Scoop up some more Spider-Man action.

Spider-Man: Far From Home was a hit at the box office, swinging past $1 billion worldwide. And now that it's coming to home video, there are plenty of extra tidbits caught in the web.

A tweet sent Tuesday from the film's official account says, "The biggest Spider-Man movie ever just got BIGGER with over an hour of never-before-seen content, including this all-new short film, behind-the-scenes & more!"

The "all-new short film" mentioned is one of the scenes shown in the extended film recently re-released in theaters, and features Peter Parker (Tom Holland ) using a Spider-Bot to reopen the passport pick-up window at his local post office so he doesn't miss out on his European school trip.

The home release will also include more deleted scenes, a gag reel and a variety of short featurettes.

To absolutely no one's surprise, fans responded to the tweet with pleas to bring Holland's Spidey back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe . That's been the prime topic for Spider-Man fans ever since the mid-August news that Sony and Marvel were unable to reach an agreement to keep working together regarding the character. Though Spider-Man is a Marvel Comics character, his movie rights are owned by Sony, not Disney-owned Marvel Studios. The character has freely blended with the MCU characters in recent films thanks to the agreement, but that looks to no longer be possible.

Spider-Man: Far From Home comes to digital on Sept. 17, and to Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD on Oct. 1. Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site.
