Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Tom Holland wanted Jason Momoa as Kraven the Hunter in the movie.
  • This isn't the first time Jake Gyllenhaal has been associated with a Spider-Man film. Originally he was going to replace Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 (2004) after Maguire got injured during the filming of Seabiscuit (2003), but luckily, his injuries healed up and he came back on set.
  • This is Samuel L. Jackson's third consecutive MCU appearance as Nick Fury, following Captain Marvel (2019) and Avengers: Endgame (2019). This also the first time an MCU character has appeared in three films in one year.
  • It was reported that Matt Damon turned down the villain role.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal is almost never seen wearing anything other than his full "superhero" suit throughout. It was actually suggested to him he'd wear something else for certain scenes, but according to him, he genuinely liked wearing that suit so much he refused to wear anything else. However, a keen eye can see Gyllenhaal in character. spying on Peter Parker in street cloths just before Peter purchases the Black Dahlia necklace before Hydroman attacks.
  • When discussing Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, producer [?] Amy Pascal says, "As much as we talked about Mysterio in a practical way - like how his powers would work in the movie - when Jake got involved, he brought a new level of humanity, unpredictability, and humor to the character."
  • Tom Holland says that Happy Hogan is one of his favorite characters and that he loves how Jon Favreau plays him, calling him "one of the godfathers of this entire universe."
  • Tom Holland, who is from London, was actually closer to home while filming "Spider-Man: Far From Home" than he was when filming "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
  • Jake Gyllenhaal loved playing the mysterious Quentin Beck and says, "I wanted to create a character that you won't forget."
  • Jake Gyllenhaal joked that sometimes he felt like a T-Rex when wearing Mysterio's armor. The forearm pieces, known as vambraces, would stop Gyllenhaal's arm movements short.
  • Both Jake Gyllenhaal and his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal have appeared in a major superhero franchise. Maggie took over for Katie Holmes (Batman Begins (2005)) as Bruce Wayne's love interest Rachel Dawes in The Dark Knight (2008).
  • When Peter mentions Captain Marvel, Fury responds with "Don't invoke her name!". The line takes on a new context when it is revealed that the Skrull Talos has been impersonating Fury during the entire movie. Talos is referring to Peter's use of the name "Mar-Vell" who gave her life to protect Talos' family and other Skrull refugees.
  • The revelation that Talos was impersonating Nick Fury helps clear up some character plot holes, most noticeably why Fury would so easily trust Quentin Beck, and why he was so insistent that Peter take on the mission. In the latter case, it's obvious from his phone conversation with Fury that Talos has no idea where the Avengers are, and therefore must rely on Peter to resolve the crisis.
  • The first word of dialogue suggests that Fury and Hill are Skrulls. As established in Captain Marvel (2019), everyone calls him "Fury," a gaffe that reveals Talos's true identity when he greets Fury in the elevator as "Nick." The very first spoken word in this movie is Hill addressing Fury as "Nick."
  • The song Happy plays while Peter is designing his new suit is "Back In Black" by AC/DC, the same song that is played during the opening of Iron Man (2008). Hilariously, Peter mistakes the band to be Led Zeppelin, whose "Immigrant Song" was prominently featured in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
