A longer version of Peter Parker's Spider-Man: Homecoming VLog that showed just how he reacted to the events of Captain America: Civil War has surfaced online. The Vlog was a highlight for Spider-Man fans, showing off just what the wall-crawler thought of his time in Germany. Opening Homecoming with it showed fans just what had gone before and where Peter's mind was prior to the events of the film while setting the stage for brevity and laughs from the young almost-Avenger. This new cut shows off some further adventures, taking Peter Parker on his first international tour since the original spider-man movies of the 1970s. Check it out below.
There's a lot of new footage including Peter celebrating his hotel room, his victory, and taking some ladies swinging through the rooftops in an unintentional but funny homage to the Sam Raimi Spider-man films. The idea of a VLog is a nice way to update the character of Spider-man to a more contemporary setting. While Peter Parker is a photographer in the comics, having him document his exploits via digital video on his phone is a great way to connect with younger audiences as well as provide a new way for fans to see a character they've seen before.
The VLog goes on to explore Peter's encounter with some very lucky rooftop party goers, a look at a German breakfast, and add dimension to his relationship with Happy Hogan who might have found Peter is more like Tony Stark than he originally thought. Obviously, it's only the first of the deleted scenes that have hit the internet today, and it was obviously cut so as not to belabor the point of Peter's short presence in Germany, but it's still a fun look at his reality. Exploring the web-slinging from the perspective of a cell phone camera is something the filmmakers should consider bringing into the film itself, just to keep that unique new perspective that a young social-media aged Spider-Man brings fans.
Spider-Man: Homecoming clearly continues to connect the MCU at large. Hopefully, this trend of VLogs introducing fans to just what Peter is up to during his tenure on other films will continue.
