Avengers: Endgame first trailer came out last week and fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are busy discussing it scene by scene. In the latest dissection by fans, some have pointed out that a dead character from Avengers: Infinity War has somehow made an appearance in the teaser.

Earlier this week, fans on Twitter started discussing the possibility of Groot's appearance in Avengers: Endgame teaser trailer. It all started when a fan uploaded a screenshot from Endgame teaser in which we can see Tony Stark looking from the spaceship as he drifts into the unknown space.

In the uploaded pictures, apart from Tony Stark, something else is visible and it is not Nebula, who also survived Thanos' snap.

Check out the screenshot below:

Obviously, it is not Groot, as mentioned below, he did not survive Thanos' snap. However, it does not mean that MCU fans won't try to get inside the minds of the creative team behind the upcoming movie. Soon after the above tweet went viral, many fans started to come and discuss the possibility of Groot joining Tony Stark on Titan.

If this was not enough, then Marvel fans even edited the screenshot to actually see what's that Groot-looking image truly is.

In Avengers: Infinity War, Groot was with Thor when the Asgardian went on to Nidavellir to get himself a weapon which can actually destroy Thanos once and for all. Following which, Groot, Thor, and Rocket Raccoon comes to the Earth and joins Captain America and other Avengers in Wakanda where they fight Thanos' army.

After Thanos got his hand on all the six Infinity Stones, he snapped his fingers, as he promised earlier. His decimation caused the lives of half of the Universe including some superheroes like Doctor Strange, Peter Parker, T'Challa, and Groot.

So, the theory and the released pictures by fans are nothing but just a mere speculation.


Groot is an extraterrestrial, sentient tree-like creature, which starred in both Guardians of the Galaxy movie series. As per comics, he can absorb wood as food, and even has the ability to regenerate. In the past, he has been seemingly killed on multiple occasions, each time regrowing from a sprig.

Now, as he has decimated by Thanos' finger, it would be interesting to see how the Russo Brothers intend to bring him back in Avengers: Endgame, which is scheduled to release on April 26, 2019.
