Guardians of the Galaxy Deleted Scene Teased

Guardians of the Galaxy has become the biggest hit of the summer and part of that is because of its awesome soundtrack. If you haven’t been rocking out to it for the past couple of months then you are missing out. But did you know there was supposed to be another sweet tune included in the film?

James Gunn revealed on his Instagram that he’d had to cut an extra sequence involving the song “Magic” by Pilot:

Here’s me and the actor Spencer Wilding who played the Mean Guard who jabs Quill in the prison with the electrical staff and gets his comeuppance to Escape (the Piña Colada Song). He also has a little container of Play-Doh. Why Play-Doh? Because I would keep a pile of little Play-Doh containers onset and if someone did an especially amazing job that day – whether it was an actor, a grip, a stunt man, or a PA – they’d get a canister of Play-Doh. I probably only gave about 40 containers out over the entire shoot – on an 85 day schedule with a crew of a couple hundred, that isn’t much. I chose Play-Doh because I love the smell of it – opening a new container and smelling it puts me in a creative, child-like place. And who doesn’t love playing with Play-Doh (I swear Play-Doh isn’t paying for this post)? Anway, Spencer 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 in where you are).

So glad he mentioned that it will be on the Blu-ray, otherwise he would have received a thousand, or million, comments asking about it, half of which would be from me. But how much longer will we have to wait to see it? And will there be any more awesome music numbers to look forward to when Guardians of the Galaxy comes to DVD? What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
