    Also, fun fact, Childish Gambino was the voice of Miles Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series and also played Aaron Davis, uncle of Miles Morales, in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

    20. Before she's revealed as Gwen Stacey/Spider-Woman, "Gwanda" tells Miles to "just relax" when he gets his hands stuck in her hair, a tactic he has to use in the movie to unstick from things, symbolizing that she knew who he was before he did.


    21. Miles' Spidey-movements at the end of the film are direct movements he learned from Peter B. Parker at the beginning of the film.

    22. And finally, here you can see a shot of the FLDSMDFR from Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, perhaps because Michael Kurinsky and Danny Dimian worked on the visual effects for both Spider-Verse and Cloudy.
