  • The majority of the film's setting is Europe, Tom Holland is the only actor from the continent, being British. The rest of the actors are from America, with the exception of Colbie Smulders being Canadian.
  • Samuel L. Jackson and Jon Favreau appeared for the first time in Iron Man (2008), the first movie of Phase 1, and now they appeared in the last movie of Phase 3.
  • This is the first Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be specially formatted for IMAX 1.90:1, unlike its first film, Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), which was presented in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio throughout, in IMAX.

  • This is the second film that Marisa Tomei and Samuel L. Jackson have appeared in together, the first one being Avengers: Endgame (2019), although they have worked with some of the same people in rapid succession before. Jackson appeared in Goodfellas (1990) with Joe Pesci, who subsequently appeared in My Cousin Vinny (1992) with Tomei. Tomei then appeared in Chaplin (1992) (with Robert Downey Jr.) for director Richard Attenborough, who soon after appeared with Jackson in Jurassic Park (1993).
  • There are mid-credit and post-credit scenes.
  • As is common in MCU films, a clip prominently shown in multiple trailers is entirely absent from the finished movie. In this case, a scene showing Spider-Man defeating a gang of bad guys in a restaurant (while wearing his nanotech Iron Spider suit first seen in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)) before departing on his school trip to Europe is not shown in the final version of the film (though it is briefly mentioned by May). This scene is present in the extended cut of the movie.
  • As was the case in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and three of the four "Avengers" movies (as well as all three "Iron Man" movies), Audi vehicles are prominently featured throughout as part of a broad-ranging product placement deal between Audi and Marvel. In this movie, set five years in the future, most of the vehicles shown are Audi e-tron SUVs, its first all-electric commercially sold model introduced in 2019 and intended as the first of many future Audi EVs. (Tony Stark drove a concept-car EV version of Audi's R8 sports car in Iron Man 3 (2013), but it was never produced commercially.)
  • In this film the one who hates spiderman aka J. Johan Jameson is bald in this film, when in doubt back in the Tobey McGuire movies J. Johan Jameson had hair just like the cartoon series of the animated spiderman.
  • The license plate on the car driven by Fury and Maria Hill is MTU83779, which references Marvel Team Up issue 83 from July 1979, called "Spider-Man and Nick Fury".
  • The first Spider-Man film where the Sony Columbia Pictures logo has its traditional music instead of a musical score over it.
  • A wrestling poster featuring Crusher Hogan can be seen backstage at the charity fundraiser. Crusher Hogan was the wrestler that a masked Peter Parker got in the ring with in Spider-Man's first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15.
  • This is the first Marvel-Avengers crossover movie without a cameo by Stan Lee, co-creator of the MCU.
  • When Mysterio and Peter Parker are having a drink, the song playing in the background is "A Town Called Malice" by The Jam. This song is also in "Billy Elliott", a musical that Tom Holland made his debut as the title character in 2008.
  • The song on the soundtrack 'A Message to You, Rudy' also features prominently in another Jon Favreau film, Chef (2014).
  • Angourie Rice (Betty) and Jacob Batalon (Ned) also starred together in Every Day (2018).
  • Jake Gyllenhaal is almost never seen wearing anything other than his full "superhero" suit throughout. It was actually suggested to him he'd wear something else for certain scenes, but according to him, he genuinely liked wearing that suit so much he refused to wear anything else. However, a keen eye can see Gyllenhaal in character spying on Peter Parker in street clothes just before Peter purchases the Black Dahlia necklace before Hydroman attacks.
  • When Peter Parker and his classmates are picked up at the airport, it depicts it being Newark Airport in New Jersey, USA, with the New York skyline in the background. In actual fact this scene was filmed at Stansted Airport in Stansted, Essex, UK. In order for it to look American, the vehicles were turned around by the entrance to look as though they were driving on the right rather than the left and the UK buses had their liveries changed too.
  • Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds) and Angourie Rice (Betty Brant) were in Every Day (2018) together.
  • Ned claims Peter has a perfume allergy to try to get Peter to sit with MJ on the plane. J.B. Smoove, who plays one of the school chaperones, worked as a perfume designer before becoming an actor.
  • One of the only Spider-Man movies where the theme of the animated series from 1967 (full or partial) is not heard.
  • When the class is on the way to Prague through the Alps, a song named "Slnko" (meaning Sun) from 1973 can be heard. The song is not in Czech language as one would assume, but in Slovak. It is quite unprecedented for music from Slovakia to be featured in a movie of this scale and the singer Marcela Laiferová commented that she was surprised her song was used. She also pointed out that, if she could have, she would have recommended one of her other songs, ones with more story.
  • This film takes place 8 months after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019).
