Sony recently dropped the second trailer for the highly anticipated Spider-Man reboot, giving us a better look at Tom Holland’s portrayal of the wall-crawling superhero. The new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer was packed with scenes from the first one, but it did have some never-before-seen cuts, cameos, and Easter eggs as well which most viewers probably missed.

Whether you’re one of them or you just want more information about those hidden gems, we’ve listed what we know below. Keep reading!

Spider-Man: Homecoming Easter Eggs

1. Peter Parker is a NY Mets fan.

This isn’t a major Easter egg, but it still is worth pointing out. In the scene where Peter crawls on the ceiling, right before his friend Ned (Jacob Batalon) catches him, you can spot Mike Piazza‘s Hall of Fame pennant on the wall. Other fun stuff found in his room includes a bunch of Star Wars toys, like the LEGO Death Star which falls to pieces upon Ned’s discovery of Peter’s alter ego.

2. A featured license plate number makes reference to Vulture’s first appearance in the comics.

Twitter user Mike Sampson shared on the social networking site that the film’s big bad first appeared in the Amazing Spider-Man #2 comics, published in May 1963 (05/63). This is the same number that reads on a license plate of a car in the background when Spidey fought a few bad guys.

3. Michelle (Zendaya) reads a book that has a clever little connection to Spider-Man.

One scene where Peter and his classmates are in a gym, Zendaya’s character is reading Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham instead of paying attention to a video. The novel, which was released in 1915, isn’t about S&M, but an orphaned character named Philip Carey who was sent to live with his uncle and aunt.

4. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has a new company called Damage Control. 

Featured in the trailer in the form of news, Collider reports Damage Control is a construction company that would clean up the destruction left behind by super-powered battles. Director John Watts confirmed its existence and importance to the plot in a chat with Fandango:

You also wonder after all those huge messes are made, who’s sent in to clean up? Is it the normal people who would be hired to do something like that? Does it become a government operation? Is it dangerous? What do you do with all the alien body parts that you find? I really like asking those practical questions about this world, and then using that to drive the story

He may have been physically absent in the trailer, but we get to see Captain America through a vintage PSA. In another quick scene, the apparent henchmen testing out a weapon appear to include Logan Marshall-Green and Donald Glover. The trailer also shows Bokeem Woodbine as the villainous Shocker sporting Adrian Toomes’ (aka Vulture)  purple-tinted weaponry.

On Peter Parker’s side of things, there’s Aunt May(Marisa Tomei) and potential love interest Liz Allan (Laura Harrier).
