One of Spider-Man: Homecoming's standout scenes doesn't involve intense fight scenes or death-defying stunts, but a very inquisitive high school kid. But according to one of the film's screenwriters, an additional - and rather personal - line was almost included in the scene.
In the film's first act, Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) unintentionally revealed his superhero identity to his high school best friend, Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon). The next day, Ned asks Peter every question he can think of related to being Spider-Man. But according to co-screenwriter John Francis Daley, an early version of the script had Ned ask one more question - related to Peter's webs.
"The only one that we had that they cut was, 'Do the webs come out of your body?'" Daley explained to Yahoo Movies. "And Peter's like, 'I'm not a monster!'"
The line provided a sort of subtle reference to Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man trilogy, which had Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) able to create the webs out of his body. But in the long run, it makes sense that the line wasn't included, as it allowed the film to focus more on Peter's scientific engineering of his web fluid.
