Corrected entry: In the final scene, with MJ and Peter in the cemetery, we can see a tombstone. The name on it is "Stacy, Gwen". Peter's girlfriend in the comics, killed by the Green Goblin.

Correction: Misconceived trivia: The name on the tombstone (assuming this refers to the one behind MJ) is something like "Rachel C Ewen".


Corrected entry: During the end sequence, Spider-Man originally did his final swing through the World Trade Center towers, landing on top of the tower with a flagpole on top. This was changed after September 11th so that he lands on the Empire State Building instead. However, during the pan around him after the landing, you can still see the Empire State Building, which he just landed on, in the background!

Correction: It is the American International building, which looks similar to the Empire State Building.


Corrected entry: In the beginning, when Peter runs out to catch the bus, he swings his backpack over his shoulder, but when he is seen running after the bus, the backpack has disappeared.

Correction: It's there - his top covers the strap from the front, but you can see it in the side shots.


Corrected entry: When you first see the cable car (at the end) it says Universal Pictures. When you see the car the second time, it says Roosevelt Line.

Correction: The car always says "Roosevelt Island".


Corrected entry: In the building fire, there are 2 windows still intact at Spider-Man's arrival. He busts out one by swinging through it, and when he leaves with the child there is an explosion which blows out the other window. Thus no windows should remain intact. But, when Spider-Man goes back into the building to rescue "the woman" (Green Goblin) he smashes through another window.

Correction: The other window is one storey up, and wasn't damaged by the explosion on the floor below.


Corrected entry: When Peter enters the wrestling arena and we see Bonesaw fly off the corner of the ring, the guy on the floor has his arm across his body/stomach. Yet, when Bonesaw flies through the air, you can see the guy on the floor move his arm ready for him to land on top of him. (00:35:20)


Correction: Where's the mistake? Wrestlers actually do that.


Corrected entry: Peter Parker practices web shooting for the first time in his bedroom. When Aunt May checks on him the webs criss-cross the room from wall to wall. Think about it... he's shooting the webs from his wrist. What we should have seen was several strings hanging from the walls. To get the room as we see it, every time he shot a string he would have to walk to the other side of the room and attach his end to the opposite wall. Not likely. (00:32:20)

Correction: He shot it to the first wall then kept the stream going until it hit the second wall without breaking the link, just aiming it at a different part of the room and then back and forth without stopping.

Spider-Man mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Peter shoots his web at his bedroom lamp and pulls it across the room, it smashes against the wall and breaks. But when Aunt May is talking to Peter from the door seconds later, the lamp is back on the dresser in one piece. (00:32:15)

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: How did webs come out of his wrist at the beginning in the cafeteria if he didn't do the gesture?

Answer: The gesture isn't to create the web, it's to actually shoot them. As such, if another method of drawing them forth is available, the gesture isn't needed. The fork's managed to get stuck to the exit point for his webs - we see what appears to be a small patch of a weblike substance, so presumably it's slightly sticky. Peter then pulls the fork, and in doing so is pulling the webs out from the spinnerets - so no need for the gesture in this case. When he then webs the tray on the next table, if you look closely, he's doing the correct gesture.
