The biggest aspect of Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: No Way Home was undoubtedly the teaming up of three generations of Spider-Man. Seeing Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland share the screen was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But even more than that, audiences got to see all of their villains take part in the action the same time.
From Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin, Alfred Molina's Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx's Electro, and more—fans got to see what they might be like after their fateful encounters with their Spider-Men. While Holland didn't have any of his rogue gallery show up, besides that large Mysterio-sized shadow looming over his existence, the other two came face-to-face with most of theirs.
However, there was one bad guy who many fans expected to see make an appearance, especially seeing as the film was just one antagonist away from having the Sinister Six. That would be none other than Paul Giamatti's Rhino.
His giant mech suit showed up at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and just as their brawl began, it ended before a punch could land. For years, fans have wanted to see what came after that. Does Andrew Garfield even know?
Andrew Garfield Acknowledges the Rhino in the Room
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Spider-Man: No Way Home star Andrew Garfield commented on the last villain his Spider-Man fought on screen before his triumphant return last year: The Rhino.
Garfield joked that what happened after those credits rolled "was so brutal" before admitting that he "[has] no idea."
"If I remember correctly, what happened after that, was not suitable... because it was so brutal [laughs]... I have no idea. That's where the script ended, and that's where our movie ended. So you get to choose your own adventure with that one. What would you have liked to have seen happen?"
Rhino's Brutal Ending
Andrew Garfield may be joking, but based on what his Peter Parker admitted in Spider-Man: No Way Home, a brutal takedown may be precisely what happened. After all, he stopped pulling his punches, and it seems like Rhino is as good of a target as any for that rage.
It really is a shame how Sony decided that, for some reason, ending the movie right before the Rhino fight occurred was a good idea. It seems like a universal opinion amongst audiences that it should have played out on screen.
No Way Home would have been the perfect opportunity to fix the mistake. Though, at the end of the day, there's probably not much lost; their adaptation doesn't really scream iconic.
