Spider-Man: No Way Home: The Script Was Reportedly Rewritten Several Times During Filming

MOVIE NEWS – Spider-Man: No Way Home had to be constantly rewritten, as it was constantly changing who exactly was still in it…



Tom Holland, who brings the character of Spider-Man to life in the Marvel Universe, recently revealed in an interview that the script for the film had to be constantly rewritten even during filming. According to the actor, it took a while to get all the actors signed up for the film – some of them didn’t even sign the contract until the cameras were rolling!

“Some people were trying to figure out whether they wanted to do it, and we needed all of them or none.”

Holland also revealed that the decision to make Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness required significant plot changes, which led to further confusion on set. “You could ask the director, ‘What happens in act three?'” said Holland, “And his response would be, ‘I’m still trying to figure it out.'”. This caused some “crazy” problems during the epic final battle; the actor continued.

“I kept stopping and being like, ‘I’m so sorry, I just don’t believe what I’m saying. We sat down, we went through it, and we came up with a new idea. When we pitched it to the writers, they rewrote it, and it works great.”

Some speculate that what also made the script challenging to complete was that the makers seriously toyed with the idea of bringing back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as alternate Spider-Men. The MCU’s current ‘multiverse’ would allow for this, and the concept would not have been alien to the new Spider-Man movie anyway, as the main villains from the previous episodes are introduced in precisely the same logic.

Many believe that the two former actors might actually appear as their iconic characters, although Holland continues to deny that such a thing would happen. As he puts it, “nobody believes me, but they won’t be in the film”. However, thanks to the suspicious editing of the trailers (along with various other pieces of evidence), it seems pretty clear to some that they will appear at some point, probably in the finale…

Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to premiere in the US on December 17, 2021.
