Production on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was a little chaotic, with the pandemic and a nasty injury sustained by star Letitia Wright causing a number of delays. The sequel eventually finished shooting, though, and arrived in theaters last November to positive reviews and a big opening weekend. 

When cameras were rolling, Martin Freeman was spotted on set as Everett Ross looking vastly different to the version of the character we followed in the sequel's worst subplot. 

Speculation about what happened has run rampant since the sequel was released, but thanks to io9, we now know this was simply a sequence that ended up being left on the cutting room floor!

Titled "Upstairs Toilet," this scene was originally going to play out after Namor took Shuri to Talokan City but before Nakia attempts to rescue T'Challa's sister. Ross infiltrates the NSA in an effort to acquire Riri Williams' confiscated laptop, and this was likely meant to serve as yet another reason he's eventually arrested by his ex-wife Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

It's a fun scene, but one we'd argue would have slowed the movie down a little too much. While Freeman was great in the movie, he didn't have the best material to work with, and this could have ended up being an irritating distraction. 

Unfortunately, there's no option to embed this deleted scene, so you can either follow the link in the Tweet below or click here to check it out. 

"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever ranks among Marvel Studios' best movies, and is an emotional, uplifting, tour de force of a blockbuster," we said in our review last year. "Letitia Wright delivers a powerhouse performance, while Angela Bassett’s majestic work will leave you reeling."

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will debut on Disney+ on February 1 ahead of its DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD release on February 7.

I haven't seen the movie, but wanted to comment. I skimmed this, and read something about a toilet.

I'm in.

@Pathogen - about the toilet you’re in? 😳

The maaan!

@Pathogen - Toilets are great. Your mention of it reminds me of the famous statement, "If it wasn't for toilets, there wouldn't be any."
Pathogen - 1/31/2023, 3:15 PM
@LSHF - hahah what the heck, this is great.

OT: Kaiju fans rejoice Gamera is back

dracula - 1/30/2023, 11:56 AM
@Godzilla2000Zer - man we need Godzilla vs Gamera
EZBeast - 1/30/2023, 12:01 PM
@Godzilla2000Zer - and Gyaos is returning! the gyaos are one of the scariest giant kaiju in any film imo.
EZBeast - 1/30/2023, 12:03 PM
@Godzilla2000Zer - And it says hes going to fight 5 kaiju and i want some original monsters however I wouldn't mind seeing an updated Barugon and Legion
TheyDont - 1/30/2023, 2:30 PM
@Godzilla2000Zer - Why is Gamera?
dracula - 1/30/2023, 2:49 PM
@TheyDont - if you mean what

He is japans second biggest monster behind Godzilla

A flying turtle that breaths fire. Has been a villain, a friend to all children and simple protector
Godzilla2000Zer - 1/30/2023, 3:36 PM
@EZBeast - Definitely agreed on Barugon and definitely not surprised Gyaos is back as well.
Godzilla2000Zer - 1/30/2023, 3:37 PM
@dracula - Could happen in a few years Toho is much less restrictive than before. Wouldn't bet money on it though.
Godzilla2000Zer - 1/30/2023, 3:39 PM
@TheyDont - Funny thing is there's a kaiju in the Ultra Series named Gomora
TheyDont - 1/30/2023, 4:35 PM
@dracula - Thanks, but it was a reference to "Why is Gamora?"
StSteven - 1/30/2023, 5:51 PM
@TheyDont - Damn it damn it damn it! You beat me to it. Stupid job getting in the way of me posting stuff 'n junk!

Coming to Disney+ soon: Everett Ross & the vibranium toilet affair.

TheLobster - 1/30/2023, 11:56 AM
Yeah, cutting this subplot was the right move lol
dracula - 1/30/2023, 11:59 AM
Really the underuse of Riri and Everrett really brings down the movie

Riri was more of a plot device than any other new generation hero

Everrett felt like he was just padding out screen time
JuanRGuijarro - 1/30/2023, 1:22 PM
@dracula - Same as America Chavez...
dracula - 1/30/2023, 1:49 PM
@JuanRGuijarro - eh at least Chavez had reason to be there and had development

Riri was a plot device that was really no longer needed after the bridge scene and just stood around in the background after that

It sucks when an actor/actress has scenes removed but hey at least they still got paid for their work.
JuanRGuijarro - 1/30/2023, 1:21 PM
WELL, that's the reason why marvel movies are a joke

Can’t wait to rewatch this on Wednesday
