    I made a thread on here before regarding deleted scenes/proof of deleted scenes from Spider-Man 1.

    Well, in Spider-Man 3 when Harry remembers his father's death and it flash's back to Spider-Man 1 where Harry is holding Norman in his arms, that was deleted footage from part 1.

    I was watching Spider-Man 3 with producer's commentaries and Laura Ziskin remarked in saying that was indeed deleted footage/not re-shot from Spider-Man 1.

    Hope they come out with a Director's Cut of Spider-Man 1 one day. Would be nice Raimi.

    I doubt they would, the only important footage would be that and Stan Lee cameo that i really heard of being deleted. Its not like it will change the story of Spider-Man.

    If nothing else, Spider-Man needs to put out a better DVD, including the scenes with mechanical web shooters, the alternate suit, and a bunch of other testing they did on the movie, that we haven't see other than websites.

    I'm sure you'll see all of that on the 10th Anniversary Edition DVD.

    Sam Raimi has said time and time again the versions released in theaters are his director's cut. He even said Spider-man 2.1 was just Sony's way of making more money. He has also said relatively little was cut from the first two movies, though it seems a lot was in Spider-man 3.

    Smit is right. There can never be a true directors cut for 1 or 2. Raimi released the films he wanted. There was no studio interference and he was happy with the films he released.

    Directors cuts are made by directors who either had a studio butcher their visions, or directors who didn't like what they released for one reason or another and decide to change it later.

    Peter Jackson says that both the theatrical and extended versions of the Lord Of The Rings films are his "directors cuts" and says that he dislikes the term. He said he values both as different paths into Middle-Earth, one more for the fans of the books, the other more for general audiences.
    It would be good if some Superhero movies did stuff like this, releasing versions more suited just for the comic fans on DVD, and not calling them "directors cuts".

    The difference is that Jackson had hours of unused footage. Raimi does not. According to Raimi, there is no unused footage for the first film, and the unused footage from SM2 is stuff he didn't like. It's all the crap in 2.1 that he tossed.

    The deleted stuff in SM2 didn't enhance the movie (some I think was better cut in fact). I don't see it doing much for SM1 either, and I doubt much was cut. The scene they reused in SM3 has served its use (since it was a good addition to SM3).

    Deleted scenes may only help SM3 as far as improving the movie as I see it, but again, I didn't see SM3's cut footage, so I can't make that claim. But we do know, there is more from SM3 cut than the other 2 movies.

    The shot of Norman in Harry's arms from Spider-Man 3 IS a un-used shot from Spider-Man 1. The filmmakers commentary for 3 confirmed it. I think it was the editor, Bob Murawski, who said it. If someone already had confirmed it, I'm apologise in advance.

    oops! Just realized that it had been confirmed( re: top of page) , sorry!
