The complete script for Spider-Man: No Way Home has been officially released online.
Written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, the full script for the recent Spider-Man sequel outlines all the action from one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. The script was released by Deadline as part of its Read the Screenplay series, and reveals what Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were originally called…
Tobey Maguire is referred to as “Raimi-Verse Peter” or “Raimi-Verse Spider-Man” throughout, while Andrew Garfield was “Webb-Verse Peter” or “Webb-Verse Spider-Man”.
Of course, in the movie, the Spider-Men come up with their own solution to differentiate themselves, with Tom Holland known as “Peter 1”, Tobey Maguire as “Peter 2”, and Andrew Garfield as “Peter 3”.

It’s certainly interesting that the No Way Home script so openly refers to the different versions of Spider-Man that would appear in the movie.
After all, Marvel is known for its tight security around sets and scripts, with some actors not even given access to the full script during shooting. At the very least, the script is titled “Serenity Now”, seemingly to keep the true movie unknown.
It’s certainly possible that nicknames or decoy names were used throughout the shooting scripts to keep things under wraps. But thankfully, the full script is a lot clearer, and it paints an impressive picture of what would eventually unfold on screen as the three big-screen Spider-Verses collide.
Although the multiverse crossover was originally intended to be a post-credit scene, the movie eventually evolved to bring “Raimi-Verse Spider-Man” and “Webb-Verse Spider-Man” into the action in a big way. Unfortunately, it looks as though it lost Mysterio in the process, but Andrew Garfield enjoyed returning so much, that he has since said he would love to play Spider-Man once again.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Streaming ITA stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, along with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their own versions of Spider-Man. They’re joined by Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jon Favreau.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Duel With Dr. Strange
Warning: This article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home!
Spider-Man: No Way Home Streaming may have almost included the return of Mysterio.
New concept art from the recent Spider-Man sequel depicts Jake Gyllenhaal’s supervillain facing off against none other than Doctor Strange.
And it’s a familiar scene, too. It looks as though Mysterio would have been present for the final fight at the Statue of Liberty, This impressive artwork from concept artist Andrew Reader shows that the return of the much-loved Spider-Man: Far From Home villain would have placed him alongside other iconic Marvel villains.
We already saw the return of Willem Dafoe as the Green Goblin, Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Rhys Ifans as The Lizard, and Thomas Hayden Church as Sandman.
And it begs the question – would this have ushered in our first Sinister Six team-up?
It’s unclear whether Mysterio would have played a major role in the movie, or whether this concept art was from a time when the multiverse mash-up was little more than a post-credit stinger. Of course, it’s also unclear whether this is the original Mysterio…
Killed off at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the villainous Quentin Beck claimed to be a hero from an alternate universe. But Peter Parker eventually rumbled his deception, revealing that he was actually a disgruntled Stark Industries employee from the main MCU universe. And he is no hero at all.
But wouldn’t it be ironic if the No Way Home version of Mysterio actually was from another dimension of the multiverse?Unfortunately, it looks as though Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio was eventually cut, so we’ll never know quite how involved he was. But with Spider-Man: No Way Home Streaming becoming Sony’s highest-grossing film of all time it looks as though it didn’t really matter either way.
But the villains weren’t the only iconic Spider-Man characters to return.
Both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield suited up once more for an incredible appearance in No Way Home. Garfield even admitted that he would play Spider-Man: No Way Hom streaming again.
Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, along with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their versions of Spider-Man. They’re joined by Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jon Favreau.
