All throughout Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Baby Groot stole our hearts with his cute antics. Who can forget that opening scene set to Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky.” But by the time the end credits started to roll, Baby Groot transformed into his much less lovable and more annoying self—Teen Groot. Director James Gunn was recently asked which Groot would appear in Avengers: Infinity War, and to our chagrin he revealed it’s Teen Groot.
During an interview with Cinema Blend, Gunn was asked if Groot would look the same like he did in the Guardians Vol. 2 post-credit scene (as Teen Groot) in his next movie appearance, Avengers: Infinity War. That answer as a disappointing yes.
“[Teen Groot] is exactly the same,” Gunn opened up. “That’s exactly the Groot we designed for Infinity War. Well, basically those are at the same time.”
There you go. Sadly, we’ll be stuck with Teen Groot instead of Baby Groot the next time we see him.
Groot has gone through four major changes in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies. For most of the first movie, he was normal adult Groot, but in the climactic battle with Ronan the Accuser, Groot sacrifices himself and is blown up. Rocket gathers some parts of him and regrows him into Baby Groot (stage one). By the time Vol. 2 rolls around, Baby Groot (stage two) is a little bigger and can now walk. He’s just as adorable. By the end of the movie he has grown into Teen Groot and he’ll stay that way in Infinity War.
We should eventually see the return of adult Groot by Avengers 4 or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
James Gunn has showed a propensity of developing the best aspects of Groot, so we trust him to bring out the best of Teen Groot. There’s a lot of funny dimensions of Teen Groot Gunn and Infinity War directors the Russo Brothers can mess around with. It’ll be interesting to see what exactly they come up with.
Avengers: Infinity War will be in theaters May 4, 2018.
