KEY POINTS

  • Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson's movies are expected to compete at the 2021 box office
  • Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson may ignite the Marvel vs DC feud
  • Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson spoke about their feud after filming "Fast and Furious"

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson's feud is expected to level up next year.

Diesel and Johnson had a falling out when they filmed “Fast and Furious 8.” In their past interviews, they already addressed the issue, but it seems that The Rock is not over it. The two will be having another battle in 2021, ScreenRant reported.

Diesel plays Groot in the superhero flick “Guardians of the Galaxy” which will come out in 2022. However, it will reportedly come out sooner than that since Marvel has already confirmed that Groot and the Guardians will appear in “Thor: Love and Thunder” on Nov. 5, 2021.

Meanwhile, Dwayne’s DC antagonist movie “Black Adam” will premiere on Dec. 22. Although the pair are universes apart, they are expected to compete in the box office for months.

The feud will also fuel the “Marvel versus DC” mentality from comic book fans. However, “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn who also helmed DC’s “The Suicide Squad” said that there is no real feud between DC and Marvel. However, the personal issues between Diesel and Johnson in the past will likely ignite a new feud at the 2021 box office.

In 2017, Diesel ended the feud when they appeared on the red carpet together. According to the “F9” star they still love each other and at his house, Johnson is called “Uncle Dwayne.”

“We still love each other, that's my boy. When I was making that difficult decision, should there be an 8 or not, I called [Johnson] and he said, ‘Brother, I will be there shoulder to shoulder with you to make sure it's the best movie in history.’ And he delivered,” Diesel said.

“At my house he’s ‘Uncle Dwayne’ and I’m proud of that,” he added.

In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2018, Johnson said that they already talked about it. He realized that they have different philosophies when it comes to making movies. He admitted that it took him time to accept it, but he was grateful for the clarity.

“But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have,” Johnson said then laughed and added, “Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”
