If you haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just yet, proceed with caution, as there are spoilers ahead.
For those of you who have seen it (provided that you didn't leave the cinema early on), you'd know that this latest installment of the MCU has set a record for including the largest number of post-credit scenes! There were five in all.
In my humble opinion, it was probably the most fun I ever had watching movie credits. I mean, the soundtrack was amazing, and there were five short films to enjoy, not to mention the fact that the cast was treating us with their own dance numbers in the actual credits.
We saw Kraglin trying to practice using Yondu's arrow. Then there was Sylvester Stallone as Starhawk gathering a group of ravager captains who, as it turns out, were the original Guardians of the Galaxy in the comics!
We also saw Ayesha creating Adam (Warlock), a teenaged Groot, and Stan Lee hanging out with the mysterious and powerful alien race, the Watchers.
But did you know that there was supposed to be a sixth credit scene? One that was meant to bring back a character who we thought had died in the movie?
Don't get your hopes up, though -- it was not someone that we cared about.
It was supposed to be Gamora and Mantis speaking aboard the group's new spaceship, which used to be a part of Yondu's larger flagship. It is there that they would hear the scream of the Ravager named Gef, played by Steve Agee, who is now lying wounded aboard the craft.
As it turns out, he survived Yondu's awesome purge of his former crew. Just to refresh your memory, Gef was Taserface's supporter who was drinking alone when Yondu's arrow pierced through him. Which makes one wonder how he survived ... Perhaps his species has a strong healing factor?
Anyway, Gef is not really a major character, so his revival won't probably impact the MCU.
James Gunn actually filmed this scene so maybe we'll be getting this in DVD/Bluray extras when it comes out. So watch out for that; I know I will!
