Believe it or not, Thor: Ragnarok has already officially hit digital release this morning, and like many of the Marvel Studios films before it, it comes with plenty of special features that include deleted scenes. However, there is one scene that’s likely to confuse, more than anything.
You know who would be the least likely to show up in Thor: Ragnarok? How about that one character who died in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? That seemed to be Marvel Studios’ approach, as Yondu showed up in one of the many deleted scenes.
The scene is an “extension” of the tense one where Skurge, played by Karl Urban, is ordered to execute an Asgardian who opposed Hela. In the scene in the final cut, someone stops him at the last second. In this deleted scene, that “someone” is revealed to be Michael Rooker’s Yondu. Yondu asks where Kevin and Lou’s offices are, and then tells everyone to continue with their execution.

Not exactly the most sensical of scenes, and that’s because it was never meant to actually be in the film. Given that the Kevin and Lou line is meant to refer to producers Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito.
Honestly, I’m not sure what this scene was really intended to accomplish. If it was a one-off gag for the home release, that’s all well and cool, but then you have to realize that someone had to plan out this gig, arranging Rooker’s travel, makeup, and everything in-between, just for a five-second joke that wouldn’t even make the movie.
I guess it goes to show just how much fun they have at Marvel. What do you think of this scene? Let us know your thoughts down below!
