‘Great’ Marvel characters were cut from Spider-Man: No Way Home’s script

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home!

Spider-Man: No Way Home originally included some “great” Marvel characters.

During an interview with The wrapping, No Way Home co-screenwriter Chris McKenna revealed that some great Marvel characters were removed from the script.

“I do not know if we are allowed to, honestly, but there were great grades,” he said. “But almost too big, because it always became a balancing act of how we tell not only a story with all these amazing villains that we know we want to bring into this film, the classics, but also how we get it to that still a Tom Holland / Peter Parker story, so he is not completely overshadowed? ”

McKenna stopped revealing what characters would have been in the film. But it sounds like it was a good idea to remove them. After all, Spider-Man: No Way Home does not exactly lack heroes and villains.

Starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, No Way brought home The Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), The Lizard (Rhys Ifans), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church ) back to the big screen.

In addition to an appearance from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), any additional Marvel character may have made the movie feel a lot more messy. It may even have shifted focus away from Peter Parker.

“Because at the end of the day, it’s not going to be a great Spider-Man movie if you do not tell an emotional Peter Parker story,” McKenna added. “We had these riches that we had to … This gigantic idea [with] all these amazing actors, but also we had to tell a story that felt like we were telling a personal story to our main character. “

The multiverse crossover in Spider-Man: No Way home featured some of Spider-Man’s greatest villains, as well as a long-rumored return for both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their own incarnations of the web-slinging superhero.

And while it was originally intended to be a little more than that a post-credit scene this complicated crossover proved to be a big hit with the fans that No Way Home became Sony’s highest-grossing film ever.

Spider-Man: No Way Home premiered on December 17, 2021.
