Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Extended Cut

Alt-Universe Cut Confirmed for Home Video Release

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has already raised approximately 360 million US dollars worldwide (budget: 90 million). On February 24th, 2019, it even won the Oscar for best animated film and Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street), one of the directors and screenwriters, announced in an interview that there will be an extended cut:

[Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse] had an unusual amount of material at every stage of production. So, an insane amount of storyboard material, like insane, like break your high end edit systems insane. An insane amount of layout, an insane amount of finished animation that didn't make it into the movie… an unusual amount. So the Alt-Universe Cut contains a bunch of that stuff that we chose not to put in the movie, but that in an alternate universe easily could have ended up in the movie. So, uh, that's kind of the premise behind it.

Bob Persichetti, who also directed, also stressed that the theatrical version was the better version in his opinion, because otherwise the Extended Cut would have been shown in cinemas. But some special scenes could be built into the Alt-Universe Cut. They also stated that at one point the extended version was even more based on the comic.

The alt version is more beholden to the idea that Miles and Ganke were buddies and roommates, and there's a lot more of roommate stuff happening.

According to Screen Rant, the new version is supposed to have 30 minutes of new material. We'll see about that later on. The Alt-Universe Cut will be available for home cinema in the US from March 19, 2019, in addition to its release as video-on-demand.
