The motion-capture performer, whose recent endeavors include the Planet of the Apes trilogy as Rocket, sat down with Yahoo and seemingly confirmed his involvement in the beloved Marvel franchise moving forward:
Yes, I am playing teenage Groot, I’m having a blast with it. It’s really, really fun. I can’t say too much about him, but he’s coming of age, so you’ll see the teenager find a mentor to look up to and to model himself after. The character’s great, and the films are going to be great. We’ve got such an amazing cast and a great pair of directors at the helm. The Russos allow the actors to jam on scenes together to the point where it just feels great and everybody gets their moments.
