Marvel loves lying in their trailers in order to misdirect their fans and stop them from figuring out the true intent of where the storyline is heading. Forging content for the trailer is a very clever marketing technique, in so far, it can create much-needed hype for the project and retain all of the stories without spoiling anything. We applaud Marvel for their guile but we detest the fact that other studios have started replicating their formula and started tricking us. It’s like we don’t even know who to trust anymore. Here are 14 scenes that existed only in the trailer ergo 14 times the studios tricked us so bad that we wanted to murder them.
The Adams Family (2019)
In the original The Adams Family trailer we can see the family sitting together to watch a movie in the theatre but this scene is nowhere to be seen in the final theatrical cut. It seems that it was only shot to be put in the trailer.
Wake Up, Ron Burgundy is one of the most infamous trailer scenes we have ever seen. Will Ferell has some degree of magic to him that cannot be put into words. Interestingly enough, the original scene was part of an alternate cut of the movie that only made it to the trailer and not the final theatrical cut.
Batman Returns (1992)
There is a scene in the Batman Returns trailer where Michelle Pfeiffer laughs so hard that her voice cracks. This scene never made it into the movie but it was a part of the original trailer for the film.
Black Christmas (2006)
Black Christmas is quite unique, even for this list. Almost the entire trailer was shot separately for the movie. A fan can watch the movie and then watch the trailer and realize that he is watching completely separate footage, which is quite extraordinary. Hence, making it one of the scenes that existed only in the trailers
The Force Awakens (2015)
The Force Awakens trailer has an instance where the light saber is being passed from one hand to the other. This scene was never present in the movie and was in fact, only added for symbolism in the trailer.
The Goonies (1985)
The octopus that attacks the kids is a trailer-only element and cannot be seen anywhere else in the movie which is quite interesting because fans were quite excited about the said octopus. Oh well, the fandom wins some and loses some.
Iron Man 2 (2010)
There is a snippet in the Iron Man 2 trailer where Gwyneth Paltrow’s character throws an Iron Man helmet at RDJ in the movie. But this scene from the trailer never actually made it into the final cut of the movie.
Return of The Jedi (1983)
Return of The Jedi trailer is the only place you can see the big three of the movie uniting in the sandstorm. The final cut of the movie does not feature this reunion scene.
Solo was a bumpy ride, especially because the movie switched directors halfway through the production schedule. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the moment when Solo yells “Woo Hoo” in the trailer was cut from the movie.
Morbius also featured a scene in the trailer that never made it to the movie’s final cut. This scene included a Tobey Maguire Spider-Man poster with the word Murderer plastered across it. Of course, fans were more than a little disappointed.
Guardians of The Galaxy (2014)
The original trailer of Guardians of the Galaxy had the line “They call themselves Guardians of the Galaxy” and a line-up scene from the main cast that never made it to the theatrical cut of the movie.
Rogue One (2016)
“It’s a rebellion, isn’t it? I rebel.” is a line that was relegated to the trailers for Rogue One. That and much of the original ending for the film can only be seen in the trailer now, including the above shot.
Back To The Future (1985)
There was a scene in the Back To The Future trailer which had someone asking Marty, “How far are you going” to which he replied, “About thirty years”. Neither this line nor that scene ever made it to the final cut of the movie.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Infinity War trailer is infamous for having scenes made specifically to misguide the audiences. There is a scene in this trailer in the battle of Wakanda where we can see the Hulk fighting alongside the Avengers, including Captain America. But this scene never appears in the movie.
