Our Favorite SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Easter Eggs

If you brush aside Tom Holland turning into a pile of dust on Titan, Spider-Man is having a pretty amazing year. His new PS4 game was a huge hit, and this past week the innovative, game-changing Into the Spider-Verse swung into theaters.

The film’s opening box office success might not even be as impressive as the acclaim that is being heaped upon it from both critics and audience-goers alike, and with good reason. The movie combine some of our favorite Spider-Mans and Spider-Womans in a touching, action-packed story that is entirely unique while also paying tribute to 50 years of the character, in all of his and hers many forms. To celebrate maybe the best Spider-Man movie ever, here are some of our favorite Easter eggs we caught in Into the Spider-Verse.

On today’s (spoiler-filled) Nerdist News, host Jessica Chobot weaves a web of the best nods, homages, cameos, and references scattered throughout the film. From surprise appearances voiced by some pretty big stars, to tributes to other Spider-Mans and even other TV shows, and remembrances of Spider-Man’s many creators over the years, the movie was jam-packed with wonderful references, some obvious and some very, very deep.

Give us all the Spider-suits. Also, give us all the sequels. Immediately. In the meantime we’re gonna see Into the Spider-Verse again, and not just because we might have missed some Easter eggs. And also because we don’t want to keep thinking about poor tom Holland’s Peter being nothing but dust.

What was your favorite Easter egg in the movie? Which ones did you originally miss? Tell us in the comments below which references you were most excited to see.
