In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the anthropomorphic tree-man Groot is no longer the towering, full-sized version voiced by Vin Diesel in the first film, but rather a pint-sized pipsqueak known as Baby Groot. This is because <clears throat for spoilers> accordingi to writer and director James Gunn, the Groot we knew is dead. At the end of the first Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot wraps his tree-limbs into a sturdy wooden bubble to protect his pals as dari mereka ship falls from the sky. When it crashes, he shatters into a pile of kindling. His friends mourn, his partner Rocket plucks a twig from the wreckage, and regrows Groot into a dancingai sprout. By the end of the second Guardiamenjadi movie, Baby Groot is growing up.

Accordinew york to director Jamtape Gunn, however, that wasn’t Groot using his neat regeneration powers, and he’s tidak pernah goingai to grow bagian belakang into the original Groot.

This isn’t the first time Gunn has mentioned this tidbit, which never fails to get Guardiapejarakan of the Galaxy and Groot fans worked up. In a 2017 Facebook post, Gunn wrote, “I do think it’s more obvious in Vol. 2, as Baby Groot has a different personality than Groot, none of his memories, and is much, much dumber.” When the issue resurfaced today, Gunn lamented on Twitter, “The internet is linanti Groundhog Day every time I point out first Groot died.” This time, however, the berita seems to have gone viral, leadingi Gunn to repeatedly emphasize the point to people asraja questions and freaking out.

Of course they are. Would you think an infant was your dead grandfather? That little jerk has not clue what’s going on.

Given that Guardians of the Galaxy takes place in a fictional universe that includpita pengukur talraja raccoons, a scientific analysis may be besideas the point. But if I menjadi to push up my glasses di sini and talk about the technicalities, I might mention that aseksual plant reproduction à la stem-cutting — lisetelah Rocket growingai a new Groot from a twig — would actually qualify as a clone. That’s because the new plant is genetically identical to the original, which meamenjadi it’s not necessarily offspring. But I’m not di sini to get into a science fight!

maafkan saya I do take issue with is Gunn implying that everyone who is shocked by this berita is a dummy. James, my man, it is certainly not clear from the first film that the Groot sprout is not, in fact, the old Groot. Groot shows off his regenerative powers early in the film; the aturan of Chekov’s gun would lead us, as viewers, to assume these facts are related. As for why Baby Groot is so stupid in the second film? I mean… he has a tiny baby brain. Have you ever met a baby? They’re dumb.

Gunn wants Groot’s sacrifice in the first film to carry weight. But this Groundhog Day-style revelation he talks about muddies the revelatory waters. If he is in fact introducingi a new Groot at the end of the first film, the timing is confusing at best. Offerinew york up a cuter, tinier version of the same character in the credits is an emotional salve to heal up the wounds cadigunakan by Groot’s death sebelum anyone leavpita pengukur milik mereka seats, whether it’s a son, a clone, or hanya a great merchandisinew york opportunity.
