When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with his father's former partner, Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard.
Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government must find a cure for the monster he emerges whenever he loses his temper. However, Banner then must fight a soldier whom unleashes himself as a threat stronger than he.
When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
Peter Parker is an unhappy man: after two years of fighting crime as Spider-Man, his life has begun to fall apart. The girl he loves is engaged to someone else, his grades are slipping, he cannot keep any of his jobs, and on top of it, the newspaper Daily Bugle is attacking him viciously, claiming that Spider-Man is a criminal. He reaches the breaking point and gives up the crime fighter's life, once and for all. But after a failed fusion experiment, eccentric and obsessive scientist Dr. Otto Octavius is transformed into super villain Doctor Octopus, Doc Ock for short, having four long tentacles as extra hands. Peter guesses it might just be time for Spider-Man to return, but would he act upon it? Written by
MJ's understudy is playing her part now, and better too MJ suspects. She imagines she'll get replaced, which came to pass in Spider-Man 3 (2007).
Harry uses a knife to kill Spider-Man, because it isn't traceable like a gun. It belonged to his father. When he unmasks Spider-Man, Harry wondered if Doctor Octopus was trying to fool him by bringing Peter instead. He also hopes that if Doc Ock succeeds with his experiment, the tritium explosion will destroy the half of the city that he's in.
Mary-Jane is shocked Harry would want to kill Spider-Man.
Doc Ock bound Spider-Man with wire from the train yard. When he brings him to Harry Osborn's, he cracked open the safe himself.
In the novelization, Doc Ock blamed Spidey for Rosemary's death.
Doc Ock doesn't throw any passengers at Spider-Man during the fight on top of the train.
The reason why the railway runs out of track is because the city was building an overpass above the train yard, but the money ran out and so it was never finished. Also, the engineer Donald O'Shea was about to retire. The way the scene played out in the book, Spidey uncoupled the passenger cart from the engine. He's not pulled as tight and at the end of it, one of the passengers removes his mask thinking they can cash in on him, much to the anger of the driver. One of the passengers even pelted the Green Goblin back in the first film. Spider-Man never regained consciousness throughout all this.

She looks at me everyday. Mary Jane Watson. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her. But she can never know. I made a choice once to live a life of responsibility. A life she can never be a part of. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man, given a job to do. And I'm Peter Parker, and I too have a job.

Well I saw the first and Thought .. OK, nice movie, but nothing special. So I wasn't looking much forward to the second one. Boy was I wrong.. The second one has it all... And I mean all. Suspense, romance, action and some quite nice Effects. Tobey Maguire is performing well, and Kirsten Dunst... wauw.... she is breathtaking...And only 22, so we can only hope to see more of her the coming years. Last but not least, Alfred Molina, who is the bad guy. He is very convincing and very very nasty. The computer-effects used are better than I have ever seen. Now you get the feeling of flying. I recommend all to see this movie, yes girls too. Remember.. movies are best in the cinema!
