'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2' news: Vin Diesel's 'I am Groot' script means different things; Thanos could be main villain


James Gunn, the director of the upcoming sequel of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” has been very engaged with fans regarding the movie.

Recently, fans became interested in Groot’s voice, done by Vin Diesel, as they bombard the director with questions regarding the variety of “I am Groot” that the actor is supposed to say. While the audience only hears one phrase, it is supposed to mean several different things. The director revealed on his Twitter, “Only Vin Diesel and I have the special Groot script with translations of what he’s saying.” Although his revelation did not really give the actual script, at least, it has shed some light that Vin Diesel’s role in voicing over the character with only one script to say is indeed necessary.

The production of the sequel will start early next year. Gunn confirmed that the script of the story is already done, but some aspects may be modified as they go along the production of the movie. The script, Gunn said on his Twitter page, was solely written by him, unlike the first movie where Nicole Perlman’s help was enlisted.

In the sequel, fans can expect the return of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper. Aside from them, it was confirmed around two weeks ago that Pom Klementeiff also joined the set as Mantis, “the half-Vietnamese, half-German daughter of Libra, who is also a martial arts expert with psychic abilities and ties to the alien Kree race.”

As for the villain, there are rumors that it could be Thanos or his son, Thane. Around two weeks ago, Matthew McConaughey, who starred in the films “Magic Mike,” “Interstellar,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and “The Lincoln Lawyer,” has reportedly turned down the role for the villain. However, Cooper, who plays Rocket Raccoon in the film, accidentally slipped that Josh Brolin will be the main villain in the sequel as Thanos, notes Inquisitr when he was interviewed for his other film, “Burnt.” Gunn, on the other hand, assured that Cooper still did not have the script when he did the interview.

Fans will have to wait until “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theatres on May 5, 2017 to find out whether Gunn is just covering up or Cooper actually accidentally revealed this particular detail.
