10 More Minutes of SPIDER-VERSE Footage Might Be On The Way

Hopefully by now, you’ve seen Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (and if you haven’t, seriously, what are you waiting for?? It’s amazing!) I have personally seen it three times, and another theatrical viewing is not out of the question because it really is that good. Now, thanks to the folks at Collider (via CBR), we’ve learned that Spider-Verse fans can all rejoice, as there may be a bit more footage from the film coming to us soon.On of the film’s three directors, Bob Persichetti, revealed that about ten minutes of fully animated film wound up on the cutting room floor, which is doesn’t happen often for animated films, where rendering takes a lot of time and money. Persichetti said, “a rare thing for an animated film is that there’s animation on the cutting room floor. There’s about ten minutes of that from this movie, which is a really high number.” While he didn’t actually say those ten minutes will be on the actual forthcoming Blu-ray, given that time and money was spent on them, it would only make sense Sony would try to makes some money back on that investment.Of course, it’s also possible those scenes could be incorporated into a potential Spider-Verse sequel, several of which have already been announced, including one featuring Spider-Gwen and the Spider-Women. This could be similar to how unused footage of Carrie Fisher from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi is being repurposed for Episode IX. But we are pretty sure we are going to be seeing new and probably hilarious scenes of Miles Morales and his fellow Spider-people one way or another here pretty soon.
