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 recently found his way on the cover of Empire magazine 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. Vin Diesel said in an interview with ScreenRant –
“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”.
Diesel wants Groot to have a sit in with Hulk but he ain’t alone in having a meeting with an Avenger. Batista a.k.a Drax expressed his desire to meet Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War. He told ScreenRant in an interview –
“Oh, I’ve said for years, and years, and years. It’s Robert Downey Jr./Tony Stark, man. I think there’s so much humor to be had there with Drax and Tony Stark. With him being such a sarcastic bastard and Drax taking everything so literally. I think there’s tons of humor to be had there. I’m also a huge fan of Robert’s.”
Well, they may have said in jest, but anything is possible in the MCU.
