Sex & Nudity

  • Aunt May discovers MJ and Peter in Peter's bedroom, with Peter standing in his suit stockings as he gets out of his Spider-Man top. May mutters to be safe (this isn't even in the subtitles), but that was never their intention.

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Spider-Man beats up Green Goblin at the end of the film as an act of revenge. He goes to kill him but is stopped by Peter 2.
  • Aunt May is killed by the Green goblin. Blood is seen on her face and on Peter's hand when he searches on her. Very emotional.
  • Spider-Man gets stabbed by the Green Goblin but he survives. It initially serves as a small jump scare but ends up being slightly comedic when Spider-Man says "I've been stabbed before".
  • Peter fights The Green Goblin in Happy's apartment. Heavy punches are thrown.
  • Near the middle, there is a brutal fight between Spiderman (Tom Holland) and Norman Osborn, which Spiderman loses. Near the end, Peter and Aunt May get seriously injured, resulting in Aunt May's death. This is probably the bloodiest spiderman fight ever.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • In the mid-credits scene, Eddie Brock/Venom are in a bar drinking and claim to be drunk.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The introduction of The Lizard is accompanied by a sudden jump scare of him trying to break out of his cell. Funny but scary.
  • While the first half of the film maintains a fairly light-hearted atmosphere, the death of May at the hands of the Green Goblin marks a noticeable change in mood, with Peter expressing an urge to kill him in revenge for her death, punching him relentlessly later in the film and almost stabbing him with his own glider. While he doesn't go through with it, some younger audiences may be disturbed seeing Spider-Man want to murder someone.
  • Near the middle of the film, there is a fight with Green Goblin where Peter loses. Green goblin throws a pumpkin bomb that severely injures Peter and Aunt May, and she tragically dies in a long, drawn out scene. This pushes Peter to the edge and will upset some viewers.
  • There's a scene where Spider-Man is fighting Green Goblin at Happy's Apartment. Spider-Man was punching Green Goblin multiple times, but Green Goblin appears to be unfazed smiling and laughing scary like at Spider-Man. This can seem very discomforting for some audience.
  • Dr. Strange casts a spell at the end of the movie that makes EVERYONE forget Peter entirely after Peter requests it. He then sees Ned and M.J. but doesn't remind them who he is and then sees Happy and doesn't say anything. Peter is not known by anyone at the end. This is very depressing.
  • The Green Goblin is a very sadistic person and a very creepy and uncomforting character. The rest of the villains, while definitely menacing, are very tame compared to him.
  • In the middle of the movie, Peter and Norman have a short but brutal fight in Happy's apartment. At one point Peter is punching Norman and after every punch Norman is seen smiling and laughing very creepily. Very horror-like and very creepy for younger viewers.
