Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Ultimate Comics CutFeatured
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.
- 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 really enjoyed this edit Some deleted scenes though visually incomplete add to the story and are easy to look past the rough quality.
Enjoyed this movie. Wish Sony had finished the animation on those extra scenes. But I definitely enjoyed it!
A strong film made even stronger by the reincorporation of a few deleted scenes that help enrich the narrative and characters. The unfinished animation for these scenes takes a while to get used to, but it's easily to overlook when the dialogue, storytelling, and voice acting are all so good and they're reintegrated into the plot mostly very well. Another great Bobson Dugnutt edit.
For some reason, I was not a huge fan of Into the Spider-Verse the first time I watched it. I'd been meaning to revisit it for a while, but kinda forgot about it - the release of this edit certainly jogged my memory.
Edit aside - this film is amazing! I remember feeling it was dull and uninteresting for the majority of the runtime, before picking up in an amazing third act - while I still think the third act is the clear highlight, the first two are nothing to complain about! I was wrong.
As for the edit, it was pretty solid. Most of the integrations - regardless of state/quality - were done pretty well. However, there were a few that I don't think enhanced anything and just distracted me for a moment or two when I got adjusted to the rough sketches and raw animation, and in my opinion detracted from the narrative (not a fan of the on-the-nose "Now you don't have to be Spider-Man" line). Additionally, at some points in the film (particularly those with low-pitch audio), the gain appeared to cap out, leading to a kinda muffled sound - I noticed it specifically on a lot of lines said by Miles' father.
Regardless, I'd recommend checking out this edit. These issues were temporary and unobtrusive overall, and this was still a fun way to revisit the film.
