Baby Groot steals the show in Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2, but he’s just getting warmed up!
In fact, the character could even get much bigger, according to Vin Diesel.
Speaking to USA Today the actor says the Groot of the first movie isn’t his full size, and we have yet to see that happen.
“The first Groot we saw was a freshman in college,” he says. “This Groot is in nursery school. Wait ’til we see the full-fledged working-man Groot. Wait ’til we see Groot!”
As for which Groot he prefers, Diesel does not see much difference between them. To him, they are “one and the same.”
“It’s like saying, ‘Who do I like better, grade-school Vin or high-school Vin?,” he jokes. “Duh, they are the same, but high-school Vin could drive some fast cars.”
Diesel is set to return in Avengers: Infinity War and Guardians 3. The actor remains keen on reprising Groot in the future, and he wants a spin-off to happen.
“James Gunn has always wanted a Rocket and Groot movie,” he says. “And I know that Disney is very much into being successful. And the most successful poster in Disney’s future is the poster that has ‘Groot vs. Hulk.’ … (The world) cannot wait to see it.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens on May 5.
