With the tremendous box office performance and integration of three Spider-Man story arcs, Spider-Man: No Way Home has become one of the most iconic movies in the MCU. Now, the extended version of No Way Home will feature many previously unseen action scenes involving the three Spider-Mans, according to reports. Here are the specifics:
The re-release of Spider-Man: No Way Home –
No Way Home fulfilled fans’ wishes and fantasies of seeing the three Spider-Men on-screen simultaneously. Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland’s trio have only increased in popularity since then. Marvel has taken advantage of this excitement, releasing posters and BTS footage starring the three Spider-Man actors together. Now, the film is now being re-released in cinemas with a longer cut that includes extra sequences with the three Spideys, according to reports. Despite the fact that No Way Home already had a 148-minute runtime, it appears that there is still a lot that was trimmed from the final cut.
The new pre-visualization reel for Spider-Man: No Way Home:
Matt McClurg, Digital Domain’s pre-visualization supervisor, posted a Spider-Man: No Way Home reel to his YouTube account, showing several of the movie’s initial scenes. In one sequence, Holland, Maguire, and Garfield’s Spider-Men are about to enter a portal constructed by Ned in the science lab, which would transport them to the Statue of Liberty. It is not shown in the released film how they get to the destination. Another scene has two Spider-Men collaborating, with one using webs to spin the other around in a loop before releasing him at an opponent. A somewhat different view of the trio flying around the Statue of Liberty together is also included in the clip. This footage also shows the three protagonists swinging as Doctor Strange’s Machine de Kadavus, called the magic box, is being carried by Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.

The pre-visualization reel is nearly identical to what was presented in the final cut, however, there were a few minor modifications, as previously stated. This isn’t the first time a Spider-Man scene has been cut during its cinematic release. Extended versions of the Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock bridge duel, as well as the combat between Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, have been unveiled in behind-the-scenes films and additional VFX reels. Given that the planned re-release of No Way Home is supposed to feature an extra 15 minutes of content, it’s feasible that these pre-viz segments will make it into the expanded version.
The extended cut of Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in theaters on September 9.
