33. The Rundown Hotel
Midtown High don't seem to have exactly splashed out on quality accommodation for their students - the hotel the kids are going to in Venice looks pretty rundown. The inside is a little bit better, but still frankly quite dingy.
32. Nick Fury Recruits Spider-Man
Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury is the main MCU cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home. The trailer reveals that Fury correctly deduces (or already knew) Spider-Man's secret identity, and pays Peter an unexpected visit, shooting Ned with a tranquilizer dart in the process. This would appear to take place during the Venice leg of the trip, either before or after the Hydro-Man action sequence (possibly after given Peter doesn't have his suit).
There's certainly a strong comic book precedent for a partnership between Fury and Spider-Man; in the comics, Peter's parents were members of S.H.I.E.L.D., and that became a crucial plot point in Marvel's Ultimate Universe relaunch in the 2000s; the end result was Peter and Fury becoming In the Ultimate Universe - which has often served as inspiration for the films - Fury cared deeply about the Parkers and was devastated by their deaths, subsequently keeping a watchful eye on their son. He was thrilled when he realized Peter Parker was Spider-Man, and groomed him to become the greatest hero of them all. Naturally, the relationship between the two had its highs and lows - Fury is a secretive man, and he never quite revealed just how much he cared about Peter - but over time the two became good friends. This idea has since been reproduced in a number of popular Spider-Man animated series.
31. No Nick Fury In Avengers: Endgame?
Avengers: Endgame is known to feature a single scene that's supposed to feature absolutely every major MCU character to date. Well, almost everyone. According to Fury, he's never met Spider-Man before the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Given it's safe to assume the wall-crawler is part of that "absolutely everybody" scene, does that mean Nick Fury isn't in it?
30. The Classic Theme Returns
The trailer features a modernized version of the classic Spider-Man theme tune, which was originally composed back in 1967 by Paul Francis Webster and Bob Harris. The various Spider-Man reboots have all paid homage to this tune; buskers sang versions of it in Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, while it was Peter's ringtone in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This version is similar to the one featured in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was orchestrated by Michael Giacchino.
29. A Secret Base In Venice?
Spider-Man: Far From Home set photos showed Peter and Nick Fury going for a boat ride, presumably to a secret base in Venice. According to the Captain Marvel Prelude comic, Fury has been operating out of bases he established across the world back when he was Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. He's believed to now be working with a new organization, though, in which case they may have a Venice HQ as well.
