SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME VFX Supervisor Reveals Cut Moments From Standout Mysterio Sequence - SPOILERS

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME VFX Supervisor Reveals Cut Moments From Standout Mysterio Sequence - <font color=red>SPOILERS</font>

In a new interview, Spider-Man: Far From Home VFX Supervisor Alexis Wajsbrot has revealed some moments that were cut from the movie's standout sequence, and what fans should look out for on a rewatch...

Spider-Man: Far From Home features arguably one of the best sequences in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe's history when Mysterio uses his "illusion" powers to take Peter Parker on a mind-bending trip through a number of hellscapes, including a graveyard where Iron Man's corpse pulls itself up from the dirt below. 

Now, Framestore visual effects supervisor Alexis Wajsbrot has shed some light on creating that sequence, and reveals that, "There were some crazy ideas we had proposed."

"At one point, for instance, there was a fight where the cape of Mysterio was creating a monster attacking Spider-Man, who was running on a chess board and there was even a piano. There really were some some crazy ideas that, thankfully, didn’t stick, because I’m not sure we would have had time to be able to do them!"

Another scrapped sequence included masks at many different scales and a massive spider in a spiderweb attacking the web-slinger. "We brought that 75% to completion, but it was dropped," he says.
Apparently, Framestore's biggest priority was making sure the illusion sequence was different to Doctor Strange's trip through the Mutiverse, and Wajsbrot revealed one moment where fans should look a little closer. "[There] are giant statues of the fallen superheroes – Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow and Vision. You probably have to press pause to see all the statues! But we did spend quite a bit of time on them. Only one statue is left standing and that is of Mysterio."

some spoiler-filled stills from this sequence!

Back in his homemade suit, Peter Parker swings away from Mysterio in the illusion he's created, and that actually means that each of the wall-crawler's MCU costumes were included in this sequel.

Looking like a comic book panel brought to life, Mysterio pursues the wall-crawler through a twisted version of his high school, and it's fair to say that this was a spectacular way to kick things off.

Multiple Mysterios pursue Spidey, and the amazing next shot in this sequence saw him trapped within the villain's helmet. As visuals go in the MCU, this was a definite standout. 

After punching through Mysterio's helmet, the wall-crawler plummets to the floor below, but is, of course, just in the warehouse where the villain managed to lure him to. The drones are creating the illusion.

Here, we see how the "B.A.R.F." technology Quentin Beck helped Tony Stark create is able to completely change the wall-crawler's surroundings and make him see things that aren't really there.



Here, we get a before and after look at how the entirely CG sequence was created, and it's astonishing to think that everything we saw on screen was brought to life solely with visual effects. 

At the top of the Eiffel Tower, Mysterio manages to convince Spider-Man that he's kidnapped MJ, but it's all part of his plan to make the web-slinger reveal who else knows about his dastardly plan.


The Multiverse sequence in Doctor Strange was pretty trippy, but this one might just have it beat. We'll have more details for you tomorrow about moments that were removed from the illusion.



None of us expected to see Iron Man rise from the grave so soon, right? This is a truly horrifying piece of imagery, and one Mysterio uses to really mess with the wall-crawler's head.
