Spider-Man: No Way Home Writer Discusses Mysterio Deleted Scene


Spider-Man: No Coming Home Co-writer Chris McKenna spoke about the lack of Mysterio in the film.

The villain was originally an idea for the villain to appear – recently released movie concept art features a confrontation between him and Doctor Strange around the Statue of Liberty. Jake Gyllenhaal’s character may not have survived Spider-Man: Far From Home, but anything is possible with the multiverse.

“We worked on a few of these [movies] now and they will bring you amazing concept art. You’re like ‘wow, someone thought of that, and now it’s going to be a set,'” McKenna said in an interview with IGN Fan Party (via The Direct) when asked about concept art.

“So when we didn’t know what the movie was going to be, we were playing around with a lot of different ideas, you’re dealing with the multiverse and a lot of different ideas are thrown around. Brilliant artists are taking their own ideas or drawing inspiration from of the director, the producers and creating incredible works of art.”

“When it started to merge, when feelers were turned off and the actors were like, ‘Yeah, I’m in for that,’ then it became this overwhelming thing because you’re like, ‘Okay, that’s is reality now “. You can’t just swim in a million characters, you have to choose characters wisely and make sure they don’t overwhelm the story and Peter himself.”

And there are certainly plenty of villains in No Way Home – Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s versions of Spidey take on Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Electro (Jamie Foxx), Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church).

Next, we can see the web-slinger on screen in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part 1), which is due out on October 7th. In the meantime, fill your watchlist with our picks from the best superhero movies all time.