  • The concept of May Parker getting into a relationship with Happy Hogan an Iron Man character in the film, is a slight nod to the comics, where in the comics May at one time dated Tony Stark's butler Edwin Jarvis.
  • In the comics Dimitri Smerdyakov was the alias of the Chameleon who specialized in masquerading and impersonating other people.
  • After the release of this film the Sony/Marvel partnership has concluded, meaning that neither company can make any further references to the other's characters in future films.
  • There is yet another car license plate, near the end of the film, that encodes Spider-Man history. The plate reads "AMF 1562" and suggests the comic book title "Amazing Fantasy," specifically Amazing Fantasy #15, from August of 1962, which features the debut of Spider-Man.
  • The fight scene against the fire elemental wasn't filmed in Prague; it was filmed in Liberec, a city 100 kilometres north of Prague.
  • When Peter and Beck are in a pub, the music in the background is London Calling by The Clash. Tom Holland, who plays Peter, did a stint on West End as Billy Elliott. In the original film, London Calling is an iconic song on the soundtrack.
  • Both Jake Gyllenhaal and his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal have appeared in a major superhero franchise. Maggie took over for Katie Holmes (Batman Begins (2005)) as Bruce Wayne's love interest Rachel Dawes in The Dark Knight (2008).
  • When Peter is trying to get his sunglasses back from Flash on the bus and slaps him and knocks him out, this is most likely a reference to Spider-Man issue #8 where Peter Parker and Flash Thompson had an after-school boxing match. Peter accidentally knocks out Flash with a flick of his wrist because Flash is distracted by the appearance of the Living Brain, but Peter is able to spin it to make people think that Flash is actually Spider-Man.
  • The Dutch village that Peter wakes up in is called 'Broek op Langedijk', which in ancient Dutch means a low piece of land in a marsh-like area, situated next to a long dike. It is a genuine town in the Netherlands, known for its historic architecture; however, the scenes at the marketplace and the tulip field in the movie were all shot in the Czech Republic during the Prague shoot (the actors with speaking lines are all Dutch though; the bare-chested one is Jeroen van Koningsbrugge, a famous Dutch comedian). Despite not really appearing in the movie, the tourist board of Broek was happy with the reference, since they immediately noted a rise in interest from American tourists after the film's premiere, and they even considered creating a Spider-Man-themed attraction. Lesser known fact: The so-called "Dutch/reverse auction" has its origins in this village. It was practiced in its agricultural auction house the "Broeker Veiling".
  • Peter wakes up in the Netherlands covered by an orange shirt. This is a genuine football shirt as issued by the KNVB (the Royal Dutch Football Association) and used by the national football team. Since Peter's cell mates are all wearing supporters' attire and colors, it is heavily implied that they attended a football match, got intoxicated and were all arrested for drunk and disorderly behavior.
  • When in the crown jewels vault, Ned corrects Happy when Happy mistakenly refers to the halberd Ned is holding as a spear. While on the plane earlier to Europe, Ned's avatar in the Beast Slayer game wields a halberd.
  • Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) confirms in the beginning that she was also one of the victims of Thanos' "snap" in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) (although in the movie, everyone refers to it as "the blip"). However, before the release of Avengers: Endgame (2019), the Russo brothers had indicated that aunt May was among the survivors. Whether this was intentional misdirection or a change of plans has not been reported.
  • Although it is not stated explicitly, the fact that MJ (Zendaya) and Ned (Jacob Batalon) still seem to be the same age as Peter (Tom Holland) (and refer to Brad (Remy Hii) as being 5 years older now) all but confirms that they were also killed during Thanos' "snap" in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and revived in Avengers: Endgame (2019).
  • The first Spider-Man film to gross over $1 billion worldwide.
  • It was announced in Aug. 2019 that Marvel Studios will no longer produce Spider-Man films because negotiations fell through between Disney and Sony. That left the future of the Tom Holland films unsure, until a new deal has been finalized.
  • "Spider-Man: Far From Home" opens in the town of Ixtenco, Mexico. Ixtenco is located in the state of Tlaxcala and was originally settled by the Otomi people.
  • Director Jon Watts says of this film, "We were always looking for a way to deal with some very emotional themes while remaining true to the tone we set in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)."
  • Peter says that MJ's favorite flower is a black dahlia "because of the murder." He's referring to one of Los Angeles' most famous unsolved crimes from 1947, the murder of Elizabeth Short.
  • Marisa Tomei, who plays Peter's aunt May, appeared in a special episode of "All in the Family" with Woody Harrelson, Jamie Foxx, and Wanda Sykes that was recorded in front of a live studio audience and aired on May 22, 2019.
  • Jon Favreau, who plays Happy, is a multi-talented actor and filmmaker. He wrote, directed, produced, and starred in the 2014 movie "Chef." It won the Tribeca Audience Award in the narrative film category.
