Brief Synopsis:
The same Spider-Man: Homecoming you love with a pinch of added responsibility.
Intention:
I like Spider-Man: Homecoming fine, however compared to all the other Spider-Man movies I feel like it was too generic and didn't resonate with me as much as it should. Peter, to me, lost his sense of responsibility and relatability. He turned from an average, nerdy, shy and awkward outcast to a privileged kid hell bent on proving himself to become an Avenger, looking down on his peers. That's all fine and dandy if he rediscovers his sense of responsibility and humility, and the film tries to do that, but an important part of rediscovering his responsibility and feeling of guilt after losing Uncle Ben was still missing. I wanted to remedy that, so I tweaked, trimmed, cut, added, modified until I was satisfied. I believe what I came up with is a movie that's a little faithful and overall better than what we got.
Additional Notes:
I took a lot of inspiration from Bobson Dugnutt's Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man while adding my own spin (ha) to the movie.

Editing Details:

Cuts and Additions:
+Add “2012” date over Stark Tower
*Replaced “8 Years Later” with “Present Day”
*Replace “Hey everyone” with Tony saying “Nice job kid” from Civil War
-Cut Tony’s “Skimpy Aunt May” joke
+Added deleted scene where Liz tries to convince Peter not to leave the group. I think it hits home harder how Peter’s letting his friends down and lends well to the responsibility theme
-Cut “How’s your Aunt” dialogue at Delmar’s
-Cut Ned’s infatuated “A thing to do after...”
-Cut “I larb you”
-Cut waiter hitting on Aunt May
-Cut Ned asking Peter several questions about his powers
*Changed Peter's ringtone to a familiar funky tune :D
*Change Ferris Bueller audio to actual audio from the movie
*Change music of Iron Man saving Peter to Hulkbuster musical cue from Age of Ultron
-Cut “Does this work?” And “I thought this was the Anti-Gravity gun” to make Toomes even more intimidating and someone who'll do anything to protect his family
-Cut Ned’s “Awesome” after Peter says he was almost vaporized
-Cut Ned’s “I just want to thank you for...” etc.
-Cut both instances of “instant kill” This does kinda ruin its payoff in Endgame, but I never liked how Tony kinda gave a killing machine to a kid. Also that can easily be cut from a potential Endgame edit.
-Cut Karen saying “You’ll have to create momentum.” Peter can (and should) figure this out on his own.
-Cut Toomes saying “8” from “8 years and not a word from the feds” and added a Danny Elfman cue like Bobson Dugnutt did in his edit.
-Cut Karen describing Aaron Davis’ age as 33. Since the movie has to take place in September 2016, Aaron Davis has to be 32.
-Cut Karen saying Peter was “98% successful”
*Rescored Iron Man saving the ferry with the Iron Man 3 Theme
+Created new Uncle Ben flashback using the Civil War bedroom scene footage and Amazing Spider-Man 1 footage I replaced in my Extended Edition (Martin Sheen Uncle Ben. Not so unbelievable after the multiverse) with echoed dialogue from previous scenes, Spider-Man 1, and Civil War to hit home how the last time he didn't interfere with someone's business, he lost the person he loves most. The music I used is "Uncle Ben" from the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. I always thought the "why" to Peter's responsibility (so basically his "need" to rediscover in contrast to his "want") was missing, or at least left very vague to the audience (except if you've seen past Spidey movies or at least Civil War, which you shouldn't be required to do--a film, especially the first in a new series, must stand on its own two feet).
-Cut gum under the bus joke
-Cut “I‘m looking at porn” gag. People seem to love this joke. I don’t.
+Added Danny Elfman's "Responsibility Theme" (using "Final Confrontation" from SM1) over Peter being stuck under the rubble and seeing his mask and his reflection in the water.
-Cut repeat of “If you’re nothing without this suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” We get it.
+Elfman's "Responsibility Theme" (using "Train/Appreciation" from SM2) plays one final time when Happy finds Toomes tied in a web before the music transitions to Giacchino's Spider-Man theme.
*Moved Toomes in prison to after Liz says goodbye to Peter
-Cut Audi dashboard
-Cut the whole “that was a test right?” exchange
*Moved Tony/Pepper proposal scene to mid-credits
*Replace credits song with the Ramones Spider-Man theme
-Cut Gwyneth Paltrow from the animated credits
*Replaced Captain America post credits scene with deleted Aaron Davis deleted scene. As much as I love the Cap scene it only works in the context of waiting in the theater for something meaningful, and that is lost when you can just skip to it with modern video players. I also prefer the Miles Morales reference much more.

