Spider-Man: Far from Home was tasked with following the biggest superhero movie of all-time, Avengers: Endgame, and officially ending Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (which explains why there are so many additional secrets in Spider-Man: Far from Home). And though it should probably come as no surprise at this point, Far from Home absolutely stuck the sticky, webbed landing.
Like most MCU movies, Far from Home is crammed with hilarious moments and memorable one-liners that still somehow serve the mind-melting action and engrossing plot. There's just so much going on that it can be easy to miss all the Far from Home Easter eggs sprinkled throughout. There are references to both classic Spider-Man comics and older MCU films, as well as a handful of homages to the Spider-Man movies from the early 2000s, back before the MCU was even a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye.
Dmitri Is Probably The Chameleon
Although it's never been confirmed, there's a decent chance the Dmitri we see in Far from Home is none other than Dmitri Smerdyakov - also known as the Chameleon. The Chameleon is one of Spider-Man's enemies from the comics, but the movie never officially reveals whether or not he's a villain.
He does work for Nick Fury... but Fury is actually a Skrull in the film. So who knows?Did you miss this?
Spider-Monkey Gets A Shoutout
Ned's quick thinking - and Spider-Man's outfit change - causes everybody in the media to believe Spider-Man in Prague is actually a new superhero named "Night Monkey." And while Night Monkey doesn't exist in the comics, Spider-Monkey absolutely does.
Spider-Monkey hails from Earth-8101 and lives in... Monkhattan, New York. There's a reason you haven't heard of this guy.Did you miss this?

Earth-833 Is The One With Spider-UK
Obviously, we have to assume most everything Mysterio tells Peter Parker is a lie. So we still don't really know if a multiverse exists in the MCU or not - despite what the Ancient One seems to say in Endgame.
But it's interesting that Mysterio says he's from Earth-833, because that reality is actually wiped out in the comics. It also features a British Spider-Man named Spider-UK.
Also, it's important to note that the MCU universe is Earth-616, which is considered our universe in the comics.Did you miss this?
Fury Might Be Building S.W.O.R.D.
This may be reading into things a bit much, but it seems possible that the "real" Nick Fury is working to build the intelligence agency known as S.W.O.R.D. In the comics, this organization is somewhat analogous to S.H.I.E.L.D., but it deals with more extraterrestrial threats.
Even more interestingly, it's a big part of the Skrull storyline from the comics known as "Secret Invasion," which many MCU fans think the movies could possibly be adapting next.Did you miss this?
