It’s amazing how one slight elimination of a scene or two can change the whole plot of the movie. However, adding the moments of clarity and finding the essentials for a confusing plot twist to make sense is why editing is tricky. Maybe that is why we get to see numerous amount of insane deleted scenes. Well, editing has its perks too and collecting only 17 insane deleted scenes out of so many isn’t an easy work either. Here, we made a list of 17 insane deleted scenes that would drastically change your favorite movies.
1. The scene where Levinson devises the crippling virus while visiting an old spaceship in a Roswell Area 51 crash from ‘Independence Day’
2. The scene where Joker is blowing down the hospital from ‘The Dark Knight’
The extended scene, where the Joker exploded the hospital and right after that quietly got onto a bus, is an iconic scene that imitated his psychopathic criminal mastermind. Later, it got deleted.
3. When Avengers took the knee after Tony died from ‘Avengers: Endgame’
4. The super creepy scene of Scar from ‘The Lion King’
The movie contained a very creepy scene of Scar where he was trying to corner Nala to get her alone. It got deleted anyway.
5. The scene where Regina and Cady apologized to each other from ‘Mean Girls’
Although the scene got deleted, it was overwhelming to see both of the girls having a heart-to-heart talk and genuinely make apologies to each other.
6. The scene where Miranda thanked Andy From ‘The Devil Wears Prada’
This scene appears to be vulnerable based upon the character sketch of Miranda. It was unexpected of her to step into a situation like this. However, they deleted it.
7. The alternate ending scene from ‘I Am Legend’
In this scene, Will Smith stayed alive as he got to know Darkseekers had feelings. However, it was the real ending scene that is there in the novel.
8. The scene that revealed Donnie’s dead body from ‘Donnie Darko’
9. The only time Aunt Petunia and Dudley said goodbyes to Harry from ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’
Apart from the scene, their character sketches weren’t complete. This was the only closure they would have got.
10. The alternate ending for ‘Titanic’ was super cheesy and cringeworthy.
11. The scene where Truman got real skeptical from ‘The Truman Show’
12. An extended scene from ‘Aliens’
When Ripley came across the information of her daughter’s death while she was stuck in her hyper-sleep, the scene that showed her emotions was deleted.
13. The scene where W’Kabi and Okoye argued from ‘Black Panther’
It explained a lot more of why W’Kabi turned his back on T’Challa and Okoye and how difficult it was to see the future altogether.
14. The scene of an argument between Annie and her nemesis from the ‘Bridesmaids’
Certainly, the scene was ideal and maybe that’s why they kept a few seconds in the final movie but the whole scene would’ve been funnier.
15. The scene where Leon show Mathilda how to shoot from ‘Leon’
16. The scene of an argument between Venom and Eddie from ‘Venom’
This scene revealed how the whole movie should unfold but got deleted anyway.
17. The scene that showed the life of Luke on Tatooine from ‘Star Wars’
The scene displayed what Luke’s life was like on Tatooine.
