The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Visible crew/equipment: When the doctor wants to study Electro, a green screen and some other things are reflected in his glasses.


Factual error: Towards the end of the film, Spiderman takes his web and uses it to connect to the different power conduits that Electro blew open, ties them together, and power the city back up. Electricity uses several different wires, and crossing them would cause things to blow up or short out. What should have happened when Gwen threw the switch was another power failure, instead of the city's power being restored.

Continuity mistake: During the battle with Green Goblin, when Gwen Stacy is falling through the clock tower, there are many gears and other pieces falling with her. None of these are there when she and Spidey are at the bottom.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Spider-Man is chasing a truck stealing OsCorp's plutonium vials, the truck, driven by Aleksei Sytsevich, crushes one of the police cars. The scene cuts to the left side of the truck crushing the police car. A moment later, it cuts to another angle. Here you can see the camera equipment on the left side of the truck. (00:08:20)

Continuity mistake: After Peter gets his diploma and has a chat with Gwen, the sun changes between shots.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where after Peter gets his diploma and has a chat with Gwen, he is carrying a backpack on both shoulders. As the scene continues it switches to one shoulder then both several times.

Continuity mistake: Harry and Electro are in the office and confront the new CEO. Electro shocks him, and he falls to the floor. The first shot of him is clearly not the same actor, because the man on the floor has a full head of hair. The second shot it's the original CEO, who is mostly bald.


Continuity mistake: When Gwen is giving her speech, in the background are two boats passing. In the next shot they disappear.


Continuity mistake: When Stan Lee is in the audience of the school ceremony, in the close up somebody is on his left but in the open view that person is gone.


Continuity mistake: When Aunt May is about to do the laundry she gives Peter a sandwich with a large piece of lettuce in it, but in the following shots the lettuce disappears.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where the power is out and two planes are on a collision course with each other, the microphone of one of the air traffic controllers changes from a correct position facing his mouth, to an incorrect position hanging way down and away from his mouth, between shots.

Other mistake: After Electro gets the two cables on his chest, his clothes do not burn and have no marks.


Other mistake: After Electro disappears in the asylum then comes back, the underwear and the electrodes should be gone by then.


Continuity mistake: While Rhino is getting webbed by Spidey on the street, the sun changes between shots.


Other mistake: The main events of the film presumably take place in May, since we see Peter and Gwen graduate in the beginning. After Gwen's death, Peter is shown mourning through autumn and winter-like weather. However, near the end of the film, a news reporter says it's been only five months since Spider-Man disappeared. This would put the last fight with Rhino in October, and mean it snowed in the middle of summer.
