos threat comes to earth
duh
MrCBM56 - 9/5/2013, 4:50 PM
"merging of brands... guardians are in the avengers 3 when the thanos threat comes to earth
duh"


For the last time, Vin said the movie comes out in 2016. Avengers 3 will not be out a year right after A2.
Praetorian - 9/5/2013, 4:53 PM
Either Silver Surfer or Black Bolt. I just say Silver surfer because I've been hoping for that movie and it sounds like they're merging the brands but he is not who I would choose to play Norrin Radd.
Black Bolt, sure. I think he'd do great.
sansClaymore - 9/5/2013, 4:57 PM
he said he was talking "way way way" down the line when does he say 2016?
sansClaymore - 9/5/2013, 4:58 PM
might as well say hes going to be ben grimm and they are merging F4 with the avengers
MrCBM56 - 9/5/2013, 5:00 PM
Sans

Like 5 minutes or something before the end, he said that he was originally part of a movie due for a 2016 release date.
sansClaymore - 9/5/2013, 5:01 PM
ahhh i see
sansClaymore - 9/5/2013, 5:03 PM
so they negotiated to get him into something sooner and still break a deal for a later film.... sweet
StatenMan18 - 9/5/2013, 5:04 PM
Lol I really don't have time to watch this vid can anyone fill me in on the key points, even if its only your opinion idc
TheFirstAvenger97 - 9/5/2013, 5:05 PM
let the speculation begin!
cosmicman - 9/5/2013, 5:06 PM
he only talks for 5 minutes. at the skip to the 50-minute mark.
TheBlackNerd - 9/5/2013, 5:08 PM
So far as we know these are our phase 3 assumptions...

Ant-Man
Thor 3
Doctor Strange
Black Panther
Captain America 3
Avengers 3

Even though some of these films and order I mentioned may be false what 2016 movie do you guys think he's talking about??

@MrCBM56

Lol at the gif, and totally agreed man! I guess we'll have to wait and see!

@Praetorian

But since Silver Surfer is most likely tied to Galactus and Galactus is most likely tied to Fox I don't think we'll see that happen. However I do hink he may be speaking of either mo-cap or voice acting.
StatenMan18 - 9/5/2013, 5:11 PM
I heard a sort of legit rumor that a solo hulk movie is coming after avengers 2 which if you think about it would make sense, and I just think doctor strange has to eventually come in this mix.
, and daredevil too now that marvel has him back. But it would be awesome to see silver surfer in his own movie but idk if vin diesel is the guy for that, although I do love his work.
Cles - 9/5/2013, 5:31 PM
Has Mavel even confirmed his involvement in GotG yet? The only confirmations we are getting are from Vin himself.
Cles - 9/5/2013, 5:34 PM
Correction: The only confirmations that I can find are from Vin himself.
marvel72 - 9/5/2013, 5:42 PM
guardians of the galaxy will lead into other cosmic characters.

-the inhumans
-captain mar-vell
-ms.marvel aka captain marvel
-adam warlock
-quaser
-the annihilators
Lozzy - 9/5/2013, 6:02 PM
His playing Black Bolt in Inhumans
thunderforce - 9/5/2013, 6:48 PM
Merging of brands ? watch Star Wars meets Marvel .
DioFoRio - 9/5/2013, 7:15 PM
Remember when Marvel said Inhumans was around the corner a while ago? Maybe that's finally coming to fruition.
SnapperCarr - 9/5/2013, 7:20 PM
merging of brands... I know its a longshot but what if its Spiderman and the Avengers together?
DioFoRio - 9/5/2013, 7:20 PM
@thunderforce that WOULD BE...weird dont'cha think....dontcha.
TankD - 9/5/2013, 9:13 PM
Did everyone forget about the confirmed mystery project marvel revealed they had planned awhile back?
Jaspion - 9/5/2013, 10:34 PM
Merging of brands? Like Marvel and Sony?
7ditty - 9/5/2013, 10:35 PM
He May Be Plaing Daredevil
Tainted87 - 9/5/2013, 11:04 PM
Starring role in Saving Private Ryan? REALLY?
He gets shot by a sniper. He probably has five minutes of screen time.
Humby - 9/5/2013, 11:13 PM
He says something along the lines of it "is merging of brands, in a way." I don't think he means brands in terms of the different studios. To me, this sounds more along the lines of the Avengers characters tying into GotG. Maybe something like the Hulk finally getting his out of this world adventure, or perhaps (if GotG doesn't take place in the future) the team meeting up with the Avengers to battle Thanos.
MightyZeus - 9/5/2013, 11:17 PM
Everyone knew he'd be playing Groot.
It would have been interesting if he played Silver Surfer.
charlie2094 - 9/5/2013, 11:31 PM
Merging of brands? Potentially bringing in Spider-Man for Avengers 3 and Thanos? Wouldn't say just adding the Guardians would count, they're already part of the MCU brand in a way..

Can't wait for next years comic-con, hopefully shed some lights on Marvels plans, sound big!
