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.
The human government develops a cure for mutations, and Jean Gray becomes a darker uncontrollable persona called the Phoenix who allies with Magneto, causing escalation into an all-out battle for the X-Men.
In the 1960s, superpowered humans Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr work together to find others like them, but Erik's vengeful pursuit of an ambitious mutant who ruined his life causes a schism to divide them.
Peter Parker has finally managed to piece together the once-broken parts of his life, maintaining a balance between his relationship with Mary-Jane and his responsibility as Spider-Man. But more challenges arise for our young hero. Peter's old friend Harry Obsourne has set out for revenge against Peter; taking up the mantle of his late father's persona as The New Goblin, and Peter must also capture Uncle Ben's real killer, Flint Marko, who has been transformed into his toughest foe yet, the Sandman. All hope seems lost when suddenly Peter's suit turns jet-black and greatly amplifies his powers. But it also begins to greatly amplify the much darker qualities of Peter's personality that he begins to lose himself to. Peter has to reach deep inside himself to free the compassionate hero he used to be if he is to ever conquer the darkness within and face not only his greatest enemies, but also...himself.Written by

Several scenes show police officers having an "N.Y.P.D. Police Department" patch instead of the actual patch which would read "Police Department, City of New York". In addition, the real police officers (non actors) can be seen wearing the genuine patch in scenes filmed on location in New York. See more »
It's me! Peter Parker! Your friendly neighborhood... You know. I've come a long way from becoming the boy who was bitten by a spider. Back then, nothing seemed to go right for me, and now...

During the opening credits, snippets from the first two films can be seen. Also, some of the filmmaker's names appear and then blow away, as if made of sand. The black symbiote also makes a brief appearance. See more »
In 2017, in anticipation for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony released an "Editor's Cut" of Spider-Man 3. This cut mostly utilizes an unused score, alternate edits of scenes, a restructured story, and scenes both added and removed throughout. With all of these changes, this version runs 2 minutes shorter than the theatrical version. See more »
I forgive you - decent not a bad superhero movie that everyone is saying underrated
This was a decent third sequel in Spider-Man trilogy it was not bad like everyone was saying that it was horrible it was not. I like this movie just like I like Spider-Man 2 it has drama, sci-fi elements and action in it. The movie is like Superman III get's crap on it, for no good reason, I always liked this film. It is not better than Spider-Man 1 and 2 but it is in lighter category decent - underrated.
I like the bond between those three leads Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco. This movie is about revenge, transformation in to bad Spidey on a dark side. It has dark tone and it has redemption by the end of the movie. Sam Raimi returned with direction of the third movie in which he helped to write a script with his brother Ivan and Alvin Sargent who wrote a script for Spider-Man 2. Spider-Man at least did not kill Gwen Stacy like he did in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and than Garfield wined like some school kid over his toy. So yea I like this movie it is a decent Kirsten Dunst is still excellent as Mary Jane Watson she is jealous on Peter/Spider-Man but I like that in the movie. I like the soundtrack playing on the end of credits: Signal Fire by Snow Patrol.
I like the action sequences in which Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) in black suit fights Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) in underground station I like the sequence in which Spider-Man glues on trains, I like that so much. I like Spider-Man in black suit hanging on a church I like that sequence. Spider-Man fights off Venom (Topher Grace) and he fights with Sandman while trying to help Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst). I like Harry Osborn in which he turns in to New Goblin but helps out Peter fighting two monsters, I like that in the movie. He blamed Peter for his father's death but on the end he helped out his best friend Peter.
In my opinion those trio did a good job respectfully playing their characters: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco like they are actually friends. Topher Grace as Eddie Brock / Venom was perfect bad guy too me, just like right from the comic books. They filmed now Venom (2018) with Tom Hardy how will that movie work without Spider-Man? I have no idea but I will check that movie out. Bryce Dallas Howard as Gwen Stacy was to me better than Emma Stone. Bryce didn't look like some rich model she was a normal girl a classmate from Peter Parker and I like that in the movie. I like Bryce Dallas Howard in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) who also gets crap for it and I like her in this movie a lot.
I know people complained because there were too many villains in it and because Peter was dancing. They did not like the Twist dancing in which Harry and Mary Jane dancing. I did not mind anything in the film and I like it. It is hell way better than The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2. Spider-Man 3 is underrated. I forgive you - means in the movie after Peter finds the real killer of his uncle Ben the guy apologized and Peter forgives him, because that's what he does Spider-Man doesn't kill people he saves them.
