Continuity mistake: In the scene where the lizard and Spiderman are fighting in the sewers, the lizard scratches Spider-Man's chest, causing tears down the front of his suit and chest. He actually scratches straight down his chest, but from then on, whenever Spiderman's chest is shown the scratches are diagonally across him.

Trivia: Reportedly, there were some deleted scenes removed from the final film that would have fleshed out Peter's backstory even more. (Hence the early trailers featuring footage not found in the final film and suggesting it would further elaborate on his past) Rumor has it that these scenes were removed for two reasons- 1) To allow these plot elements to be explored in a sequel and 2) to make the film tonally more similar to the 2002 "Spider-Man" film for distribution and familiarity purposes, due to that film's success and warm reception.

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.

Bishop73

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.
