Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Ultimate Comics Cut
Faneditor Name:
Original Movie/Show Title:
Franchise:
Fanedit Type:
Original Release Date:
2018
Original Running Time:
116 minutes
Fanedit Release Date:
Fanedit Running Time:
121 minutes
Time Added:
5 minutes
Available in HD:
Synopsis:
The Ultimate Comics Cut takes the best of the almost finished deleted scenes from the official “Alternate Universe Mode”. Five of the over thirty new minutes of deleted, alternate and unused scenes have been reintegrated into the film for an expanded new experience.
Intention:
I tried to use the best of the deleted scenes from the Alt-Uni Mode that were finished or close to finished to flesh out the theatrical cut more. This is more of a longer theatrical cut, rather than the radically different Alt.Uni Mode.
Special Thanks:
Zarius for some good feedback in the ITW Thread
Release Information:
Digital
Special Features:
- Spider Bits and Bites: Some unused moments, comparing deleted lines that were repurposed, and some trailer stuff.
Editing Details:
The Alt Uni Mode on the Blu-Ray had a bit of choppy editing at times, as the audio transitions weren't 100% , so all of that has been trimmed up. There was also a lot of weird visual transitions that had a frame within a frame thing that has also been fixed.

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.
Cuts and Additions:
- Added a few new lines when Peter B is tied to the boxing bag
- 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 didn't think it was possible, but Bobson has managed to create an improved version of my favourite superhero movie of all time.

With this pruning of the fascinating-but-incomprehensible Alt-Universe mode from the Blu-ray, which essentially showcased two completely different versions of the same film smashed together, the King of Extended Editions has expanded the already-rich emotional pallette of this rare deserved Oscar-winner to make Miles and Peter's payoffs with their respective family reunions all the more powerful.

Allow me to bestow the ultimate (har har) fan-edit compliment: "this will be my go-to version of the movie from now on."

A well deserved boost to an already wonderful film. I loved the theatrical cut, and enjoyed watching the extended Alt Uni Mode on the BluRay., but it felt too raw. Bobson's edit beautifully smooths out the rough ends and also masterfully trims a few tiny bits from the TC. I absolutely loved the changes.
Regarding the unfinished animation in the deleted/extended scenes - I personally treat those as another instance of the alternate dimensions merging and messing up reality.

Highly recommended.

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.

WOW!!! This is an almost perfect edit of this film! Yes there are some unfinished scenes added in, but most of them are amazing and IMHO should have been in the final film. They don't add that much time, but the fight in Aunt May's house was SO much better!!! There was a echo in the scene at the Spider-man dedication dinner near the end, where SM is stalking to MJ and there is an echo in his voice that was strange. There was a deleted scene that I think should not have been added in, because it really didn't work well in the film and editors of the theatrical release were smart to leave out. It is the extra few seconds added to scene where fat Peter is taking the goober from Miles and tells him he doesn't have to be Spider-Man anymore. I don't like that one in the film personally. I think Peter wouldn't have said that, because he only wanted to protect Miles because he wasn't fully ready yet, and it was that moment where he is left behind, that is the proverbial push off the ledge Miles needed to become Spider-Man.
This won't replace the original for me, but I'm very glad to have watched it and to have viewed the additional fight sequences in May's home. That was just cool and I wish they had finished it and put it in the movie.

I have not seen the Alt Universe Cut of ITSV, so I had some uninformed expectations going into this, thinking the scenes chosen were complete but cut. The first extended scene snapped me from that disillusionment, but did not break enjoyment of an already excellent film! Not all the added scenes provide a richer narrative, but the handful which do--billboard chat, Liv's motivations--are superb. It's criminal the extended fight scene at Aunt May's was left on the cutting room floor! The deleted and extended scenes were woven flawlessly into the movie, and the audio balancing was flawless.

I recommend this version to anyone who is a fan of the theatrical version! Though maybe not to a first time viewer who may be thrown off by the storyboard and unfinished CGI scenes.

(Watched on iPad (7th Gen) with Apple Earphones)

Audio/Video Quality (8/10) - Video Quality was great, looked like it came exactly from the Blu-ray. The same with the deleted scenes. I have issues with the audio through. In some movie scenes (especially when Peter B. Parker talks with Mary Jane), I noticed an audio echo in my speakers. I also noticed that the audio particularly focused on the right speaker throughout the whole movie.

Visual Editing (10/10) -The deleted scenes were edited flawlessly and fit perfectly in the movie.