I came into the fan-editing world because of Star Wars. I discovered an alternative world of people editing MCU movies, after tirelessly surfing the web of an edit of The Last Jedi that is. Thanks to macmillan's Avengers: Assembled edit, I was intrigued to find more stellar edits. Bobbson Dugnutt's edit of Homecoming signifies merely just the beginning of my probably unhealthy addiction of fan edits. Now, on to the edit of the hour, Spider-Man: Homecoming was a great and surprisingly plot solid film even after subsequent viewings it remained a relatively brilliant movie in my eyes. It is an excellent movie that depicts a perfectly cast young Peter Parker working effectively with the Tony Stark "father figure" dynamic. However, for years, I couldn't figure out the niggling missing element that kept knocking on the doors in my head. That was Uncle Ben. I'm keen on skipping the origin story after sitting through it twice with the Tobey and Andrew iterations. However, there could've been at least a line or a flashback of Uncle Ben (the core/heart of Spider-Man IMO).

Before I get to that pivotal moment, I genuinely loved the small edits such as the "2012" and "present day" subtitles. This is because I knew the beginning took place sometime after The Avengers movie in 2012, but then it said 8 years later I was like, "So what is the exact chronology of the MCUniverse anyway?" Thank you for that. I equally enjoyed the inclusion of the Liz encouraging Pete deleted scene. The scene included not only extra bits of Pete's social life, but it adds more to them being friends and caring for each other (even if they never get together in the end). I also felt it was an excellent decision by both you and Bobbson to cut the jokes of May being hot for the kiddies (well done). The score changes for the "Iron Man to the rescue" scenes as well as the Danny Elfman motifs in others were a lot better IMO. They undoubtedly added so much more tension and emotion within them.


Which ushers me to the second half of the movie, the Uncle Ben inclusion during his decision to swoop in to action instantly recognizing what he's been fighting for. It made me become aware of the small yet crucial addition that was missing. The necessary decision to cut humor in some action scenes was brilliant too. The cut of Tony's "If you're nothing without the suit..." dialogue before Pete clears the rubble is a classic example of properly conveying emotion through "show don't tell". I agree the message is perfectly SHOWN with the shot of Pete looking at his water drenched mask (made even better with the familiar Danny Elfman motif). The addition of the proposal scene being moved to be an after credits scene, need I say more? In conclusion, all cuts were seamless and this edit is by far my new go-to when watching Spider-Man: Homecoming in my MCU marathons. I sincerely loved every minute of it, Spider-Man: Homecoming - Responsibility Edition without a doubt should have been the final cut. I am so glad I watched this. It has made the original movie into an even better movie more in tune with the spirit of Spider-Man. Well done, Masirimso17.

This was over all a fantastic Spider-Man edit, and inserted some semblance of the one thing it was missing (Uncle Ben) but that was also the source of the only problem I had with the edit: the segue back from the flashback was like getting hit with a hammer. That audio was not a smooth transition, and it really destroyed the moment. I also really hated that Uncle Ben death, but I get it. It was really the only one that made any sense with the younger May. Everything else about this edit I felt was fantastic and even an improvement over Bobson's excellent edit in that it trims a little of the over the top stuff. Over all, still going to become my go to edit for this movie. Strongly recommended.

Thanks, the glitched audio transition from the Ben flashback to the dance has been fixed in v1.1. I used the alternate death in my Amazing edit so it made sense to repurpose the deleted version in this one to be more unique (instead of reusing the Spider-Man 1/Spider-Man 3 version with Thomas Haden Church as the killer which would be more jarring in my opinion). I think it fits the "doing good things because you can" theme as well. Plus as you said the ages matched up better, and there weren't that many shots from behind or above of Tobey Maguire really mourning over Ben's body as much as Andrew Garfield.
