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)

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man catches Mary Jane as she falls off the balcony, in the shot from above there are two columns lying on the ground - one on the right as we look at it, a few feet from the red area and parallel to it, and one on the left at an angle. In the shot of them landing, the one closest to the red area has disappeared. (01:06:50)

Continuity mistake: At the World Unity Festival, Peter is taking pictures. When he looks up at Harry and M.J. on the balcony, his camera, which has been your average "right handed" camera throughout the film, magically becomes a "left handed" camera. The shot's obviously been reversed - his parting's on the wrong side as well. (01:02:10)

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker is walking behind Mary Jane, just after they both leave for school, and Mary Jane's father is yelling at her on the street, you see the yellow bus approaching behind them, with no car in front of the bus. As the camera angle changes, you see a black convertible pull up to pick up Mary Jane, and it arrives before the bus, even though the car was nowhere to be seen a second prior. (00:19:15)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film in the scene with Aunt May and Uncle Ben talking, Uncle Ben picks up a green plate. When he goes to pick it up, there are books, or something, resting by the microwave, which changes position between shots. (00:12:30)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when we see Norman Osborn offer Peter his hand, if you watch he offers his hand twice. (01:44:20)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Spider-Man is beating up the Green Goblin against a wall, Green Goblin reveals himself, and suddenly the distance from Spider-Man has changed from being really close as in face to face, to about 2 foot away. (01:43:25)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: During the fight scene at school, the food that was just on Flash's back disappears.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film when we see Peter waking up and reaching for his glasses, in the previous shot he didn't have the blanket on him or over his shoulders, it's in the background on the floor, yet when he reaches for his glasses the blanket is on his shoulders. (00:17:05)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter runs into Mary Jane leaving her job at the diner, when she says "some dream, huh?" she wraps her jacket around her and folds her arms. After a brief cut of Peter her jacket's open - she then says "don't tell Harry", wraps her jacket around herself and folds her arms again. (00:55:45)

Continuity mistake: When Jameson is talking about the headlines regarding Spider-Man, the pencils in the cup keep changing positions between shots. (00:56:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the street, right after the crook escapes with the wrestling money, Peter is standing watching all the people rush to his uncle Ben - there is a girl wearing a black leather jacket, white shirt and black go-go boots walking with 2 guys. When Peter runs to his uncle, she is behind him. When Peter pushes through the crowd, the girl is already there, to the right of the shot. (00:41:25)

Continuity mistake: When the part of the balcony where Mary-Jane is starts to break, there's a lamp on it. It vanishes the following shot, then reappears some shots later. (01:07:05)

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, we see the bus driving on the right side of the road. When the shot goes to the guy eating the doughnut, look outside the window and the bus is about 2 feet (if that) from the curb. Yet, when we see Peter in the rear view mirror, there are now a lot of cars parked at the curb that we didn't see in the previous shot. (00:03:35)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is practising throwing spider webs in his bedroom, his first attempt hits a model rocket and it breaks in many pieces. A few shots later when he finally hits the Dr. Pepper can, as he whips it across the room you can see the rocket back in one piece, just leaning against the wall. (00:33:15)

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: When Peter and his uncle are talking in the car, they are parked on the side of a one way street, with their car in the same direction as the traffic, but when the camera is on the uncle, you can see cars going in the opposite direction reflected in the windows behind him. (00:33:10)

Continuity mistake: When Osbourne is on the table with the wires attached to his chest they go from both pointing to about 2 o'clock, to both nearly being vertical, to being one vertical, one angled, then just before he bursts out, the one of the left's pointing down. (00:15:30)

Continuity mistake: This is towards the end of the scene where Mary Jane had an encounter with the thugs and Spider-Man comes to save the day. After beating up the thugs, Spider-Man leaves through some dark alley way and Mary Jane looks around to find him. Suddenly, Spider-Man comes down his web, upside down, along a wall. She's about 3 feet away when he starts speaking, but when the angle changes and she jumps around she's right in front of him. (01:17:15)

Continuity mistake: In the final fight scene, between Spider-Man and Green Goblin, when Spider-Man goes down, suddenly Green Goblin has a kind of weapon on his hand, when in the rest of the fight scene he had nothing. (01:46:55)