  • Peter is wearing a t-shirt depicting a math problem. If the triangle shown is a right triangle, the value of x can be found by calculating the square root of the sum of the squares of the other two sides. It's an example of the Pythagorean Theorem.
  • Peter's suitcase has the initials "BFP" on it. It's likely that Peter is using his late uncle's suitcase, but Uncle Ben Parker's middle name has never been revealed.
  • Zendaya was surrounded by the arts at an early age. Growing up, she spent a lot of time at a theater where her mother worked.
  • One of the choices for Peter's in flight entertainment is called "Hunting Hydra." The name might allude to the large multi-headed sea serpent creature from Greek mythology. According to the legend, if one of the Hydra's heads was cut off, two more would grow back in its place. Or it's more likely a reference to the MCU villains Hydra.
  • The flight from New York to Venice is over four thousand miles and takes around nine hours. The airport in Venice is named after the famed explorer Marco Polo.
  • The students from Midtown High School arrive at the Hotel DeMatteis in Venice. This may be a nod to J.M. DeMatteis, who wrote many of Spider-Man's most famous comic book stories, including "Kraven's Last Hunt."
  • The first stop on Midtown High School's trip to Europe is the famous Piazza San Marco or St. Mark's Square. The Byzantine-style basilica can be seen behind Betty and Ned as they pose for the caricature artist.
  • The glassmaking industry in Venice became concentrated on the nearby island of Murano in the 13th century. By the 16th century, Venetians were very skilled in making clear glass or "cristallo," and a white glass called "lattimo" meant to look like porcelain.
  • The city of Venice is spread across 118 islands with more than 400 bridges connecting them. Between 26 and 30 million people visit the city each year.
  • One of Tom Holland's favorite action scenes takes place in Venice when the Water Elemental attacks. Peter runs across a series of poles where some boats are docked. Holland regrets not following the stunt coordinator's advice to wear shin guards.
  • The stone arch bridge that Peter lands on is the Rialto Bridge. It was built at the end of the 16th century and is the oldest bridge crossing on the Grand Canal.
  • The mask that Peter wears when trying to help stop the Water Elemental is similar to one that would be worn at the Venice Carnival. Carnival is a Catholic festival that occurs before Lent. The one held in Venice is one of the oldest Carnivals in the world.
  • Marisa Tomei played Mona Lisa Vito in "My Cousin Vinny," a role for which she received the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. She has also received Academy Award nominations for her work in "The Wrestler" and "In the Bedroom."
  • Zoha Rahman plays Zoha, one of Peter's classmates on the trip. "Forbes" reports that Rahman is writing her own movie about a South Asian Muslim superhero.
  • One of Samuel L. Jackson's most well-known roles is that of Jules Winnfield in "Pulp Fiction," directed by Quentin Tarantino. Jackson has appeared in many of Tarantino's films including "Jackie Brown," "Django Unchained," and "The Hateful Eight."
  • Reflecting upon the popularity of superhero stories, Samuel L. Jackson says that the movies are a chance for audiences "to feel like they belong in this world."
  • When Peter meets Beck, Beck explains that Peter is in Earth-616, but that Beck is from Earth-833. Comic book readers may recognize that Earth-616 is the traditional designation for the main Marvel universe. Earth-833 refers to the universe in which Spider-UK serves as a member of the Captain Britain Corps.
  • Cobie Smulders, who plays Maria Hill, has also appeared in several theater productions. On Broadway, she starred with Kevin Kline in "Present Laughter."
  • The Elemental creatures in this film are based on the classical elements: earth, air, water, and fire. When it comes to chemical elements however, there are 118 known elements, ranging from actinium to zirconium.
  • Mr. Harrington is played by Martin Starr. One of Starr's early roles was on the critically-acclaimed television show "Freaks and Geeks." Currently, Starr plays Bertram Gilfoyle on the HBO show "Silicon Valley."
  • E.D.I.T.H. is voiced by Dawn Michelle King, the first assistant editor on both "Far From Home" and Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).
  • The grown up Brad Davis is played by Remy Hii. Hii can also be seen as Alistair Cheng in the film "Crazy Rich Asians."
  • Flash Thompson is played by Tony Revolori. One of his most memorable roles was as Zero in "The Grand Budapest Hotel," directed by Wes Anderson.
  • Tom Holland's Hollywood debut was in "The Impossible" with Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts. The National Board of Review named him Breakthrough Actor of the Year for the role.
  • Mysterio's "fishbowl" helmet is inspired by illustrations from classic Spider-Man comic books. However, when creating the look of his suit, the costume designers looked to Iron Man, Vision, Doctor Strange, and Thor.
