Fans have been pretty eager to see both the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy fighting side by side, heck we personally would love to see it happen.
The confirmation comes from Vin Diesel, having hosted a live chat on Facebook he straight up said that its happening:
“Next year you’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming and that whole concept started from you all saying ‘when are you gonna be in a Marvel movie?’ And you remember the first picture after that Marvel meeting that I had where I was standing [with] the Avengers thing in the back – some of you can look up that picture…there was this old Avengers copy that was behind me in that picture if you look back on my Facebook page you can find that.
What’s gonna be surreal is that picture is going to come to pass because now the Guardians will be included in Avengers: Infinity War and that’s incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting and something that if you were a part of our page you knew before everybody.”
Given that both storylines are linked due to the presence of Thanos’s Infinity Stones, it probably would have happened eventually, but we’re happy to know that its happening a lot sooner!
Avengers: Infinity War is set for 4 May 2018 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 comes 5 May 2017.
