"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was far from a universal hit when it was released back in May. The sequel was taken apart by critics and die hard fans alike because of the film's murky plot and a feeling of being way too crowded with characters and subplots.
The disappointing second chapter in Sony's franchise has made many fans wonder just where the property can go next. Since the film left theaters, release dates for future Spidey films have been jostled around as the Sony brass hopes to figure out just what to do after the sequel's disappointing performance.
With the release of the DVD and Blu-Ray disc coming on August 19, some information has been revealed about what the home video version of the film has in store. At the center of the deleted scenes is a scene that some are saying could have helped fix the sequels narrative. In this one particular deleted scene (embedded below), Peter Parker's beloved Gwen Stacy still is dead, but there is another surprising cameo by none other than Peter's dad, Richard, who was assumed to be long dead after a plane crash.
The shocking scene, which is included on the DVD and Blu-ray, shows Richard Parker having a graveside talk with Peter. When the disheveled Richard shows up at Gwen's grave to talk with his son, Peter is distraught and confused at just how his father survived and why he has waited so long to make contact with him.
"I know this is impossible to understand, Peter. I thought I knew what to say, but I don't. I don't know what to say to you-but I'm sorry. It's me. It's me, Peter. I'm sorry," according to the clip attained by Entertainment Weekly.
Confused and very upset at this turn of events, Peter does not believe that the man talking to him is really his father. Some have speculated that the man talking to Peter is none other than Sinister Six member Mysterio or the Chameleon. However, the scene was cut from the original film, leaving the explanation of what this was all about up in the air. No word has leaked if this scene will foreshadow any of the future Spider-Man films, but it certainly makes you wonder if the movie would have translated better had it made the final cut.
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is set to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 19th.
