5 things you don't know about Baby Groot of 'Guardians'

"For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 we needed very big sound stages because our sets are very large, even though a lot of the film is CGI (computer-generated imagery)".

The tree is reduced to a sapling in the sequel, and behaves like a precocious toddler.

The scene features secondary villain Ayesha, a golden goddess and ruler of the Sovereign people, played Elizabeth Debicki, who reveals she has invested all the resources of her people into a special birthing pod able to create the ideal being - Adam - intent on wreaking revenge on the Guardians of the Galaxy.

"We had discussions about it that", he said.

"And now my grandkids are gonna go to a great college because of the object, you know". "For what?' He's going to steal the scene".

US extends sanctions relief under Iran nuclear deal
The Trump administration will have to waive more sanctions next month if it wants to stick by the nuclear deal. Iran continues to pursue missile-related technologies capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.

The official went on to say that talks between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority appear to be promising. Trump would obviously be thrilled - as would we all - if he could negotiate peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

New cyber chaos appears to have been avoided in Europe: Europol
Large swathes of the NHS have been paralysed by the cyber attack, which hit 200,000 victims in 150 countries around the world. The cyber attack that crippled NHS computer systems is the biggest of its kind ever launched, security chiefs have said.

The art directors seem to have mined a mash-up of Roger Dean and Hipgnosis album covers for the overall look of the film, while the make-up artists' heavy handed maquillage have rendered all but Pratt and Russell unrecognisable from their real life selves.

Gamora (Zoe Saldana) must contend with Nebula (Karen Gillian), fellow daughter of Avengers baddie Thanos. Either way, we'll have to wait it out and see how the films unfold to determine what could be coming next.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released on May 5. By far the most loved character in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise is Groot, voiced by the indomitable Vin Diesel. Of course you've got the stunning fights and lovely planetary vistas, but the main draw of Vol. 2 is to see how the Guardians themselves grow and change; narrative seems to take a back-seat to characterisation. Kevin and I are working on what is going to become of the Marvel Cosmic Universe and where it's going to go. Many reviewers have already called "Vol. 2" better than the first, the monosyllabic Baby Groot is already a breakout star, and it's headed for a possible $140 million to $150 million opening weekend. He says "by listening, hearing music and watching movies I felt a little bit less alone and I hope that's what Guardians does for people".

Though I imagine it's hard to spoof an already near-spoof movie, Marvel really hit it on the mark this time.
