In reality, via spider-verse It contains so many Easter eggs that it is hard for one person to notice them all. However, we have picked some of our favorites and want to share them with you.
It might be the first thing you notice via spider-verse (Apart from the cool animation) It was 280 Spider-People. Approximately 95 of them have names and lines in the movie. To move all these spidery things, via spider-verse It set an animated movie record for having nearly 1,000 people working on it. On this massive list of crew members, there are cameos and links to just about everything Spider-Man related.

via spider-verse He references video games, comic book facts, and of course, every Sony Spider-Man that ever existed. From the almost countless number of Easter eggs hidden inside via spider-verseHere are some of our favourites.
Easter eggs inside the spider-verse
via spider-verse It begins with the Comics Code Authority’s approval, a small logo that appeared on comic books in the 1960s to let parents know they were safe for their children to read. This movie is full of old references like that. The animation is supposed to look like a comic book covered in Ben-Day dots, a cheap printing method for creating shading. The animators even played with frames per second to make some of the action look smoother and Spider-Punk look richer.
Some people may have noticed that the Lego world gets an extra special attention when Miguel O’Hara told Lego Peter Parker that it was “one of their best.” This is likely because filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are also known for making them lego movie.
There are also some references to In the spider verse When an old version of a grinning nerd appears on the street. And again after the fight at the museum when they played back an audio clip of Post Malone when he says, “Yeah, I think it’s Banksy.” Miles said he endorses baby powder was also a reference to In the spider verse When Peter B. Parker said it would make it easier to get in and out of his costume.
Later in the movie, we also see two separate scenes from both the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies when Miguel O’Hara explains how all of the Spider-People are connected. O’Hara also points out Spider-Man: Homecoming When he says, “It started with Doctor Strange and the Nerd on Earth – 199999,” implying that he’s familiar with the MCU movies.
Who are all these spiders?
Of course, figuring out who the 280 Spider-People are is a job for a comic book historian, but some of our favorites have turned up. Starting with the main one, Miguel O’Hara (voiced by Oscar Isaac) is Spider-Man 2099, the Spider-Man from the future who has advanced back in time to save his reality. The Marvelous Spider-Woman on the Motorcycle is Jessica Drew (voiced by Issa Rae) from the Marvel main canon of Earth-616. Some may recognize Karan Soni’s voice as Paviter Prabhacker since he appeared as Deadpool’s driver in dead pool series.
And there are some other spider people that you may not have recognized. The Spider-Man with a bag over his head is the Bombastic Bag Man, a reference to the time when Spider-Man was stuck without his suit in Fantastic 4 headquarters and had to leave with a bag and some borrowed clothes on. The little dune buggy that a group of Spider-People hopped into is actually the Peter Parked-Car of Earth-53931. And Cowboy Spider-Man is actually a Web-Slinger (voiced by Taran Killam of Saturday Night Live) and his horse’s widow.
