Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige explained why they didn’t repeat villains during the Spider-Man movies in the MCU.
Much of the promotion and hype for Spider-Man: No Way Home It came hand in hand with the return of 5 of the villains that were part of the 2 previous Spider-Man franchises, starring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
In Homecoming and Far From Home, contemptuously, we had to Vulture and Mysterio as antagonists, “new” characters within the cinematography of Spider-man Y Kevin Feige explained why we hadn’t seen new versions of villains like Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus or Electro. On the one hand there was the need to show other villains within the wide arc of characters that Peter Parker faced in the comics, but also the idea of the multi-verse was premeditated from the start.

“When we had the opportunity to bring Spider-Man into the MCU with Homecoming, it was really (the idea) to explore two things that had never been explored before in the Spidey movies. One idea was to make him much younger, he’s in his early years of high school and he has to deal with what it’s like to be so young and have these powers, and really enjoy the high school environment. And the other thing was that it is established within the wider Marvel universe and that there are other heroes there. ” Feige said. “So for the first movies it was always: ‘How do we do things that have never been done before?’, express Feige in an extensive interview.
The appearance of the classic villains in No Way Home was a key piece to the potential of the narrative, which is sustained in large part by a majestic performance by Willem Dafoe.
