Continuity mistake: When Peter is looking through his father's file in his bedroom, Uncle Ben comes in and starts playing with a Rubik's cube from Peter's desk. When he sets it down, the top and middle row are red and the bottom row is white. Shortly afterwards, when Peter is researching Doctor Connors on his computer, the top and middle rows are suddenly white and the bottom row is red (not fully solved, as another listed mistake claims).

THGhost

Continuity mistake: When the Lizard is cornered by the cops at the deli, note the column behind him: First it has 6 bullet holes, then after the shooting it's got 30, then in a brief close-up it's back to 6 holes.

Continuity mistake: At the deli, when the cops have shot down the Lizard, watch the back part of the robe, where the bag strap is: It swaps from a big open hole, to being split in two big sizes, to split in a big and a small size hole; all in a matter of frames, no sense whatsoever.

Continuity mistake: When Peter is told that the thief that killed Uncle Ben has a star tattooed on his left arm, the way the thief steals the money from the cash register is slightly different from the first time we saw him do it. The scene was re-filmed. (00:44:30 - 00:46:40)

THGhost

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Peter Parker goes back to his Aunt & Uncles house after his first Spidey-training session, he raids the fridge & freezer. When confronted by his Aunt & Uncle, the freezer door is slowly swinging open, but in the next shot, the freezer door next to his Aunt & Uncle is closed.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Spider-Man is unmasked he splits an assault rifle in half, trips a man, then drops the two pieces on the ground. The scene switches to a long shot and Spider-Man can be seen still holding the two pieces of the weapon in his hands. The pieces are out of his hands in the immediate following shot. (01:44:50)

In the close-up, all tables have 2 chairs; the first three tables are parallel, yet a fourth one is behind the third table. Peter also knocks down a table or chair which appears standing in the final shot.

More quotes from The Amazing Spider-Man

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.

Question: At the end Peter dumps Gwen so she'd be safe. But wouldn't a keen super villain notice that they dated for a bit and capture Gwen?

Dankydanc100

Chosen answer: Any supervillain would have to (a) work out that Peter Parker was Spider-Man, (b) learn that he once dated Gwen and (c) make the assumption that he still cared about her. Yes, this is still conceivably possible, so, true, she's not absolutely safe. On the other hand, if they continue to date, then points (b) and (c) become rather obvious, making her an almost certain target. Breaking up with her minimises the risk.
