Brief Synopsis:
The Ultimate Comics Cut takes the best of the almost finished deleted scenes from the official “Alternate Universe Mode”. Five of the over thirty new minutes of deleted, alternate and unused scenes have been reintegrated into the film for an expanded new experience.
Intention:
I tried to use the best of the deleted scenes from the Alt-Uni Mode that were finished or close to finished to flesh out the theatrical cut more. This is more of a longer theatrical cut, rather than the radically different Alt.Uni Mode.
Special Thanks:
Zarius for some good feedback in the ITW Thread
Release Information:
Digital
Special Features
- Spider Bits and Bites: Some unused moments, comparing deleted lines that were repurposed, and some trailer stuff.
Editing Details:
The Alt Uni Mode on the Blu-Ray had a bit of choppy editing at times, as the audio transitions weren't 100% , so all of that has been trimmed up. There was also a lot of weird visual transitions that had a frame within a frame thing that has also been fixed.

There was also a moment that I didn't like in the "Leap of Faith" after Peter B jumps off the billboard when he yells "YES! THAT WAS EMOTIONAL" as if we didn't know that the scene was already emotional. So I cut out that moment and masked together two other shots to fix the cut.
Cuts and Additions:
- Added a few new lines when Peter B is tied to the boxing bag
- Extended scene in the restaurant with some food metaphors used for the multiverse plan
- New scene with Peter going after Miles when he leaves the Spider-Cave, they talk about what it means to be a superhero
- Extended fight scene inside and out of Aunt May's house, lots of cool bits and pieces
- Replaced "How do I know I'm ready?" exchange in Miles' room (as it is now in the new scene with Peter/Miles earlier) with "Now you don't have to be Spider-Man"
- New scene with the Spider-Gang being caught by Tombstone while trying to infiltrate Kingpin's office
- Extended scene of the gang breaking into the elevator as they search the office before finding the elevator
- New scene with Doc Ock in the collider fight, showing her final fate in the film

I have not seen the Alt Universe Cut of ITSV, so I had some uninformed expectations going into this, thinking the scenes chosen were complete but cut. The first extended scene snapped me from that disillusionment, but did not break enjoyment of an already excellent film! Not all the added scenes provide a richer narrative, but the handful which do--billboard chat, Liv's motivations--are superb. It's criminal the extended fight scene at Aunt May's was left on the cutting room floor! The deleted and extended scenes were woven flawlessly into the movie, and the audio balancing was flawless.

I recommend this version to anyone who is a fan of the theatrical version! Though maybe not to a first time viewer who may be thrown off by the storyboard and unfinished CGI scenes.

(Watched on iPad (7th Gen) with Apple Earphones)

Audio/Video Quality (8/10) - Video Quality was great, looked like it came exactly from the Blu-ray. The same with the deleted scenes. I have issues with the audio through. In some movie scenes (especially when Peter B. Parker talks with Mary Jane), I noticed an audio echo in my speakers. I also noticed that the audio particularly focused on the right speaker throughout the whole movie.

Visual Editing (10/10) -The deleted scenes were edited flawlessly and fit perfectly in the movie.

Audio Editing (10/10) - The audio was seamless, and I didn't hear any rough/abrupt cuts between deleted scenes.

Narrative (9/10) - As I said before, the deleted scenes fit perfectly within the movie, and do not majorly damage the movie pace at all. The deleted scenes should honestly be officially in the movie, as they contain essential character development. Especially that deleted scene when B. Parker comforts Miles after the spidermen shame him at Aunt May's house, I was wondering why B. Parker didn't immediately go talk to Miles after he left in the movie as he's basically Miles's mentor. So yeah, that deleted scene really fixed that part of the movie I disliked.

This might be a minor nitpick, but I kinda wish the "How do I know I'm ready?" exchange in Miles' room wasn't fully replaced and the "Now, you don't have to be Spider-Man." was added after B. Parker's leap of faith speech. I believe one major theme of this movie was "don't overthink, just do it", so keeping that leap of faith speech would have greatly provided importance to that theme. There are other scenes however that also show the theme, so I get why it was replaced as we have other scenes for it.

