We’re currently at about the halfway point between James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and his sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is a perfect time for a deleted scene from the original film to emerge. This particular clip comes from Marvel’s Phase Two Blu-ray box set and features Dave Bautista’s Drax the Destroyer enjoying quite a few drinks with his computer-generated friends Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
Like any barroom chat between chums, the conversation eventually turned to tattoos after a few too many drinks. It’s a nice exploration of Drax’s body art, which acts as a story map for his life up to this point. Fans of the comic book version of the character will likely pick up a few more details from this scene than those who only know him from the Marvel movie, but I’m not sure if this has anything to do with the big Easter egg that Gunn claims no one has spotted yet. Take a look to find out for yourself!

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios.
