Violence & Gore

  • A man falls into a pool of electric eels and we see the aftermath later on where the man has toasted skin and booze. He later peels it off and becomes into the villain known as Electro
  • A man injects a spider venom on himself. We clearly see his bones move through his body in closeup, his teeth change and his physicality is monstrous. He screams and moans in pain.
  • The final battle between Spider-Man and Electro is very large, loud and intense. No blood is shown. Electro is later exploded by energy overcharge transmitted by Gwen.
  • The final battle between Spider-Man and Green Goblin is perhaps the shortest but most violent and intense fight in all Spider-Man movies. Lots of punching, kicking and chocking.
  • Gwen falls down a tower and smashes the back of her head onto concrete onscreen and then breaks her back from Spider-Man's web trying to pull her up. We clearly hear a snap and crash. We see her corpse pale white and blood lingers from her nose.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • During Harry Osborn's transformation into the Green Goblin, lights flicker making it dramatic and may be frightening for younger viewers
  • The appearance of Electro and Green Goblin can be scary and frightening for young viewers.
  • The final battle between Goblin and Spider-Man is very intense.
  • Gwen falls a long way and dies, this may upset some viewers, especially younger ones.
  • Harry injects himself with a serum and transforms into the Green Goblin. We see a lot of body horror in this scene, with his bones moving and shifting in close-up, his fingernails elongating into sharp monster claws and his teeth becoming sharp and rotten. He then crawls to his equipment and we see him briefly one time as the Green Goblin, it is very scary and it' all accompanied with intense flashing. His appearence may frighten younger viewers and this is the most scary Green Goblin version ever shown.
  • When Peter cries over Gwen's dead body it's very emotional and upsetting.
