Posted in one of his Instagram stories, Boyega revealed that Ridley gave him a prop from one of the Amazing-Spider-Man films. The image is of a vial bearing the Oscorp logo. Although it's hard to say for certain, the prop looks similar to the Reptilian antidote Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey created to cure Dr. Curt Conners, who had transformed into the Lizard. The scratches and cracked glass may have been caused by the Lizard's claws during his fight with Spider-Man.
Regardless of exactly what role this vial of serum played in the movie, Boyega clearly appreciated his co-star's gift. "That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for," he wrote, reposting the film's first official image from earlier in the day. "What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. JJ thank you for making my dreams come true."
