  • Deleted Scene: The original ending revealed Maria was actually one of the beastfolk, more specifically a feline, as when she and Andrew are being rescued at sea she was shown to have fangs and panther-like eyes. Stills of this ending still exist and the scenes hinting at her nature still persist in the final cut, but for some reason the ending shot of her reveal was cut. The comic book adaptation by Marvel and the novelization both preserved this twist.
