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.

Crusher Hogan Appears In The Background
In another nod to Spider-Man's untold origins, there's a brief moment in Far from Home in which a "Crusher Hogan" poster is visible during the fundraiser. For those unfamiliar, Crusher Hogan is technically the first person Spider-Man ever fought in the comics.
The 2002 Spider-Man featured a similar character known as Bonesaw McGraw.Did you miss this?
Peter's Phone Is Still Cracked
One of the more interesting Spider-Man: Homecoming Easter eggs has to do with Peter Parker's phone - namely, its propensity to crack after a fight. Redditor /u/sixtytwosixtyseven noticed the phone gets more damaged after each fight in that movie.
Early on in Far from Home, Parker looks at his phone to see who's calling and, wouldn't you know it, the screen is still cracked. Even with all the high-tech Stark Industries gear, Parker still doesn't have enough money to spring for a new phone.Did you miss this?

Ned And Betty Were Married In The Comics
Though their relationship doesn't last long in Far from Home, Ned Leeds and Betty Brant have gotten together before.
Specifically, in the Spider-Man comics, the two straight-up got married.Did you miss this?

Americans Always Confuse The London And Tower Bridges
It's a brief moment, but one of the characters mentions that the climactic fight occurs on Tower Bridge - not London Bridge, as Eugene says on his live stream. This isn't just a throwaway joke, however.
As it turns out, tourists are always confusing the London and Tower bridges. While the London Bridge has the more well-known name, Tower Bridge is the one you'd actually want to visit.Did you miss this?
