Spider-Man: No Way Home fans have been left feeling some type of way over the weekend after discovering a CGI change was made to the blockbuster flick in post production.
The scene in question is Daredevil’s cameo in Aunt May’s kitchen, when lawyer Matt Murdock catches a brick that had been thrown through the window.
Speaking on production studio Corridor Crew's YouTube channel over the weekend, VFX artist Kelly Port - whose company Digital Domain worked on Spider-Man’s visual effects - revealed it was initially a snowglobe that was thrown through the window, leaving fans baffled.
So originally Daredevil caught a snow globe flying into May’s apartment, but they decided to CGI it into a brick later on. It’s crazy how casual Marvel are about changing stuff in post pic.twitter.com/ZoFCcMkcAM— Will (@WilliamD1123) April 16, 2022
Port said: “That was originally not a brick. It was a snowglobe. That’s one of those crazy decisions that came after the fact.”
Taking to Twitter, fans were quick to express their bewilderment, with one writing: “That’s crazy!” while another added: “What the… It’s so jarring when you look at their hands now.”
Another noted: “I thought the way they held it was weird, literally every time I’ve seen that clip.”
While one fan couldn’t help but question the scene’s glaring disregard for the laws of physics, tweeting: “How did it [the brick] come from that angle? I don’t understand physics, but aren’t they on the top floor?”
One disgruntled Marvel-head quipped: “Multiverse of Madness really need to come out so people stop over-analysing the hell out of this movie.”
They were, of course, referring to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, directed by Sam Raimi, which hits UK cinemas on 5 May.
Iconic Marvel director Raimi is perhaps best known for directing the Toby Maguire-fronted Spider-Man trilogy between 2002 and 2007.
He recently got fans hot under the collar when he told entertainment outlet Fandango that he'd not only love to continue telling Spider-Man’s story, but that he’d also love to work with OG Spidey Maguire again.
Raimi said: “I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible. I'd love to come back and tell another tale, especially with the great management they've got there.”
The director added: “I've come to realise after making Doctor Strange that anything is possible, really anything in the Marvel universe, any team-ups.”
However, Raimi confessed he didn't have a story in mind for a fourth instalment, or know if 'Marvel would be interested'.
"I don't know what their thoughts are about that. I haven't really pursued that. But it sounds beautiful," he said.
"Even if it wasn't a Spider-Man movie, I'd love to work with Tobey again, in a different role."
