Here's 10 hidden details in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that only true fans of Marvel's web-slingers will notice. Unlike the prior six live-action solo Spider-Man movies, Sony changed the superhero movie landscape with Spider-Verse. Not only is it a big budget animated superhero film, but it also put the focus on the Afro-Latino teen hero Miles Morales for the first time instead of Peter Parker.
Even though Into the Spider-Verse changed the usual perspective of a Spider-Man movie, it did so while introducing a much grander scope. The film is a true love letter to the history of the character, not just in how it sets up Miles becoming the friendly neighborhood hero, but also in the ways it shows the evolution of Spider-Man in all forms of media. In doing so, Into the Spider-Verse is loaded with Easter eggs, including many that don't pertain to the wall-crawling heroes. But, the Spidey-related ones may be some of the best.
Whether one is a casual fan of Spider-Man through the movies or have read every comic to ever feature someone with a spider logo on their chest, Into the Spider-Verse has something for fans of all levels. There's references to prior movies, the comic history, and even the character's appearances in other forms of media. Spider-Verse does move very quick though, so Screen Rant compiled a list of 10 details from the movie that only the truest fans may have caught in the theater. The video does include some SPOILERS for Spider-Verse, so watch with caution.
Now that everyone is caught up on some of Spider-Verse's biggest and deepest references, everyone can be up to date on the fun and possibly find even more enjoyment out of the film. Many of the details related to Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man trilogy were featured in the marketing, so it's possible that even those who haven't seen the movie yet are aware of some of what the animated spectacle film includes. They even lifted a line from one of Raimi's films too.
With so much fun to be had with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, it's easy to see why the film has been as well-received as it's been thus far. The overall reception and holiday rollout has given the film solid legs at the box office too, where it now is closing in on $300 million worldwide. Sony is already prepping for a sequel, so this won't be the last time that Miles' story is told in this capacity. In fact, the studio is also developing an all-female spinoff film starring Gwen Stacy, Spider-Woman, and Silk. Producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are expected to be heavily involved in the creative process on both movies too, so there should be plenty of opportunities for them to include more Spidey related references in future installments.
