- According to designer Mark Stafford, 60 characters were considered to be in the set. Some of the characters were Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Vulture, Deadpool, Human Torch, Iceman, and Spider-Woman.
- Gwen Stacy, Ben Urich, Robbie Robertson, Betty Brant, Black Cat, Daredevil, The Punisher, Blade, Firestar, Amber Grant, Bernie The Cab Driver and Ron Barney are exclusive to this set and this set also marks the debut as minifigures.
- While the minifigure selection takes inspiration from several iterations of the franchise, the building itself (particularly the marquee) is based primarily on the 2018 video game Marvel’s Spider-Man.
- With Firestar's appearance in this set, it is the first time since 2017's 76073 Mighty Micros: Wolverine vs. Magneto to have a mutant in a set, and the first set to introduce a new mutant in general since 2014's 76022 X-Men vs. The Sentinel.
- The Punisher is absent from all promotional images in this set except for the image on the box, and LEGO stores were asked not to include him in displays. The reason for this is currently unknown. One reason could be cause his abundance of violent imagery in his appearance in the comics. Another reason is the controversy surrounding his Logo.
