Story arcs for the crossover characters of Avengers 3: Infinity War, including one that has the reborn tree Groot battling Hulk, just went viral. The Guardians of the Galaxy character’s bout with the huge green Avenger was spilled by Vin Diesel in a recent interview.
The monstrous counterpart of Bruce Banner was last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron flying away from his fellow Avengers in the Quinjet. Recently, Director Taiko Waititi revealed that Hulk will develop a friendship with Miek while in planet Skaar and engage in gladiator fights before heading back to earth, where he and his newfound “ally” will be dealing with the Illuminati.
When the different characters in the Marvel cinematic universe cross over to Avengers 3: Infinity War, Vin Diesel stated that “somewhere in the universe, you’re gonna see Groot and Hulk battle.” Apart from Groot and Hulk figuring in some sort of tussle, a Rocket and Groot spin-off may happen. Vin Diesel said it is not a remote possibility, and it all lies with the director, James Gunn, after Avengers 3 is shown.
Avengers: Infinity War will not be shown in cinemas until May 4, 2018. For now, Groot’s cuteness is exhibited to all in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser trailer.
Fans’ Mixed Reactions on Hero vs. Hero Battles
Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, recently stoked fans’ interest when he tweeted and posted on his Instagram page a fan art showing the hands of various Avengers 3: Infinity War characters. Alongside the image, he wrote “United we Stand” followed by the hashtags #avengers #suitup #letsdothis.
The post garnered lots of likes and sent Marvel fanatics’ hearts throbbing with excitement. Some of Jeremy’s Instagram followers continued the quote (“divided we fall”) but expressed that hopefully, the heroes will not meet their downfall. Others posted hilarious reactions like mistaking Hulk’s hand for Shrek’s. A handful of comic book fans expressed that they would rather see the Marvel heroes battling “interesting villains” than engaging in “hero vs. hero battles.”
Another Marvel fan countered that since the character being referred to is the Hulk, it is but expected that he will get into a tussle since “he fights everyone all the time.” Amidst more tussling and misunderstanding, some Marvel fans surmised that in the end, the Marvel heroes may agree on a common enemy and join forces, which is an “age-old comic book trope.”
Whichever Avengers 3 characters you may be rooting for, it will be cool to see Hulk and Groot sharing screen time, but whether they will display pure rage or have a moment of calmness has yet to be confirmed. For now, social media is abuzz with excitement, with some movie buffs asking, “Quien ganaría???” or “Who will win?” complete with emoticons.
