Spider-Man: No Way Home: Zendaya Wanted a Different Ending to the Film
Published on December 31st, 2021 | Updated on December 31st, 2021 | By FanFest
Fans were astounded by almost every aspect of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which defied expectations in so many ways.
Of course, a big help is having a slew of returning favorites to bring fan service on a previously unimaginable scale, but the film never lost sight of the emotional throughline.
Peter Parker, as played by Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been depicted as someone who frequently finds himself making errors as any teenager would. When you’re a superhero and an Avenger, though, the consequences are much more serious.
In an interview with Marvel, After the fabric of reality was restored by Doctor Strange, Zendaya said she would have preferred a more optimistic conclusion to No Way Home than the bittersweet ending we wound up receiving.
“I actually hate we’re in these interviews like, ‘This movie’s so fun!’. I cried throughout the whole movie. And the first thing I said when we finished was, ‘This is awfully sad’…. Because it’s very much just bitter, Like I’m not getting the sweet part. He’s lost everyone he loves. I’m sorry, I wanted [Peter and MJ] to go to college together. There’s going to be a lot of really upset little kids.”
The wrongs that occurred in Spider-Man 3 may be fixed when the fourth film comes out, but for now, the final scene of No Way Home delivered a powerful emotional punch. Peter may have saved the world yet again and guaranteed the safety of his family, but it came at a high personal price.
