An extended cut of Spider-Man: Far From Home arrives in theaters this weekend, and a new trailer offers a glimpse of some of the new footage fans can expect to see. Far From Home is the second Marvel movie this year to get a theatrical re-release with bonus content, after the re-release of Avengers: Endgame, which included a tribute to Stan Lee, an unfinished scene with the Hulk, and a sneak peek at Far From Home.
Avengers: Endgame's re-release included six extra minutes of footage, whereas Spider-Man: Far From Home's extended cut has just four additional minutes. However, unlike Endgame, the extended cut of Far From Home features its new footage in the movie itself rather than at the end, and the VFX is therefore complete (which it wasn't in the Hulk scene).
The trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home's extended cut invites Marvel fans to celebrate the Labor Day weekend by checking out the (slightly) longer version of the movie. Some of the scenes in the promo are from the theatrical cut of the movie, but there are a few notable additions. One is an action sequence is actually one that was featured in the original trailers for Spider-Man: Far From Home, but didn't make it into the initial theatrical cut. In this action scene, Spidey takes on a group of bad guys in New York and then exchanges banter with the cops before declaring that he's going on vacation. In the second scene, Peter is apparently using his Spider-Drone to get up to no good at school. And in the final scene, he pays a visit to deli owner Mr. Delmar, whose store was unfortunately blown up in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Many Marvel fans have been less than enthusiastic about Spider-Man: Far From Home's extended cut, pointing to the fact that four extra minutes isn't really worth the price of seeing the movie again. Others have responded by declaring they won't go back and see the movie while Spider-Man's future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains uncertain. The fandom is still reeling from the news that Marvel Studios will no longer be producing Spider-Man movies, after efforts between Disney and Sony Pictures to renegotiate the shared custody of the character fell apart.
If you miss the extended cut of Spider-Man: Far From Home in theaters, you can still see the deleted scenes into the Blu-ray release, which hit shelves on October 1 and includes more than an hour of special features. You can also buy the Digital HD copy of the movie from September 17.
