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.

Trivia: Stan Lee makes a cameo appearance as a librarian at Parker's school wearing large headphones, unaware that Spider-Man and the Lizard are battling at the library behind him. (01:37:25)

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?

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.

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?

Chosen 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".

Question: When Peter is asleep on the subway, a man puts a glass of water on his head which causes a small drop of water to slide down. When the drop of water gets close to his forehead, his Spider-sense immediately alerts him and he wakes up before the water touches him. Peters' Spider-sense alerts him when he is near danger but, why would it activate when a harmless drop of water is about to touch him?

Chosen answer: "Spidey sense" is more than anticipating danger; it's an overall heightened awareness of the environment around him. In the other "Spider-Man" movie, for example, when the bully is taking swings at Peter, the action slows down and he actually marvels at the ability to observe the action as if it were in slow motion.
