Vin Diesel has discussed the potential for a spin off movie starring his 'Guardians of the Galaxy' character, Groot.

The actor, who voices the lovable tree creature, just told USA Today, "James Gunn has always wanted a Rocket and Groot movie".

One area that it definitely excels in, though, is easter eggs.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 rocketed into #1 at United Kingdom and Irish Box Office this Bank Holiday Weekend with an awesome estimated £17.85 Million within its opening four days. Some are pretty obvious, while others you may not have caught on your first viewing.

This new 3D action-adventure promises to take the superhero-genre to extraordinary heights - with early reviews overseas already raving about the film. Let us know your thoughts below!

Stay tuned for more updates about Marvel and "Guardians" franchise.

Kansas lawmakers unsure sales tax should be in budget fix
Senate Bill 1007, the "Tax Reform Act of 2017", was approved in the Senate by a largely partisan vote of 19-11. The Senate's language would have required the Green Mountain Care Board to convene a working group.

The Space Stone, the Mind Stone, the Reality Stone, the Power Stone and the Time Stone have featured in Marvel movies to date, so Warlock's Soul Stone would complete the set.

It's in this latest trailer that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gets a retro sitcom makeover, and it is thorough. A nice change of pace is that every character indulges in the amusing side of things with this sequel - for some, that might prove a bit much, but for most it'll be nothing but an asset to an already great movie.

"I knew that everybody loved it, though", he said. However, with many of them having individual films, they feel more like individuals brought together. They are very close to me. Either way, we'll have to wait it out and see how the films unfold to determine what could be coming next.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Lake Stevens native and global superstar Chris Pratt, but he's upstaged in some scenes by a much smaller character - Baby Groot.

A lot of the story, which also includes a sisterly rivalry that has veered into the murderous zone, is drawn from Gunn's relationship with his father, a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for 20 years, and what he calls his big, lovingly dysfunctional Irish Catholic family.

Director James Gunn's 2014 hit "Guardians of the Galaxy" was a breath of fresh air for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, not only because it deliberately avoided the pitfall of taking itself too seriously, but also because it strove to provide its characters with emotional cores- it successfully humanized its various non-humans. The Guardians movies - like much of pop culture - is still obsessed with the '80s, so this makes sense on multiple levels. This is fine if you weren't hoping for a huge progression in the storyline, but is something that could be disappointing for story-focused fans.
