guardians of the galaxy deleted scene

One of the great strengths of Guardians of the Galaxy is how it just drops you into the deep end of this crazy, cosmic universe and expects you to keep up with it. Director James Gunn trusts the audience enough to just with roll every little weird thing that he throws their way. Here is a galaxy teeming with life and occupied with countless different species and cultures. The film doesn’t dwell on the details – it just builds a colorful world and drives you through it at full speed.

That’s why it felt totally okay that there was never a scene in the movie where Dave Bautista‘s hilariously literal Drax sat down and explained where all of the tattoos and carefully designed scars on his body came from. We don’t need that information! The look of the character and his body art tells us everything we need to know.

However, a newly revealed Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene is literally a scene where Drax sits down and explains where all of the tattoos and carefully designed scars on his body came from.

original star-lord design

If we were to rank all of the major Hollywood filmmakers based on how good they are with social media, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn would rank somewhere near the top. Whether he’s interacting with fans or shooting down rumors, Gunn uses Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram better than just about anyone who is making massively expensive blockbuster movies.

From time to time, he also shares behind-the-scenes photos and anecdotes from set. In today’s edition of “James Gunn Was Interesting On Social Media Again,” we have a look at some early designs of Star-Lord’s mask. Although certainly recognizable as the headgear Chris Pratt‘s Peter Quill wears during Guardians of the Galaxy, there are enough little differences to give you newfound appreciation for how tiny little details make or break a superhero costume. Check out the original Star-Lord design for yourself after the jump.

guardians of the galaxy 2 details

James Gunn is very good at Twitter. He was very good at Twitter back in the olden days, when he was just the mad genius behind Slither and Super. Now that he’s the director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he’s taken his larger profile in stride. Few filmmakers are as good at engaging their fans on social media and toeing the company line. It’s a tricky balance that Gunn makes look easy.

In today’s edition of “James Gunn throws hungry comic book fans a bone,” Gunn offered himself up for a Twitter Q&A, answering questions on a variety of subjects from normal fans and fans who just so happened to play Darth Vader back in the day. However, most of the questions revolved around the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Gunn obliged, sharing more than a few interesting tidbits.

Let’s dive into this, and find out what director James Gunn has to say.

Be warned speculation about possible spoilers follows after the jump.

howard the duck movie

Of all the Easter eggs and references scattered throughout Guardians of the Galaxy, the last-minute cameo from Howard the Duck is undoubtedly the best and weirdest. It takes a certain amount of nerve to drop one of Marvel‘s strangest characters into a movie already packed with niche C-listers, so you have to admire director James Gunn‘s choice to end his big, weird movie with a big, weird character.

However, Guardians of the Galaxy was a massive hit, transforming the likes of Star-Lord and Drax into household names. The same wave of instant popularity also washed over Howard. Suddenly, normal people were interested in this anthropomorphized alien duck, which is just plain weird. It must be especially weird for Howard’s voice actor, Seth Green, who had to make it known at this year’s New York Comic-Con that there are currently no plans for a Howard the Duck movie. Not even after Marvel announced three untitled films for 2020.

Check out the last Howard the Duck movie update after the jump.
