Spider-Man: No Way Home exceeded expectations when it premiered in 2021. The threequel earned a massive box office haul while also delivering one of Marvel's most memorable moments when the trio of Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland's respective Spider-Man united against a bunch of Multiversal villains.
No Way Home's success was unprecedented due to the fact that it happened during the pandemic. As a result, Sony Pictures is set to continue the hype for the MCU threequel as it is confirmed to release an extended cut of the movie.
The upcoming re-release is dubbed the "More Fun Stuff Version," which is confirmed to include 11 minutes of additional footage. Marketing has been ramping up for the extended cut, and now, a brand new clip has been revealed online.
Spider-Man: No Way Home's Villains Take The Spotlight
Sony Pictures officially released a short new teaser for Spider-Man: No Way Home's theatrical re-release, showcasing a fresh look at a deleted scene involving the threequel's main villains.
The 15-second clip featured Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus, Willem Dafoe's Norman Osborn, Jamie Foxx's Electro, Thomas Hayden Church's Sandman, Marisa Tomei's Aunt May, and Tom Holland's Peter Parker inside an elevator before going to Happy's condominium.
The clip can be seen below:
Will No Way Home's Villains Receive More Screen Time?
After Sony Pictures released an extended cut trailer that didn't reveal any new footage, it seems that the studio is making up for that by slowly revealing more scenes that will be included. A teaser trailer already featured new scenes of Tom Holland's Peter Parker and Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and this latest clip further added to the anticipation surrounding the "More Fun Stuff Version" of the movie.
It is unknown if the theatrical re-release will give villains such as Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin more screen time other than this 15-second clip. It's possible that more scenes of Spider-Man's enemies will be featured to add more complexity to their story.
Given that Maguire's Spider-Man and Willem Dafoe's Norman Osborn didn't interact in the original cut, a scene between the two characters could end up in the re-release. Doing this would give the pair some sort of closure while also paying tribute to their rivalry in the first Spider-Man movie.
Another villain-centric scene that Sony can include could revolve around Alfred Molina's Otto Octavius. A scene showing Otto's realization that he could the three Spider-Men fight the villains in the Statue of Liberty would be an interesting addition.
Spider-Man: No Way Home's extended cut is set to premiere in theaters on Friday, September 2.
