You’ve been warned, there will be Avengers: Infinity War spoilers below.

By this point, chances are good if you’ve wanted to see Avengers: Infinity War you’ve probably done it already. Even so, we’re going to give everybody as many chances as possible to turn away since since this article is going to be full of Infinity War spoilers. In any movie, no matter how that movie ends, each character will have a final line. Infinity War is no different. For the most part, we can easily understand what each character is saying though for some it’s a bit more difficult. James Gunn took to Twitter to answer a fan’s question about Groot, and Groot’s final line from Infinity War. Here’s your final warning that ahead there will be spoilers.

The ending of Infinity War is a bit of a punch in the gut. Thanos has retrieved all of the infinity stones, snapped his mad titan fingers, and sentenced half of the universe to death. That includes a good number of our heroes who simply vanish into ash in front of their fellow heroes. Many of these “deaths” have emotional weight, though I’m guessing most feel that Peter Parker maybe took the cake for the most possible feels. James Gunn may as well have just said “hold my beer.”

Answering a fan’s question on Twitter, Gunn took a moment to translate Groot’s final line to Rocket before he was whisked away:

Yep… Makes that emotional roadmap for the ending just a little bit different, doesn’t it? Gunn also confirmed that this translation was in the script, so he’s not just trying to pull some additional emotions out after the fact.

Now, as much as the writers and everybody else associated with the movie want you to believe that these deaths are permanent, we can pretty safely assume that at least some of the heroes that vanished into dust will be brought back in some way in the next movie. I mean, you can’t exactly have a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol: 3 if Rocket is the only Guardian left standing at the end of Infinity War. The follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming will be far less entertaining if there’s no Spider-Man, etc. That’s not to say that there won’t be lasting damage and lost heroes based on the events of Infinity War, but my guess is the body count as it relates specifically to heroes won’t be anywhere near as high as we’re being asked to believe.
