After more than a month in theaters, Spider-Man: No way home is still number one at the box office. And while it is rumored that he will return home in late February for digital download, today you can bring some of it home yourself. The whole script is online.
Deadline posted a link to the script, which you can get directly here. Of course, it was written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and while it is the front page says “Serenity Now,” don’t worry, it is Spider-Man: No way home. (both previous films in the series, Homecoming and Far from home, used Seinfeld-inspired working titles to keep production a secret: “Summer of George” and “George’s Fall.”) We have not yet read the entire script from start to finish, but we’ve moved a little bit to the parts that probably interest you. Spoilers are coming.
The scene in which Ned and MJ invoke Spider-Man’s Andrew Garfield is on page 119. He is referred to as “Webb-verse Peter” but also as Andrew Garfield in the descriptions. Page 124 is the place where the “Raimi-verse Peter” is introduced; he is described as Tobey Maguire, of course. Tom Holland is called “Peter” everywhere.
The great moment when the three Spider-Men finally team up is delivered with the appropriate excitement by the writers on page 150:
THREE SPIDER-MANS ROCK AS A TEAM! They land, one by one, on the crown of the Statue of Liberty. Just like-
Sandman, Electro, and Lizard get up directly across from them.
TRI SPIDER-MEN VS. THREE EVILS!
Also, the ending is simply beautiful. Here’s how to read it on page 181 (we are talking about a long scenario !:
EXT. NEW YORK ROOFTOP – A MOMENT LATER (NIGHT)
Spider-Man rolls over and rolls across the snowy roof in a BLUE-RED SUIT (new to him, but reminiscent of suits he’s already seen). Spider-Man jumps and …
EXT. ROCKEFELLER PLAZA – CONTINUOUS (NIGHT)
– He flies over Rockefeller’s Christmas tree with a newfound sense of freedom. Freed from the need to juggle two lives. Peter Parker is no more, but Spider-Man lives …
“Peter Parker is no more, but Spider-Man lives …” We love that.
Again, go to Deadline to download the full screenplay for one of the most successful films of all time. Spider-Man: No way home it’s in theaters now.
