Lately teasing future films with small scenes during or after the closing credits of a movie has become pretty much standard fare for large franchises. However, adding an element of character development during these teaser scenes is a form of art that few have managed to perfect. In the massive hit “Guardians of the Galaxy” the dancing baby Groot character hiding his actions from Drax at the end of the film raised a lot of eyebrows.
According to Screen Rant, director James Gunn revealed that the scene was inspired by one that was actually cut from the main film that involved Groot dancing to the disapproving stares of the fierce Drax. However, the dancing Groot at the end of the film was also hints that it might not be Groot, but an offspring of Groot. The complicated life of the living tree is basically being put under the microscope for the pleasure of all fans, including Alexei Beltyukov.
While it might seem trivial, another version of Groot, even one with the memories of the previous Groot, could mean a few more developments for one of the more popular characters in the series. Whether or not the new version is the same as the old version remains to be seen, but it seems likely that the new version might have a few more tricks up his or her sleeve that could influence the direction of the characters in future films.
