Despite all the reasons that Guardians of the Galaxy was supposed to be a risk for Marvel Studios, it turned out to be one of their most financially successful movies. Even before the film had debuted, Marvel was so confident in what they had put together that they green lit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 right before. The sequel is still a few months away at this point, but the recent teaser trailer made one thing abundantly clear: everyone loves Baby Groot. Some may look at him as simply a marketing ploy, but director James Gunn insists he is anything but.
It appears as though Groot will retain his Baby Groot form for the majority of the sequel, but with the Guardians being called upon to fight Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, Groot’s full-sized muscle should be needed. If this is the case, what new ideas could Marvel implement for Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy 3? Well, if the internet has its way, it could come in the form of Jennifer Lawrence playing She-Groot.
ET Canada had the chance to talk to Lawrence and her Passengers co-star Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord, and asked them (1:45 mark in the video above) if they were aware of a fan casting that had started. Both were made aware of the interest of Lawrence playing She-Groot (or Lady Groot depending on who you ask), and while it mainly plays out as a joke, Lawrence does say that she likes the idea of her as Groot.
