The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
- While the Mary Jane Watson sequences were shot but excluded from the final film, the script establishes Mary Jane as Peter's next door neighbor who has an alcoholic, abusive father, sports a Spider-man tattoo and builds motorcycles in her spare time, asides from her waitress job. At one point Peter confronts her father to lay off her. Also, before Gwen heads to London, prior to the final battle, she gives a piece of dating advice to Mary Jane, telling her to date a nerd, hence signaling her go ahead and get Peter.
- Max originally lives with his handicapped mother at home and once he returned home as Electro, he noticed that his mother was standing and got paid a hefty compensation by Oscorp. He gets angry and begins using his powers, which is what sets off his confrontation with the police in Times Square, not a weird moment where he just starts sucking on electrical wires for no reason.
- J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson from the Daily Bugle are supposed to appear in the film, but director Marc Webb had difficulty of finding an actor that can better J.K. Simmons performance in the Sam Raimi Spider-man trilogy. There's a written segment with Peter, who is a student at Empire State University, bringing his first Spider-Man pictures to Jameson, who gives him a tour of the Daily Bugle. Jameson complains that the Internet is killing the newspaper business; later, Spidey and Electro's first fight send them crashing through the Daily Bugle offices and the printing presses.
- Rather than in was in the finished film, Peter actually gave his blood to help Harry. The Goblin suit was better explained, as it was secretly built by Richard Parker for Norman Osborn. When Richard didn't give his blood to Norman, the suit was hidden in Norman's boathouse, only to be eventually found by Harry.
- Rather than seven months, as the time period of the film takes place, it instead plays out in 18 months. The second act of the film jumps one year later after the graduation scene, making Peter's forlorn attitude towards Gwen cute instead of creepy, and it establishes that they're college students. This makes Gwen's application to Oxford make more sense.
- The deleted scenes in The Amazing Spider-man seems to show that Dr. Ratha (Irfan Khan) was killed, but however, he survives at the end of the previous film and he was originally intended to appear in this film, as to establish the film continuity. The character of Donald Menken (Colm Feore) in the film was in actually a replacement character for Ratha, with both have the same motive of engineering Harry dismissal from Oscorp.
- Rhino and Jorge, the little kid, originally do not appear.
- Gwen's death plays out similarly as in the finished film but while she's clinging on to her life, she tells Peter to never give up, a continuation from the talk she had with Mary Jane earlier on. It also gives an echo of George Stacy's final words to Peter at the end of the first film.
- Instead of Peter playing Gwen's graduation speech at the end, his father Richard finally shows up alive, saying that he had been watching over Peter and convinces him to become Spider-man again. Richard would eventually say the film's final line, "With great power comes great responsibility", hence providing a nice working phrase into the new series.