  • Peter sends his classmates to an opera at the State Opera. When the building first opened on January 5, 1888 with a performance of "The Mastersingers of Nürnberg", it was known as the German Theatre.
  • The Ferris wheel scenes were filmed in the city of Liberec, Czech Republic. Liberec is a little over an hour north of Prague in the Jizera Mountains.
  • Tom Holland enjoyed the variety of costumes that Spider-Man gets to wear in this film. He likes them all so much that he can't name a favorite, saying, "Each is a work of art."
  • Angourie Rice is from Australia. She played Holly March, the daughter of Ryan Gosling's character in "The Nice Guys," when she was 15 years old.
  • Tom Holland appeared in "The Current War," a drama about Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse, with Benedict Cumberbatch. The film premiered in 2017 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
  • Though this is only the second of the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies, Holland also portrayed the web-slinging superhero in Captain America: Civil War (2016), "Avengers: Infinity War," and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
  • When discussing Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, producer Amy Pascal says, "As much as we talked about Mysterio in a practical way - like how his powers would work in the movie - when Jake got involved, he brought a new level of humanity, unpredictability, and humor to the character."
  • Unrelated to the Night Monkey, Jake Gyllenhaal produced and starred in the movie "Nightcrawler." The film received many nominations, including winning an Independent Spirit Award.
  • In "The Greatest Showman," a musical loosely based on the life of P.T. Barnum, Zendaya plays a trapeze artist who falls in love with Barnum's business partner Phillip Carlyle, played by Zac Efron. Like Zendaya, Efron also jump-started his career on the Disney Channel, starring in "High School Musical."
  • Zendaya is Meechee in the animated movie "Smallfoot," which also stars Channing Tatum and James Corden. It is about Yeti who must prove that humans exist.
  • MJ and Peter have a heart-to-heart on the Charles Bridge in Prague. Charles IV laid the foundation stone on July 9th, 1357 at 5:31 am. This date and time were chosen because they formed a palindrome: 1 3 5 7 (year) 9 (day) 7 (month) 5 3 1 (time). Construction was overseen by Petr Parler, though the bridge wasn't completed until after his death.
  • Zendaya starred with Bella Thorne on the Disney Channel show "Shake It Up." The series followed two best friends pursuing their dreams of becoming professional dancers.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal joked that sometimes he felt like a T-Rex when wearing Mysterio's armor. The forearm pieces, known as vambraces, would stop Gyllenhaal's arm movements short.
  • Director Jon Watts wanted the goggles on the black Spider-Man costume to be the exact opposite of something that Iron Man would wear. They were also inspired by a popular style of flip-up glasses from the 1980s.
  • In the year 2000, Samuel L. Jackson played the character of Elijah Price in "Unbreakable" and the character of John Shaft in "Shaft." He played the same two characters in 2019 as well, in "Glass" and "Shaft" respectively.
  • The script for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" was written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. In addition to having written Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), the two have collaborated on other blockbuster projects including "Ant-Man and The Wasp," "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," and "The LEGO Batman Movie."
  • Jake Gyllenhaal's production company, Nine Stories, produced the movie "Stronger," which premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. Gyllenhaal plays Jeff Bauman, one of the survivors of the Boston Marathon attack.
  • The Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) has been known as such since 1929. It was originally founded by Pim Mulier as the Netherlands Football and Athletics Association (NVAB) in 1889.
  • Jon Favreau is an accomplished director, having helmed the live-action versions of Disney's "The Jungle Book" and "The Lion King."

  • Cobie Smulders is known for her role on the television comedy "How I Met Your Mother." She also plays Lisa in the ensemble show "Friends From College," which streams on Netflix.
  • Peter creates his new Spider-Man suit with a sense of purpose and resolve. Costume designer Anna B. Sheppard says, "The suit is Peter's vision for Spider-Man." She elaborates, "He is no longer trying to be Iron Man."
  • One might remember a young Peter Billingsley played Ralphie in "A Christmas Story." Billingsley originated the role of William Ginter Riva back in 2008's "Iron Man."
  • "Spider-Man: Far From Home" filmed a number of scenes at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios, which is near London. The production created sets for many of the film's locations, including Venice, Berlin, and Mexico.
  • Spider-Man's new costume has an advantage over his previous ones: he can now shoot webs from multiple locations on the suit because the technology behind the web-shooters is more advanced than before.
  • Tower Bridge is one of London's most famous landmarks. It was purposely built with a high-level pedestrian walkway so that people could cross the river even while the lower bridge was open to let boats through.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal loved playing the mysterious Quentin Beck and says, "I wanted to create a character that you won't forget."
  • Dahlia flowers are related to sunflowers, chrysanthemums, and zinnias. The blooms occur in a wide variety of colors and size. Some dahlias will grow to 15 inches in diameter.

