Drax Drunkenly Explains His Tattoos in This New Guardians of the Galaxy Deleted Scene

Tucked away in the recently released Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Blu-ray megaset are a few never-before-seen deleted scenes, including this one, where a drunken Drax the Destroyer discusses the origins of his tattoos with a couple of DT hallucinations.


Hmm? Those aren’t delusions spurred from Drax’s alcohol abuse, but instead are early CG versions of Groot and Rocket Raccoon, which were never completed because the scene was dropped early enough in production it would have been silly to spend the money to fully animate them? Oh. Yeah, okay, that makes more sense.

Few of the Marvel movies were edited tighter than Guardians (Winter Soldier comes to mind), but that said, I would not have minded sitting through this scene. Bautista owned every scene he was in, and the quiet moments were what fleshed (or, in Groot’s case, barked) this film out.

I’ll trust the editing team, but so often the Marvel cut scenes make me want to shake someone and loudly demand why this footage didn’t make it to the screen.
