Hello everyone! 🙂
I’ve now seen the extended DVD editions of two of my favourite superhero movies for Christmas! They are ‘Spider-Man 2.1’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ Extended Edition. Both these exciting DVDs feature never-before-seen footage of the two Marvel superhero movies that were shown at the cinemas!
Both ‘Spider-Man 2’ and the 2005 film of ‘Fantastic Four’ are two superhero movies that mean something special to me! I consider them classic superhero movies, so it was lovely to have these extended DVD editions and watch the movies afresh with some brand-new scenes for me to enjoy!
I enjoyed the two extended movies for Christmas. Beforehand, I had read the brilliant novelizations by Peter David on both ‘Spider-Man 2’ and ‘Fantastic Four’. I was expecting scenes that I remembered from reading the novels in the extended movies. Some of the scenes were in the DVDs!
‘Spider-Man 2.1’ was brilliant, as I enjoyed the new extended action scenes and new scenes that feature character development for Peter Parker; Mary Jane; Harry Osborn; Aunt May; Doc Ock and J. Jonah Jameson. It was very funny when J. Jonah Jameson tried out the Spider-Man outfit in his office!
I found the first half of ‘Spider-Man 2.1’ better than the second half. There were more extended and new scenes in the first half compared to the second. But that didn’t worry me, as ‘Spider-Man 2’ is still a great masterpiece of a superhero movie and the new scenes helped me to enjoy this movie more.
The extended edition of ‘Fantastic Four’ was equally brilliant as ‘Spider-Man 2.1’. There weren’t a lot of brand-new action sequences in the extended version of the movie, but there were some lovely new scenes of character development for Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm.
I enjoyed some of the new romantic scenes between Reed and Sue and I especially enjoyed the new scenes between Ben and her love interest Alicia Masters. The second half of ‘Fantastic Four’ Extended Edition was better than the first half as there were more new scenes to enjoy in the movie.
‘Spider-Man 2.1’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ Extended Edition have been both great DVDs to watch for Christmas. They’re two of my favourite superhero movies and I loved watching them refresh with new scenes of character development and action and the casts in both films are as loveable as ever.
I’ve added new details to my reviews of ‘Spider-Man 2’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ on my blog, based on my reviews of these extended DVD editions!
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
Brilliant review of both movies Tim, I told you Spidrr-Man 2.1 was better than the theatrical version.
Bit gutted Fantastic Four didn’t feature more action but it’s far better than the awful recent remake.

Glad you enjoyed my reviews on the extended versions of these two superhero movies. I enjoyed them very much.
Yes you did tell me ‘Spider-Man 2.1’ was better than the theatrical version. I’m glad I took your advice as the new and extended scenes were very exciting to watch.
Yes I’m surprised ‘Fantastic Four’ didn’t have more extended scenes than new scenes in the film, but I did love those extra character moments for the characters.
I’m in no hurry to watch the 2015 remake of ‘Fantastic Four’. After hearing the criticism for it, I hope I never will.
Thanks for your comments, Simon.