Spoilers

  • In the first post-credits sequence of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), we see Mac Gargan (Michael Mando) professing his hatred for Spider-Man. This may be a hint at the fact that Mando will return as the main villain in this film.
  • Due to the post credit scene in Spiderman Homecoming (2017), the character Mac Gargan is seen asking for the identity of Spiderman to an imprisoned Toomes thus Spiderman's next villain appears to be the Scorpion leading to an eventual team up of the Sinister Six
  • In the comics, the Elementals are known as Hellfire (made of fire), Hydron (made of water), Magnum (made of earth) and Zephyr (made of wind). In this film, they have the names of Morris Bench (made of water), Flint Marko (made of earth) and Mark Raxton (made of fire), characters who took on elemental powers and became Spider-Man villains in their own right (Hydro-Man, Sandman and Molten Man). The wind Elemental does not appear.
  • This is Flint Marko's second cinematic appearance, after Spider-Man 3 (2007).
  • When the Elementals appear, there are various signs that refer to Spider-Man's comic history. A boat sign reads "ASM212" during the water Elemental attack. The water villain Hydro-Man (Morris Bench) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #212" (January 1981). A car bears a license plate reading "463" during the earth Elemental attack. The earth villain Sandman (Flint Marko) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #4," September 1963. A car bears a license plate reading "2865 SEP" during the fire Elemental attack. The fire villain Molten Man (Mark Raxton) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #28," September 1965. A car bears a license plate reading "TASM 143" during the final Elemental (incorporating all of the elements into a "Voltron" Elemental) attack. The air villain Cyclone (André Gerard) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #143," April 1975.
  • In the U.S. trailer, Peter's passport is missing vital information: His birthday is 10 August, and the dates of issue and expiration are respectively 19 July and 18 July, but all those dates are missing their years. However, if you look more closely at those dates, it looks as though those years were intentionally blurred out by CGI artists. This is most likely due to the fact that, in Avengers: Endgame (2019), Thanos's snap wasn't reversed until the year 2023, in which everything that happened at the time of the snap (in 2018) picked up immediately at that point, thus everyone who had been "blipped" became five years behind everyone else who had not. In this case, blurring out the years on Peter's passport was done to prevent this massive spoiler. However, in the final cut of this movie, neither the passport nor the scene where Peter requests the passport are featured.
  • In early April 2019, about two weeks before the premiere of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Kevin Feige confirmed that "Spider-Man: Far From Home" would take place after the events of that movie, which caused a little backlash between fans, as it indicates that Peter Parker would return from the dead in "Endgame", after his supposed death in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). However, this had already been correctly speculated by most fans from the moment this movie started shooting.
  • The four entities seen in this film are the Elementals, known as Hellfire (made of fire), Hydron (made of water), Magnum (made of earth) and Zephyr (made of wind). This was confirmed by Kevin Feige and is also mentioned in one of the latest trailers.
  • When Peter opens up the hologram display on the suit-machine, several prototype suit designs can be seen leftover from Tony's work. One of these suits is the Iron Spider suit from the Civil War comics, which sports a different design than the Iron Spider suit seen in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Avengers: Endgame (2019), and this film. Also included is the Anti-Ock suit featured in Spider-Man (2018) the video game.
  • Samuel L. Jackson is not credited as "Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury", but just his name. The reason is that he portrayed as Talos in disguise as Nick Fury in this movie.
  • Ben Mendelsohn reprises his role as Talos from Captain Marvel (2019) during the end credits - it is revealed that Talos had been taking over as Nick Fury for some unknown period of time.
  • Peter Parker's identity as Spider-Man is revealed to the public in the mid-credits scene, as a final act of defiance from Quentin Beck and his men by broadcasting it on television. This plot concept is based around the Civil War event in the comics where Spider-Man revealed his secret identity to the world while he was at a press conference in support of the Superhuman Registration Act.
  • Beck states he's from an alternate reality Earth-833. In this reality, Spider-Man is from the UK, where the final battle in this movie takes place.
  • Mysterio, at one point, shows Spider-Man an illusion of an undead Iron Man. This is likely a reference to the famous Marvel Zombies storyline.
  • Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) refers to the Star Wars films. Jackson played a substantial role in the prequel films of the Star Wars saga as Jedi master Mace Windu.
  • During Mysterio's hallucination-interrogation of Spider-Man he morphs a full-moon into his iconic "fishbowl" helmet; this is a visual nod to a similar scene which appeared in Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1994).
