More quotes from The Amazing Spider-Man

Trivia: Peter Parker falls through a roof and lands in a wrestling ring, where he gets the idea of using a mask, a homage to the original comic and the first Sam Raimi film, where Peter tests his spider powers by entering a wrestling match.

More trivia for The Amazing Spider-Man

Question: When Peter meets up with Gwen after Uncle Ben leaves the school, what does he mean when he says he got "community service"? Does he mean Uncle Ben's request to pick up Aunt May or replying to Gwen's answer of getting expelled?

Answer: He was replying to Gwen's question about being expelled. He didn't get expelled and the school wasn't going to make him pay for the broken backboard, but instead gave him community service, as a way of paying for the backboard and punishment.

Answer: He's telling Gwen that he's been grounded.

How? Peter doesn't tell Gwen that he's "grounded" nor did Uncle Ben tell Peter he's "grounded".

Cody Fairless-Lee

Community Service was probably a way of saying that Peter was grounded.
