You don't have to sell Marvel fans on loving Deadpool or Baby Groot, but what if they combined forces?
Well, that's exactly what HurleyFX managed to create in exquisite fashion. He shared a video of his Grootpool creation, which comes with the adorable smile fans are accustomed to with a Deadpool red and black color scheme. HurleyFX also equipped him with some of Deadpool's trademark weapons, including a set of katanas and pistols.
If you're interested in grabbing one, you can contact HurleyFX on social media, but in the meantime, you can see the completed Grootpool below.
Groot was the breakout star of the original Guardians and was the heart of the sequel. James Gunn acknowledges that was a conscious decision, formed after they got a handle on the character in the original.
"I think also, the whole personality of Groot and who he was, it was there on the page and then you forget about it while you were shooting the first movie," Gunn continues. "But now everyone knows Groot so well that we have much larger awareness, me and the cast, of a baby Groot being there at all times. And him being one of the members in the scene...I think he's a better-written character than the first Groot in some ways. Not that he was poorly written at all, but I think he's just more complete character."