  • The song Happy plays while Peter is designing his new suit is "Back In Black" by AC/DC, the same song that is played during the opening of Iron Man (2008). Hilariously, Peter mistakes the band to be Led Zeppelin, whose "Immigrant Song" was prominently featured in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
  • When Peter Parker is debriefed by Quentin Beck, Beck mentions that he is from a different earth and that the one the events were taking place in was the 616 universe. In Marvel comics, the main continuity of events occur on Earth-616.
  • When Peter and Ned are in their classroom discussing Peter's "plans" with MJ toward the start of the movie, there is a rather large collage of Iron Man images on a bulletin board behind Peter; visible behind Ned above the blackboard (and ostensibly opposite to the Iron Man collage) are a series of surrealist prints, the most identifiable being "The False Mirror" (1929) by René Magritte, which foreshadows the plot of the movie and the role of Mysterio as a false reflection of Iron Man. The main part of "The False Mirror" is an iris that is depicted as a round orb filled with a cloudy sky, much like Mysterio's helmet.
  • The color acid green has long been used in pop culture to indicate villainy, possibly due to the color's origins in the 19th century as a fabric dye derived from arsenic. As a dye, it used to seep into the human body via contact thus eventually poisoning those in close proximity to it (even when used as wallpaper). As such, the color retains a deadly association which has been perpetuated in the movie industry through its prominent use by evil-doers. Mysterio's 'powers' are this particular shade of green, again foreshadowing the "friend who's really the villain" plot twist.
  • Shortly after the release of Captain America: Civil War (2016) (which introduced Spider-Man to the MCU), there was a fan theory that the BARF technology was created by Quentin Beck (Mysterio), sparking speculation that he was to be the villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). The Vulture was chosen as the villain of "Homecoming", but "Far From Home"'s villain is Mysterio, and the film confirms the fan theory that he was indeed the creator of the technology (for which Tony took credit).
  • As Peter Parker is crafting his upgraded suit in the private jet, you can see a hologram of the Anti-Ock suit from the 2018, "Marvel's Spider-Man" for the PS4.
  • While Hydro-Man is not technically in the film, Flash Thompson is researching the aquatic terror and brings up an article regarding science experiments done on a sailor named Morris Bench, who is Hydro-Man in the comics.
  • First MCU movie not to have a cameo by Stan Lee; he died shortly after filming wrapped for this movie, but never made it into this movie (most likely due to his declining health), which means that Avengers: Endgame (2019) was his final on-screen appearance. However, this movie does pay tribute to him and fellow Spider-Man creator Steve Ditko and is also the second MCU film to pay tribute to Stan Lee after Captain Marvel (2019).
  • The post-credit scene verifies a theory that was introduced in Captain Marvel (2019): Nick Fury is (at least sometimes) actually a Skrull. However, Talos is serving as somewhat of an ambassador to fill in for Fury while he seems to be overseeing Captain Marvel/Cosmic Avengers-level missions. Presumably, after the events of The Avengers (2012) when he knew the team was assembled, Fury took his skills to space and left Talos in his place, which is why Fury is eating diagonally-cut toast in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) (for he told Carol Danvers that he despises diagonally-cut toast).
  • In the sequence before the credits roll, when Peter is swinging through New York and passes by the old Avengers Tower which had been bought by a new owner as revealed in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), an advertisement for the buildings future indicates: "We can't wait for you to see whats coming next" (or something to that extent), followed with a graphic that counts: 1,2,3,.... This is possibly a foreshadowing of either the Baxter Building or of OsCorp as both are technologically advanced companies not unlike Stark Industries.
  • Marks the official MCU debut of J. Jonah Jameson, a fan-favorite character who has not been in a film since Spider-Man 3 (2007). He is played by the same actor, J.K. Simmons, who portrayed him in that Spider-Man trilogy. This marks the first time an actor has played the same character in a Marvel film's reboot of the series as they did in a previous series.
  • The camera used by Peter's teacher while in Italy (the one that's dropped in the water) seems to pay homage to the one used by Peter Parker in the '90s cartoon.
  • The overturned car on Tower Bridge has the plate number TASM 143. This comic (Amazing Spider-Man #143) introduced Cyclone when Spider-Man was in Paris. Paris is the only city Spider-Man does not get to visit in this film.
  • With his appearance in the mid-credits scene as J. Jonah Jameson, J.K. Simmons becomes the sixth actor to star in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film and a DC Extended Universe film, after Zachary Levi, Djimon Hounsou, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Randall Park, and Callan Mulvey. Ayelet Zurer also starred in Man of Steel (2013) and the Marvel series Daredevil (2015), but did not appear in an MCU film.
  • When Peter's classmates defeat the drone in the Tower of London, they use a combination of weapons symbolic of departed Avengers. Betty uses a suit of armor (Iron Man, deceased), MJ uses a hammer-like mace (Thor, in space), and Happy uses a shield (Captain America, in the past/aged). Happy even questions, after weakly throwing it, "How does Cap do it?"
