Groot Getting Cut Down In Guardians of the Galaxy? He'll Make You Cry Says Karen Gillan (Video)



At the world premiere of Thor 2, Karen Gillan answers questions about Guardians of the Galaxy.

She talks about her character in the movie with Nebula, a villain, and is pressed about more information regarding Groot.

Karen Gillan happens to mention he will make you cry in the movie.

"We are going to see a tree talking and probably make us cry at some point," she said.

Groot in the comics does happen to be a talking tree, actually an alien Monarch of Planet X. To the "untrained" ear, Groot only appears to be saying three words, "I Am Groot," but his pal Rocket Raccoon is capable of translating and understanding more - at least that is what Rocket leads on.

It's possible that Gillan just let it slip that Groot gets the axe and gets killed off in the movie; however Groot is known to be able to grow back if a sprig of him survives.

The "Guardians of the Galaxy movie" has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glen Close as Nova Prime, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.
