A new Japanese poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has made its merry way online over the weekend, featuring the most adorable sapling in the history of cinema, Baby Groot.

The poster features Baby Groot (who is still voiced by Vin Diesel) ready to light a match on top of a pile of dynamite. The fun piece of promo material was probably done in reaction to Baby Groot being so eager to detonate Rocket Raccoon's explosives, as seen in the teaser trailer below ... though I'm pretty sure this scene won't actually play out in the movie (OR WILL IT?)

Allow Full Screen: 

Even though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still a couple of months away, I think it's safe to say Baby Groot has already become the most popular character of director James Gunn's hotly anticipated sequel (he's totally mine), so showcasing the cute little critter is a great move on Marvel's part. Not that we need much convincing to join the crew of the Milano for a second round of cosmic shenanigans in the first place!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will soar into movie theaters on May 5.
