However, there were some well-known characters who were planned for the film, but were then removed from the film. In an interview with Yahoo! became the two “No Way Home” authors Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers asked which figures did not fit in at the end:
“I don’t know if we’re allowed to, but there were some big figures. But almost too big because it became a balancing act as we tell the story. Not just with all of these great villains we wanted to bring back, the classic ones, but also how we tell a Tom Holland / Peter Parker story where he’s not completely overshadowed. Because at the end of the day it won’t be a great ‘Spider-Man’ movie if you don’t tell an emotional Peter Parker story. “
