Spider-Man: No Way Home is officially playing in theaters across the world, and it's already making a profound impact on the MCU narrative as the last Phase 4 film of 2021. The web-slinger's threequel earned 2021's biggest opening weekend box-office return by a wide margin, and it's clear that fans are quickly making plans for their second and third viewings to take in everything Iron Man's protégé has to offer in this massive adventure.
Ever since his introduction in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland's hero has had a deep connection to Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark, which continued into other projects after Tony's death in Avengers: Endgame. This even came into play in No Way Home as well, with Alfred Molina's Doctor Otto Octavius stealing Peter's Iron Spider armor and integrating it with his mechanical arms upon his arrival in the bridge scene.
With so many characters starring in No Way Home, and with this movie coming two and a half years after Tony's sacrifice in Endgame, fans are curious to see just how much of an impact he has on Peter's third solo outing. As it turns out, a recent Instagram post just revealed a deleted scene that would have explored the Iron Man legacy even further.
Morgan Stark's Role In Spider-Man: No Way Home
Warning - This article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
In a recent Instagram post, Avengers: Endgame star Lexi Rabe shared that she filmed material as Morgan Stark that was cut from the final edit of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: No Way Home.
While sharing images of herself alongside the No Way Home cast from the world premiere event in Los Angeles, California, Rabe stated that her part in the movie as Iron Man's daughter was cut:
"Ok here’s a teaser with all the photos. Will be posting them all soon. I absolutely love this movie- even though my part got cut- it was amazing to see everyone."
Rabe shared another caption in a pic of herself with MJ actress Zendaya, teasing that she hoped "to start filming again soon" for a future MCU project.
"Best night ever!! I don’t mind my part got cut. I missed my Marvel fam. This movie was amazing. Hope to start filming again soon!"
Fans Wait for More of Iron Man's Daughter
In 2019's Avengers: Endgame, child actress Lexi Rabe made her acting debut as Tony Stark and Pepper Potts' daughter Morgan, who had a profound impact on the movie through Tony's final run as an Avenger. Endgame remains the actress' only MCU appearance on her resume to date, although No Way Home didn't leave her completely out of the mix.
Upon entering Happy Hogan's apartment in the Spider-Man threequel, fans noticed some of Morgan Stark's drawings put on display, indicating that Jon Favreau's MCU mainstay is still deeply involved in the Stark family's lives. While he helped deliver a massive Stark check signed by Pepper Potts at the start of Spider-Man: Far From Home, this moment made it clear that Tony's best friend continues to look after Morgan after her dad's passing.
Rabe was previously seen in Atlanta around the time of No Way Home's production, which is likely when filming for her scene took place.
It's still a mystery what Morgan would have been up to in her deleted scene from No Way Home, although she likely has a special connection to Spider-Man in the same way her dad did. With her own quote about hoping to return as Morgan Stark, it seems to be only a matter of time until the heir to Tony Stark's legacy makes her return.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters worldwide.
