China Tried To Censor Spider-Man: No Way Home. They Wanted Marvel To Edit The Film And Delete Its Ending

China probably did not like that the Statue of Liberty was at the centre of the film. If Marvel wanted to screen in China and make hundreds of millions of dollars, they would have to adjust the film's ending, which they refused to do.

The Chinese government allegedly banned the screening of Spider-Man: No Way Home because Marvel, Sony and Disney studios refused to edit / delete some pretty important scenes. China is said to have been disturbed by the Statue of Liberty in the film and wanted to remove it. If you've seen the movie, you know it would probably be impossible. The whole end of the film takes place around the Statue of Liberty, around which all three Spider-Men and their respective villains move and fight, so the object appears in a number of scenes.

 

Editing or deleting these scenes would be extremely expensive, not to mention it would change the meaning of the film. Doing so Marvel and Disney studios would be essentially succumbing to pressure from Chinese censors who reject the depictions freedoms in the film. In China Spider-Man: Far From Home earned $ 200 million and Avengers: Endgame earned $ 600 million. The Sony, Marvel and Disney studios lost a lot of money, but they stood their ground and did not give into the censor pressure.
