James Gunn Cut Easter Egg Laden Scene From ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’

GuardiansEaster egg fans can cast a frown today as the scene with the most easter eggs was cut from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. James Gunn revealed the information during an interview with Collider where he said the following:

“Unfortunately we had a sort of terrible cutting — one of our scenes we cut was with Grandpa Quill on earth, and we had a lot of Easter Eggs in that scene. As much as we had in the collector’s museum, probably more.”

Gunn plans to release an image of the scene on his social media at some point, but we shouldn’t expect to see it on the Blu-ray. The director says that while 13 minutes were removed from the first theatrical cut, only about 2-3 will be making the Blu-ray release. The final cut will have plenty of easter eggs remaining Gunn assured, they just won’t all be packed into one scene.

Since Gunn plans on releasing an image of the easter eggs, fans are left to wonder what could tidbits could have been present. The scene took place on Earth, so it’s unlikely we’d get any cool cosmic appearances there.

Easter egg hunters still haven’t found the final Guardians of the Galaxy easter egg though, so maybe it was good that Gunn didn’t continue hiding even more in the sequel.

10 Cosmic Heroes We Want To See In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’

Guardians

It’s official: James Gunn has confirmed that that he will be returning to both write and direct the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which is just phenomenal news. Gunn has created something really special with these films. He took third-tier (at best) comic book characters that most fans didn’t yet know they needed to love and turned their story into not one, but two blockbuster movies that are major hits, both critically (Vol. 2 is getting mostly positive buzz on social media following press screenings) and financially (the sequel’s currently tracking at about $150 million for its opening weekend).

In his Facebook post, Gunn stated that Guardians Vol. 3 will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” He also made a brief mention of “some of the other forthcoming heroes” that could be appearing in the series. With these things in mind, we thought it would be a wonderful idea to explore some of the cosmic Marvel characters that fans might like to see in the third installment.

Before we jump in, a couple caveats. While it would surely be a lot of fun to see some of the Earthbound MCU characters mixing it up with the team in space, this list is only going to feature cosmic-based Marvel characters. The film will hit theaters after the Guardians’ introduction to Tony and Cap and the gang in Avengers: Infinity War, so we may still see that happen anyway. Also, I’m sure there are plenty of fantastic cosmic villains that would be great fits to antagonize the team in the third film, but we’re only focusing on the good guys in this list. Also, as amazing as it would be to see Silver Surfer or Galactus in the MCU, we’re not including anyone that Marvel doesn’t currently own the rights to, so don’t expect to see Agent Venom or Kitty Pryde or any of the other non-MCU characters that have served on the team in the comics on this list either. Also, it should be noted that I have not yet seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so if any of these characters do appear, my apologies for the wasted entry.

Now, without further adieu, here are the 10 cosmic Marvel heroes we want to see in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
