James Gunn Gives Context To That Odd Thor: Ragnarok “Deleted Scene”

Possible SPOILERS ahead for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But you’ve seen that already, right?

On the digital release of Thor: Ragnarok, there is a surprising deleted scene featuring the dearly departed Yondu (Michael Rooker) in Asgard.

Suprising, of course, because Yondu would be dead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the time period of this cameo, but also because he references finding the offices of several Marvel Studios executives including Kevin Feige.

So, was this scene ever intended to be in the film, in cheeky Deadpool fashion?

According to Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, the “deleted scene” was never intended to appear in Ragnarok, but was rather a joke between Rooker and Taiki Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok.

Gunn took to twitter to describe why Rooker was all made up as Yondu if it was for a scene never meant to hit the big screen:

There you have it, just a little fun between the talented MCU filmmakers who all seem to be a part of one big happy family.

It turns out a majority of the footage shot for Disneyland’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout ride was shot alongside Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But, when the ride changed for Halloween, new material had to be shot, at the same time Ragnarok was in production.

There. Are you satisfied with this explanation about this odd, yet hilarious “deleted scene?” At least we get to see Yondu again without having to go to Disneyland… Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
