* ValuesDissonance: The morality of Tony Stark's creation of a private [[BigBrotherIsWatching global surveillance network]] and army of invisible, untraceable assassin drones that can be deployed within minutes is never disputed [[spoiler:until Mysterio gets his hands on it]]. This stands out even more given that ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' [[MoralDissonance pointed out]] that a similar form of unchecked power, Project Insight, was dangerous and unethical even in the hands of the "good guys".


** Spidey swings through New York City at the end, and we get a shot of Stark Tower... Obscured ''just'' enough to hide the new owner and keep the identity of the man a mystery. It's widely believed that the man who bought the building is none other than ComicBook/NormanOsborn. (A secondary faction has speculated the remodeled Stark Tower to be the new home of [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/FantasticFour the Baxter Building]].)

** Creator/JakeGyllenhaal was briefly slated to replace Creator/TobeyMaguire as the wall-crawler in ''Film/SpiderMan2'' after back problems and other circumstances called into doubt whether Maguire would stay on with the film, but he ultimately recovered and stuck with it. 15 years later, he's finally appearing in a ''Spider-Man'' movie... but as Mysterio. Gyllenhaal poked fun at this in an Website/{{Instagram}} video captioned "[[https://www.instagram.com/p/BrBLFmJgDEM/?hl=en I just realized I'm not playing Spider-Man.]]"

** [[https://imgur.com/a/VDO2mH4 This famous image]] from ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' shows [[spoiler:Spider-Man unmasking himself on live television as J. Jonah Jameson watches in shock. The characters are modeled after their actors from the Sam Raimi ''Spider-Man'' Trilogy[[note]]with Ted Raimi's Hoffman, who was exclusive to those movies, also watching along with Jameson[[/note]], with Jameson modeled after J.K. Simmons' portrayal of the character. Come this movie's mid-credits scene, and Simmons' Jameson directly assists in ''outing'' Spider-Man's identity.]]

Added DiffLines:

** After many fans complained about Peter getting all his equipment from Tony Stark instead of creating it himself as in the comics, the final act sees Peter use one of Stark's systems to build and customise his own suit, using his mentor's resources to build something all his own.

Added DiffLines:

** "Everywhere I go, I see his face."[[note]]This is the statement that Peter Parker says regarding the legacy of Iron Man. However, in a meta-twist it's also a jab by fans as to how in the following 2 months after the premiere of ''Film/AvengersEndgame'', Youtube's algorithm constantly bombarded their recommendations list with videos that feature Iron Man while having the trailer is being constantly spammed as an advertisement.[[/note]]


** Just how much did [[spoiler:Quentin Beck care for Peter Parker? There's no denying that Beck is manipulating him for his own ends, but at many points it seems like he genuinely doesn't want Peter to get hurt until he has no choice. He even yells at one of his men for getting sloppy and allowing Peter to find out the truth, which forces Beck to kill Peter and his friends to prevent the truth from getting out. On the other hand, when he ''does'' decide to kill Peter, he tries to do it in a gleeful manner, constantly taunting him and toying him with his past failures using his illusions, and in the end after knowing that he would lose, knowingly manipulates the masses to paint him as a hero and Peter as a villain, ruining Peter's life out of spite even when it achieves nothing for him as he lays dying.]]

** Nick Furry [[spoiler: who is actually Talos]] says that Doctor Strange is "unavailable". What could the Master of the Mystic Arts be doing that is more important than stopping a fire elemental burning the world? Go to it, fanfic writers!

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Much like the climatic fight between T'Challa and Killmonger in ''Film/BlackPanther2018'', some of the CGI used during the illusion sequence in Berlin is very obvious and looks more like a video game than a film. While most of it can be attributed to the fact that the setting visuals literally are a jarring CGI sequence [[spoiler:meant to mess with Peter's head through [[MindScrew absurd]] visuals and imagery so making things hyper realistic there probably wasn't really Mysterio's priority]], it doesn't fully justify the fact that the rendering for Spider-Man looks just like the rest of it when it should be more realistic, but even that can be mostly excused as the suits Peter "wears" for most of the scene were part of the illusion as well.

** Despite the post-credits scene of ''Homecoming'' hinting that Mac Gargan would form the Sinister Six to go after Spider-Man (only with Adrian Toomes possibly [[HeelFaceTurn declining participation]]), neither of them are even ''mentioned'' at all. Especially frustrating because, as mentioned below, [[spoiler:Jameson publicly revealing Spider-Man's secret identity renders the Vulture [[WhatYouAreInTheDark keeping it a secret]] pointless]].

** Posthumously, [[spoiler: Tony Stark]] for creating a massive intelligence gathering and [[AttackDrone drone deployment platform]] without oversight or safeguards built in, capable of rapid deployment for kill missions and ''very'' loosely interpreting the user's commands and not informing them until almost too late that it intends to kill the target, and it can be used to hack into [[BigBrotherIsWatching intelligence and personal data servers with ease.]] Then hand the whole thing over to a teenager naturally prone to selfish, impulsive behavior. He also made it so user friendly in the form of a pair of shades, so that it could easily be given to someone else to use as they saw fit, like [[spoiler: an insane former employee masquerading as a hero, so that he can use it to wreak havoc across an entire city.]]

* AssPull: [[spoiler:After making a big deal of Peter having to transfer use of E.D.I.T.H. over to Beck, he's then able to just take the glasses back and have control of her again without Beck doing the same thing. Given Tony's paranoia, it's not too hard to believe he programmed E.D.I.T.H. to be loyal to Peter no matter what, but either way, this issue is never addressed.]]

* HesJustHiding: [[spoiler:A number of people aren't fully convinced that Mysterio is dead at the end of the movie. After all, J.

There's also speculation that, with the possibility of an eventual Sinister Six storyline on the cards, that Mysterio would be one of their members.]]

** The horrible, ''[[StylisticSuck horrible]]'' memorial video that Peter's school shows during the mourning announcements in memory of the (non-dusted) Avengers who died in ''Infinity War'' and ''Endgame''[[note]]Tony Stark, Black Widow, the Vision, and Captain America (who's not actually dead, but ''is'' officially retired).[[/note]] complete with the most cliched Music/WhitneyHouston song imaginable, the words "InMemoriam" written in ''Comic Sans'', and stock footage that [[StockFootageFailure still has visible watermarks.]] It's so ''un''-respectful and utterly (yet believably) incompetent as an InUniverse memorial to the fallen characters that it's almost impossible not to laugh.
