Three days ago, we learned that Spider-Man No Way Home, directed by John Watts, had exceeded the 1.5 billion dollars generated in the world. An overwhelming success, due to the popularity of the superhero, but also to everything that surrounds the film.
Many theories were born before the release, and the presence, in the trailers, of antagonists from other films piqued the curiosity of many spectators. However, the character gallery could obviously have been more important according to Chris McKenna, who co-wrote the feature film. The latter was very recently interviewed by The Wrap, and he explained that the whole challenge was to allow the Peter Parker’s story to stay at the center of the plot.. Obviously, we advise you not to read everything what is under the spoil tags if you don’t want to know more than what was shown in the promotional campaign.
I don’t know if I have the permission to say it, but honestly, there were some important characters. But almost too important, because it is always a balancing act between telling a story well with all these awesome villains we wanted to see in the film, the classics, but also how to make a story with Peter Parker (…), so that it is not totally eclipsed?
Because in the end, it won’t be a good Spider-Man movie if we don’t tell a moving story for Peter Parker. We had all this wealth that we needed … This giant idea (with) all these great actors was great, but we also had to tell a story that was personal for our main character.
So it seems that other characters have been planned for a while, probably from Spider-verse. That being said, it’s not impossible that antagonists from the MCU would point their noses out, but we wouldn’t know, since McKenna declined to disclose who these characters were. Recall that in Spider-Man No Way Home, the spider-man crosses the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), the Lizard (Rhys Ifans), Electro (Jamie Foxx), and the Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) , but also his alter-egos, once again embodied by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire .
