Continuity mistake: Before the cop climbs on the truck, he shields himself on the truck's cabin and you can easily notice the tarp is perfectly tied by a dozen strings. When he climbs up, all the knots magically untie and he manages to pull the tarp away. His buddy couldn't have done it because he always appears with the gun in his hand, covering him.

Revealing mistake: When Spidey is placing the tubes around Venom, his face is obvious CGI except for some shots of him shouting. Here, a real face (twice as big as it should) has been pasted on the CGI body, looking quite ridiculous.

Revealing mistake: When Peter and Harry are fighting into the Goblin's lair, stunt cables are visible on their backs holding them.

Plot hole: Flint Marko has his whole body turned into sand including his belt buckle and any other metal he happens to be wearing. If all of this turned into sand then why was the locket intact without it turning into sand as well?

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: Was Spider-Man's identity ever made public at the end of this movie? He was without his mask several times during the final battle and there were a lot of cameras, so...?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: There's no evidence to suggest that his identity was compromised at any point.

Answer: The fight between Sandman, Venom and Spider-Man was high up on a construction site so nobody watching the action from ground level would be able to see his face.
