Currently, I’m in the midst of re-cutting Ultimate Spider-Man as a series, but with No Way Home’s release immanent (it’s out in the UK sometime today), I wanted something to mark the occasion
The goal of this project is to stitch some, but not all, of Harry Osborn’s story arc from season one together. This film would use the trilogy where Harry becomes Venom as well as odds and ends of other episodes such as the pilot, “Exclusive” (just to give us some Peter and Mary Jane interaction), and “Attack of the Beatle” for the final scene, giving Agent Coulson and Aunt May some development and ending the film on an upbeat note
I had the idea of also using the live-action alternate ending to Iron Man 1, where Fury is talking to Tony about radioactive spider-bites among other things. He makes mention of a ‘spoiled brat who has difficulty playing with others’. He’s referring to Tony in the deleted scene, but he may as well be referring to Peter in this version.
This does not rock the boat as far as removing the comedic side-gags or fourth wall breaks, so if you weren’t a fan of those, you’re going to have to grin and bear it
Most commercial fades have been cut
Special thanks to reddit user focketskenge, who’s own USM edit inspired me to tackle this show
Pretty simple edit here, all I did was replace the last half of the movie with the third episode of ‘What If’ and edited out the post-credits of Iron Man 2. Sorted.
NEXT AVAILIBLE IN MARCH 2022
Very much the entirety of Avengers: Infinity War, but with more closure added to it courtesy of some Endgame footage. No cliffhanger. Now the movie ends with Thor killing Thanos at the garden
Months back, clickbait merchants and rumour mongers were keen to share news that there would be some kind of Deadpool connection in the ill-fated Dark Phoenix movie. While this somewhat manifested a year earlier in Deadpool 2 with the X-Men’s cameo in that film, there was no surprise cameo from Wade for this.
So while binging both movies I worked out a way of integrating several choice scenes from Deadpool 2 into a cut of Dark Phoenix that gives the movie not just something that brings two well received X-Film franchises together (and yes, the fact both of these films have the same initials in their titles doesn’t escape me), but also provides closure to the series that doesn’t corrupt the timeline the way the original version of Dark Phoenix did, and also sets up a hypothetical fifth film in the First Class timeline to show the saga of the X-Men really ought to have continued.
Two other minor tweeks aside, I left the rest of the movie alone
-Added FANEDIT.ORG Logo to beginning
-Cut the ‘X-Women’ lines from Raven
-Integrated the Deadpool and Colossus scene from Deadpool 2 where the X-Men narrowly avoid being seen by Wade
-Just after we meet the aliens , I Integrated the scene where Colossus tries to persuade Wade into joining the team on a mission, with Wade saying bad things will happen, this leads directly into the scene the X-Men first confront Jean and Raven is killed
-End credits feature a very special performance of Celine Dion’s ‘Ashes’ from Deadpool 2
-Deadpool uses Cable’s time device to change history and undo the events of the film.
-Post-credits is Cable time-jumping from the future to the present to set that part up. The saga continues
I decided to insert the “No Good Deed” Deadpool short into the actual Deadpool 2 feature, and tried to transistion from that to when he heads towards the taxi, I intended to convey that the people responsible for murdering the homeless man were now after Wade for. I also took the opertunity to place Cable’s introduction at the beginning of the movie.
