Ralph Breaks the Internet is hitting theaters later this month and it will feature a surprising cameo from an Avengers: Infinity War character.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is so ripe with iconic voice performances that it’s almost shocking that they don’t appear in more cameos throughout Disney properties. Characters like Hulk, Rocket, Red Skull, Thanos, Ultron, and even Korg have all been made iconic thanks to a mix of incredible motion capture and vocal performances from their respective actors. Many of these voice actors, like Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, are actually huge stars in Hollywood outside of their Marvel roles and it’s that kind of talent that brings these eclectic group of heroes and villains to life so effectively.
One of the most fascinating examples of this is The Fast and the Furious franchise star Vin Diesel voicing Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, as well as in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Sadly, the beloved character was turned to dust by Thanos but that doesn’t mean he’s gone for good. Groot, specifically Baby Groot, will live on in the upcoming animated feature Ralph Breaks the Internet.
Vin Diesel is returning to voice the Marvel icon in the animated sequel but there has been no news yet on just how big of a role he’ll have in the film. Although Groot was killed in Avengers: Infinity War, many fans suspect that he will be one of the heroes resurrected in next year’s Avengers 4. With the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise in a sort of limbo at the moment, due to the firing of writer/director James Gunn, anything can happen to the characters behind-the-scenes between now and when the film releases next May.
