Chosen answer: I own a copy of a book, "Behind the Mask of Spider-Man" . It details nearly every aspect of the making of the movie. It'd probably be hard to find in stores now, but websites that sell books may still have it. I know Amazon does.

Question: Was it really Tobey's body both times in the mirror?

Answer: Yes, he worked out a lot to get into that condition. On the DVD commentary, Raimi states that one of the first scenes shot was where Tobey takes off his shirt and is not in great shape while one of the last ones shot was the one in the mirror you are referring to.

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 he 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: 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 creative decision on the part of Sam Raimi who said "I think it's more believable that the web is organic rather than a kid making a glue 3M can't make."

Question: This might possibly a mistake. When the thief was chased by the police, they were right behind him. He entered a building and suddenly they weren't anymore. Only several minutes later they appeared. So my question is. What happened here?

Answer: The police were likely setting up a perimeter and waiting for backup before sending officers in to make sure he didn't escape. Hence, later you see police boats and whatnot.

Answer: Sticky Rice (the thief) lost the pursuing officers when he ran into the warehouse and hid there; he was subsequently tracked down by Spider-Man who captured him for the police.
