  • The new scenes showcase fun moments between the three Spider-Men played by Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield having a go at each other. 
  • Their interactions were a huge hit even in the original cut and it only makes sense that Marvel has added more of these light-hearted moments in the extended cut.
  • There are some extra scenes from the beginning of the film as we see Tom Holland’s Peter Parker dealing with high school life after his superhero identity is outed.

  • He features in interviews with Betty Brant and some of his school teachers and friends, as we get a deeper look at his secret identity fallout at high school.

New post-credits and Daredevil scene

The original theatrical version of Spider-Man: No Way Home featured a teaser trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, Marvel has replaced it in the extended version with a news broadcast from Betty Brant that recaps highlights from their high school. 

  • The only difference is Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is missing from all of these clips and pictures. This shows that Doctor Strange’s spell to erase Peter’s existence had worked.

  • There’s a new one-on-one interaction scene between Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Happy Hogan, played by Jon Favreau. In this new scene, Matt acts as a lawyer for Happy.

How to watch it

Dubbed “The More Fun Stuff Version” of the film, the extended cut was first released in theaters and on DVDs in mid-2022.

  • Since Spider-Man: No Way Home is distributed by Sony Pictures, the film as well as its extended version did not arrive on Disney+ right away, unlike other MCU films.

  • However, the extended cut is now available on Netflix in select countries such as Hong Kong, India, and Indonesia.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spider-Man: No Way Home was a true triumph for fans of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as the iconic web-slinging superhero. The film made $1.9 billion at the global box office.

  • What makes this film truly special is the way it brings together elements from previous Spider-Man franchises. It marked the first time we saw Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield return as their respective versions of Spider-Man and interact with one another.
  • But it’s not just the nostalgia factor that’s making this film a hit. “No Way Home” is a well-crafted film that stands on its own. It’s a movie that delivers on all fronts, providing action, humor, and heart in equal measure.
