Marvel Confirms GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's Groot Will Only Say "I Am Groot" With Various Inflections

The new issue of Empire Magazine has hit stands today and there are plenty of new and interesting tidbits about upcoming Marvel films. Ever since raw footage was shown at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con for next summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, the fan base is dying to know more about Marvel's new space team.

Luckily for fans, Empire spoke with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige who was quite candid about many things Marvel-related. Feige opened up about one of the Guardians' team members with the one word sentence saying, tree-like monster known as Groot.

"Groot is a species that happens to look like trees look, and is quite communicative if you can understand the different inflections in the way he says, 'I am Groot.'"

Previously, many wondered if the big screen adaptation of Groot was going to say more than his one-line. But it sounds like Feige has confirmed it will still be the single sentence said in more than one way. 

Now the question arises about how actor Vin Diesel is allegedly voicing Groot. If Groot is saying one sentence multiple ways, is it really worth using such a great voice for a single sentence with carious inflections? Marvel Studios may think so, but there is still the thought of how Marvel likes to misdirect their fan base prior to movies releasing. Because of this, Groot could still be voiced by another actor while Diesel may actually be in line to voice the main villain in the Avengers sequel, Ultron. (See this theory article at the link below.)

It just doesn't feel right to have Diesel saying one line over and over again. Do you agree? Head over to The Daily SuperHero's Facebook page to share your thoughts on this by clicking right here to go there.
