    5. The number 42 is placed in the movie as a reference to Jackie Robinson, the first black player in MLB. Miles Morales is the first Afro-Latino superhero. You see Miles laying between the numbers four and two after he falls from a building, and the spider that originally bit him was numbered 42.
