Spider-Man 3

Continuity mistake: When Spiderman lands Gwen and leaves, from the back shots her hair stirs violently because of the wind. From the front, it is nicely combed and the wind is not as strong.

Continuity mistake: In the shot just after Green Goblin is done dispersing both the super villains and offers his hand to help Spider-Man up, watch Green Goblin's face closely when he is first shown from a distance, when his face mask has just rolled up. The right side of his face, which is supposedly disfigured (due to his earlier fight with Peter in his flat), looks normal and smooth. Then in the following shot (after the camera goes back on to Green Goblin from Spider-Man lying down looking at him) when the camera shows Green Goblin from close (while Spider-Man slowly gets up at the forefront), his face is shown disfigured again.

Continuity mistake: Close to the middle of the film when Harry returns to his mansion with Peter, the butler hugs him on his left shoulder yet when the shot changes he's hugged him on his right, this is so you can see Harry's (James Franco) face not the butler's.

Continuity mistake: When Peter's looking at himself in the mirror in his apartment after yelling at the landlord, his hair's down in the first shot we see of him, but swept to one side when we see the reflection.

Continuity mistake: About to kill Venom, when Spidey is straining to break the web around his wrists, a fringe of hair falls on his face. A shot later his hair is combed and looks hair-dried.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brock is in Jameson's office showing him the picture of Spider-Man, Peter walks in and hands Jameson a picture, in this shot we can see Brock looking at the picture of what Peter took, and in the following shot Brock is looking directly at Peter asking him "how did he get that high".

Continuity mistake: When Peter is reanimating Osborn, Harry's head keeps swapping form looking upwards, sideways, slightly tilted. between shots. Peter's movements are not that brusque to produce the changes.

Continuity mistake: From the truck, Sandman boosts some cars away. One of them goes zooming straight against a corner on the left side of the street. When the angle changes, not only has the car changed positions to the center of the street, but a man and a car appear perfectly intact and calmed on the same spot where the car was before.

Continuity mistake: When Peter visits Harry at the hospital, Harry says: "The doctor says I had an accident". then he turns his head to the right, facing upwards. In the immediate angle he is still facing left.

Continuity mistake: When Sandman is down in the sewer, the stack of dollar bills on the right has no plastic wrap around. When the angle changes its green colour has faded and you can notice plastic securing the wads.

Continuity mistake: During the crane incident scene when Gwen is holding onto the telephone you can see her sliding down the damaged office floor with her legs almost over the edge, yet in the following shot when the phone's cord snaps, she is a lot further up the office floor and slides down again to the edge.

Continuity mistake: In the scene that Harry yells to Bernard (his butler) to get food because they are having a guest, the first shot of Bernard shows a small table with a vase of white flowers on it. In subsequent shots of the butler within this scene, the flowers are no longer on the table.

Continuity mistake: When the two models stare at the steel beam, there's an employee sitting next to the model with the green shirt. In the wide angle he dissapears. If he had run away he would've been seen because he was standing very close to her.

Continuity mistake: When the steel beam first crashes, Gwen lays very close to the side where it strikes. From the outside, she has moved way to the opposite side.

Spider-Man 3 mistake picture

Factual error: During the fight scene with Sandman in the armored car, the Terminal Tower can be seen in the background, which is a landmark in Cleveland, Ohio (where the scene was shot), not in New York City.

Harry: Looks like I came just in time.
Spider-man: Yeah, few seconds ago wouldn't have been so bad either.

More quotes from Spider-Man 3

Trivia: A great deal of Flint Marko/Sandman's storyline was edited out of the film by the studio due to the long run-time. One scene early in the film showed that the scientists who accidentally created Sandman were racked with guilt when they discovered they might have activated the machine with a person inside of it. Another scene had Sandman visiting a doctor researching his daughter's rare disease whom he had been corresponding with in prison. Yet another scene showed him following his daughter in a park, and morphing into a giant sandcastle that she plays with. And finally, his daughter was going to appear in the final battle, and would appeal to her father to stop hurting people and living a life of crime to get money, as she accepted that she was going to die no matter what. Her words would be what convinced him to seek forgiveness from Peter for accidentally killing Uncle Ben.

Question: Is there going to be a Spider-Man 4? And if so, who would be the villain?

Answer: At one point in time, Sony was set to make "Spider-Man 4" with director Sam Raimi and stars Tobey MacGuire and Kirsten Dunst. However, Raimi was unable to find a script he was satisfied with after many months of working with different writers, and he was having issues with the studio attempting to force the film into a 2011 release date, which he felt wouldn't give him the time he needed to make a quality film. Thus, he and the actors dropped out and the studio instead opted to go ahead with a reboot, in the form of The Amazing Spider-Man.
