With Spider-Man: Homecoming being such a carefully crafted
movie, it’s inevitable there’s a metric ton of interesting facts about it.
Considering the sheer levels of Easter eggs, and nods to the
overall Spider-Man mythos, it’s almost surprising that the entirety of fascinating
facts about the film aren’t solely about how many references they managed to fit in
one viewing experience.
But the process with which Homecoming was made actually
manages to be equally interesting. While executive decisions about tone and
when to film don’t sound groundbreaking, the fine detail of how the film came
to be actually only makes the whole movie seem even better – which, for dire
hard Spider-Man fans, may almost be too good to be true.
Between major characters hidden in the background, secret
book references, and even the wildly different original plot, there’s little
that isn’t interesting about Spider-Man: Homecoming.
10. There’s A Secret Miles Morales Reference
While Donald Glover’s appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming
was great on acting terms alone, it was spiced up even further by it raising
the idea that Miles Morales – known best as the Spider-Man in Spider-Man 2099 –
may be appearing in this universe sometime soon.

neighbourhood, and who he wants to look out for. With the character Glover
plays – Aaron Davis – being canonically Miles Morales’ uncle in the comic
universe, this seems a sure sign that the beloved character may feature in a
Recently revealed deleted scenes have only served to
strengthen this belief, as in one Glover phones his nephew, and refers to him
explicitly as Miles – which is a pretty solid sign Morales has been thought
about in the context of the Homecoming universe.
While Miles’ presence in the animated Spider-Man film was
nothing short of sublime, a live-action appearance would be sure to add that
little extra hype to the established universe.
