Spider-Man Far From Home Deleted Scene Shows Thanos Snapping Away Even More Characters
Spider-Man: Far From Home is available on 4K and Blu-ray on October 1.
We're well aware that in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos, played by Josh Brolin, dusted so many people--half of all living beings, in fact. And yes, it was painful to watch characters like Peter Parker (Tom Holland) temporarily meet the ends of their lives, not realizing what's happening to them. However, it's not until the deleted scenes from Spider-Man: Far From Home that we see the most devastating victims of the blip, as the movie called it.
In the scene, which is titled "Betty Blips," we see both Betty Brant (Angourie Rice) and Jason Ionello (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.) doing their news broadcast at school when the snap happens. All too quickly they start turning to dust. Well, actually, they start fading away because visual effects on the scene clearly aren't done. Honestly, it makes the moment kind of funny.
As they fade out, Betty begs for help and asks what's happening. The scene then quickly cuts to Iron Man's (Robert Downey Jr.) snap from Avengers: Endgame, with the two instantly returning to the show's set, only to find someone else in Betty's spot, anchoring the news. "What just happened?" she screams in the scene. "Oh, excuse me. You're in my chair." Jason is much less composed, vomiting behind them and asking where his chair went.
It's a very funny moment, but one that would have been hard to place in the movie. While footage of the reverse snap is scene during Far From Home, in which the school's marching band reappears during a basketball game, it's such a quick moment that dwelling on it even longer would not have worked. Still, it's exciting to see that this particular moment was filmed and is now available.
The home release of Spider-Man: Far From Home comes loaded with other special features, including more deleted scenes, a bunch of featurettes, and even a short film about Peter Parker's daily routine--most of which is footage that was included in the theatrical rerelease.
Spider-Man: Far From Home won't be out on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD until October 1, but it is now available digitally through various storefronts, like Google Play, Vudu, Movies Anywhere, and iTunes.
