Spider-Man: Far From Home Deleted Scene:
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now available in digital HD, and Sony has also released the footage they showed in the extended cut of the film. BluRay will come out in October. But before that, we have to talk about this amazing scene that was also deleted from the movie. Apart from Peter’s to-do list and the restaurant fight in his Iron Spider suit, this very emotional ending scene would make you wish that you got to see it in the theatrical cut. Take a look:
It seems that there was a real compulsion to end this movie on two hours and nine minutes run time. That’s why the fight sequence in the beginning, and this 1-minute long scene at the end was removed from the film. There would have been no harm in having these scenes in the movie because they actually make the whole story better. Right from the beginning, Peter was all about spending time with MJ on the plane, but he did not get to do it due to a clumsy mistake from Ned. But this particular deleted scene closes Peter and MJ’s arc by letting them spend time together on their flight back to New York.
Moreover, Peter meeting Aunt May and asking about the EDITH glasses was another heartfelt bit that we missed. Peter was finally stepping up to be the next big deal in the MCU. And that would have added some more emotion to the whole ending. These three aforementioned deleted scenes would have made the movie better than it was. John Watts claimed that they edited the opening montage of Peter running around in New York because they wanted to send him on the Europe trip as soon as possible. Well, 3-4 minutes of extra footage wouldn’t have mattered a lot. And the film would have become much crisper.
But then again, all of this doesn’t matter now because Spider-Man is officially out of the MCU. He isn’t the next Iron Man any more. He can’t even say Tony Stark. That’s what’s totally confusing for Spider-Man 3. Here’s what Sony Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra had to say about handling Spider-Man without the MCU:
“For the moment the door is closed. We had a great run on the Spider-Man movies. We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out… the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin Feige didn’t do all the work.
Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well. I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.”
There have still been rumors that Sony and Disney/Marvel could work things out. But for now, things will move on without the MCU. Sony does have a tough job at their hands if they feel like continuing right from where Spider-Man: Far From Home left things. But let’s see what they do.
Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Zendaya (Michelle Jones), Jake Gyllenhaal (Mysterio), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Angourie Rice (Betty, Jacob Batalon (Ned), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), and Numan Acar (Dmitri).
