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

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.

I didn't think it was possible, but Bobson has managed to create an improved version of my favourite superhero movie of all time.

With this pruning of the fascinating-but-incomprehensible Alt-Universe mode from the Blu-ray, which essentially showcased two completely different versions of the same film smashed together, the King of Extended Editions has expanded the already-rich emotional pallette of this rare deserved Oscar-winner to make Miles and Peter's payoffs with their respective family reunions all the more powerful.

Allow me to bestow the ultimate (har har) fan-edit compliment: "this will be my go-to version of the movie from now on."

I´ve have seen the updated version from this year (2021) and as others have already stated: ithis is just great. The deleted scenes/extended scenes may differ from the original movie, but i´ve grown very fond of them as they still work in this movie like a additional dimension. In a technical sense they´re seemlessly integrated. This replaces my bluray on my plex server:)

As far as the audio goes, i didn´t really notice any drops like macmillin stated (perhaps due to the updated version?).

A well deserved boost to an already wonderful film. I loved the theatrical cut, and enjoyed watching the extended Alt Uni Mode on the BluRay., but it felt too raw. Bobson's edit beautifully smooths out the rough ends and also masterfully trims a few tiny bits from the TC. I absolutely loved the changes.
Regarding the unfinished animation in the deleted/extended scenes - I personally treat those as another instance of the alternate dimensions merging and messing up reality.

Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this edit Some deleted scenes though visually incomplete add to the story and are easy to look past the rough quality.
