You Can Finally Watch That Deleted 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Mall Scene
The response to X-Men: Apocalypse was mixed, at best, but one scene about the movie quickly became legendary: The deleted mall scene. The scene was said to be very '80s (basically the only thing in the movie that would have been), feature Jubilee (see previous parentheses), and just overall be a bunch of fun (there's a Dazzler cameo!). But alas, the scene didn't make the final cut of the movie... probably so "Raven" could spend more time looking like Jennifer Lawrence. However, our long national nightmare is over, as the scene has now hit the internet!

The clip is full of blasts from the past like Slush Puppies, a Spaceport arcade, and Boy George, who actually kind of does look like Jean Grey. It's a lot of fun, and that's exactly why I think the scene didn't make it into the movie. The tone is weird compared to the rest of the film, especially the stuff with Nightcrawler, and it would have stuck out like a sore thumb compared to all the somber grandstanding in the rest of the film. Oh well, at least the final movie still included the Quicksilver scene!
