SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Storyboards Reveal Returning Mysterio Once Killed Aunt May

Many fans were disappointed when Mysterio didn't return in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but some early storyboards reveal Quentin Beck once played a pivotal role in the movie...by murdering Spidey's Aunt May!

Spider-Man: No Way Home was released in 2021 to overwhelmingly positive reviews and record-breaking box office numbers. While the movie was quite clearly restricted by the pandemic (hence why Thomas Haden Church and Rhys Ifans only appeared through archival footage), it still managed to be downright spectacular. 

Still, we couldn't help but be disappointed that Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio wasn't the sixth member of that villainous team, especially as it would have finally brought the Sinister Six to the big screen. 

Heading into the threequel, the popular theory was that Quentin Beck really was from another Earth, with the villain faking his death before coming back to make Spider-Man's life hell. That obviously didn't happen, and it appears the Master of Illusions really is dead and gone after being defeated by the web-slinger. 

After storyboards recently confirmed The Vulture was eyed to return in Spider-Man: No Way Home, it's now been revealed that there was a draft of the movie which saw Mysterio responsible for Aunt May's death in place of the Green Goblin. 

"This version happened under an elevated train next to Peter’s school," explains concept artist Phil Langone in the posts below. "JJ Jameson is a TMZ-style street reporter. Part of the idea being explored was Spidey is one of the strongest superheroes, but he holds back because he doesn’t want to kill anyone."

"But what would it sort of look like if Spidey went berserker mode. Kind of never finished, but was fun to play with. There’s another half to this where Spidey wails on the fishbowl..."

We don't know how seriously this was considered, but it looks like Spider-Man: No ay Home's script went through a lot of different iterations before finally swinging into theaters. 

Do you think Mysterio should have returned in the movie?
