Teen Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality, crossing his path with five counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities.

Miles, strangely, blames himself for 'being followed' to Aunt May's house, when by then it was public knowledge that May's nephew was Spider-Man.

Either way, it makes perfect sense to assume the villains would go to May's to find the Spider-Men they were pursuing.
There is a dedication in the closing credits to "Spider-Man" creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who passed away in 2018.
It is an image of Stan Lee's glasses with a quote: "That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero. Thanks to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, for showing us we're not the only ones."
