No Way Home Writers Reveal How They Avoided Fan Service From Previous Movies

Spider-Man: There is no room for home It hit movie theaters last week, and ended up having the second highest opening weekend at the box office after Avengers: Endgame. Not only does the new Marvel movie break box office records, it’s currently “recently certified” on Rotten Tomatoes. The cast has been a huge draw for fans, especially considering there have been many rumors surrounding the film for over a year. Warning: spoilers ahead! Not only did Alfred Molina return to his role as Doc Ock spider man 2, but Jimmy Foxx is back from Electro the amazing spider man 2, Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin from 2002 Spider Man. But the biggest surprise was the appearance of former Spider-Man actors, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. During a recent interview with movie discussionWriters Chris McKenna and Eric Summers talked about balancing cameos and avoiding too much fan service.

Sommers replied “very cautiously” when asked how the actors’ films were divided. “Because, I mean, you want to give everyone what they deserve, and as a fan, you want to see these people as those characters and have fun with them. But at the end of the day, it’s a Spider-Man movie — you have to tell the Peter Parker story, and everything has to serve So there’s been a lot of painful decisions made, you know, we’d love to do this and that and ‘Oh, it wouldn’t be cool if these two bad guys could do that! It keeps things going. There were definitely a lot of what we call “little loved ones” – little moments and things you really love – but sometimes you have to let it go.”

“I mean, it’s a balancing act because we love those previous movies, the Sam Raimi and Marc Webb movies, and we want to honor them and make the fans happy,” Summers continues. “But you don’t want to just do slow fan service just because it’s going to make a mistake at some point. It’s a balancing act and at every point, again, you have to think about the story. So if you really want to hear this villain say the line he said in that movie The other, you can’t let that lead you in terms of finding a moment for it. If you’re just looking for it and spending all that time, you’ll end up writing some scenes that probably don’t even need to be in the movie. You just have to stay focused on telling Peter Parker’s story and then hopefully find opportunities for those moments there. We’ve been working with a lot of smart and talented people, and they’re reflecting on these moments over and over, making things up and trying to find those moments where we can include that kind of thing in a way that feels natural. We weren’t just doing it for her.”
