Watch Deleted Scenes from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN That Tease More of Peter Parker’s True Origin

When Sony’s reboot The Amazing Spider-Man opened this summer, much was made about the fact that the finished film left out plenty of footage that was teased in the trailers.  It wasn’t simply that the theatrical release was missing a few scenes here and there, but it was pretty obvious that a good chunk of the background on Peter Parker’s parents and Parker’s true origin (ie. “The Untold Story”) had been excised in favor of letting that storyline play out over a trilogy of films.

Director Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield, and Emma Stone are all poised to return for the sequel, with Shailene Woodley possibly playing Mary Jane Watson, and now the first film is getting ready to hit Blu-ray and DVD.  The home video release will include a number of deleted scenes, and a few of them have popped up online a bit early, revealing some of Parker’s origin story that was cut.  Hit the jump to take a look.

amazing-spider-man-movie-image-andrew-garfield-2The following scenes are from a sequence that was teased in many of The Amazing Spider-Man’s trailers, and formed the basis for the theory that Parker’s true origin was edited out of the finished film.  It was rumored that Parker’s transformation into Spider-Man would be revealed to be the result of something already in his DNA rather than just a radioactive spider bite.  The spider bite triggers the transformation, but the basis of “The Untold Story” was thought to be that Parker carried this Spider-Man gene all along.

Not only does this sequence conclude the story arc of Rajit Ratha (Irrfan Khan), Dr. Connors’ superior, but the character drops a tidbit about how “the science is working quite well” in Parker.  This seems to confirm the assumption that Parker carries something in his DNA that’s the result of his father’s work, and it’s safe to assume that we’ll be learning much more about this in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Watch the deleted scenes below (via Vulture), which will likely appear on the Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man.  The film hits stores on November 9th.
