Spider-Man: No Way Home finally made its long-anticipated debut to the viewing public on December 17 following more than a year's worth of thrilling and almost unbelievable teases regarding the plot. Regardless of how many characters and storylines were teased before No Way Home's debut, it didn't stop fans from coming out in droves to see what Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had in store.

The third solo MCU Spider-Man movie finished its opening weekend with the second-highest domestic box office return in history, only trailing the 2019 behemoth that was Avengers: Endgame. Paying tribute to three generations of web-slinger stories from the 21st century, No Way Home is already seen as one of the MCU's biggest success stories in its 13 years of existence and counting.

As was teased mostly in the movie's second trailer, No Way Home took a trip to a newly renovated Statue of Liberty for its final battle, where Tom Holland's Spidey teamed up with both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield for their ultimate mission. Now, a new video showing some behind-the-scenes footage is teasing a bit of how that final battle came to fruition for the big screen.

No Way Home's Ending Comes to Light

The end of Spider-Man: No Way Home features some of the trilogy's most intense moments, starting off with the climactic fight between the Spider-Man trio and the Fearsome Five. Marvel and Sony utilized their Atlanta studio to great effect by creating multiple massive sets for the film's stars to use in their mission to deliver a truly epic Marvel Cinematic Universe experience.

Marvel has called Atlanta home for years with Pinewood Studios being used on nearly every MCU movie to some extent for more than a decade. Now, the background and settings of Spider-Man: No Way Home are brought fully to life as the team delivered some of the biggest action sequences and surprises in recent memory.

The studios behind this threequel had a tall task ahead of them by deciding to destroy an iconic American monument in its final battle, which comes shortly after Spider-Man: Far From Home did some major damage to the Tower Bridge in London. Combining this kind of excellence with the sets and the exciting story that was told alongside it, the MCU gave fans a wild ending to a one-of-a-kind movie.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters.
