I’ve always wanted to try to do a fanedit and since I haven’t seen much of anything for Spider-Man 3 I decided to give this a shot. Spider-Man 3 is a movie that I love to watch because of all of the “wtf moments” (emo Parker, Harry’s butler scene, lab scientists, etc.), but I felt that cleaning the movie up just a tad would make the whole movie flow so much better so it fits win with the other two films…oh and getting rid of the whole “Sandman killed Uncle Ben” recon…I’ve always hated that. This makes the movie much less distracted and instead it focuses on Peter’s struggles.
This fanedit is based off of the Editor’s Cut and not the Theatrical Cut since it was already a step in the right direction.
Theatrical Runtime: 2hr 19min

Hopefully I did a decent job putting this together, my video editor was giving me trouble with some cuts I wanted to make. I would love to have some feedback and criticisms.
