These pictures come shortly after a casting rumour was made stratospheric by Vin Diesel who posted a picture of Groot to his Facebook page via the cover photo tool. Given that he has 45m ‘likes’ on the social networking site, the story was always likely to break: Diesel is favourite to play Groot.

He’s been teasing this since the beginning of thesummer. At San Diego’s Comic-Con, having already mentioned a meeting with Marvel, he explained: “Marvel was excited about bringing a different kind of relationship, a different kind of love story, I guess kind of inspired from the Dom-Letty relationship, into the Marvel universe.” (Metro)

In other Guardians news, and there seems to be a lot, a recent trailer was confirmed by director James Gunn to be a fake, not that he needed to, judging by the awful quality of it. “That Guardians of the Galaxy trailer on YouTube you’re all writing me about is completely fake, of course,” he said, before adding on YouTube: “Guys, this is, of course, a fake trailer. It has nothing to do with us, nor the trailer that showed at Comic Con or D23.” (

Guardians Of The Galaxy is set to be released in movie theatres on August 1, 2014.
