Spider-Man: Far From Home actor Martin Starr -- who plays Mr. Harrington, Peter Parker's teacher -- has revealed which deleted scene from the movie he wishes has made the original theatrical cut.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Starr described the scene in detail. "We're running along the river and we all stop and look up at them [Mysterio's Elementals] fighting," the Freaks and Geeks alum shared. "I tell all the kids to run away, to save themselves."
He continued, "It's me, I'm cursed. And then I look at the monsters and I say, 'Take me. I'm the one you want.' And like it's this big impassioned moment, and then almost die as like random pieces of debris start landing around me and I thought it was a funny feat."
The comment of Starr's character being "cursed" is certainly an interesting one, as Mr. Harrington seems to have a long history of school trips going horribly awry. Prior to Mysterio and the Elementals running amok on his class' vacation in Europe, their trip to the Washington Monument in Spider-Man: Homecoming was similarly chaotic. Furthermore -- in Homecoming -- Mr. Harrington alludes to yet another terrible incident having taken place before that. In an interview with CBR, Starr explained that J.B. Smoove's Mr. Dell believing Mr. Harrington to be cursed was originally slated to be a running joke in Far From Home.
While the sequence of Mr. Harrington attempting to sacrifice himself was not featured as a part of Far From Home's initial run, the actor admits he has not seen the extended theatrical re-release. As such, he is unsure if the sequence made the cut the second time around. Still, while he liked the scene, he understands why it may have ultimately been left on the cutting room floor.
"I get why it may not have fit the rhythm of those moments," Starr said. "But it think it... there's a chance it's in the extended cut. I know it came very close to being in the movie. But that was very fun. I just kept laughing as we were doing it. So, that's a good sign."
