    But his performance in the movie was rather wooden.

    And you can not find more of those mushrooms for Verne?

    Groot was much more talkative when he first appeared as a hostile alien invader in a 1960 issue of Tales to Astonish.
    He’s been around longer than any of Marvel’s other heroes, except for the WWII-era heroes who originated when Marvel was Timely Comics.
    It’s been retconned that his species’ larynx stiffens as they age, requiring them to convey meaning through complex variations of inflection in the few words that they say.

    Just admit that Marvel stole the idea of talking trees from J.R.Tolken.

    Good thing someone hasn’t told Verne about the TMNT

    You think Tolkien came up with it first?

    Groot had a role in an early Clint Eastwood movie.

    The 1939 Wizard of Oz movie had a foul-tempered talking apple tree, well before the first Tolkien novel was published, and close to when they started to be written.
    I’ve never read the original 1900 Oz novel, so I don’t know if the apple tree or a similar scene was in there.
    Talking trees are fairly common in mythology anyway.
