Spider-Man: Homecoming has been out for a month, but fans are already looking forward to its Blu-ray. The coming-of-age film fully ushered Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but some great scenes did get cut from its final cut. However, the 4K Ultra Blu-ray HD edition of the movie will come with exciting deleted scene, and one has got fans buzzing online.

The scenes sound intriguing enough to make the Blu-ray’s price tag worth it, but fans are eyeing one clip in particular. The list details a scene titled “Triskelion Cleanup,” and MCU fans should make some big connections with that name.
After all, the Triskelion is best-known as being the headquarters for SHIELD. Or, well, it was. Captain America: The Winter Soldier ended with the building being all but demolished after Steve Rogers brought down Project Insight and razed Hydra from within SHIELD. The location is one where Director Nick Fury spent years working, so it housed lots of secret tech the public couldn’t be made privy about.
So, naturally, the Vulture may have wanted to steal from the site’s clean-up. The baddie made a living thieving, and Adrian Toomes was always looking for material to resell. Scoring goodies from the Triskelion fallout would’ve been a good score for Toomes’ crew, so the villain apparently cased the join before or during Spider-Man: Homecoming.
If you were hoping film's special features might contain a nod to Uncle Ben, then you can let those dreams down. Screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein spoke with Entertainment Weekly about scenes they ultimately cut before filming began, and its Uncle Ben nod was one to go. “We did talk about there being a scene where [May] references him directly,” Daley said.
“It was when [Peter] was getting ready for homecoming and the wardrobe she was giving Peter was all Uncle Ben’s clothes. It was a nice moment, but we also knew that it veered away from his arc,” he continued. “If you’re going to talk about someone’s death, you don’t want it to be a throwaway.”
