The world fell in love with Groot when Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters in 2014. They fell in love all over again when they met Baby Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser trailer late last year. Audiences probably would be happy to support a solo adventure for Groot and according to his voice, Vin Diesel, that possibility has been discussed.

While promoting XXX: Return of Xander Cage, Diesel was asked by MTV if he would be interested in making a Groot spinoff.

“It’s something that James Gunn has talked about and it’s something that I know that he would love to do.

“Sure, I think it could be very interesting. I think it’s inevitable.”

Diesel expanded a bit on why he thinks Groot will get his own movie, which you can see in the video above. As for his comments regarding James Gunn talking about it, I’m not sure if Diesel is referring to a conversation he’s actually had with the GotG/GotG Vol. 2 director and/or Marvel Studios, or if he’s just picked up on other comments Gunn might have made in interviews or on social media.

I could absolutely see Groot getting a spinoff out of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, but it’s more likely that it would take the form of a team-up with Rocket rather than a true solo adventure. As long as the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps rolling along, however, I won’t eliminate any possibilities regarding one of its most beloved characters.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in theaters May 5.
