Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a another success for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Running at around two and a half hours on the big screen, James Gunn's sequel to the 2015 Guardians of the Galaxy was praised for its humor and its emotional depth.

Now, as everyone waits for the Digital HD, Blu-Ray and DVD release of the superhero space romp, Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker reveals that there's actually more than 80 minutes of unseen footage from the movie that fans can expect in the home release.

Rooker who had played the Ravager leader Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, had attended the San Diego Comic Con last weekend and in an interview with Comicbook, the Hollywood star let spill that James Gunn's stuffed a lot of extra footage in Guardians of the Galaxy 2's home release.

"We're going to get a lot of stuff, dude. There's over 80 minutes of unseen footage." Rooker told the publication.

Unfortunately it seems like the 80 minutes won't just be made out of deleted scenes. Gunn went on to Twitter to clarify Rooker's announcement, saying that the extra footage is mostly "80 minutes of extras."


While it might sound a bit disappointing for fans, the Guardians of the Galaxy star also detailed the deleted scenes of the film's home release.


"[It's] scenes that never made it into the movie, bloopers of course.Just scenes that were as good as the ones that were in the movie, but just for some reason, they made the choice to use the scene that they used. But still, you're going to see other moments."

Blooper scenes are also pretty fun, and adding it along with Gunn's music video for David Hasselhoff's original song Guardians Inferno in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 home release is definitely going to be a treat for fans.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gets its Digital HD release on August 8 and then a Blu-Ray and DVD release on August 22.
