It’s official! Infinity War will give us an Avengers Guardians of the Galaxy crossover!
There’s an exciting confirmation today for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Vin Diesel just took to Facebook Live with a whole lot more to say than just, “I am Groot.” According to the Fast and the Furious franchise star, Joe and Anthony’s Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War is officially set to deliver an Avengers Guardians of the Galaxy crossover!
“The Guardians will be included in ‘Avengers: Infinity War,” says Diesel after reflecting on his time with Marvel Studios so far, “and that’s incredibly exciting.”

Meanwhile, Cinema Blend caught up the Russos and got some clarification about why only the first of their two Avengers films will feature the Infinity War title.
“We wanted the movie to be very different and distinctive, you know?” Joe Russo told the site. “There’s certainly cross-pollination between characters and some story-arcs, but you know, the first movie is very clearly Avengers: Infinity War and, in time, we will reveal what the second film is… You’ll learn [it], but not for quite some time.”
It was revealed last month that, for the time being, the second film is temporarily known only as Untitled Avengers film with a May 3, 2019 release planned. Will it also feature an Avengers Guardians of the Galaxy crossover? Only time will tell, so check back for details as they become available.
Production on the two Infinity War movies is set to begin in November of this year in Atlanta, Georgia with both movies being shot back to back. It remains to be seen which characters will be the primary focus of both films, though we do know that Captain Marvel will appear in the movies ahead of her solo movie in 2019.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will pen the scripts for both films and the plan is for both films to be shot entirely in IMAX.
