- This movie marks the end of Tom Holland's contract with both Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, but he's said he's willing to extend it due to the fact that he wants to keep being Spider-Man.
- The teaser trailer released for Spider-Man: No Way Home beat the record for the world's most-watched trailer in its first 24 hours online. Globally it got 355.5M views. The previous record was held by Avengers: Endgame, which had 289M views in its first 24 hours.
- This film marks the first MCU trilogy to be directed by the same director, Jon Watts. All previous film franchises like Iron Man & Captain America had only two consistent directors throughout their trilogies.
- Tom Holland helped to save this movie from cancellation by forcing renegotiations between Sony and Disney. Under the terms of the new deal, not only does Spider-Man: No Way Home still take place within the Marvel Cinemetic Universe (MCU), but the MCU Spider-Man character can also appear in future MCU movies, as well as cross universes into Sony's own Spider-Man franchise.
- Tom Holland began filming the movie just two days after finishing his movie Uncharted (2022), however this film will be released before the latter.
- Because Sony has the rights to Spider-Man, Disney and Sony had originally reached a deal for Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019), whereby Marvel produced these movies for Sony under the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) banner. Sony kept full financial, distributive and creative control, while Disney received merchandising rights and a small percentage of the gross box office. However, in August 2019, Sony wanted to expand the deal with Disney under the original terms, which led to Disney exerting its right to back out of the next Spider-Man film. Sony, which had done well with Venom (2018) and especially Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), then announced that they would continue making the film within their own cinematic universe, outside of the MCU. However, due to negative fan reaction and after intervention of star Tom Holland, a new deal was eventually reached, with Disney investing into the film's budget in exchange for a higher box office percentage, and the movie remaining in the MCU.
- This will mark Jon Favreau's 10th involvement in the MCU after the Iron Man trilogy (2008-2013), The Avengers quadrilogy (2012-2019), and the Spider-Man films (2017-2021).
- In December 2020, multiple sources corroborated that Charlie Cox would be reprising his role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel. If true, this would be the first time a character from a Marvel property on Netflix appeared on the silver screen (Jarvis (James D'Arcy) from Agent Carter (2015) had already done so, but that was an ABC series). It would also be the first time Cox donned the costume since the Netflix show was canceled in 2018, and the first time the character of Daredevil appeared in a film since Ben Affleck played him in 2003. However, the rumor was later debunked.
- On February 23rd, 2021, Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, and Zendaya all posted images from the film along with three different titles on Instagram. Tom Holland's post titled it "Spider-Man: Phone Home". Jacob Batalon's post titled it "Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker". Zendaya's post titled it "Spider-Man: Home Slice". All the titles kept the use of the word "home" from the previous movies. The next day, a video with the three actors was released, showing Tom Holland walking out of Director Jon Watts' office, thinking he gave them another fake title. As they walk out, the official title was revealed on a whiteboard to be "Spider-Man: No Way Home" along with various titles that they were thinking of.
- It's the 27th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, originally meant to be the 28th in the series.
- When Peter Parker is suiting up on top of the car, there is a taxi cab behind him. The taxi's numbers read 1228. This is a reference to Stan Lee's birthday which is December 28, 1922.
- The third film was originally scheduled for release on July 16th, 2021 but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, on April 24th, 2020 it's release date was delayed to November 5, 2021, placing it on the original release date for the Disney distributed MCU film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). Three months later on July 23rd, 2020 it was delayed for a second time to December 17th, 2021.
- The address of the Sanctum Sanctorum in Doctor Strange is 177A Bleecker Street. In Spider-Man 2, the pizza place where Peter, portrayed by Tobey Maguire, is fired from is located at 233 Bleecker Street, less than a block away.
- Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) takes place directly after the events of Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019). Meaning that it takes place in the Spring/Fall of 2024.
- This is the second time that Alfred Molina has been cast in the role of Dr. Octopus. He first played the super-villain 17 years ago in Spider-Man 2 (2004).
- On August 24th, when the teaser trailer was released, Jon Watts, the director of the film, made an Instagram post displaying the trailer in the same 'phone inception style' shown in the leaked version. He captioned this post "The way the director intended", joking at the fact that it was leaked the day before.
- This will be the second Spider-Man film, after Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) that co-creator Stan Lee won't have a cameo in, since he passed away on November 12th, 2018; Avengers: Endgame (2019) was Stan Lee's final cameo.
- The first trailer has become the most watched trailer received 355.5M global views in its first 24 hours, surpassing the previous record-holder Avengers: Endgame, which drove 289M views.
- On August 22nd, the trailer of the movie was leaked on the internet. However, the special effects of the footage were not finished and the quality was low. The real trailer dropped just a few hours later.
- On 22nd August 2021 the trailer for the movie -- or some version of it was reportedly leaked online primarily on TikTok. Massive tweets and memes surfaced online in the wake of the leak. Various copies of the trailer have been removed by Sony Pictures on copyright grounds. Tom Holland himself appeared to address the leak with a simple but to-the-point message on his Instagram Story. "You ain't ready".
- The first MCU Phase 4 film to be shown in China. Previous Phase 4 theatrical entries Black Widow (2021), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) and Eternals (2021) were denied a release in that country.
- Jon Favreau's 7th MCU film as Happy Hogan following Iron Man (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Iron Man 3 (2013), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Avengers: Endgame (2019) & Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).
- Tom Holland's 6th MCU Film following Captain America: Civil War (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Avengers: Endgame (2019) & Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).
- For his appearance in the film, Alfred Molina was digital de-aged to make him appear as he had in Spider-Man 2 (2004) and his mechanical tentacles were created through CGI, rather than through puppetry like in the film.
- This will be the 8th live-action Spider-Man film following Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Spider-Man 3 (2007), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) & Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).
- To preserve the secrecy of film's production and to prevent their appearance from being leaked, Rhys Ifans, Thomas Haden Church and Willem Dafoe walked around the set with a cloak covering their costumes.
- Coincidentally, the film will be released in the tenth-year anniversary of the canceled Spider-Man 4. Spider-Man 4 was scheduled for a 2011 release.
- After the trailer's release, a rumor arose that Charlie Cox was returning as Daredevil in the film, reprising his role from the now-defunct Marvel Television-produced Netflix show. However, these rumors were first debunked by Cox himself, and later by the IMAX trailer of the film.
- On 17 April 2021, Alfred Molina who played Otto Octavius in 2004's Spider-Man 2, confirmed that he is returning for this movie to play the villain again after 17 years. He also elaborated as to how exactly his character is alive in this movie. In Spider-Man 2 he died of drowning after stopping the fusion reaction, but according to Molina, his character will somehow move into the multiverse right before he was supposed to die in Spider-Man 2, meaning he's still alive.
- Despite being released in July 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home already touched on the idea of the multiverse, that will be an important part of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Far From Home takes place the longest time after Avengers: Endgame (8 months), despite series' like WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki aired almost 2 years later in 2021, and except Loki, these series' takes place just a few months after the events of Endgame. Given that Far From Home also takes place after the events of Loki, in which the Loki variant famously enabled the multiverse, it means that Mysterio might not have lied, when he told Peter about the existence of the multiverse, or the multiverse was already enabled, and the movie just didn't clarify that on purpose until Loki was aired.
- Parts of the plot involving Spider-Man erasing his identity borrow heavily from the 2010 story arc "One Moment In Time" and the 2007 story arc "One More Day" both written by Joe Quesada.
