Marvel Studios released new footage from the cut scenes of Spider-Man: No Way Home. The video offers an alternate look at the fight scene between Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Jamie Foxx’s Electro as the two square up in the aftermath of Doctor Strange’s spell gone wrong.
Sony’s Spider-Man Universe has built up an extensive record of Spider-Men and corresponding villains. With trilogies and sequels dotting the landscape of Spidey movies, No Way Home was sure to bring in all the glorious villains from the multiverse in one epic battle.
Marvel Releases New Spider-Man: No Way Home Footage
Even though fans got a dream union of Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland’s Spider-Men in one frame, not all their moments together made it to the final cut. The same has been the case with the battle scenes from the third installment, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
In a recently released video, a never seen footage was revealed by Marvel Studios that featured an alternate version of the initial fight between Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Spider-Man. The scene that takes place in a forest land scattered with electric lines and poles, shows Electro taking on a giant form as a glowing golden frame and Spider-Man fighting him in his black-and-gold suit alongside Sandman.
Electro’s Future in the MCU
Jamie Foxx’s cinematic portrayal of the electric villain brought newfound fame to the otherwise low-grade, disliked, and unpopular Marvel comics Spider-Man villain. First appearing in Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Electro caught some attention with the aid of a good script and incredible casting.
With Sony’s Spider-Man Universe building, and with new projects like Venom, Morbius, Madame Web, Kraven the Hunter, and El Muerto, it would not have been a stretch to ask for a solo Electro film or series.
However, by the end of No Way Home, Electro had been stripped of his powers and sent back to his multiversal timeline to an awaiting unknown fate. With concepts like variants and multiversal overlaps now frequent, it wouldn’t be a surprise if, by some miracle, we find a super-villain team-up of Morbius, Venom, Vulture, and Electro. That really would be something to behold.
The extended cut for No Way Home will arrive in theaters on September 2.
