The following post contains SPOILERS from across the Spoiler-Verse for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
When Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse came out on Blu-ray, I made a list of all the Easter eggs in the movie, including all the ones that were shown too briefly to spot in theaters. (And, yes, spot was a pun. We’re starting the dad jokes early on this one!) Ultimately, I found over 110 different references to Marvel Comics and movies in that film. Which is a lot!
But that’s nothing compared to the hidden homages, callbacks, and little details in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. For one thing, the new movie is over two hours and 20 minutes long, so it’s got more way screen time for Easter eggs (and, y’know, characters and story and quasi-important stuff like that). Across the Spider-Verse also has scenes featuring the “Spider-Society,” a group of hundreds of Spider-Men from around the multiverse banded together to fight interdimensional bad guys — and those scenes are like an ocular onslaught of Marvel references.
