Guardians of the Galaxy fans were thrilled when Marvel finally announced in October that a dancing baby Groot toy would be out in time for Christmas. At the same time, though, it was hard not to wonder why it had taken Marvel/Disney so damn long. Wouldn’t the obvious move have been to have the merch ready so audiences could fork over their money the minute they walked out of the theater? Was it really possible they had no idea the film would inspire such demand?
According to director James Gunn, there’s actually a very good reason why a dancing baby Groot toy wasn’t ready earlier. Read his explanation after the jump, and then decide for yourself whether it justifies all the long, lonely weeks we’ve spent without a dancing baby Groot toy to cheer us up.

Just as they do with their movies, Marvel Studios likes to give audiences a little something extra with their Blu-rays. For a while, that meant One-Shots — the short films that took place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, it means a bevy of special features like those you’d find on pretty much any Blu-ray. However, they way the studio “makes it all Marvel” is to provide enough inside jokes and fan-specific content that non-fans will enjoy it, but Marvel fans will flip out. The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray is no exception.
We got a glimpse at all of the video special features on the disc and there is so much for Marvel fans to dig into. Below, read 10 of the most awesome things you’ll find on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray special features. Read More »
Spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy follow.
The ending of Guardians of the Galaxy is perfect. The day is won, Star Lord gets his ship back, he opens up that new Awesome Mix and we get to see a montage of a bunch of the main characters. However, at a press event for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film, writer/director James Gunn revealed that final montage originally contained three extra characters: The Collector (Benicio Del Toro), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Grandpa Quill (Gregg Henry). Each character shot an ending to their story that was going to be used in that scene, but was eventually cut out.
We spoke to Gunn after that revelation and asked for a few more details. He gave them up, and his explanation of what happened to Nebula, The Collector and Grandpa Quill describes an alternate ending to Guardians of the Galaxy.
