The moment of Aunt May’s death could have been an even bigger blow
Spider-Man: No Way Home It has become one of the favorite films of arachnid fans. It is not for nothing that it brings together the three film actors (Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland) in a single adventure and also represents the moment in which the last of them truly becomes Spiderman, we see on the screen this moment of loss, the there will mark him forever and make him the hero he was meant to be.
In this case it is the death of Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) and although it is impossible not to cry, if the original plans had been followed we could have burst into tears. As concept artist Phil Saunders revealed on his Instagram in an earlier version of the script, this death occurred while the woman was being transported in an ambulance (with burns and a severe blow to the head), leaving an unmasked Spiderman in pain, with Tears streaming down her face.
Spiderman’s saddest and most important moment
For better or worse, and unfortunately for the character, he must suffer a loss in order to truly be Spiderman. Generally, this was Uncle Ben telling him the mythical phrase of power and responsibility (although originally, in the first story, it was said only in the screenwriter’s voice, without any specific character being involved). Peter Parker must suffer this loss in order to understand the path he must take for the rest of his life.
Of course, this is a character with many years of experience and different versions of it, so this circumstance is not always the same. To quote one of them, for example we have Gwen Stacy, who in an alternate reality (Earth-65) becomes the spider heroine of her universe, but the death she has to overcome is that of her Peter Parker. It must be said that everything was a consequence of the young scientist’s development of a serum that turned him into a dangerous humanoid lizard.
