Morgan Stark actor Lexi Rabe revealed her role in Spider-Man: No Way Home was actually cut out of the film.
On Instagram, Rabe posted a reel showing her with various actors in the film, including Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Benedict Wong. In her caption, she wrote, “Best night ever!! I don’t mind my part got cut. I missed my Marvel fam. This movie was amazing. Hope to start filming again soon.” At this time, it’s unknown just what happened with Morgan in No Way Home. However, it’s possible the movie’s eventual home media release will feature her deleted scene, though that doesn’t necessarily mean the footage will be canon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Born following the events of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, Morgan Stark is the daughter of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. Tony, for his part, has served a key role in the MCU’s Spider-Man films. The hero was responsible for bringing Peter Parker/Spider-Man into the MCU to help fight Steve Rogers in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and later served as a mentor figure for the budding hero in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tony’s death in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame has loomed large over Peter, and the hero’s second film, 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, saw him dealing with the fallout from the loss of his mentor.
Rabe is an actor known for her roles in such films as 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2021’s Silk Road. She made her MCU debut in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. Rabe has not appeared in the MCU since that film, and it’s not clear when she’ll next play her character. An older version of Morgan Stark played by Katherine Langford was also initially set to appear in Endgame, though that scene was cut.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has proven a massive success for Marvel and Sony. So far, the movie has grossed more than $587 million worldwide despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. No Way Home has also proven a massive hit with fans and critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the movie’s critical score sits at 94 percent, while the audience score is at 99 percent. That critical score means No Way Home is the second-highest rated MCU movie and sits behind only 2018’s Black Panther.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is in theaters now. At this time, it’s not clear when Holland will next return as Spider-Man. However, Disney and Sony are actively pursuing future projects and Holland is said to be signed on for a fourth Spider-Man film.
