With a premise that includes the Multiverse colliding, it is only natural that there will be a slew of Easter Eggs in Spider-Man: No Way Home that tie into the web-extensive head’s past. Sony Pictures has published the third video in its series, pointing out some of the connections that viewers may have missed, such as nods to Kraven the Hunter and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movie.
The video, which was posted to Sony Pictures Entertainment’s official YouTube page, concentrates on the Easter Eggs uncovered towards the film’s conclusion. During the moment where the universe collapses around the Empire State Building during the last fight, a few shadows may be seen that even long-time fans may have difficulty identifying. According to the video, one of these guys holding a spear is the villain Kraven the Hunter, who will get his own cinematic version akin to Venom and Morbius. Scorpion, a figure mentioned in Spider-Man: Homecoming and played by Michael Mando, is standing next to him. The “obscure yet fan-favorite” six-armed Spider-Man rounds out the lineup.
Along with these figures emerging in the rips of reality, there are other simpler references that do not necessitate the fabric of spacetime being torn apart. The apartment that Peter moves into at the conclusion of the film is a nod to Tobey Maguire’s Spidey’s flat in Spider-Man 2 as well as the apartment that Peter can barely afford in the comics. Finally, Peter sewing his own costume alludes to him manufacturing his own suit in the comics, with the new design and color palette most closely approaching Steve Ditko’s original comic book design of the famous superhero outfit.
While some of the references may have passed over spectators’ heads, it’s more than likely that many of these Easter Eggs were picked up by eagle-eyed fans — and given how many people saw the film, that figure isn’t inconsequential. Spider-Man: No Way Home was a critical and economic success, topping the $800 million mark at the American box office as of March 2022. It is just the third picture in history to achieve this feat, following other Disney blockbusters Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Endgame.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is now available on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and digital formats. The most recent video delving into the film’s Easter Eggs can be seen down below.
