«Spiderman: No Way Home» has become one of the most successful films in history since its theatrical release less than a month ago, and the reason for that is obvious: the appearance of the spiderverse between Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
And now, with the film garnering enormous success and popularity, it has been revealed that there was a final scene between Andrew and Tobey that was cut. This scene was to be the final scene of the film, but it was discarded.
The actors took part in the third act of the film, but there were fleeting ideas to expand their roles. In fact, not only did they want them in the plot, but there were plans to have them in some post-credits scene. At least, that’s what screenwriters Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna said in an interview with Variety.
Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield appeared alongside Tom Holland to confront the villains of their universes. But the idea of his comeback was also thought for an exclusive scene after the credits. Speaking to Variety about all the twists and turns of «Spider-Man: No Way Home,» screenwriters Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna admitted that they considered including the two actors in the film’s post-credits.
“We even said, ‘Oh, we could make a [post-credits] label out of this one! We could make a label out of that! ‘”McKenna said. Sommers added: «Can we do a TV show with the two of us traveling in a van solving mysteries?»
Adding a few additional scenes with them in the credits, perhaps offering a glimpse of their lives in their proper universes, would have been a great way to cap off the movie. Instead, the actual credits had a scene ending the post-credits story for «Venom 2» and the trailer for «Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.»
In another part of the interview, McKenna and Sommers touched on the possibility of taking some scenes from «No Way Home» that were not in the final cut for some future films. They both seemed interested in the idea, as did the fans themselves. However, there is nothing in the works at this time.
After the first credits, Eddie Brock / Venom (Tom Hardy) appears in a bar in Mexico talking with the bartender, who explains some important details about the universe of the Avengers and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, tells him about Ironman , The Hulk, the Infinity Stones and Thanos’ Blip.
