Continuity: In the scene where Marco falls into the sand molecular chamber, if you watch closely when Marco looks up in one shot you can see he is wearing a chain around his neck, yet in the following shot when the lights come on the chain has gone, and then the shot changes to the scientists, then back to Marco where the chain has reappeared on his neck.
Continuity: During the final fight scene, Spiderman is talking to Mary Jane while Harry is flying around. There is a shot of the Sandman about to clap his hands together around Harry. As the scene cuts to Spiderman taking off to save Harry and cuts back, Sandman's hands are much farther apart than they were before the cut.
Continuity: During the scene on the bridge where MJ breaks up with Peter, MJ's hair is tied behind her head with a few wisps hanging down and her ears visible whenever she is shown from behind. However, whenever MJ is shown in her own close-up during the same conversation, her hair is down loosely and her ears are completely covered up.
Continuity: In the scene where Peter asks Harry to help rescue M. J. (from Venom and Sandman), a sitting chair appears to the left of the painting of Harry's father in the last shot of Harry. There was no chair in the other shots of this scene. The sitting chair was by that painting for all of the movie except those few shots.
Continuity: There are several scenes in the film where Peter's 'Spider-Man' costume can be seen sticking out from the top of his shirt, both the 'normal' red/blue version and the black symbiote version. The spider chest-emblem is visible in each of these scenes, but the emblem is smaller and much farther up the front of the costume, almost near his neck. Invariably, whenever he switches into full 'Spider-Man' costume, the emblem has reverted to its original much-larger size and is much farther down the front of his chest, level with his pecs.
Continuity: When Jameson kicks out one of his employees from his office for coming up with another stupid idea, Brock sneaks in through the door into his office, but if you look at the black guy in the office he is holding a piece of paper in his right hand and his other hand is in his pocket, yet in the following shot from inside the office, the black guy is now holding the piece of paper with both hands.
Continuity: In the scene where MJ and Peter are talking in Peter's apartment about her review of her performance, in the first shot we can see all of MJ's hair is at the back, but in the following shot a huge portion of her hair is now over her right shoulder, this happens between shots and we don't see her flick it over her shoulder.
Continuity: In the middle of the film when Ursula tells Peter that MJ called back, when she first enters Peter's apartment he is sitting at the computer, look closely here, there is no framed picture of MJ standing against the computer, yet in the following shot a framed picture of MJ has appeared standing up against the computer.
Continuity: Before the cop climbs on the truck, he shields himself on the truck's cabin and you can easily notice the tarp is perfectly tied by a dozen strings. When he climbs up, all the knots magically untie and he manages to pull the tarp away. His buddy couldn't have done it because he always appears with the gun in his hand, covering him.
Continuity: During the battle among Venom, Sandman and Spider-Man, we see a news reporter with an English accent. She is narrating the fight, standing to the immediate right of her cameraman, who is pointing his camera skyward, at the fight. The reporter begins voicing her concern over the outcome. There is a cut to a TV showing the news report, where we see her finish her thought. Except we see a head-shot of her, and not the shot of the battle we should be seeing, considering the positioning of the camera.
Continuity: In the scene where Brock and Peter are in Jameson's office and Brock is talking about how he wants a staff job working for Jameson, Jameson waves his secretary out of his office. He starts smoking his cigar in his left hand, yet in the following shot he is now smoking his cigar in his right hand.
Revealing: In the shot just after Green Goblin is done dispersing both the super villains and offers his hand to help Spider-Man up, watch Green Goblin's face closely when he is first shown from a distance, when his face mask has just rolled up. The right side of his face, which is supposedly disfigured (due to his earlier fight with Peter in his flat), looks normal and smooth. Then in the following shot (after the camera goes back on to Green Goblin from Spider-Man lying down looking at him) when the camera shows Green Goblin from close (while Spider-Man slowly gets up at the forefront), his face is shown disfigured again.
Continuity: From the truck, Sandman boosts some cars away. One of them goes zooming straight against a corner on the left side of the street. When the angle changes, not only has the car changed positions to the center of the street, but a man and a car appear perfectly intact and calmed on the same spot where the car was before.
Continuity: In the scene where Brock is in Jameson's office showing him the picture of Spider-Man, Peter walks in and hands Jameson a picture, in this shot we can see Brock looking at the picture of what Peter took, and in the following shot Brock is looking directly at Peter asking him "how did he get that high".
Continuity: In the scene just after Harry regains his memory and his father tells him "first we attack his heart", we see MJ at the door of her apartment, in the first shot you can see that her handbag is on her left shoulder but in the following shot from a distance her handbag is now on her left forearm.
Continuity: When we see Peter riding on his scooter after just visiting Aunt May and telling her he's going to ask MJ to marry him, we can see that Peter is wearing his safety helmet with the strap fastened under his chin, yet when the hobgoblin knocks him off of his scooter and into the air the helmet can be seen flying away like it wasn't even fastened up and secure.
Continuity: During the crane incident scene when Gwen is holding onto the telephone you can see her sliding down the damaged office floor with her legs almost over the edge, yet in the following shot when the phone's cord snaps, she is a lot further up the office floor and slides down again to the edge.
Continuity: When Venom blows the cab's roof, there's a back shot of the cab from above and MJ is nowhere to be seen. The shot is clear and long enough to show the back seats. Furthermore, MJ is wearing a white shirt and, since it's night time, there's enough contrast to show that she is not crouching, nor hiding, but is simply missing from the CGI shot.
Continuity: In the scene where there is a crane accident and they can't shut down the power, the police chief arrives on the scene, watch closely behind him, the police car that pulls up has its back window down, we can see this because a cop has his hand on the doorframe, yet in the following shot the window is up.
Continuity: When Peter is visiting Harry in the hospital you can see behind Peter an admissions desk with a computer, files etc., yet when Peter and MJ leave Harry at the request of the nurse, the admissions desk has vanished and has now turned into just a plain long corridor with rooms to other patients.
Continuity: In the scene where Spider-Man is receiving the key to the city just after he kisses Gwen, we see MJ walk away and Harry standing next to her asking if she's okay, in this shot we can see her handbag has slid down her arm and is resting on her forearm, yet when the sandstorm breezes through, the angle cuts to the back of MJ and Harry and in this shot we can see the handbag is still on her shoulder.
Continuity: At the very beginning of the film when we first see Peter, 4 kids stand beside him and watch Spider-man on the big screen. Watch closely when they walk away, the little girl walks off first followed by the 3 boys, yet in the following shot the girl is at the very back with the 3 boys leading the way.
Continuity: During the Peter/Harry fight at the beginning of the film, when Peter retrieves the ring from the air and then falls onto a rooftop, if you watch closely the large air vent moves from being from Peter's right out of shot, and when the shot changes to him starting to run, the air vent is now much further behind him.
Continuity: In the scene where we first see Jameson sitting at his desk watching the other guy explaining something on the whiteboard, Jameson's cigar keeps constantly changing between shots from being in his mouth, to being in his fingers and being in the ashtray, all this happens when Jameson's secretary first interrupts him and tells him to watch the anger.
Continuity: In the scene where Gwen sees Peter in the restaurant she places one hand on his shoulder. The camera cuts to Gwen's face and she has both hands clasped together in the shot. The shot cuts back out and her hand is instantly down on Peter's shoulder. It cuts back to Gwen one more time and both of her hands are back up near her face.
Continuity: The first time we hear MJ's answering machine message, she says something along the lines of "Sing your song after the beep, 'beep'" then we hear the electronic beep. The second time it sounds exactly the same, so she hasn't re-recorded it, except this time her message cuts off before she makes the beeping sound.
