These cut gems would make their shows and movies so much better.

It often happens that the script of a movie undergoes many revisions, and as a result nothing remains of the original idea.

But it is much more interesting to see scenes that had been filmed but for one reason or another had to be abandoned.

But they are often the ones that make it possible to understand how much more interesting the movie would be with them in the final cut.

Raiders of the Lost Arc

The eerie scene with the ark struck the first viewers of the movie. Antagonists died horrible deaths, while Indiana Jones and his girlfriend somehow knew not to look at the Ark when they opened it.

The truth is, the Imam told Indiana that in a scene that was not in the movie.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

There could have been a lot more humor in the new Star Wars. In the deleted scene Han Solo mocks a detachment of stormtroopers who threaten him and his friends with weapons and the Supreme Leader Snoke.

First Han mispronounces his name, then he wonders why Snoke is supreme. After forcing his companions to surrender their weapons, he still refuses to part with his pistol, claiming it is still broken.

House of the Dragon

As soon as House of the Dragon season one was released, series director Greg Yaitanes said that a powerful scene was cut during editing. The scene includes a fight between Rhaenyra and Alicent.

They settle things violently right after the news of Rhaenyra's father and Alicente's wedding. Moreover, another scene was not included in the final version – Rhaenyra helps Alicent put on a wedding dress.

The first appearance of the demonic clown Pennywise in the It remake is the most memorable scene in the movie. It turns out that director Andy Muschietti filmed a different version of the chilling scene.

In it, instead of dragging Georgie into the depths of the terrifying sewer tunnels, the clown hands him the lost boat and the boy gratefully runs home.

It is likely that this scene was not originally planned to be included in the final version, but it would certainly have received the approval of the majority of the viewers.

Spider-Man 2

Due to the constant internal conflict between his normal life and his superhero life, Peter decides to break with his alter ego and try to fix his personal life.

So he drops his mask and stops being Spider-Man for a relatively decent part of the movie. It is at this moment that the events of the scene removed from the movie take place.

Someone finds Spider-Man's discarded suit and brings it to the editor of the Daily Bugle. He puts on a suit and starts imitating web-shooting.

It's not every day you see Oscar-winning actor JK Simmons as Spider-Man.
