No Way Home’s “More Fun Stuff” STILL Didn’t Use The Best Deleted Scene

Spider-Man: No Way Home’s “More Fun Stuff” cut is certainly fun, but it’s still missing the deleted scene that would’ve demanded a return to theaters.

While Spider-Man: No Way Home’s re-release features around 12 minutes of new footage, the “The More Fun Stuff” version is still missing the one deleted scene that would have demanded an audience return en masse. Although Tom Holland’s Spider-Man got to meet and join forces with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s versions of the live-action Webslinger, Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker strangely didn’t receive much screen time with Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin. As such, “The More Fun Stuff Version” version should have brought back a confirmed deleted scene where the two characters meet face-to-face at the Statue of Liberty battle.


In The More Fun Stuff” version of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the majority of the new footage consists of jokes and fun moments left on the cutting room floor. For example, both Spider-Man’s investigation by the DODC and his time at school are expanded, and there’s also a new scene with Matthew Murdock (a.k.a Daredevil). There’s also some additional conversation and jokes between Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire’s versions of Peter Parker, and a new post-credits scene for No Way Home to replace the teaser for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

All in all, there’s nothing major in “The More Fun Stuff” cut that adds or provides more depth to No Way Home’s story. Although the added jokes are quite funny and will likely be appreciated by many Spider-Man fans, previous behind-the-scenes featurettes prove the new re-release could have reintegrated a cut sequence between Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man and Green Goblin where they would have fought on Osborn’s glider, giving them a direct exchange they did not have in either version of No Way Home.

A New Green Goblin Fight Would Have Made “More Fun Stuff” Perfect

While completing this fight sequence between Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe would have likely required some additional effects work, a new Green Goblin scene with the original Spider-Man fight could have been a major selling point for the re-release (and would have been well worth it). In both versions of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Men got to have reunion moments with all of their villains except for Maguire’s Peter and Green Goblin. Although the Goblin did stab “Peter-2” in the back while he was trying to save him from an enraged “Peter-1,” they never had any kind of direct interaction that this cut glider fight could have provided.

It makes sense that the fight sequence was likely cut to make the Green Goblin feel more like a villain for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man after the murder of Aunt May. However, the missing exchange between Maguire and Dafoe is one of Spider-Man: No Way Home’s few missed opportunities that “The More Fun Stuff” version could have corrected, making the re-release much bigger, exciting, and worthwhile than it actually is.
