I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot.
You might think there were only so many ways to say it, but apparently Vin Diesel has mastered them all.
After speculation last August that much loved character Groot would be getting more dialogue in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie than his traditional single line of 'I am Groot', it has now been revealed that Vin Diesel's acting skills were so refined that he could get all the necessary information for any given scene into that one line.
"Vin Diesel, where exactly did you leave the TV remote?"
"I am Groot."
"In the fridge? Of course! Got it."

The revelation, which will please fans of the comics, was confirmed by the movie's director James Gunn.
“The ways in which Vin Diesel says, ‘I Am Groot,’ I am utterly astounded,” Gunn told the Pointless podcast, claiming that the actor took his line totally seriously, attempting to understand and convey in each and every scene exactly what Groot wanted to get across, and always trying to capture his emotion or message in the three words “I am Groot.”
So are you pleased by this news? Would you have accepted a Groot that said anything else? And just how much are you looking forward to the second Marvel Super-group movie?
