Some scenes were cut for a reason.

The Spider-Man films have plenty of scenes that didn't make the cut. Deleted scenes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man movies can be found here.

    open/close all folders 
  • Spider-Man has a number of deleted subplots and scenes, including the infamous "World Trade Center web" trailer that was reportedly cut from the film after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Likewise, there were deleted scenes from early trailers and story descriptions (including a sequence of Peter building mechanical webshooters, which was seen on a trailer that debuted at E3 2001 and a reported cameo by Eddie Brock, who was played by a minor actor) that still haven't been officially released.
    • There's some debate over whether or not it originally appeared in the final film, but a famous trailer in which Spider-Man captures some baddies getting away in a helicopter in a web between the Twin Towers were tastefully removed following the September 11th attack.
  • After drawing his costume, Peter Parker was originally going to have to make his own web-shooters instead of his organic webbing, however this was cut entirely.
  • Stan Lee had a different cameo from, originally having to ask Peter to buy sunglasses and reference the X-Men, another Marvel property that had a film produced.
  • After saving a couple of people by web-pulling them away from the falling debris, Peter was seen by a couple of children, praising Peter for what he has done, ending the scene with Peter's shushing about his secret.
  • An alternative scene of Norman talking to his mask was filmed but cut from the film, the only footage of it can be seen is by the blooper reel.

    Spider-Man 2 
  • Spider-Man 2 had so much deleted content that it was eventually released in an extended version called Spider-Man 2.1. Even then, there's a TV version that has additional scenes that weren't included in the 2.1 cut (including Mary Jane telling Peter about her career and him agreeing to see her play in a more downbeat tone while they're talking outside his house).
  • Mr. Aziz yells a simple "GO" instead of "GooooOOOOO".

    Spider-Man 3 
  • Spider-Man 3 had boatloads of footage cut prior to release, with much of it only being seen in trailers or early screenings. This included more subplots like Sandman's quest to cure his daughter's sickness, an alternate scene of Eddie Brock joining forces with Sandman while the latter is playing with his daughter at a park, a sequence where a distraught Mary Jane speaks to Peter about Harry in his apartment just before she's kidnapped, and much more footage of Peter taking out criminals in the symbiote costume (and being confronted by a nightmarish reflection in his mirror). Some scenes make an appearance in Spider-Man 3: Editor's Cut. The reason Harry's butler waited until 3 to explain how he knew Norman's death was an accident was because a deleted scene showed that he was a hallucination, which fills a major plot gaffe.
    • The movie was originally going start with a boy imitating his hero Spider-Man as his mother retrieve him from the rope he was swinging from in Central Park.
