The film starring Tom Holland contains “more secrets than the Pentagon”, as the actor himself said. Also a lot of inside jokes that you may have missed. Here we collect them.
After months – or years? – of rumors and speculation, Spider-Man: No Way Home has hit theaters. Fans who have already seen her have left the theater excited, so we can say that she was worth the wait. As Tom Holland said in an interview with SensaCinemais a movie with more “secrets than the Pentagon” and also with many references and nods to the Spidey universe itself. Marvel is an expert in this and has accustomed us to pay attention to detail, but this time it has compelling reasons to fill the screen with ‘easter eggs’.
From inside jokes from other superhero movies to emotional details and of course, comic book connections that only true fans will understand. Jon Watts has done an outstanding job of paying homage to the franchise and fitting all the pieces of the vast Marvel Cinematic Universe together. Here we leave you with a list of references that you will find in Spider-Man: No Way Home and that finish rounding off the film.
As you can imagine, there are big SPOILERS ahead, so don’t continue reading if you haven’t seen Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Ned and Peter’s friendship bonded over ‘Star Wars’
We know, thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming, that Peter Parker is a fan of Star Wars. When good old Ned (Jacob Batalon) is visiting his house and discovers that his friend is Spider-Man himself, he drops the LEGO Death Star that the young man has built. The build ends up in the trash because of Dum-E, but that doesn’t stop there from being a very emotional reference.
At the end of the film, Peter has been erased from the memory of all his loved ones and assumes his role as a superhero alone. However, he does not forget those who once loved him and therefore leaves a small figure of Emperor Palpatine on his desk. It’s a memory of her friendship with Ned.
Peter Parker’s back pain comes from ‘Spider-Man 2’
When the three Peters are waiting for the villains at the Statue of Liberty, Tobey Maguire’s character complains that his back hurts. You may not have realized that it is a direct connection with Spider-Man 2. In the movie, Spidey plummets from the sky and lands on a car, causing the superhero to limp and complain about his back. It’s also an inside joke. In 2003, Maguire suffered a back injury while recording Seabiscuit which jeopardized his participation in the sequel.
The other villains you may not have recognized
The third installment of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man brings back five great villains from the franchise: Alfred Molina’s Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus, Willem Dafoe’s Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx’s Max Dillon/Electro, Thomas Haden Church’s Flint Marko/Sandman and Rhys Ifans’ Curt Connors/Lizard. But are not the only ones.
Towards the end of the film, when reality cracks, bright silhouettes appear belonging to visitors from other realities. They are several of the most popular villains in comics: Kraven ‘The Hunter’, Scorpion, Rhino and Black Cat. There is also the figure of a woman that many have related to Spider-Gwenthe Gwen Stacy version of Spider-Man.
Other Spider-Man Villains and Characters Appearing in ‘No Way Home’ That You May Not Have Realized
The arrival of the Hobgoblin?
Let’s mess things up a bit with this one. The film shows, in a very concrete way, that Ned has great skill with magic.. This discovery is followed by a dialogue in which Ned promises him that he will never become a villain who tries to kill him. What is this? The tape winks at the villain hobgoblinthe identity that Ned, Peter’s friend, adopts in the comics after becoming one of the bad guys.
At the end of No Way Home, Ned’s memory has been erased and he no longer remembers anything about his friend. It’s possible that the MCU is meaning that the two will face off in future sequels. Or, simply, it is a reference to the most faithful fans of Spider-Man. Who knows.
‘No Way Home’ picks up what they wanted to do in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’
The Andrew Garfield saga was cut short when Sony decided to shelve after the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The box office results were worse than expected, so the studio closed that stage to open it, some time later, with Tom Holland at the helm. If it had been shot, what would we have seen in the third installment of its saga? Well, a little what appears in No Way Home.
Peter is looped toward destruction following the death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). He completely relinquishes responsibility for his suit and any future superheroes. All Peter Parkers suffer a great loss in their lives and Garfield’s is in the process of accepting.
