Deleted scenes always make a fascinating companion to the final film.
Sometimes you wonder what could have been had they been kept in. Many of them would have made nice additions but were probably cut for time or because they didn't add anything to the story, as was the case for scenes deleted from Thor: Ragnarok, Mean Girls and Titanic.
Others, such as this one from The Devil Wears Prada that inflamed the masses, should be locked away and never spoken of again.
These two from Black Panther, which have become available online in the run-up to the movie being released on DVD (on May 15th, or digital download from May 8th), fall into the nice additions cut for time category.
The first came out earlier this week and shows tensions between Okoye (Danai Gurira) and W’kabi (Daniel Kaluuya) in the aftermath of what they believe was T’Challa’s death. The second scene takes place after Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa wakes up after sharing some final words with his father, the king. He confides in Forest Whitaker’s Zuri.

Both are emotional scenes and show off the range of the movie’s talented cast. Makes us want to go back and watch the movie all over again, frankly.
