In the replies, Gunn answered a few of his fans' burning questions about Vol. 2's script. He went into all of the ways the script was formatted, whether or not he'll make the first Guardians script available (he won't), and how some jokes were changed within the final film.
"Some lines are different." Gunn explained on Twitter. "These are the lines that were actually written without including any of the improvisation by the actors on set. And some lines were cut from the film... Improvisation is only ever encouraged AFTER we have the scene shot as written. Most improv on set is by me or Chris."
He also addressed the film's plethora of post-credit scenes, and the evolutions they went through to hit the big screen.
The extended post credits scene with Adolescent Groot and Quill was cut because it is funnier to read than it was to watch." Gunn revealed. "It just happens that way sometimes, who knows why. I thought it was funny on set...All of the post-credits scenes were included all the way back in the treatment - I didn't discuss [them] with Marvel beforehand, but they liked them. EXCEPT the Stakar/Ravagers scene, which I wrote after we had completed primary filming... I awoke with a vision of the Stakar Ravagers scene in my head and couldn't stop thinking about it for days."