Audio Editing (10/10) - The audio was seamless, and I didn't hear any rough/abrupt cuts between deleted scenes.

Narrative (9/10) - As I said before, the deleted scenes fit perfectly within the movie, and do not majorly damage the movie pace at all. The deleted scenes should honestly be officially in the movie, as they contain essential character development. Especially that deleted scene when B. Parker comforts Miles after the spidermen shame him at Aunt May's house, I was wondering why B. Parker didn't immediately go talk to Miles after he left in the movie as he's basically Miles's mentor. So yeah, that deleted scene really fixed that part of the movie I disliked.

This might be a minor nitpick, but I kinda wish the "How do I know I'm ready?" exchange in Miles' room wasn't fully replaced and the "Now, you don't have to be Spider-Man." was added after B. Parker's leap of faith speech. I believe one major theme of this movie was "don't overthink, just do it", so keeping that leap of faith speech would have greatly provided importance to that theme. There are other scenes however that also show the theme, so I get why it was replaced as we have other scenes for it.

Enjoyment (9/10) - Other than the audio echo issues and being open-minded with the unfinished animation, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie edit and wished this was the actual movie (aside from the finished animation, fixed audio, and my edit feedback of course).
-------------------------------------------------------------
To summarize my review, what a great edit to add to a film masterpiece and it makes it even better. It has its problems of course with the audio issues, but makes up with the skilled editing and its handpicked deleted scenes that perfectly fit in the film. In my opinion, it should have been in the original movie.

I recommend this fan edit to people who want more story and character development in this masterpiece, along with being open-minded with the unfinished animation inside the deleted scenes.

Thank you for making this fan edit!

(FYI if you want to mostly fix the audio focused on the right speaker. Turn on Mono Audio. For mobile, you can search "mono audio" in your device settings and there should be a toggle to turn on. For PC, you can search for it also on your computer search bar I believe.)

Had to rewatch the excellent Into the Spider-verse before the new film came out.

The film is wonderful, relatable, and insane. It really leans into its comic book roots and doesn’t take itself too seriously, in both art direction, story, and characters. Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen are both stars in the making. Once the other three multiverse Spider-people (Noir, Spider-Ham, Peni Parker SP//dr) make their appearance, the animators get to play even more as each character has a distinct art style. While this is Mile’s film, acting as an origin film and being the lead protagonist throughout.

But I think emotionally, I think it’s original creation (to my knowledge) for this film, Peter B. Parker which ties everything together. A Peter Parker from another dimension, a down on his luck, depressed, adult Peter, whose life just didn’t turn out to be fine, who’s buckled under the weight of the pressure of being Spider-man and it’s destroyed his personal life. Peter B.’s arc is the one that’s the most heartfelt for me, as through the film he learns from Miles about acting on the leap of faith just as much as Miles learns from his Spider-compadres about how to use the skills and be a Spider-man.

There’s all sorts of zany superheroic action throughout, but it’s the human moments that make this picture, like Peter B. constantly trying to lose Miles because he doesn’t want him to end up like him, or Miles trying to use a pick-up line on Gwen, or best yet, the interaction between father and son as Miles and his father embrace grateful for the relationship they both have.

So what’s up with the fanedit version.

A fanedit that reincorporates deleted scenes into the completed film. In other fanedits, particularly ones that are live action and don’t rely heavily on Special Effects, it’s a lot less intrusive. In animated films, the animation tends to be unfinished causing a brain adjustment. Bobson Dugnutt is an expert faneditor and if it weren’t for the fact that this was an animated film that made its extended scenes obvious, I probably wouldn’t have even been able to notice, that’s how good Bobson’s technical prowess is.

Nonetheless, it’s mostly the same film, just a little longer. Even unfinished some of these extended scenes are fun, like the extended fight at Aunt May’s house, or Peter B. additional lines at the restaurant explaining the multiverse using fries. Where it deviates is the very significant discussion between Peter B. and Miles on the billboard, there’s extra lines here, and because some of the scene is now unfinished it takes away the power of that scene and those lines entirely, for me. It’s far too distracting to get over. So I won’t rewatch it this way again, but I enjoyed the experiment.

I loved this so much. Even with how the deleted scenes were (understandably) unfinished, it felt fluid and worked all the way through the credits. It felt like a new experience. Love your edits, will be watching more and reviewing a couple more here soon. Cheers! Much love, and keep up the good work. - Juggy
