This year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 saw Baby Groot take center stage. In the first film, Groot was a fully-grown behemoth of a character, but in the second one, he was a younger, dumber, sillier character in need of all the love and affection that the rest of the Guardians had to offer.

However, as we saw in one of the post-credits scenes in the film, Groot is now a teenager, and that comes with all sorts of new difficulties. Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Terry Notary — who does the motion performance for Groot in Avengers: Infinity War — discussed what we can expect from the character in the upcoming film:

“Yes, I am playing teenage Groot. I’m having a blast with it. It’s really, really fun. I can’t say too much about him, but he’s coming of age, so you’ll see the teenager find a mentor to look up to and to model himself after. The character’s great, and the films are going to be great. We’ve got such an amazing cast and a great pair of directors at the helm. The Russos allow the actors to jam on scenes together to the point where it just feels great and everybody gets their moments.”

That finding a mentor part is interesting. The rest of the Guardians are very much like parents to Groot, so we can’t help but wonder if there will be an Avenger that Groot decides to look up to (Hulk, anyone?).

Who do you think Groot will look up to in the film? Let us know your guesses down below!

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
