Brief Synopsis:
Superhero Movie is almost forgotten parody of the comic book hero genre, and a very short one at that, running at barely 75 minutes.
The Full Hourglass integrates 30 new, extended and alternate scenes, jokes gags and more for a brand new way to see the Dragonfly's origin!
Sixteen minutes have been added to the film, to create a more complete spoof experience!
Intention:
I had realised how much deleted stuff they had shoved into the end credits of the film, the DVD bonus features and the Blockbuster Exclusive DVD, and so I wanted to cram all or most of it back in.
Other Sources:
- German Blu-Ray: The theatrical and official extended cut were taken from this disc, with some deleted stuff being taken from the TC as they play over the credits, as well as the majority of deleted scenes coming from the bonus features
- Blockbuster Exclusive DVD: A few additonal scenes were taken from this disc as they don't appear on any other release
- Spider-Man (2002) Original Motion Picture Score: Some tracks were used to rescore scenes that didn't have any, as Danny Elfman's score is pretty close to what's used in the final film

Editing Details:
Since I was using the Blu-Ray as a main source, the SD deleted scenes don't look as good next to HD footage. Some scenes play over the credits in the theatrical cut, and are in HD, so they could be used. Everything was upscaled to HD with Topaz AI, so that it can stand up with the Blu-Ray,
Some portions where the scenes fade in and out needed to be repaired using AviSynth as the editing didn't quite work out, hopefully it's invisible.
I've also used some tracks from the Spider-Man (2002) OST to fill some gaps where there were none in deleted scenes, most notably the hero montage.

Thoroughly enjoyed this edit with the added scenes spliced in quite professionally. The audio edits were seamless but with two significant errors that are probably easy fixes. 56 minutes into the movie when the love interests kiss in the rain, the audio fades out completely for about 5-10 seconds and then fades back in. At one point when the Hourglass fights the Dragonfly, all the characters are suddenly speaking German for no apparent reason (wrong audio track from the European source?). I temporarily downgraded my rating given for audio editing and enjoyment pending the audio fixes. This edit is what the studio should have released to begin with! Thank you Bobson! Looking forward to any update so I can add this to my collection as my go-to version.

A great edit that restores deleted scenes and creates an extended version of a movie that was criminaly edit in both theatrical and home versions. It´s a better movie than it looks, and this fanedit shows that! Another great work by Bobson Dugnutt!

Another great work by Bobson Dugnutt. this time rescuing a little gem from an oft-forgotten period. This is probably one of the last "spoof" movies ever made and it definitely deserved better. The jokes are pretty solid most of the time and the deleted scenes really work most of the time. I really recommend it for anyone wanting to have some laughs at the expense of the superhero movies of the early 2000's
The technical aspects are impeccable as usual. Once again Mr Dugnutt does not disappoint.
