On the occasion of the publication of the art book by Spider-Man: No Way HomeOver the last few weeks, we’ve been looking at a lot of concept art showing moments that didn’t make it into the film. Here’s another one, courtesy of veteran Marvel Studios artist Phil Saunders. The same artist who made MJ fly in Doctor Strange’s cape or Ned on the green goblin’s speeder armed with the villain’s pumpkin grenade
Now we get an illustration courtesy of Saunders via artstation.com that shows Peter Parker about to be stabbed by the Green Goblin during what appears to be an air battle, and we can also see MJ trying to give the villain the effective Inject formula to free Norman Osborn from the Green Goblin once and for all.
Things went a little differently Spider-Man: No Way Home, of course, but as Saunders explains, “In an earlier version of the script, the Green Goblin stabs Spidey just before MJ falls backwards and manages to stick the antidote needle in his throat. Using the dynamics of this composition to capture the drama of the moment was fantastic.”
It’s a spectacular work of art, and we can’t help but wish that sequence had made it to the final cut.
Norman ended up stabbing Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker in the final fight, while we know from behind-the-scenes footage that he was involved in a fight with the villain’s Goblin Glider. Eventually, the scene was cut in the editing room for an unknown reason.
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, for the first time in Spider-Man film history, the identity of our friendly neighborhood hero is revealed, causing his superhero duties to interfere with his normal life and putting everyone in danger. your loved ones.
