If you finished watching Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters this past summer and thought to yourself, What if Ronan had accepted Star-Lord's dance-off challenge? then we have the ultimate outtake for you. Hit play below!
With Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Blu-ray and DVD in just a couple weeks, the folks at Marvel have been releasing some fantastic behind the scenes bonus material from the film, and this one may be the best yet. An alternate take on the sequence in the film where Chris Pratt's Star-Lord tries to distract the aforementioned war criminal, this video (courtesy of BuzzFeed) changes the tone a little bit by having Lee Pace's terrifying Ronan The Accuser break character to do a bit of hip shaking and hammer waving. What's even better, though, is that the dance fever winds up being a bit contagious - spreading not just to Zoe Saldana's Gamora and Dave Bautista's Drax The Destroyer, but also to the crowd of Xandarians hanging around the periphery (you can see them start to get down in the clip's waning seconds.
To get back to the introductory question, however, this video does force me to start thinking in Marvel Comics' classic "What If" style. Maybe after accepting Star-Lord's dance off challenge and grooving to the beat of The Five Stairsteps' "O-O-H Child," Ronan winds up having a complete personality shift - suddenly able to see the light in life he has never seen before. He willfully gives up his Infinity Stone to the Nova Corps, and even takes it one step further by telling them exactly how they can use it to take down Thanos. There: I just created an even happier ending for a film that originally wrapped up by having the main characters use the power of friendship to defeat evil.
Sadly, that didn't happen and now Ronan exists more as particles than he does a person. We can always just try and remember him like this, though:
Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on both Blu-ray and DVD on December 9th, but outtakes only scratch the surface when it comes to bonus content. As we've been writing about, there is also an extended "Making Of" mini-documentary, multiple deleted scenes, smaller featurettes, a gag reel, and a commentary track. We'll surely going to be getting even more previews of the bonus features in the coming weeks, so be sure to stay tuned!
