'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Blu-ray will Contain More Captain America PSAs

While Spider-Man: Homecoming had a lot of fun moments scattered throughout the film (we go more in-depth in our full review), one particular joke involves the "educational" videos recorded by Captain America that schools in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are required to show to students.

The movie implies that an exhausted Cap was forced to record several of these before he became a "war criminal" during Captain America: Civil War, and according to director Jon Watts, there are in fact many more fake public service announcements that he and Chris Evans recorded. Speaking to Collider, Watts said that the movie's eventual Blu-ray will have all of them combined into a special feature:

Opening quote
"We put it together like it was the actual DVD that they show at the school, so it just is clicking from one to another to another. I just wrote pages of them 'cause I had Chris Evans for however amount of time… I think we had a teleprompter actually, so he was just… It was like Captain America just showed up and had to do this stuff for the government. He's just reading it off the scrolling thing and being like,''Are you sure you want me to say this?'"
Closing quote


Since the PSAs are supposed to be government-approved and wholesome (to the point of absurdity) so teachers like Coach Hannibal Buress can safely show them to students like Peter Parker, expect to see Captain America giving bizarre takes on doing drugs, sex education, what to do during an alien invasion of Manhattan, etc.

Or since it sounds like Watts and Evans were just having fun with a teleprompter while filming the movie's Steve Rogers cameo, it may just be Cap reading out nonsensical advice, which is what Watts seems to imply.

There are at least ten different PSAs from Watts and Evans in there, presumably including the ones that made it into Homecoming. Even though the movie's Blu-ray release is probably pretty far off (the movie only just opened in theaters last week, after all), this honestly sounds hilarious, and it might be one incentive to actually buy a Blu-ray disc in the new age of streaming.

So unless any more of those PSAs get leaked online, now we have to wait for the movie to come out on Blu-ray. But we'll just need to have patience.
