    The main difference is intention. It's kind of difficult to explain here. They are both the future though.

    1. I'm going to do... - near future (using a structure in the present progressive). This specifies sooner than later.

    2. I will do it -- future (near or distant; using the true future tense). No indication of how soon or not.

      want to do it).  That's a general distinction but not 100%. There are exceptions.  Context plays a part in meaning too.
