Small Details Fans Noticed In 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'

Voting Rules

Vote up the best web-slinging details.

Whether you're a casual fan or a Spidey aficionado, Spider-Man: No Way Home has a ton to offer in terms of callbacks, cameos, and Easter eggs. Not all of them are easy to spot, though, even when using your keenest Spidey sense. Thankfully, fans online are pointing out some of the best small details to come out of No Way Home.

There are several great references to the original Sam Raimi franchise. For example, just like in the first Spider-Man, Norman Osborn has a perfect set of veneers, while the Green Goblin has crooked teeth and gaps between them. It's worth keeping an eye out for some of Spidey's moves, too. When dodging the Green Goblin's bombs, Tom Holland's Spider-Man man does the same flipping dodge as Toby Maguire's. And of course, there's gotta be some love for Stan Lee. Check out the number on a taxi that Spider-Man leaps over. It's Lee's birthday!

Check out this list of small details fans spotted in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    Norman Has Nicer Teeth Than The Green Goblin

    From Redditor u/CalmGameshow:

    Little detail that was brought back from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 1 (2002) in Spider-Man No Way Home (2021). Willem Dafoe wears prosthetics as Norman Osborn, but as the Goblin persona he retains Dafoe’s natural, less perfect, teeth.

    Explanation: The phrase 'When you help someone, you help everyone' is a quote often said by May in the Spider-Man PS4 video game. It appears on her grave when she dies at the end of the game. This was carried over for May's grave in NWH.
