Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man is taking snapshots of the armored car burglary, one of the burglars says "watch the street". As the camera snaps you see them pointing rifles or machine guns towards the sky and when Spider-Man lands on them to dispatch them, the weapons are gone... (00:58:20)

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before the final fight between the Goblin and Spider-Man, Spider-Man gets knocked through a wall and rolls right up against another wall, but when the bomb flies in as he's getting to his feet, he's suddenly in a much more open area with no wall anywhere near him. (01:40:55)

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker runs into the alley and tests his wall-crawling for the first time, when he runs into the alley the wall he climbs is brick covered with dirty black soot/fungus. After he begins his climb it is completely brown. (00:24:50)

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker is chasing the school bus for the first time, the bus stops and it is entirely visible that there is nothing in front of the bus. When the camera is switched to the inside of the bus to show Peter stepping inside to apologize to the bus-driver, however, a tractor-trailer suddenly appears only yards from the front of the bus (visible through the windshield). Some road markings also appear. (00:03:50)

Continuity mistake: Jameson is sitting in his office when another man bursts through the door. Jameson jumps and turns to look at him twice- first in the wide shot, and again in his closeup.

Continuity mistake: After Peter punches Flash in the guts during the Flash/Peter hallway fight scene, in Mary Jane's closeup she looks surprised, and behind her on her right is a surprised guy wearing glasses. After Flash's friend says "Jesus Parker, you are a freak," and Harry says "Wow, that was amazing", the same guy suddenly appears on Mary Jane's left, looking happy and clapping. It cuts to a closeup of Mary Jane and the same guy appears back on Mary Jane's right, looking somewhat surprised again. (00:23:50)

Continuity mistake: In the cafeteria Peter web-slings a tray, with hardly any corn on the plate. Then Peter flips it onto Flash and suddenly there's a whole lot of corn on his back. (00:22:55)

Continuity mistake: At the end when Spider-Man dumps the brick wall on the Green Goblin, the wall is still in one piece after it's landed in the long shot, but when the angle changes, the wall's almost destroyed, and the Goblin pushes his hand up through rubble. (01:42:55)

Continuity mistake: During the bridge scene the wire supporting the tram/cable car was obviously anchored on the other end when the Green Goblin was holding it, because the car's suspended on a near horizontal line, with the regular support at one end and the Goblin on the other. All well and good, and even after Spider-Man grabs Mary Jane we see the car drop with the wire still looped through the pulley, both ends visible. In the next shot from above though, the other end of the wire's disappeared, and the car's now just hanging off a single cable which is attached to the top of the car. How'd that happen? (01:38:25)

Continuity mistake: When MJ kisses Peter in the cemetery, his head is leaning towards his left, and in the next shot, his head is leaning towards his right. (01:53:10)

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter accidentally flings the tray of food on Flash it hits him on the left shoulder but when Flash stands up the stain temporarily jumps over to his right shoulder. (00:23:19)

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter is trying to talk to Mary in the cafeteria you can see behind where he is standing there are numerous people and tables between him and the back wall. Peter then sits down and in the very next shot his table is one table away from the wall behind him. The shot may be lower but is from the same angle as before. (00:21:35)

Continuity mistake: When Mary Jane and Peter are talking in the street right after she left the diner, every time a car passes by behind her and then the camera goes to Peter, those cars would mysteriously vanish since you can clearly see that there are no moving vehicles behind him. (00:55:10)

Continuity mistake: In Jameson's office you can see a building across the street through the window, but when Spider-Man is gassed and falls out, a shot from the street shows Spider-Man falling from an extremely high building that has no other buildings near it. (01:14:25)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the building is on fire, you see a fireman (helmet has 57 on it) assisting in getting the residents out of the structure. Take notice that the fireman has an annoying strap hanging down from the top of his helmet. Eventually that strap disappears and a convenient microphone comes into focus. Stick around, because the microphone has a vanishing act too. (01:22:05 - 01:22:45)

Continuity mistake: When Peter shoots webs around his room and hits the rocket over, all that is on the nightstand is the cool light bulb lamp, the picture and the Dr. Pepper can. When it flips back to the nightstand again you can see some weird green alarm clock next to the overturned picture. (00:33:15)

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter is just getting to the science lab at the beginning right after his friend gets out of his fancy car, if you look at the extras walking behind the two, you will see a bright red haired girl walking by, going towards the building, but when the camera focuses on Peter the girl is there again, walking the opposite way on the other side of the huge sidewalk. You see her about 5 times going back and forth to the building. The first few times she's alone, then she's walking with another girl. (00:05:55)

Continuity mistake: When we see Spider-Man protect the armoured car and take out the thieves, we see that Spider-Man throws a robber over his head and the robber hits a wall. The following shot his position has changed lying on the floor. (00:58:35)

The-Immortal

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene in which Peter and Flash are fighting in the hall, Harry runs up to Mary Jane to see what is happening, seconds later Peter jumps up to avoid Flash's friend charging him from behind. In the shot of Peter flipping in the air, you can see that Harry is no longer standing next to Mary Jane, a girl in a blue sweater is. After Peter lands, the camera cuts back to Mary Jane and Harry is once again by her side. (00:24:25)

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Mary Jane is being mugged by four men, Spider-Man throws two of the men into two windows behind Mary Jane. The shot switches to Spider-Man beating up the other two guys. When it cuts back to Mary Jane the two windows are intact. (01:17:00)

Peter Parker: Not everyone is meant to make a difference. But for me, the choice to lead an ordinary life is no longer an option.

More trivia for Spider-Man

Question: What was Tobey Maguire's full process to get Spider-man's body? What was his body and fighting training and food diets? Is there any website where they have it in full writing?

Answer: The following is taken directly from People Magazine May 27, 2002: WORKOUT: Maguire exercised for at least 3.5 hours, six days a week, with his regimen varying "depending on how sore he felt," says Joujon-Roche. Mornings were spent improving his flexibility with yoga and splits, along with building strength through abdominal and lower-body exercises on an oversize ball. "We would just work on each body part until we killed it," Joujon-Roche says. "Then the next day we'd go to another and kill that one." Afternoons were devoted to cardiovascular activities like martial arts and cycling, to burn fat, plus gymnastics. "Tobey did his own flips with that Spider-Man hood on," says Joujon-Roche. "We gave him self-assuredness." DIET: For breakfast Joujon-Roche made the actor, a vegetarian, a "high-protein shake that included nuts, essential oils and vitamins." Lunch, he says, was often "marinated tofu with broccoli and walnuts and dinner a big veggie burger with brown rice." The menu varied with Maguire's output. "If his workout was pure weights," says Joujon-Roche, "he needed protein. If he did cardio, he'd have a shake of all carbs."
