Diesel, the star of Fast & Furious, portrayed extraterrestrial Groot in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy alongside Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper.

Diesel called the planned Avengers mash-up "incredibly exciting."

A spokeswoman for Avengers studio Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to launch in May, 2017, while Infinity War is set for release May, 2018.
