Some people can't wait to see it, others despise it: The third Spider-Man reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming has already premiered in movie theaters. With Civil War, the hero has found his place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and because of it, encountering other Marvel hero is an option now. The most famous hero Spider-Man encounters is Iron Man. Unfortunately, not a single scene with Iron Man made it in the movie. It appears there was a lack of actual "trailer shots" that could get the fans excited - the rescue mission with the ship does not have footage spectacular enough for the trailer. For that reason, new footage that could be used in the trailer had been made. Plain and simple. A scene with Vulture looks different in the actual movie as well. This is not uncommon but the fact that the producer release a statement to explain their actions definately is.
There are two really cool shots in the trailers that I didn’t see in the movie.
Ooo, which ones?
There’s the shot of Spider-Man and Iron Man swooping by.
And there’s a shot of the Vulture coming down through what looks like a hotel atrium.
Yeah. That is a hotel atrium.
Were those cut from the finished movie or were those shots made just for the trailer?
The hotel atrium shot was originally created for Comic-Con, for like a sizzle reel before we had really shot anything; we had shot like two weeks of footage or something. That was never meant to be in the movie. But I did use that angle for Vulture’s reveal at the beginning of the movie; Vulture’s hovering, swooping towards the camera like that. I used that shot, it’s just no longer in an Atlanta hotel atrium.
And then shot of [Spider-Man and Iron Man] together in Queens, that was never in the movie.
Is it a thing where someone says “We need a shot of them together for the trailer” and then someone makes it? How does it work?
I think what happened was in the very first trailer they wanted a shot of Spider-Man and Iron Man flying together. And they were going to use something from the Staten Island Ferry [scene], but it just didn’t look that great — the background plate, because the Staten Island terminal is a very simple building. It almost looks like an unrendered 3D object. So I think I was like “Let’s just put them in Queens. Let’s use that as a backdrop.” Because we couldn’t just create a whole new shot, so let’s just use one of these shots of the subway; put them in there.”
I feel a little weird that there’s a shot in the trailer that’s not in the movie at all, but it’s a cool shot. It’s funny, I forgot that we did that.