  • Peter's main adversaries in this movie turn out to be weaponized drones. In 2018's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), both Peter B. Parker and Miles Morales mention that they "Got hit in the face by a drone."
  • As Peter and MJ are swinging together for the first time through NYC as the movie closes, they pass a sign that reads, "We can't wait ... to show you... what's next." This phrase appears over "1...2...3...?", a possible indication of the end of Phase 3 in the MCU and the beginning of Phase 4.
  • The first word of dialogue suggests that Fury and Hill are Skrulls. As established in Captain Marvel (2019), everyone calls him "Fury," a gaffe that reveals Talos's true identity when he greets Fury in the elevator as "Nick." The very first spoken word in this movie is Hill addressing Fury as "Nick."
  • Peter wakes up in a prison cell in the Netherlands. This is a play on Tom Holland's surname.
  • In the final battle, Peter makes himself a hammer-like weapon out of the debris of Tower Bridge and the cars on it. Then he finds a large metal sign to use as a shield. When he starts running, he looks very much the same as Captain America did during the final battle of Avengers: Endgame (2019), running with his shield and Thor's hammer, Mjolnir.
  • Both of the Sony/Marvel Studios Spider-Man movies have opened with a short scene introducing the villain before the Marvel Studios logo, then a crude homemade video involving the Avengers and recapping what happened the last time Spider-Man appeared in an MCU film.
  • When Peter mentions Captain Marvel to Nick Fury, Fury snaps at him and tells him not to "invoke her name." This is an early indication that Fury is in fact being impersonated by Talos, who presumably still harbours some animosity towards Carol Danvers.
  • When Mysterio refers to the Earth as being "Earth-616", some in the audience know he is lying about the situation. Earth-616 is the Prime Universe that Marvel Comics exists in. Earth-199999 is the Universe where the Marvel Cinematic Universe resides, including this movie.
  • Early on in the film, Quentin Beck can be seen lurking around Peter Parker after their arrival at the shabby hotel, just before the water elemental fight. A few of Beck's men can be seen as well.
  • During the early part of the film, many of the characters speculate that aliens are somehow involved with the appearance of the Elementals and Mysterio. Their speculations are oddly correct, as the inept Skrulls are part of the reason why Mysterio's plan nearly succeeds.
  • When Peter mentions Captain Marvel, Fury responds with "Don't invoke her name!". The line takes on a new context when it is revealed that the Skrull Talos has been impersonating Fury during the entire movie. Talos is referring to Peter's use of the name "Mar-Vell" who gave her life to protect Talos' family and other Skrull refugees.
  • The revelation that Talos was impersonating Nick Fury helps clear up some character plot holes, most noticeably why Fury would so easily trust Quentin Beck, and why he was so insistent that Peter take on the mission. In the latter case, it's obvious from his phone conversation with Fury that Talos has no idea where the Avengers are, and therefore must rely on Peter to resolve the crisis.
  • Peter Billingsley reprises his role as William Ginter Riva, a Stark Industries employee in the first Iron Man (2008) movie. A friend and producing partner of Iron Man director Jon Favreau, Billingsley is of course most well known as Ralphie, the protagonist of the beloved holiday classic A Christmas Story (1983).
  • Continues the theme in MCU movies of a mentor/parental figure being revealed as either the true villain or a morally compromised character : Obadiah Stane in Iron Man (2008), Alexander Pierce in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), The Ancient One in Doctor Strange (2016), T'Chaka in Black Panther (2018), and Yon-Rogg (and possibly the Supreme Intelligence) in Captain Marvel (2019). Here not only does Quentin Beck turn out to be evil, but Tony Stark is shown to have questionable ethics.
  • During the "In Memoriam" slideshow that covers the characters who died in Avengers: Endgame (2019), we see an image of Captain America. This could mean that in the short time between "Avengers: Endgame" and "Spider-Man: Far From Home", Steve Rogers has died OR he went into hiding after he passed the shield to Falcon, and people assumed he died.
  • Fury being revealed to be a Skrull in the end credits is foreshadowed when Fury introduces Mysterio to Peter by saying "Beck is from Earth. Just not yours."
  • In his original appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #13, Quentin Beck (Mysterio) was a disgruntled movie special effects artist and stuntman who used trickery to commit crimes.
  • There is a license plate seen during the bridge scene, TASM 143, which references The Amazing Spider-Man comic #143, where Peter Parker goes to Europe.
  • During the climax, Peter grabs a sign from the bridge to use as a shield as well as a piece of debris that he swings around. The way he holds the shield and debris is identical to Captain America's in Avengers Endgame when it's revealed Cap can wield Mjölnir
  • The suit that Beck is revealed to be wearing (the black leotard with all the triangles on it) is a motion-capture suit, the same kind that actors wear when modeling action for computer-generated characters.
