There have been very few images officially revealed from the set of Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. But if you want to get a few behind the scenes looks a little early, there's always Vin Diesel's Facebook page. Case in point: the actor, who is playing Groot in the 2014 film, previously posted a video of himself walking around on stilts and talking about the character. This time, he's posted a picture of himself posing with every comic reader's favorite minimalist sentient tree.
Odds are director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxyfilm will be a lot of fun, given Gunn's pedigree and the cast, but I'm not sure it'll top this video of Vin Diesel being sosuper-excited about playing Groot that the's walking around the set of Fast 7 on high-tech stilts, hosting impromptu gatherings to talk about his tree-alien role, and, most importantly, high-fiving Kurt Russell.
Diesel posted the video on Facebook. Check it out after the jump.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie probably seems like a pretty weird concept to a lot of folks unfamiliar with the comics source material, so Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is here to offer a primer.
Speaking with Empire magazine, Feige said the Guardians are "an unlikely band" brought together by "pure circumstance." He went on to describe each character. You can catch all his descriptions after the jump.
That picture was of Groot, the tree-like alien from Planet X who and member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The scuttlebutt now is that Diesel may be the voice of the character, who in recent years has limited his speaking to nothing more than the phrase, "I am Groot."
