A part of the Marvel fandom will surely wonder over the absence of a certain action scene from Spider-Man: Far From Home which was mainly part of almost all promotional trailers and clips released for the movie so far. However, though the cut scene won’t be shown in any of the theatrical version–it will be available as part of extras released with the blu-ray.
The scene in question shows Spider-Man wearing his Iron Spider suit as he goes up against a couple of thugs and messes around with the NYPD cops before heading to his Europe trip. Unfortunately, that scene has been cut from Spider-Man: Far From Home and director Jon Watts has explained why.
“That was in the movie for a while,” Watts told io9 over the phone. “It’s part of a montage where Peter is running a bunch of errands that he has to do before he flies to Europe. And the joke was his errands were he had to buy a dual headphone adapter…he had to get one of those European travel plugs, he sold some of his action figures so that he would have enough money to [Minor Spoiler Removed], pick up his passport, and he had to take down this extremely dangerous crime family. That’s Spider-Man’s to-do list.”
The director went on to explain that the tiny action scene with the Resturant setting, “just ended up not being necessary to the flow of the movie. But it is a fun little sequence and that whole sequence will be one of the extra features when the movie comes out on Blu-ray.”
Tom Holland also explained that the scene’s purpose was to help “jumpstart the movie” which picks up shortly after the Endgame Snap event and Peter Parker and his friends are “blipped” back to existence after 5 years of disappearance.
