A Note Regarding Spoilers

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.

For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Spider-Man 3 can be found here.

Yes, he's seen in the background at the funeral.

The suit has a will of its own. It didn't resist before because Peter took it off normally. It knew that Peter would eventually wear the black suit again. At the church bell tower, Peter was taking it off because he didn't want it. The suit sensed that, and resisted. As such, the symbiote knew that Peter wanted to throw it away, so even if Peter "acted normal" in his apartment and just dressed off, the symbiote would have put resistance. Throughout the film, the audience was shown that Peter kept the black suit on while engaging in reckless acts. Therefore, he was likely wearing it at the bar when he attacked MJ. After realizing his error and deciding to rid himself of the suit, he went to the nearby Church to do so. Actually, he finds that this is the perfect spot to get rid of the suit, because, as we can see in the ending sequence, the symbiote has one big weakness: sound. The bell made the symbiote weak, and helped Peter to "break it". This is the same method used by Spidey in the comics, but he uses it already knowing that weakness. Another answer can be like a reference to the 1994's "Spiderman: The Animated Series", when he accidentally found the weak of the Symbiote in a fight with Shocker in the The Alien Costume saga.

The answer is twofold; Eddie worked for the daily bugle and thus likely found out about Marko's escape and motives as the bugle was covering it. He then bonds with the symbiote which retains it's memories of it's time bonded with Peter including the fight in the subway.

Is Venom really dead?

Eddie Brock Jr. could be brought back for a sequel or spin-off. Additionally, the Symbiote is still alive in a couple places -- remember that Dr. Connors still has a piece of the Symbiote. It is widely believed that the Symbiote that Connors has will eventually bond with the yet-to-be-introduced character of Cletus Kasady to form Carnage, as was the case in the comics that Carnage was created in Venom's wake. It was recently announced in July, 2008 that there is now Venom spin-off in early pre-production that will follow Spider-Man 3. However, Topher Grace may not return for the role, as there have been several other hosts to the Venom Symbiote in the comics that could be used in a solo film, including the short lived Angelo Fortunato, and the Scorpion aka "Mac" Gargan. Eddie Brock, meanwhile, had the bits of Symbiote left over in his blood bond to his white blood cells, giving him a new white Venom-like suit. Along with a more altruistic attitude, Brock calls himself Anti-Venom. A potential spin-off could follow either of these plots. Source

The song playing during Peter's street-dancing scene was "People, Get up, and Drive Your Funky Soul"by James Brown. It is an edited version, though: the original was nine minutes and was featured on James Brown's 1988 album Motherlode. This version is two minutes and 24 seconds.

It is unknown at this time when or if it will be released. It is also unknown how long it will be. Sam Raimi has not made any statements about a Director's Cut although Columbia have been known to release extended director's cuts on DVD for other titles in the past including Spider-Man 2.1. If a Director's Cut DVD is ever made of this film it is likely to be called Spider-Man 3.1 . If a 3.1 DVD is made then it is likely to be released to coincide with the theatrical release of the reboot movie The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) just like when the 2.1 DVD came out to coincide with the theatrical release of Spider-Man 3. But the odds of this are slim, given that Amazing Spider-Man is the start of a new series.

When the film was completed the running time was set at 156 minutes on the IMDB page, then later reduced to 139 minutes. Therefore, about 17 minutes was cut from the final film. Note: Roeper and Lemire's review of the film presented the 156 minute (2hrs 36min) running time on screen, you can watch it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiKsz3Zg6AY .

There was going to be a fourth movie but the studio eventually scrapped it in favor of a reboot.
