(at around 59 mins) At one point, in a scene set in Washington, D.C., Spider-Man is shown running beside the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial, where Captain America and Falcon first met in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). See more »
(at around 1h 24 mins) Ned gets a LEGO Death Star to build with Peter and he shows him the Emperor Palpatine figure. LEGO made two Death Stars. One in 2008, one in 2016. The 2016 edition updated all the original figures. When Peter and Ned finish the set, they stick Palpatine (2016 edition) on top of the set. If you look closely, you will notice that the actual set is the 2008 edition. See more »

A 'spectacular' Spider-Man movie that proves that Spider-Man's still got it.
Jon Watts (Director of Clown and Cop Car) perfects the character and charm of Spider-Man that we all love from the comics without doing disservice to either fans of both the Raimi and Amazing Spider-Man franchises with a fun superhero movie oozing with joy with its great cast and characters, big and small, as well as an 'amazing' performance from Tom Holland who brilliantly combines what Maguire and Garfield brought to the character by truly demonstrating the differences and similarities between the awkward nerd Peter Parker and the quippy crime fighting Spider-Man. The film also gives many critics of Marvel's lack of great villains what they want most, a relatable villain that is as, if not more, interesting than the hero itself and not only is great adversary physically but also psychologically and we see this with Michael Keaton's excellent portrayal of the Vulture. What Spider-Man: Homecoming does best, however, is its attention to detail and world building put into the town of Queens, which feels more real and believable than any other fictional world we have seen in the MCU, making Spider-Man: Homecoming one of the best chapters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and another great example for future superhero movies to learn from.
