What are the deleted NWH scenes about? The massive box office returns of Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as the merging of three Spider-Man trilogies, have made it one of the most important films in MCU’s history. Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland’s trio have only grown in popularity since the film’s December release when it confirmed fans’ hopes and dreams of seeing three Spider-Men on screen together.
As a result, Marvel has released promotional materials featuring the three Spider-Man actors together, including posters and behind-the-scenes videos. It’s even getting a re-release in theaters with an extended version that includes more scenes with the three Spiders.
Spider-Man: No Way Home’s 148-minute runtime doesn’t appear to have included everything that could have been in the film. There are a few sequences that didn’t make it into the final cut of Spider-Man: No Way Home that has been revealed in a new pre-visualization reel for the film.
This Spider-Man: No Way Home reel from Digital Domain pre-visualization chief Matt McClurg shows that some of the movie’s sequences were initially intended out.
There’s a shot of Ned’s Spider-Men, which includes Holland, Maguire, and Garfield, getting ready to enter a portal to the Statue of Liberty in Ned’s science lab. As this is not shown in the final cut, it fills in that void in the narrative.
Two Spider-Men work together to swing one another around in a circle before unleashing a devastating attack on an enemy. Additionally, the video shows a different angle of the 3 swaying around the Statue of Liberty.
The pre-viz video shows the three protagonists swinging while Tom Holland’s Peter Parker carries Doctor Strange’s Machine de Kadavus, aka the magic box, in his hands.
It wasn’t an easy task to bring together actors from three different Spider-Man films. We can tell this was meticulously planned from the beginning because the scenes that followed when Tom, Tobey, and Andrew all appeared on-screen together were nothing short of spectacular.
Even though the final cut differs slightly from the pre-visualization reel, it’s easy to see the similarities. For the theatrical release, this isn’t the only cut scene. Elongated versions of the Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock bridge fight and a fight between Tobey Maguire’s Green Goblin and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin can be seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home VFX reels and other behind-the-scenes videos.
Pre-viz sequences may be included in the upcoming No Way Home re-release, which is expected to include an additional 15 minutes of footage if they were actually filmed.
