NO WAY HOME Concept Art Reveals Incredibly Detailed Look at Green Goblin’s Final Costume
Spider-Man: No Way Home – The funniest version hits theaters next month, and some newly-emerged concept art offers a closer, revealing, and undeniably fascinating look at the Green Goblin costume.
Spider-Man: No Coming Home returns to theaters next month with an extended cut (which will include the missing deleted scenes from the Blu-ray), and now we have new concept art courtesy of Phil Saunders. The Marvel Studios vet was tasked with creating the final Green Goblin costume, and you can take a closer look at the models below.
“The concept has gone through a number of ideas, from stolen Stark Tech from a raided damage control container to salvaged parts from his own glider,” the artist explains the modifications made to the costume. “Ultimately, there just wasn’t enough screen time to show where the upgrades came from, so it’s left to the viewer’s imagination.”
Saunders added that “[Jon Watts] was looking for a mismatched collection of armor pieces that would reflect Osborne’s schizophrenic mania. I skewed the color palette towards purple to reinforce the classic comic book look.”
While we wish the Goblin had his mask on for these scenes, Willem Dafoe’s facial expressions were more than crazy enough to do the comic book villain justice. The actor delivered a powerful performance as the returning Norman Osborn, and it was a shame not to see him recognized at any of the major awards ceremonies.
“The goal was to take the iconic costume design from the Sam Raimi movie and update it just enough for the MCU without losing instant playback,” Saunders continued. “Besides that, we wanted to find a way to evoke the original comic book silhouette on top of that. My pitch was that May would give her clothes to cover up, including a purple hoodie, which would then be shredded in an explosion to create this final look.”
“A few strips of fabric used to wrap the damaged armor on the arms and legs, and voila: an MCU-style comic book costume. The goggles, [by the way]were supposed to have been stolen from Doc Ock.”
We don’t know if there are any deleted scenes from Green Goblin that will be part of the next extended version of Spider-Man: No Coming Home, but more Dafoe wouldn’t be a bad thing. It’s unclear if the scenes Saunders is referring to were actually filmed, but if so, fingers crossed they make it happen!
