Spider-Man offered people an inside look at the life of a teenaged superhero at the beginning of his latest film, but he left a lot of footage on the cutting room floor.
An extended sequence from the home release of Spider-Man: Homecoming provides an extended look at the Wallcrawler’s vlog-like “a Film by Peter Parker,” chronicling his time in the airport battle during Captain America: Civil War. Check out the video above!
Parker gets recruited by Iron Man to help take down Captain America for violating the Sokovia Accords, and whisks the fledgling Avenger away from his home in Queens to help him capture the rogue in Germany.
Apparently, though, that wasn’t the only bit of superhero action the Webslinger got into on his trip to Europe.
After freaking out over his confrontation with the other superheroes, Spidey starts flipping out for the camera and prompts Happy Hogan to be the mean parent and tell him to go to sleep — that much we already saw in the film.
But how’s a Spider-Man expected to sleep after a day like that?
The youthful exuberance is portrayed deftly by Tom Holland, providing yet another reason why Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures made the correct choice in picking him for their newest Spider-Man.
And when he gets caught for a nighttime adventure during which he just happens to save the German Chancellor, he maintains the charm despite earning Happy’s ire.
The scene is marred by a first-person parkour-and-web-slinging scene that’s difficult to watch, and overall the run time is pretty long. It makes sense why it was cut down to maintain the momentum of the theatrical cut, but it fits in perfectly as a special feature for the digital and Blu-ray versions.
Sure, it’s hard for those millennial youths to stick to one thing, but we wouldn’t mind seeing the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming begin with a similar kind of sequence like this. After all, we are in the height of the YouTube generation. May as well embrace it.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is out now on Digital HD and debuts on Blu-ray and DVD on October 17.
