We are now living in a safe place to divulge Avengers Infinity War Spoilers so here it goes.
At the end of Infinity War when our heroes lose and half of them fade away into dust it has been revealed what Groot told Rocket.
Guardians of the Galaxy Director, James Gunn, decided to make Marvel fans cry a little harder when he revealed what teen Groot told Rocket as he faded out of existence. Gunn revealed he said “Dad.”
As Gunn has previously explained, Baby Groot isn’t the same Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy. This new Groot is actually the biological son of the creature from the first movie. So when teen Groot calls Rocket dad, he’s talking to the man who raised him—his adopted father.
Now please excuse us as we go cry…
