groot guardians of the galaxy

We all know by now that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ has become one of the gems in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and Groot is an amazing character, but did you know one of his more entertaining scenes was cut from the film? Sadly when taking a gamble of this nature and having strict timelines there just isn’t enough room for every scene that the screen writers come up with and one of the more fun ones that involve our favorite talking tree wasn’t included in the film. Thankfully we’ll have a chance to see more of Groot before ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2‘ ends up being released. How? With extended scenes when the home version is released!

In fact, it also includes a piece where Groot actually ends up not taking Rocket Raccoon’s side! It all happens when Rocket was laughing with his very obnoxious fake laugh about the plan that Peter Quill came up with on the spot to stop Ronan.

According to Gunn, “In the long version of the scene where Rocket is laughing at Quill, Quill gets very offended by that and takes a vote of the other Guardians to see who thinks that the laugh is fake. It’s a pretty fake laugh, and I think Rocket gets hurt that Groot goes against him.” Sorry Rocket, everyone thought it was a fake laugh.

Need a refresher on the scene? Probably not as you are already remembering it, however let’s let you re-watch it as well!

I’m sure we’ll get plenty more ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in the sequel. Speaking of which, Gunn had a couple of words to say about the next film:

“I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.” Not only that but he teased what the opening sequence for the movie was going to be! “What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes. In really horribly brutal fashion.”

Knowing Gunn, it’s hard to really say if he’s joking or not. As Marvel clearly will want to keep the film family friendly, it is doubtful that their deaths will be brutal or actually happen assuming the above is true. A complete fake out of them biting the big one? I could see that as totally feasible.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ is set to blast into our theaters in 2017!
