With the upcoming release of Guardians of the Galaxy on Blu-ray, Marvel has released a deleted scene from the film. While the movie is filled with great characters, I felt that Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) didn’t get as much attention. Gamora had to be the grown up in the room, and Nebula’s only real purpose was to fight Gamora. However, after watching this deleted scene, leaving them on the cutting room floor may have been a wise decision. This scene adds nothing to the film (we know Gamora and Nebula are rivals), and the line readings are stilted and melodramatic. Guardians of the Galaxy is a space opera, but this is from a soap opera.
Hit the jump to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene. The film hits shelves on December 9th, and stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly and Peter Serafinowicz and features the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. Click here and here for more clips from the Blu-ray, and click here to pre-order.
Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios.
