Deleted Scene from 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Would Have Redefined the Character

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 4, 2014 | Comments ()


The Amazing Spider-Man 2, like The Amazing Spider-Man, was a mediocre movie with outstanding performances, although I actually thought that the ending of the sequel gave it some heft missing from even the Raimi installments. But like most people, I thought there was more to the plotline involving Peter Parker’s Dad (Campbell Scott) that met the eye, and I even had the sneaking suspicion he may have actually been alive (I assumed they were just saving that reveal for the third movie).

Maybe they will, or maybe they won’t, but what is for sure is that at some point during the process they had planned for Richard Parker to make an appearance in the end, basically demolishing the whole “Orphan Peter Parker” mythos. In a deleted scene (which Sony itself has been deleting in YouTube videos all day), Richard Parker shows up at the end of the movie (SPOILER ALERT) after the death of Gwen to help console him after the funeral, and ends up delivering to his son one of the franchise’s most important lines, “With great power comes great responsibility.”

This GIF comes from a Spanish-language version.


This guy also caught a few stills from the video in discussing it.

They were smart to leave those scenes on the cutting room floor, as I doubt the headache presenting them would’ve been worth the little it added to the story.

    The part with the kid was fantastic. Doesn't really make up for the rest of the movie. But it was one of the better moments in a superhero movie I've seen.

    This would just make a horrible movie even more horriblererrrr.

    I do my best to avoid being overly "'Murica!", but this gentleman sounds REMARKABLY like a Francophonic Borat.

    i'm terrible with accents but I thought he was some kind of Irish.

  • I made this mistake of watching this movie Sunday. Turned it off after an hour. The writing, the acting (sans Garfield), the plot -- it was all terrible, even for a movie that was made solely for rights purposes.

    It's a bad sign when every single scene not including Gwen and Peter out of costume made me want to slam my face into wall. If they had cut everything with Electro, Rhino, and the bulk of the action, and left it as a cute indie romance where Goblin (already existing) just kills her, it'd have been a great, maybe brilliant superhero movie. But there's no way people would accept that.
