Spider-Man 3 - Editor's Cut Temporarily Available
It all seems a little unusual, no doubt. The comic character Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's trilogy perfectly illustrated at the beginning of the new millennium that movie versions of comic books can handle a serious approach quite well. Marvel had noticed that as well because they started their Marvel Universe step by step a few years later.
Even though the box office result of Spider-Man 3 was reasonable, not all fans were satisfied contentwise. That being said, it might be interesting that a new cut was available as digital download on Amazon.com for a little while. The new cut is called Editor's Cut which does not exactly imply alterations following Sam Raimi's instructions. Maybe, it was released simply too early which would also explain why Amazon does not offer it anymore.
It seems weird because a Spider-Man reboot consisting of two installments (The Amazing Spider-Man & The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Rise of Electro) has been released in the meantime. In addition to that, Spider-Man has become also become a sidekick of The Avengers. Not to mention the latest Spider-Man movie (Spider-Man - Homecoming). All that makes another cut of the 2007 movie a footnote at best. However, it is very likely that the Spider-Man 3 Editor's Cut will be part of the upcoming Blu-ray box that will be released on 06/13/2017 in the US.
