Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi left star-studded scenes with Peter Dinklage, Jeff Goldblum, and Lena Headey on the cutting room floor — and he never intends for anyone to see them.

“People say, ‘I can’t wait for the deleted scenes with those actors.’ I don’t want people to see the deleted scenes because they’re deleted for a reason: They aren’t good enough,” Waititi told Insider with a laugh. “The scenes were not in the movie and that’s it.”

So, no, unless there’s some kind of a leak, we’ll probably never see the scenes featuring Goldblum as the Grandmaster, whom he previously played in Thor: Ragnarok, or Dinklage as Eitri, King of Dwarves, whom Dinklage played in Avengers: Infinity War. And we’ll also probably never see Game of Thrones star Headey in what was supposed to be her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Here’s why Waititi made the hard decisions.

“I wrote the thing, so when you cut anything, it’s a little bit of a challenge to yourself, because you’re like, ‘Am I not that good? Should I have seen this coming?’ But every film I’ve done I’ve probably cut the same amount out,” he said. “When you go into the edit ,you just never know. A scene on its own could be the most funniest thing or intriguing thing, but sometimes those things if you keep them in will just make the movie screech to a halt. So you have to do what’s best for the film.”

The director isn’t worried about Headey, Goldblum or Dinklage having hard feelings about it, either.

“If you ask any of those actors who were cut out — Jeff Goldblum, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage — they all understand how it works. They have been in the game long enough,” Waititi said. “But that’s just the way I look at things.”

Thor: Love and Thunder is now playing in theaters.
