Spider-Man

Visible crew/equipment: When Spider-Man is rescuing Mary Jane from falling to her death from the balcony, he catches her and spins his web to the balcony to save her and they bungie to just inches from the ground. As they are preparing to bounce back up the shot rotates 90 degrees and you can see the counter weight that pulls them back up coming down to the ground. It's a weird one, this - there's a sound effect as the weight comes into view, so it's meant to be there (or else the sound's just a cover), but it can't be anything he attached his web to, as it was stuck straight onto the balcony. If it's falling, they should be too - his web's not pivoting around anything. (01:06:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When Peter wakes up and discovers he can't see through his glasses, you can see a phantom hand on the left sliding out of view in the mirror. This happens the last time Peter tries to see through his glasses. It's not a reflection of his hand due to the angled edge - it's on the main part of the mirror. (00:18:05)

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.
