Spider-Man

Question: In Spider-Man 2, Scott Spiegel makes an appearance as a man trying to steal a piece of pizza. Does anyone know what role he has in this movie?

Answer: He's the policeman that tells Peter 'we've got the place surrounded' when Uncle Ben's murderer falls to his death.

Question: I heard the Strokes were on the soundtrack with a song called When It Started. Does anyone know which scene this is in?

Answer: Some of the songs on the soundtrack were not in the movie. The soundtrack is made up of songs "from and INSPIRED by".

Question: Is it ever mentioned of what happened to Peter's parents and why he lives with his aunt and uncle? I've never read the comic books.

Answer: They died when he was young and moved in with Uncle Ben and Aunt May. He was lead to believe they died in a car accident but in fact they were spies who were believed to be traitors to the Russians (This was back in Cold War days), but Peter (as Spidey) cleared their name.

Question: Does Peter know that Norman is the Goblin before he takes his helmet off near the end of the movie?

Answer: It doesn't appear so, no. While he knows that Norman has been acting a little weirdly, it's a big leap from there to suspecting that Norman is the Goblin.

Question: How on earth did Peter create his Spider-man costumes?

Answer: He makes them himself in every other version. Its not outside the realms of possibility he made them in this one too. In the comics it says Aunt May taught him to sew.

Question: In the warehouse scene, we see Spidey hanging up-side down on a web. Then he sort of pulls it back into his wrist. How does he do that?

Answer: Because it grows out of his wrist, he has the control to contract it back in if he wants. Note that in the comics Spiderman actually made a sort of gluey string for his web, and in the film it's organic. This is a create decision on the part of Sam Raimi who said "I think it's more believeable that the web is organic rather than a kid making a glue 3M can't make."

Question: When they are having thanksgiving at Harry's and Peter's apartment, why does Norman get up and leave so quickly?What has come to his attention?

Answer: Seeing the cut on Peter's arm makes him realise that Peter is Spider-Man, as Spider-Man was injured in the same area earlier. He leaves either to stop himself losing control and/or to plan his next moves.
