Spider-Man: No Way Home script clears up lingering MJ question

The Spider-Man The No Way Home film script has been made accessible to all to view in the online version (via Deadline(opens in new tab)). In the plethora of information found so far is a important MJ moment that was not evident in the final version.

As reported from User Tesgoul On Reddit(opens in a new tab), the post-memory wipe scene that takes place between Peter (Tom Holland) and MJ (Zendaya) in the cafe is a slightly less unclear on the screen.

On the screen Peter’s awkward conversation with his former girlfriend is cut off by the suggestion that MJ is experiencing “a flicker of deja vu on her face.” The final exchange is more precise with the camera focusing the camera on MJ while the actress is “watching Peter go… with a lingering sense of recognition?”

Naturally scripts aren’t easy-to-write – and they can be adjusted from the moment they are written until the day of filming. It appears, however, that, regardless of the plans being made for Tom Holland’s character’s future Doctor Strange’s ability to remind everyone that Peter Parker was Spider-Man may not be 100% successful.

This wasn’t the sole thing that didn’t make it from screen to script within one of the most successful films ever.

The screenwriter who co-wrote the script Chris McKenna told Yahoo(opens in a new page) that “big characters” were eliminated in the initial stage of writing. “We had to tell a story that felt like we were telling a personal story for our main character,” McKenna explained.

The next show on the schedule for Spidey will be Spider-Man: Freshman Year, an animated new series that will be available on Disney Plus. For more information on the Marvel adventures that are coming to the streaming service look up this guide on the upcoming Marvel TV series.
