The countdown to the release of Avengers: Infinity War has officially begun, and one of the cast members of the film is celebrating in a very adorable way.
Vin Diesel, who plays Groot at the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recently took part in a special surprise with Marvel Studios. In a video, which can be seen above, Diesel surprises an MCU fan with a giant Groot plush and an autographed poster.
The video itself is very nice and illustrates how much Diesel performance has resonated like the Marvel Fanatics talking tree.
"I think also, all of Groot's personality and who he was, was there on the page and then you forgot about it while filming the first movie", Guardians of the Galaxy writer / director James Gunn said about the character during an interview last year. "But now everyone knows Groot so well that we have a much bigger conscience, me and the cast, of a baby Groot that is there at all times, and he being one of the members of the scene … I think it's a character better written than the first Groot in some aspects, not that it was badly written, but I think it's a more complete character. "
And the expectations for the character's return Infinity War are quite high, although the fans had trouble deciphering exactly how old Groot will be.
"People ask how fast Groot grows, because in his appearance in the Infinity War trailer he was an ADOLESCENT (not a 'teenager' as has been reported in many places)," explained Gunn. in a Facebook post last year. "This is exactly the same state of growth seen in the post credits scene of vol.2 : Groot Teen."
"Groot and humans do not grow at an exchange rate Exactly, "Gunn continued." So, although two months seems to be about two years (as Baby Groot seems to behave more or less like a two-year-old child), it's not fair to assume that every month is a year for Groot. "
