Spider-Man: No Way Home ‘The More Fun Stuff Version’ is reported to have both extended and additional scenes although there is no further information regarding the additional material being added into the film.
With the original theatrical cut running at nearly 2.5 hours, it’s also unknown how much longer the Spider-Man: No Way Home extended cut will be.

The film, which came out in December last year, is currently sitting at around US$1.89 billion (RM8.4 billion) at the global box office and with its extended cut set for theatrical release, the film is inching closer to hitting the US$2 billion (RM8.8 billion) mark.
This marks the third MCU film to get a major theatrical re-release following Avengers: Endgame in June 2019 and Spider-Man: Far from Home in August 2019.
And it’s also a third in terms of rereleases for Sony as it had Venom: Let There Be Carnage in January this year as well as the disappointing return of Morbius in early June.
