First off, I'd like to apologize for the huge delay in releasing this update, my fellow Galaxians. I've been struck with a huge ice storm and have been without power for a couple of days. All is well now, however, so it's time for the official announcement!
Vin Diesel is the voice of Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
Yes, we've known this for a long time, Vin has talked about this for a long time, but Marvel made the official announcement day before yesterday
I have to say, as soon as I heard Vin was meeting with Marvel for something, I was hoping this is what would come of it. I know he wanted to play Vision and there were/are whispers of him being involved in Inhumans and Black Bolt. But I really felt he'd be a good fit here and could be a big part of bringing Groot to life and helping make him a fan-favorite character of Chewbacca proportions.
What do you guys think? Were you hoping for someone specific that wasn't Vin Diesel to voice Groot? Let your voices be heard in the comments below!
