guardian of the galaxy Director James Gunn has finally revealed how Groot met Rocket.

This is the end of the MCU series Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 But the origins of how some of the crew members met have remained a mystery.

Gunn, now co-CEO and co-chairman of DC Studios, answered questions about the trilogy on Threads. He admitted that he originally planned to portray the scene where Groot and Rocket first meet in the short film with Tibius Lark, a character mentioned in the first film.

“I wrote a short film explaining how Rocket and Groot met,” he revealed. “A storyboard was created, locations were researched, and test footage was created (seen at SDCC in a cut-together ‘trailer’ after 12 days of filming). But I didn’t have time to do that because Vol 1 was being beefed up.

“In it, Tibius Lark, Groot, and Rocket were all trapped in a deep underground well. Tibius was dying. He explained to Rocket that he had been taking care of Groot for years. I did, he explained to Rocket. [Tibius] He was a former keeper of the galaxy’s fucking zoo,” continued Gunn.

“He explained that he saved Groot, who was on display there, and that Groot was a loyal friend. He asked Rocket to take care of him, and he died. As he died, Rocket looked down in his dark cell and realized he knew himself. [half] His body shattered and became like a machine.

“The guards on the ground heard something rumble and turned around to see Rocket and Groot popping out of the ground. Rocket was on Groot’s shoulder, and Tibius was in Rocket’s hand. There was a machine gun made out of Lark’s body, and he shot all the guards and they fled.” He concluded, “I stayed with the Guardian until I met him. That was Tibius Lark.” .
