Be warned, if you did not see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 over the weekend, there will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
After taking in a whopping $92 million at the domestic box office this weekend, with a worldwide gross of nearly $370 million worldwide, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a bona fide box office hit, although it wasn't received too well by hardcore fans and critics alike. A petition has emerged on Change.org, which is asking Sony Pictures to release a rumored "director's cut" on Blu-ray and DVD, to fix what petition creator Muhesh Spaleesh from Mumbai, India calls a "disjointed narrative" and a "lack of character development."
Here is a list of rumored scenes that the petition wants to be included, which were likely cut to shorten the hefty run time of 142 minutes.
- An attack on Oscorp by the Green Goblin
An alternate scene in which a tumultuous scene is portrayed differently
Extended Times Square and Clocktower scenes
Another Peter/Gwen scene
Muhesh Spaleesh goes on to say that he hopes the director's cut is released so the fans can, "properly appreciate the huge amount of effort that went into the film."
It is believed that the "tumultuous scene" referred to in the petition is the death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). As for the OsCorp attack scene, there was a brief shot in one of the trailers that featured Felicity Jones as Felicia Hardy/Black Cat that teased this attack, although it was eventually left out of the final cut. Last month, it was confirmed that Black Cat, along with B.J. Novak's Alastair Smythe and his Spider Slayers will be included in the forthcoming sequels.
Other scenes that were teased in the marketing but left out of the final cut include Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) discussing Peter Parker, along with another scene where Harry reveals to Peter that OsCorp has been spying on him. It isn't known how long an ultimate director's cut may be, but you can CLICK HERE to sign the petition yourself, which currently has 517 supporters.
