The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Alternate Ending. Mark Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) alternate ending is a deleted scene featuring a character long thought dead, one wisely kept dead by this scene not making it into the film.

A detailed description of the scene:

The scene takes place toward the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Peter mourning at Gwen Stacy’s grave. Suddenly, Richard Parker appears behind him, looking grizzled with a short white beard. Yes, that Richard Parker. The one who was supposed to have died in the plane crash shown at the start of the movie.

Initially, Peter seems upset, but he thaws as the two start talking. Richard apologizes profusely and explains that he had to disappear to avoid Oscorp and protect Peter. But naturally, all of the mysteries surrounding the dad’s supposed death and miraculous not-death are left open-ended because then there’d be no subplot to pick up on in the sequel.

Peter and his father hug, sit down on a bench, and talk some more. The dad gives a speech about how he thought he was going to save the world, but he now realizes that Peter’s the one destined to save the world. The conversation culminates in Peter’s dad delivering the “with great power comes great responsibility” line traditionally given by Uncle Ben.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s stars B.J. Novak, Denis Leary, Marton Csokas, Martin Sheen, Chris ZylkaAndrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Paul Giamatti, Stan Lee, Sarah Gadon, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, and Sally Field.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s plot synopsis: “We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.”
