Marvel fans are eagerly looking forward to the next instalment. And Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home will end the year 2021, ideally with its spectacular performance. Following the events of Far From Home, when Mysterio reveals the true identity of Spider-Man and turns everything over, the movie follows our hero as he tries to deal with the chaos spreading through his entire life. As more considerable dangers loom over, Peter Parker will have to stand against the likes of Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin. And all of this while the Multiverse is splitting open.
The upcoming movie is packed to the brim with action and emotion. While trying to save face from the unexpected revelation, Parker will also fight against an army of bad guys like Jamie Foxx’s Electro and many more. Holland’s hero seems like he will have a lot on his plate.
It is evident that with so many things fit into one movie, the editors will have to make room. Hence, a lot of scenes get placed in the deleted file. For instance, Shang-Chi’ ‘s special features showed an alternate scenario that saw the death of Razorfist. But the villain Razorfist ended up surviving the final cut of the movie. Indeed, fans have no idea what scenes could end up being cut out from the final version of No Way Home. However, to help us out, the film’s star himself has revealed the very first deleted scene.
Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Tom Holland was recently interviewed on The Graham Norton Show. And during the conversation, the star opened up about the role that his brother Harry Holland had in the film. This aligns perfectly with a moment seen a few months ago via leaked set photos.
The scene showed Harry Holland as a mugger, as Spider-Man was webbing him up. Tom elaborated that this casual inclusion was part of an inside joke between them. And that with this prank sort of a role, he meant to show his brother how very uncomfortable it can be to hang upside down all day. The Spider-Man reflected light-heartedly on their drive home that day after the shoot. He said that his brother Harry admitted that the event “was brutal”.
“So we’re driving home that day… and he’s like ‘mate, you can complain as much as you want. That was brutal.'”
Tom Holland only recently came around to watching the movie’s final cut. And exculpated as they come, Holland remarked that “they’ve cut the scene.” The actor also believes that his brother has no knowledge of his scene seeing the cutting room floor.
“But the icing on the cake, and I don’t think he actually knows this, we saw the film the other day, and they’ve cut the scene [laughs]. It’s not in the film.”
Although, on an upsetting conclusive note, Tom Holland also revealed that his brother “was just really excited about being in a Spider-Man movie:”
“But he said to me… ‘you know, mate, it was really tough, but I was just really excited about being in a Spider-Man movie. Sucks to be you bro [laughs].”
The fact that a scene involving Tom Holland’s brother was deleted from the final movie comes as intriguing news. Earlier this year, details about the particular scene mentioned above saw the light of the day. Rumours said that the scene showed Tom’s run-in with his brother, Harry Holland. According to some reliable sources, we know that the scene would have played out in this way. Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man stops a mugger. Harry Holland, Tom’s brother, plays the mugger. Following the capture, the wall-crawler then webs up the criminal. And right then, a nearby Mysterio supporter splashes him with green paint.
Ultimately, the scene would lead to Spider-Man flipping his suit inside out. Thus revealing the stunning black and gold outfit that audiences see throughout promotional material. Now the question that arises is this. Without the scenario, how will the movie explain the costume change?
The film must have a different explanation or a possible scenario in store from the beginning. However, it is disheartening to hear that Harry did not make it to the project. As Tom Holland discussed, his brother was excited to be a part of a Spider-Man movie. So obviously, he will be agitated to know the opposite. But this scene will see a significant place in the official deleted scenes as soon as the movie is released on home media, especially now because it is mentioned in a couple of interviews.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theatres worldwide on December 17. So the wait is simply a couple of weeks long.
