At the end of “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2” we saw baby Groot grow to a teenager, with Star Lord (Chris Pratt) scolding him for not having cleaned his room. The good news for fans of the cute tree is that James Gunn has confirmed that we will get to see more of the teenage Groot, with him to appear in “Avengers: Infinity War”.
The following is an excerpt from CinemaBlend, who confirmed with Gunn the age of Groot to appear in “Avengers: Infinity War”:
Having seen the Infinity War footage at D23 and Comic-Con, Groot did look very similar to the way he looks in the post-credits scene…
James Gunn: He’s exactly the same.
He is exactly the same.
James Gunn: That’s exactly the Groot we designed for Infinity War.
So then that scene is set four years after…
James Gunn: Well, basically those are at the same time.
The poster for “Avengers: Infinity War” that was released at Comic-Con also shows teenage Groot at the top left:
