Man, I was so jazzed about seeing this, and man, I was so let down. I trust you folks can make your own opinions about this film, but there was a whole LOT of stuff missing from the final cut, including:
(Copied from IMDB Forums)
<div class=“PostQuote”>Brock enters the church
Eddie Brock’s walk towards his seat in the church is not shown.
American flag by daylight
I’m not sure of this one, but I don’t remember Spider-Man in front of the American flag by daylight. He only appears in front of it on his way to the construction site, at night.
MJ’s forgiveness speech
I can’t remember MJ’s speech which appears in the trailers:
MJ: “we have to forgive each other, or everything we ever were will mean nothing.”
Norman Osborn conversation
Not sure, but I missed his line “He took me away from you.” in the movie.
Symbiot spider logo
The actual transformation of the spider logo on Spider-Man’s chest is not shown in the movie, though it appears in every trailer.
Symbiot mirror monster
Like in the animated tv serie, Peter looks in the mirror and sees a monster… a flashforward?
Peter smiling at symbiot
Not sure, but I don’t remember Peter smiling at the symbiot in the closet.
A missing action shot Spider-Man swinging a steel bar into Sandman.
Just one shot missing that comes from the leaked trailer. The second pic is in the movie, but you just miss what happens just before it. In the movie the shot starts with the second pic as Brock looks at the black goo on his hand and freaks out. The first pic is a shot of him catching the symbiot drop.
Harry clapping his hands
Harry claps his hand for MJ’s performance as she breaks up with Peter. The clapping is not in the movie.
Peter versus Harry
Not sure, but I don’t remember Peter saying the line “I’m so gonna enjoy this” (from tv spot) to Harry before he starts to fight him.
Sandman & doctor - Penny’s cure
Sandman visits the doctor for Penny’s cure and promises him more money for research for a cure. Sandman gets frustrated and throws the doctor through some window or medial stuff.(Which is shown in trailers)
Sandman & family - construction battle
Notice that the Sandman background was a complete subplot which was cut from the movie. The doctor would go to the police and together they would go to Penny and ask her to stop her father. Penny and Sandman’s ex-wife appear at the construction site when Sandman is just about to smack Spider-Man and asks her father to stop it all, and that she understands.
Venom - construction battle
Some missing Venom action at the construction battle.
Sandman versus water
Sandman’s face in the trailer is visible, while in the movie it was completely mud instead of a human face.
Black and color
Just an alternate shot. In the movie, his mirror reflection is black.
However, if and when a special edition is released, and they don’t have this stuff on there, I’m going to see if I can attempt to do an edit or something. Maybe even a behind-the-scenes thing like Building Empire. I’ve got the leaked trailer, loads of on-set pictures, press kit photos, interviews, Comicon roundtables, the whole shebang.