Enjoyment (9/10) - Other than the audio echo issues and being open-minded with the unfinished animation, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie edit and wished this was the actual movie (aside from the finished animation, fixed audio, and my edit feedback of course).
-------------------------------------------------------------
To summarize my review, what a great edit to add to a film masterpiece and it makes it even better. It has its problems of course with the audio issues, but makes up with the skilled editing and its handpicked deleted scenes that perfectly fit in the film. In my opinion, it should have been in the original movie.

I recommend this fan edit to people who want more story and character development in this masterpiece, along with being open-minded with the unfinished animation inside the deleted scenes.

Thank you for making this fan edit!

(FYI if you want to mostly fix the audio focused on the right speaker. Turn on Mono Audio. For mobile, you can search "mono audio" in your device settings and there should be a toggle to turn on. For PC, you can search for it also on your computer search bar I believe.)

Had to rewatch the excellent Into the Spider-verse before the new film came out.

The film is wonderful, relatable, and insane. It really leans into its comic book roots and doesn’t take itself too seriously, in both art direction, story, and characters. Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen are both stars in the making. Once the other three multiverse Spider-people (Noir, Spider-Ham, Peni Parker SP//dr) make their appearance, the animators get to play even more as each character has a distinct art style. While this is Mile’s film, acting as an origin film and being the lead protagonist throughout.

But I think emotionally, I think it’s original creation (to my knowledge) for this film, Peter B. Parker which ties everything together. A Peter Parker from another dimension, a down on his luck, depressed, adult Peter, whose life just didn’t turn out to be fine, who’s buckled under the weight of the pressure of being Spider-man and it’s destroyed his personal life. Peter B.’s arc is the one that’s the most heartfelt for me, as through the film he learns from Miles about acting on the leap of faith just as much as Miles learns from his Spider-compadres about how to use the skills and be a Spider-man.

There’s all sorts of zany superheroic action throughout, but it’s the human moments that make this picture, like Peter B. constantly trying to lose Miles because he doesn’t want him to end up like him, or Miles trying to use a pick-up line on Gwen, or best yet, the interaction between father and son as Miles and his father embrace grateful for the relationship they both have.

So what’s up with the fanedit version.

A fanedit that reincorporates deleted scenes into the completed film. In other fanedits, particularly ones that are live action and don’t rely heavily on Special Effects, it’s a lot less intrusive. In animated films, the animation tends to be unfinished causing a brain adjustment. Bobson Dugnutt is an expert faneditor and if it weren’t for the fact that this was an animated film that made its extended scenes obvious, I probably wouldn’t have even been able to notice, that’s how good Bobson’s technical prowess is.

Nonetheless, it’s mostly the same film, just a little longer. Even unfinished some of these extended scenes are fun, like the extended fight at Aunt May’s house, or Peter B. additional lines at the restaurant explaining the multiverse using fries. Where it deviates is the very significant discussion between Peter B. and Miles on the billboard, there’s extra lines here, and because some of the scene is now unfinished it takes away the power of that scene and those lines entirely, for me. It’s far too distracting to get over. So I won’t rewatch it this way again, but I enjoyed the experiment.

I loved this so much. Even with how the deleted scenes were (understandably) unfinished, it felt fluid and worked all the way through the credits. It felt like a new experience. Love your edits, will be watching more and reviewing a couple more here soon. Cheers! Much love, and keep up the good work. - Juggy

When I first got the Blu-Ray for ITSV I noticed an "Alternate Universe Mode" with some deleted scenes. However, since it had commentary from the directors, I wasn't really interested in it since I wanted to watch it as just the extended cut. I got that with Bobson's fanedit, but I think I probably should have put more research into the alternate mode.

You see the deleted scenes aren't finished. Not meant as a slam against the editor, he did the best he could and it's probably more me not fully knowing what the deleted scenes were. Which is a shame because a lot of the scenes (especially the extended fight at May's house) were great but them not being finished kinda took me out a bit.

Overall it was enjoyable but not better than the theatrical sadly. (Though I think some editing with the scene of Peter and Miles on the billboard would make it theatrical-quality)

Note I would like to make: Apparently there was an updated version of this edit? Not sure which one I watched then.
