On September 8, 2022 comes “Spider-Man: No Way Home – The More Fun Stuff Version” in German cinemas. This is a new cut of the mega-Marvel hit “Spider-Man: No Way Home“, in which additional scenes were inserted and some existing scenes were lengthened. This expressly includes additional material that has not even been released on DVD and Blu-ray before.

Also included among the bonus scenes of the “More Fun Stuff Version” is a brand new post-credits scene featuring the “Doctor Strange 2” trailer that originally ran after the trailer.
That end credits scene has already been leaked to the internet, so now we already know what’s shown in it. Of course we want to give you the chance to be surprised by the post-credit scene in the cinema. That’s why Spoiler alert here! In the following paragraphs you will find out what happens in it and why the finale of the film gets even more emotional impact as a result.
The new credits scene is a report by school reporter Betty Brant (Angourie Rice). Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) class is celebrating its graduation, so the amateur journalist has put together a video that summarizes the adventures of the students so far: from the trip to Washington DC in “Homecoming” to the temporary destruction of half the population Thanos in “Infinity War” to the trip to Europe in “Far From Home”.
Betty Brant’s report shows photos and videos of the young people’s school life. But there is absolutely no trace of Peter Parker. He can’t even be seen in the group photos of the class. The reason for this is of course the magic spell that Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) at the end of No Way Home. Peter Parker is thus completely erased from everyone’s memories.
We already saw in the original version of the film that MJ (Zendaya) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) no longer remember their longtime companion. But the new post-credits scene gives the audience another emotional punch after the credits roll. It’s like everything Peter has ever done has been erased from the face of the earth. His whole life now exists only in his own memories. He was apparently conjured up even from pictures and videos.
The scene not only provides an even more detailed insight into how Strange’s magic works, but also goes into more detail about the tragedy of Spider-Man’s fate.
