* ActorAllusion:
** Jared Harris's character (along with his KGB counterpart) ends a meeting by signaling for everyone else in the cafe to leave as well. He did the same thing as Professor Moriarty in Ritchie's previous film ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows''.
** Creator/HenryCavill ([[Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse Superman]]) refers to Kuryakin as "Super Agent".
* CastingGag:
** Kuryakin is played by Armand "Armie" Hammer whose great-grandfather, also named [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armand_Hammer Armand Hammer]], was closely tied to the Soviet Union.
** Creator/HenryCavill tried out for the role of James Bond in ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006''. He lost out to Creator/DanielCraig, but now is playing another character created by Creator/IanFleming.
** A WhatCouldHaveBeen variation. Creator/JonHamm was one of the actors considered for Solo; had he been cast, we could’ve seen [[Series/MadMen Don Draper taking orders from Lane Pryce]].
