Unseen design for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Villain deleted bar scene has sparked discussions about whether it was a mistake to leave the scene out of the film. The unused villain designs, including one for Hammerhead, showcase the expert craftsmanship of the animators and character designers. Many believe that including these cut villains in the third Spider-Verse film would make the world feel more lived in and build a fleshed-out universe, similar to the first two films.
Spider-Verse Villain Designs Deleted Scene
The deleted scene in question was supposed to be part of the first act of the sequel, where Spot, the film’s villain, enters Marvel Comics’ The Bar With No Name. Spot is initially bullied out of the bar by other Spider-Man villains but would have returned in the cut post-credits scene to seek revenge with his newfound powers.
One of the Twitter posts from the Sony Animation character designer Jesus Alonso Iglesias reveals initial designs for Hammerhead, who was supposed to be part of the cut post-credits scene. The design fits perfectly with the style of the Spider-Verse movies and further supports the argument that the scene should have been included to better tie into Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.
There are several reasons why it is believed that Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse should include these cut villain designs. Firstly, it would showcase the expert craftsmanship of the animators and character designers who worked hard to create these fantastic designs. It would be a shame for their work to go unseen and including them in the film would rectify that.
Secondly, including a variety of Spider-Man villains in the third film would make the Spider-Verse world feel more lived in and fleshed out. The first two films were praised for their vibrant and distinct universes, and including the cut villains would continue that trend. It would also give these fantastic designs the spotlight they deserve.
In conclusion, the unused villain designs for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse should have been included in the film. Including them in the third film would not only showcase the talent of the animators and character designers but also make the Spider-Verse world feel more vibrant and lived in. It would be a missed opportunity to leave these designs on the cutting room floor.
