A call to action for Spiderman Fans everywhere

 

Earlier this month, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" released worldwide to the delight of spider-man fans everywhere. What we were given by Marc Webb, his cast, team and Sony Pictures was an absolute spectacle of a film. The film featured electric chemistry between Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and in fact, this relationship has been viewed by many as one of the best ever depicted in a major motion picture pertaining to the superhero genre. Dazzling special effects, huge plot points, menacing villians and a truely amazing spider-man capped off this film, which delighted and thrilled spider-man fans everywhere. Spiderman fans loved this film, as can be seen from reaction videos all over the internet. One such video is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZO6HVrpMe4

The wonderful fact about great things is that they can be even better. Over the past year, some scenes have been rumoured to be cut from the film, some of these rumoured scenes to be cut are listed below. As spider-man fans, we believe these scenes could make the film even better, and possibly even alleviate some concerns by fans who may not have liked the movie as much as they wanted to. The scenes are as follows;

  • An attack on Oscorp by the Green Goblin
  • An alternate scene in which a tumultuous scene is portrayed differently
  • Extended Times Square and Clocktower scenes
  • Another Peter/Gwen scene.
  • A scene with Max and his Mother
  • A possible espionage plotline in regards to Oscorp.
  • Mary Jane scenes
  • Norman Osborn "Head Scene"

 

I think it is important that we can see the directors cut of the film, regardless of how long it is, so we can properly appreciate the huge amount of effort that went into the film. I think as fans, we could really appreciate this! The audience still enjoyed the film, as evidenced by the audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but I think the film has the potential to be even greater in a directors cut. Also good to clarify that we are not asking for a directors cut and implying that there was disharmony between Sony and Marc Webb, no, this is a collective call from all spidey fans for an even better cut of the film that will help increase Word of Mouth for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3". Think of it like Spiderman 2.1, a better version of an already fantastic and inspiring film.

The scenes I mentioned have been hinted at through interviews with Marc Webb. Other scenes mentioned were in a rough cut shown to a select few in March of this year. It is clear these scenes are not only filmed, but done over with CGI, as evidenced by the viewers of the rough cut of the film. Whilst it isn't perfect, there is no reason why this could not work in a directors cut. 

I must add that I feel that some of these scenes would tie up plot holes, and serve as transition scenes in order to make the tone feel more natural throughout the movie, an extra max scene would help the audience sympathise with him more, and an extra goblin scene would make his appearance seem a little less rushed.

Support the idea? Please share this to Spider-Man fans everywhere, and especially Marc Webb. He is quite active on twitter, so I strongly believe a large enough push from the Spider-Man fanbase could convince him to respond to this. The one thing that unites us all is a love and adoration for the Spider-Man character, he inspires us and leaves us in awe. I believe a directors cut of the film could really turn the film into a masterpiece, and just extend on something already so great. Regardless of whether you liked or disliked the film, I urge you, Spidey fan to Spidey fan, to sign this petition and become part of on united, central unit. Together as a fanbase, we can achieve anything

      Now, it's rather small in the big picture, but Marc Webb has just favourited a tweet from one of our followers regarding the petition!

      https://twitter.com/JakubHeyduk1/status/475239537002954752

      We can see that we are indeed starting to get the attention of some big names!

      Right now it's a favourite, soon it's a reply, then an official response, and hopefully, the eventuation of a directors cut!

      The ONLY way this is possible is if we continue to maintain the pressure, maintain the voice that has taken us so far already. I am going to amp up the media pressure over the next two weeks, I will be contacting media outlets such as IGN and SuperHeroHype regarding this petition, I will be contacting Sony Pictures, and I urge you all to do the same!

      Together, we can achieve anything!

      Kind Regards,

      We almost have the signatures, we have the resounding voice, now it is time to be heard.

      Almost 10,000 of us have stood up for something, although it may seem trivial, to us as spidey fans, it is something big, something special and something we can all agree on.

      This film lived up to it's name, an extended/directors/whatever-you-call-it cut of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will allow it to TRANCEND it's name.

      We need all of you on this, this is the most important and poignant phase of this campaign, this is the moment that will determine the success or failure of our cause. It is time to rise as one, as Spider-Man fans everywhere, and continue to cry out for what we want.

      This social media campaign begins NOW, and we need your help.

      Official tweets will come out on @DirectorCutASM2 on twitter. We need you to retweet these, tweet about and petition Marc Webb on this issue through social media, and the hashtag #TASMdirectorscut

    20. Harry Death Rumour

      Muhesh Spaleesh
      Petition Organizer

      "Several scenes involving Dane DeHaan were cut due to the disturbing and intense nature of the scenes. These include: Harry drinking and speeding while the girl he is on a date with begs him to slow down. An extended version of Harry's transformation into the Green Goblin, including his teeth growing and shattering, and his nails growing into claws. The Green Goblin showing himself to Felicia, who is in the building during the transformation, and sparing her life. In this scene, the Goblin kills Menken, and proceeds to destroy the Oscorp building. The Goblin cutting the web that Gwen is holding on to, which leads to her death. Alternate versions of Gwen's death also included the Goblin fatally stabbing her, and breaking her neck with his bare hands."

      According to the actors, the original Goblin vs. Spider-Man fight was longer and more violent, but had to be cut in order to keep the PG-13 rating. Things that were cut include a scene where the Goblin (Dane DeHaan) is conscious when Gwen dies and laughs at Peter as he cries over Gwen's body and a scene where Peter almost beats the Goblin to death after Gwen is killed.

    22. We are at 2000 signatures! Here is a rumour about some deleted scenes!

      We need to keep this momentum going. The difference between a resounding voice and a whimper is our ability to share these petitions and make ourselves heard. We must, as a group, continue to push this towards internet blogs and sites to gain more coverage. We need the support of some big guns to make this work, so continue sharing and hopefully CBM or SevenWebHeads can pick this up and give us the push to let sony know we want spidey in all his glory

      i really love spider man and i really wanted to love this movie but unfortunately the film suffered from a lot which made it not work for me as well as it did for others and according to Andrew Garfields comments not to long ago, he stated that studio cuts is what might have hurt this film. so i would really like to see how Mark Webb originally intended it to be.
