The 2021 release of Spider-Man: No Way Home was met with extremely favourable reviews and record-breaking box office earnings. Although the epidemic undoubtedly limited the film (which is why Thomas Haden Church and Rhys Ifans only made an appearance through archive video), it nevertheless managed to be simply fantastic.
Although Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, would have served as the Sinister Six’s sixth member, we couldn’t help but be sad. This is especially true given that it would have finally brought the diabolical group to the big screen.
Before the threequel, the prevailing assumption was that Quentin Beck was actually from another planet, and that he had pretended to die before returning to torture Spider-Man. That certainly didn’t happen, and it seems the web-victory slinger’s over the Master of Illusions left him for dead and gone.
The Vulture was planned to reappear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, according to storyboards, but it has since been revealed that Mysterio was originally intended to kill Aunt May rather than the Green Goblin.
Concept designer Phil Langone tells what happened in this version in the postings below, “This version happened under an elevated railway adjacent to Peter’s school.” “JJ Jameson is a street reporter in the vein of TMZ. Spidey is one of the strongest superheroes, yet he pulls back because he doesn’t want to harm anyone, which was one of the concepts being explored.”
“But imagine if Spider-Man switched to berserker mode. Almost never completed, but enjoyable to play with. Spidey cries on the fishbowl in the second part of this.”
Although we are unsure of how seriously this was taken into consideration, it appears that Spider-Man: Far From Home’s script underwent several revisions before making its way to the big screen.
