In some not slightly shocking in the slightest news, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed on Facebook that the gravelly voiced badass that is Vin Diesel will be reprising his role as the cutest tree in the galaxy - Groot!
After the ending of the inaugural adventure with the guardians, it was safe to think perhaps Groot would be sitting the movie out seeing as we left him as a tiny Grootling, attempting to avoid the gaze of a dagger polishing Drax.
But apparently not, as in response to a Facebook users' simple question, Gunn was simple in the answer:
Though GOTG 3 maybe looking ahead a little too much.
Some may argue and say "well Diesel pretty much covered the emotional range of the Flora colossus, so why's he coming back? Couldn't they just reuse his voiceovers?" Well they could've, but that wouldn't be much of a team effort now, would it?
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will release May 5, 2017.
