SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Writer On How The Pandemic Impacted A Major Death Scene - SPOILERS

During a new interview, Spider-Man: No Way Home co-writer Chris McKenna revealed the original plan for a certain character's big death scene before COVID restrictions forced them to make a few changes.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was an emotional film on several levels, but one moment, in particular, left a lasting impact on audiences while ensuring there wasn't a dry eye in the house (major spoilers ahead).

We, of course, talking about the death of May Parker (Marisa Tomei) at the hand of the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe).

This scene plays out in the final act of the movie, with the murder of Peter's (Tom Holland) beloved aunt/mother figure sending the character to a very dark place. We know May's tragic demise was planned from the start, but co-writer Chris McKenna has now revealed that the location of the sequence did change.

McKenna, who co-wrote the script with frequent collaborator Erik Sommers, appeared on the GoldDerby podcast, and revealed that COVID-19 significantly altered the setting of the devastating scene.

"It was also tricky production-wise, because we had different ideas for where the scene could take place, but because of Covid [we couldn't]," he said. "We had one idea that maybe it was going to be inside an ambulance, and we had a whole version that was constructed around that, but that was not practical for shooting during Covid. That's the kind of thing that happens. So then we had to move the scene, physically, to another place while trying to keep all the other elements working, and we had to make adjustments. That's the kind of thing that happens in production."

We have no idea if this change in setting also resulted in any new dialogue being written for the characters, but it's hard to imagine the scene playing out too differently just because May never made it into the ambulance.

How did you guys feel about Peter's Aunt May being killed-off? Drop us a comment down below.
