Visible crew/equipment: When the fire breaks out in the building, as the firetruck goes by you can see the reflection of the camera crew on the truck, including a man wearing a white shirt. (01:22:00)

Other mistake: In the scene after Spider-Man stops the convenience store robbers, it shows a newspaper article. This article virtually repeats itself. Here's what you can read: "Witnesses claim an unknown masked man was seen exiting the Ling Deli after stopping two suspects from attempting to rob the establishment. Police spokesman John Young said "we've heard of Samaritans, but in 20 years I've never seen anything like this." The two suspects were taken to the county jail....(cutoff)....attempting to rob that same establishment. Police spokesman John Young said "we've heard of Samaritans, but in 20 years I've never seen anything like this." The two suspects were taken to the county jail." (00:52:25)

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)

Audio problem: When the Green Goblin gases Spidey after crashing through Jameson's office window, you see him fall and hear him almost immediately hitting the ground even though the window is several stories up. I think it is the sound of him falling onto the stunt mat. (01:15:35)

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)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film just before Norman Osborn's glider zooms in and kills Norman, Norman is standing right by the hole in the wall, yet when the glider hits him, he has moved quite some distance to his left and is now at a large part of the wall. (01:44:40)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter is following MJ up the street, there are two cars and a jeep in the background. When Flash picks up MJ and speeds away, Peter runs from in front of the jeep, which was further down the street. Also there is now only one car in front of the jeep, instead of several. (00:19:10)

The-Immortal

Audio problem: When one of Bonesaw's blond hench-women gives him a crow-bar to hit Spidey with, you hear her say "Kick his spider ass," but her lips don't match with what she is yelling. (00:40:00)

Continuity mistake: The Green Goblin is impaled by the knives on his glider which are shown after they have punched through him and the brick wall, but there is no blood on them. (01:49:50)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the students are in a museum, we see a spider pulling up a sack of crickets. The sack changes position between shots. (00:07:00)

Revealing mistake: Peter Parker climbs his first wall in an alleyway. Look carefully at his shadow - it is directly in front of him on the wall the whole time, indicating that he is being lit from directly behind. The only thing behind him is the opposite wall. The only possible light sources would be from the opening of the alleyway (which would have cast a long shadow to his left) or from above (which would have cast a long shadow behind him). (00:24:50)

Other mistake: After Uncle Ben gets shot, he is clutching his wound. When Peter shows up, they hold hands until Uncle Ben dies, yet there is no blood on Peter's hand. If Uncle Ben were just covering a gun shot wound, wouldn't there be blood on his hand, which would then be on Peter's? (00:42:00)

Revealing mistake: In the final punch-up, shortly before Osborn reveals himself, Peter pulls the Goblin to his feet and pushes him against a large foot/foot and a half thick brick wall, which wobbles. (01:43:20)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the Unity Festival scene just after we see Peter taking a picture, it cuts to Macy Gray, in the first shot she is not holding onto the mic stand, yet in the following shot she is. (01:02:00)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter has just seen MJ leave her house for school and is walking along the pavement by the cars following her, he stops when she does and practises talking to her. Look behind him. You can see the bus turning the corner and coming nearer to them. The shot stays on Peter when the bus rounds the corner, cuts to Mary Jane and then goes back to Peter. The bus would have been much nearer than it was in the second shot at the speed it's going. (00:20:00)

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film the Green Goblin programs his glider to fly at Spider-Man, Spidey jumps out of the way and the glider continues to fly at the Green Goblin. You see a shot of the Green Goblin throwing his hands up next to his head, then a close-up shot of his face where he says "oh" but there are no hands. Then in the next shot from further away his hands are back by his head. (01:49:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Spider-Man has saved MJ from the thugs, after they kiss she peels his mask back, note she is right next to his face, yet in the following shot she is much further away from his face. (01:18:20)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Peter Parker goes up to his room, about to become Spider-Man, there's a sudden close-up of his face and his fringe looks different.