  • The news coverage at the beginning of the film shows photos of all the Avengers who died for good during the war against Thanos, as seen in both Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
  • The space station Fury is seen overseeing could be the Alpha Flight Station, introduced in the more recent Captain Marvel comics. Alpha Flight was originally the Canadian superhero team, but the name was later applied to a space station commanded by Captain Marvel to act as the planet's first line of defense.
  • Throughout the film Spider-Man's Spider-Sense is referred to as the "Peter Tingle". In addition a few comic book references are made, the fact that May Parker caught Peter by surprise by tossing a banana to him (as it doesn't work on people that Peter wouldn't subconsciously register as a threat) and during the final battle with Mysterio where Peter uses it after briefly closing his eyes to tackle Mysterio's illusions (as Peter used this ability in the comics several times to locate his enemy when he didn't have the use of his eyes, similar to Daredevil's Radar Sense).
  • Mysterio in the Spider-Man comics is a special effects wizard and stunt man working in Hollywood. In this movie he is a scientist and former employee of Stark Industries. Spider-Man defeats Mysterio with his spider-sense just like he does in the comics.
  • At the end of the film when Spider-Man is swinging through the city to meet MJ, he takes out his phone and snaps a selfie. The pose he does is the exact same pose Spider-Man does when you take a selfie in the PS4 game Spider-Man (2018).
  • As Peter swings to meet MJ for their date he swings past the Osborn family mansion from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films.
  • When Peter lands after swinging to meet MJ for their date they are near the library where Jake Gyllenhaal waits for his father in The Day After Tomorrow (2004).
  • Nick Fury's agent, known as only as 'Dimitri', shares the same first name as Spider-Man rogue gallery regular Chameleon, who is a spy and master of disguise. As Nick Fury and Maria Hill are both revealed to be Skrulls in this movie, it's a possibility this Dimitri also is a Skrull and shares the same shape-shifting abilities. This could set him up as a potential villain for the future should he decide to go rogue, and the Skrulls having a reptilian appearance could very well be where he would get his "Chameleon" name in the MCU.
  • The shirt MJ wears as she and Spider-Man swing through New York displays the outfit Zendaya wore to the 2018 Met Gala, for which she dressed as Joan of Arc.
  • Both "Spider-Man: Far from Home" and Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) end with the last spoken line of both films being: "What the F**k?!" Aunt May speaks the line at the end of "Homecoming", and Peter as Spider-Man says the same line at the end of the mid-credits scene in "Far From Home".
  • The MCU TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013) is referenced a couple of times: when Fury/Talos speaks of Kree sleeper cells, and during the post-credit scene, when the real Nick Fury is seen relaxing in front of a fake white beach, a nod to Phil Coulson's vision while enduring the T.A.H.I.T.I. process.
  • During one of the sequences of Mysterio's visions, a gang of Spider-Man copies spawn and attack Peter - a possible reference to when Mysterio utilises them during his boss battle in the original Spider-Man 2 (2004) game.
  • Near the end of the film, there is a banner with phases on it, "1...2...3...?" This is near the original site of Stark Tower, the supposed new site of the Baxter Building, home of the Fantastic Four.
  • "Spider-Man: Far From Home" takes place in the year 2024, eight months after Avengers: Endgame (2019).
  • Reprising their roles from Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) are Angourie Rice as Betty Brandt and Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. as Jason Ionello. Betty and Jason are now anchoring Midtown High's morning news program.
  • During the climactic battle scene on Tower Bridge, as Spiderman creates his makeshift weapons (resembling Thor's Mjolnir and Captain America's shield), the musical score plays a tiny melodic hint of the Avengers theme, heard in variations throughout the MCU.
  • Numan Acar portrays a silent agent working for Nick Fury named Dmitri who seems to be skilled at blending in by performing different roles to keep an eye on Peter Parker in plain sight (such as driving the school group's tour bus). Dmitri is also the name of a Spider-Man villain called Chameleon (Dmitri Smerdyakov) who is also known for his ability to adapt to different identities. However, despite their similarities it has not been confirmed whether or not Acar's character is meant to be the MCU version of the villain.
  • During the climactic Tower Bridge battle, Spider-Man defeats several drones in one move and drops to the ground in the infamous Iron Man pose furthering the "Spider-Man is the new Iron Man" thread of the movie.
  • When Nick Fury introduces Peter to Quentin Beck, he says that Beck is from Earth, just not yours. When referring to Earth it would have been more appropriate for Fury to say "ours" instead of yours, but this makes sense as it's later revealed that Talos is the one impersonating Fury
