Info on ‘HOMECOMING’ Deleted Shots, Spidey Sense and IMAX Intro

July 6, 2017


Spider-Man: Homecoming will hit theaters tomorrow and details about deleted scenes that were seen in trailers, info on the Spidey sense, and a special new Spider-Man IMAX intro can be read down below!

Director Jon Watts spoke to ScreenCrush about two shots that were in the trailers but were cut for the final product, including an iconic shot of Spidey and Iron Man.

“The shot of [Spider-Man and Iron Man] together in Queens, that was never in the movie. I think what happened was in the very first trailer they wanted a shot of Spider-Man and Iron Man flying together. And they were going to use something from the Staten Island Ferry scene, but it just didn’t look that great– the background plate, because the Staten Island terminal is a very simple building. It almost looks like an unrendered 3D object. So I think I was like ‘let’s put them in Queen. Let’s use that as backdrop.’ Because we couldn’t just create a whole new shot, so ‘let’s just use one of these shots of the subway; put them in there.’ I feel a little weird that there’s a shot in the trailer that’s not in the movie at all, but it’s a cool shot. It’s funny, I think that we did that.”

The hotel atrium shot of The Vulture was also seen in several trailer, but it was actually shot at a real hotel atrium (The Marriott Marquis in Atlanta), but the Vulture pose was repurposed into a different background.

“The hotel atrium shot was originally created for Comic-Con, for like a sizzle reel before we had really shot anything; we had shot like two weeks of footage or something. That was never meant to be in the movie. But I did use that angle for Vulture’s reveal at the beginning of the movie; Vulture’s hovering, swooping towards the camera like that. I used that shot; it’s just no longer in an Atlanta hotel atrium.”

Meanwhile, Marvel’s President and producer Kevin Feige also answered a question from IGN about whether teh new tech in the Spider-Man suit intervenes with the Spidey sense.

“No, I think he has it. And I think he has it with or without that suit. I think how we explore it in a cinematic sense will change. I mean, that was sort of a big showy part of previous versions and we thought that we’d make it more of an internal, sort of second nature thing for him. But there are ways coming up that will slowly hint at that and also just make it part of his, you know, his natural abilities. But we don’t know that if it will be– I think we’ll explore it further down the line, but [it’s] definitely him not the suit.”

And what about the IMAX intro?

Following his debut in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland reprises his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Thrilled by the experience with the Avengers in Civil War, HOMECOMING finds Peter Parker returning home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine– distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man– but when The Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Also starring Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.

Directed by Jon Watts from a script by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, Watts & Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal produce. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Jeremy Latchman and Stan Lee executive produce.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7.

A sequel is already scheduled for July 5, 2019 and Tom Holland himself recently confirmed a third film is also in the works.
