In “TASM,” you can see the poster of the famed scientist when Peter removes his contacts and puts his glasses on. 

In “Spider-Man,” a different black-and-white poster of Einstein appears in Peter’s bedroom. 

Peter has a poster for Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 movie “Rear Window” on a wall in his bedroom.

The logo and aesthetic of the newspaper in Webb’s films differ from the version seen in Raimi’s movies. 

In “TASM 2,” The Daily Bugle editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson is mentioned in conversations and emails that Peter sends, but the character doesn’t appear on-screen at all. 

“The Office” star B.J. Novak plays an insensitive Oscorp employee named Alistair Smythe, who makes Max stay at the office later.

He undermines Max and is skeptical of the electrician’s claim that he designed the power grid that’s used to sustain the city.

In the comics, Alistair Smythe becomes a foe of Spider-Man. 

Peter’s email from Aunt May in “TASM 2,” reminding him to pick up eggs, is a callback to the first movie.

In “TASM,” Peter has a swinging sequence and is interrupted by a phone call from Aunt May asking him to pick up organic eggs. But he gets caught up trying to find Uncle Ben’s killer and returns home sans eggs.

At the end of the movie after fighting The Lizard and curing him, Peter returns home exhausted. He finally gives Aunt May a carton of eggs and hugs her.

In “TASM 2,” a glimpse of Peter’s email inbox includes an email from Aunt May with the subject line: “Don’t forget to pick up eggs!”

Felicity Jones portrays Felicia Hardy in “TASM,” also known as Black Cat in the Spider-Man comics.

She has a minor role as Harry Osborn’s (Dane DeHaan) assistant in “TASM.”

A third “TASM” movie, which was scrapped due to the sequel’s under-performance, likely would have featured Jones’ character more prominently. 

In a 2019 interview with Yahoo Movies UK, the actress said “I’d love to play her again.”

“She’s a great character,” Jones added. 

Peter has a poster for the 2001 documentary film “Dogtown and Z-Boys” in his room.

It’s a fitting poster for Peter, since the documentary explores the skateboarding subculture. 

Harry accesses his father’s files on top-secret projects that have mentions of Doc Ock, Venom, and Morbius.

There are files that say: “Venom Storage,” “Experiment Oct 32A” (seemingly a reference to the number of times Doc Ock appeared in the “Ultimate Spider-Man” comics), and “Dr. Morbius File.”

In Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy, Alfred Molina played Doc Ock and Topher Grace portrayed Venom. 

Dr. Michael Morbius, a vampire and Spidey villain in the comics, will make his big-screen debut in “Morbius” starring Jared Leto as the character and set for release in 2022.

The special projects division at Ravencroft has suits for Spidey foes Doc Ock and Vulture.

Mr. Gustav Fiers (Michael Massee) is seen walking through a room that has Vulture wings and Ock tentacles. He and Harry agree to start with one test subject — Aleksei Sytsevich, who finally becomes Rhino.

“TASM” (and the graphic design of the credits) was setting up a future storyline involving the Sinister Six, a group of Spidey supervillains in the comics. But the idea was scrapped when the “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise was abandoned.
