The Sweet Secret Hiding in Plain Sight in Spider-Man: Far From Home

As is tradition for Marvel movies, the latest MCU entry, Spider-Man: Far from Home is loaded with Easter eggs- that is, little references to comics that aren’t necessarily involved in the current story.

In Far from Home, quite a number of these Easter eggs came in the form of license plates scattered throughout the movie on various vehicles; watch the movie with an eye out for these and you’ll see various comic books getting referenced. There was one, however, that was particularly cute. in my opinion. Spoilers ahead!

In the scene on the bridge, when Spider-Man finds his friends after the big attack, there’s a car flipped over with the license plate “TASM 143”. This is a reference to The Amazing Spider-Man 143, which came out back in April 1975 and featured the first appearance of The Cyclone- a minor villain with a bit of thematic relevance to Far From Home, since the film’s antagonist uses wind powers to catch Spider-Man off guard.

More exciting, however, is that in this issue, Peter Parker shares his first kiss with Mary Jane before heading for France. In the movie, this happens right on the scene on the bridge- Peter and MJ kiss for the first time. If you’d like to pick up a copy of this comic, it’s available right here on Amazon.

It’s a small touch, but it’s one that I really loved; did you catch any interesting Easter eggs in Far From Home? Let us know in the comments below.
