Once labelled as a creative risk across the board, James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy has stolen the hearts of Marvel fans all the while taking up residence at the US box office — recently coasting past the $300 million mark.
With a colourful cast of characters, smart writing and a classic soundtrack to boot, the film was truly more than the sum of its parts and is held up by many as the studio’s best feature to date. So, with Star Lord and co. remaining on the lips of moviegoers worldwide, Gunn has taken to Instagram to reveal a behind-the-scenes photo and a second deleted scene.
Essentially, the clip — which unfortunately remained on the cutting room floor — saw the prison guard who was so fond of Peter Quill’s walkman dancing to some good ol’ 70s rock.
“Spencer [Wilding] got the Play-Doh for a scene where he danced through the prison listening to Quill’s Walkman (specifically, Magic by Pilot). We cut the scene for many reasons, but it was awesome and hilarious and Spence more than deserved his rarely-given Play-Doh (and, yes, before you ask me a thousand times below, it WILL be on the Blu-Ray outtakes, and no I will not tell you the release date – you can go see the movie again! It’s still out!) Have a great day (or night depending on where you are).”
While Gunn refused to spill the beans of the Blu-Ray release for Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s pleasing to note that the aforementioned scene will feature on the outtakes come release. Of course, given that Guardian’s run time stretched to two hours and was already brimming with eccentric dance routines, perhaps the decision to omit the clip from the final product was the right decision. Sometimes you can really have too much of a good thing.
We’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that the outtakes for Guardians of the Galaxy includes a blooper reel, too — with Groot messing up his lines for the umpteenth time.
