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: Why did Uncle Ben chastise Peter for standing up to Flash? Considering that Flash constantly bullied Peter, shouldn't Ben have been pleased that Peter finally stood up for himself?

Answer: If you're talking about after the dunk scene, Ben didn't see it as Peter standing up for himself. Instead, he says Peter humiliated Flash and then finds out he's the same one that punched Peter earlier. So in Ben's mind, this was retaliation or retribution, which is not OK.
