It’s not irregular for movies to excise material during the editing process. Most of the time it’s just a case of trimming the fat, removing scenes or whole subplots that either hinder the film or add little to the overall product.

On occasion, however, deleted scenes have revealed themselves to be exciting in their own right – and sometimes better than anything in the final film. Think the Michael Jai White sword fight in Kill Bill Vol. 2, or the original ‘return to Krypton’ opening of Superman Returns. These are scenes that could have added something extra to questionable films, films which could have used the added quality.
