According to The Mary Sue:

At SDCC last month Vin Diesel mentioned the talks with Marvel again in the Riddick panel but refused to divulge any details. The first picture he had posted was of him standing next to an Avengers comic book cover, so the initial speculation seemed to suggest Age of Ultron more than Guardians, but I’d say this new development makes sense.

So, are the rumors true? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, fans are insanely excited at the thought of Vin Diesel playing Groot.

Let's cross our fingers!
