Get Tickets SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME: THE MORE FUN STUFF VERSION

It is hard to believe it has been nearly a year since SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME swung onto the big screen in December 2021, and racked up an amazing box office return of a little more than $1.9 billion worldwide, quickly making it not only one of the most successful movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but also of all time. And it’s even hard to believe that Tom Holland’s third solo outing as Peter Parker is returning to movie houses once again with SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME: THE MORE FUN STUFF VERSION, which is essentially an extended cut with deleted scenes and other goodies.

But, before you put on our Spidey suits and head over to your local AMC Theatre to watch the new version, starting September 2, why not get a refresher course on five of the movie’s most visually stunning moments. There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s get this show on the road!

Peter And MJ Swinging Through NYC

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME picks up right where the end credits sequence of its 2019 predecessor leaves off: with J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) playing a clip of a dying Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and telling the world that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is the man behind the mask. As a massive crowd forms around the no-longer secret superhero and his girlfriend, MJ (Zendaya), the couple flee in an attempt to find safety. And, while they eventually find refuge in Peter’s apartment, it’s not before they go on one hell of a tour through New York City — both in the sky and underground.

As soon as the Daily Bugle host yells out “Public enemy No. 1” the dramatic superhero music fades in favor of Talking Heads’ “I Zimbra,” as the couple try and figure out their next move. The song, like the scene, does a tremendous job of establishing the chaos that has now taken over the already overwhelming world of Spider-Man. From evading news helicopters in the sky to dodging trains in the subway tunnels, Peter and MJ have a whirlwind of a journey through the heart of the city before finally finding safety.

The Mirror Dimension

From a visual standpoint, there are few fights in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that look as cool as the encounter between Spider-Man and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) partway through SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME. Basically, after Strange attempts to send the various villains back to their respective universes, Spider-Man stops him by stealing the spell, only for the sorcerer to take him to the Mirror Dimension. However, things don’t go according to plan.

Following a fight that defies logic, reality and space by putting places like New York City and the Grand Canyon in the same place at the same time, Spider-Man uses his understanding of basic geometry to his advantage and catches his fellow Avenger in his own trap.

Spider-Man Vs. Green Goblin (Fight At Happy’s Apartment Building)

Tobey Maguire’s version of the Web-Slinger had an all-time great fight with Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) in Spider-Man back in 2002, but that epic battle pales in comparison to the first time the unhinged villain went toe-to-toe with Tom Holland’s Web-Head in SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME. In terms of visuals and emotion, the fight after Goblin reveals himself in Happy Hogan’s condo is up there with anything else in the MCU up to this point, and it’ll probably remain that way for some time.

This one-on-one affair looks less like something from a superhero movie and more like one of the fights you see in movies like THE RAID. Green Goblin powerbombing Spider-Man through multiple floors of a condo building is just such a brutal image, especially after Norman Osborn took like eight punches to the head and face while laughing the entire time.

Three Spider-Men Working Together

Near the tail end of SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME when Peter 1 (Tom Holland), Peter 2 (Tobey Maguire), and Peter 3 (Andrew Garfield) team up to “cure” the various villains before sending them back to their respective universes, the trio has a surprisingly difficult time getting on the same page. But that all changes after a brief huddle where the three Web-Slingers learn to work as a team opposed to three lone heroes, which results in something that looks like it’s right out of a comic book.

After swinging back into action, the three Spider-Men swing around the Statue of Liberty and its scaffolding, shoot their webs off each other’s strands, and quickly become an amazing team. It all leads to one of the most epic “Hero” moments in the entire MCU, when all three land on the top of the Statue of Liberty’s crown and perform their signature poses while Michael Giacchino’s epic score swells to a crescendo in the background. Seriously, it never gets old seeing these three work together.

The Multiverse Opens

Another stunning SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME scene comes in the final minutes of the movie when the multiverse opens up, giving countless other villains an opportunity to descend upon the world and bring on a lot of madness. Luckily, Doctor Strange arrives and holds off the multiverse of madness long enough for Peter 1 to cure the already present villains before the sorcerer sends them back to where they belong.

The way the Statue of Liberty looks with the purple tones of the infinite multiverse crashing down is a sight that soon won’t be forgotten, and really drives home the enormity of the dire situation. Every subsequent watch reveals additional shadowy figures waiting their turn to invade a new realm, which really adds another level to the already epic scene. What follows is one of the most emotional moments in the MCU, when Peter Parker decides the only way to protect everyone is to have Strange carry out the spell to have everyone forget his existence.

Each of these stunning scenes and others like them will be back on the big screen once again when SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME returns to AMC Theatres nationwide on September 2, 2022.
