    Gunn revealed he had to cut a scene with Grandpa Quill that would have a had a ton of easter eggs, there's a lot of deleted material that won't make it to the Blu-Ray and 13 minutes were trimmed down to get the theatrical cut.

    I'm not surprised the footage likely won't be on the Blu-ray. Disney's MCU sets have been relatively light in that regard. That's why I'm excited Sony is releasing Spider-Man: Homecoming and not Disney. The Blu-ray extras for Spider-Man: Homecoming will probably be packed! The last time we saw that with an MCU set is likely Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011 with Paramount or even Iron Man 2. Current sets like Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange are improving the bonus features though so I have to give them that.

    As for Quill's grandpa, I'm curious why he'd be in the movie, unless he had a role in the comics that I don't know about. Unless it's Ego's dad; then I'd be interested! :D

    Probably a book end to his small appearance at the start of the first GoTG.

    Livestream of red carpet at premiere


    Hasselhoff hinted he might be in the movie in addition to contributing to the soundtrack.

    Rosenbaum hinted he appears with Stallone.

    We now know which character was cut from the first drafts of the GotG script: Adam Warlock! However, Gunn strongly suggests he'll probably be in film 3.

    Too bad; I would have liked to see him in time for Infinity War.

    Hmmm. This coupled with the announcement Gunn will kinda be over all things cosmic, we have something to look forward to. I'm optimistic about Warlock showing up in Avengers 4.

    Wasn't there a rumor of Magus appearing in IW? They could even to a standalone too. At this point, I'm not sure I would've cared for Warlock under Gunn direction. It would be too weird for my taste. I mean can you imagine a Silver Surfer film helmed by Tarantino?

    I had a feeling the character Gunn cut was Adam Warlock, so that's a little disappointing, but at least there are plans for him in the MCU :D.

    Yes. I think it was this article from June 2015.

    Anyway, for Vol. 2 - Feige comments on the major cameos. It's a given, but from now on may be a good time to skip on this thread because the spoilers will be coming.

    Fillion posted a photo from his cut cameo.

    So now that the shared theme for all the cameos is confirmed, I guess the only question left is who is playing who...

    I'm also guessing Fillion's cameo was going to entail Peter watching an old Arkon movie starring Simon Williams when he was a kid, which partially inspired his Star-Lord persona :cool:.

    Which then begs the question of the current status of Simon in the MCU :sweat:.

    Must still be acting since one of his movies was about Tony Stark.

    It's weird because wasn't an AU version of him also a Guardian in the comics?

    Yep, the original Guardians featured a version of him going by the codename "Hollywood" who eventually joined up with the Galactic Guardians off-shoot of the original team :).*

    It would be nice to see Nathan play a version of the character in Guardians Vol. 3 since he looks great in that picture. I'd rather he actually play Arkon and save a more accurate take on Simon Williams/Wonder Man in the future. He could be one of the new heroes in Phase 4 (probably as part of a team like Hawkeye and Vision, instead of getting his own movie).

    Yeah, I agree. I would love to see the West Coast Avengers MCU style. Simon Williams Hollywood version. Explore Wanda and Vision relationship. Then the new body and personality of Vision. It could distance him from becoming a 'Commander Data' copy. IMG_9227.png

    It'd be nice if there were more plans for Simon/Wonder Man in the future, but I can't help but think Fillion's role in this movie is just an Easter Egg and nothing more :(.

    Yeah, unfortunately that's more than likely a fact.
