In the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, Groot sacrificed himself to save the fellow team-mates from inevitable death. It was truly heroic and a noble act, for moment fans cried at the loss of Groot but then he re-appeared as Baby Groot which brought a smile to everyone’s face. He was seen dancing behind Drax’s back and now he will be reprising his role in GOTG Vol. 2 uttering the phrase “I am Groot”, the voice-over would be given by famous actor Vin Diesel.
Baby Groot has found his way on the cover of Empire magazine May edition with a mangled mess of cassette tape titled Awesome Mix Vol. 2, the last gift Star Lord got from his dying mother. Just like before, the awesome mix will play an important role in the GOTG Vol.2 soundtrack.
While talking to an entertainment website Screenrant, Vin Diesel said –
“I’m excited about Baby Groot; he’s just too fun. And in Infinity War, I have to talk to the Russo brothers and find out how this is all gonna go down. I know somewhere in the Marvel universe there is a moment when you will see Groot and Hulk have a few words. I think there’s gonna be a moment that we’re all waiting for, and whether you know it or not, you are waiting to see Groot and the Hulk get down”.
“He’s such an interesting character, and there’s so much to learn about him, and you know he, I’d love to go back to his planet and learn more about him and I think the world would. He’s really a genius on a lot of levels, just we can only hear him say “I Am Groot” because of our sophistication level, not his.”
He may have said in jest, but the beauty of MCU is that nothing is impossible.
The GOTG Vol. 2 is scheduled to release on May 5, 2017.
