    Originally he was suppost to create the Web Shooters but for some reason they changed it, If you watch the first trailers you can see it.

    I just rewatched this for the first time since seeing it in the theatre when it first came out, and just like back then, I find this movie... meh. The only thing really great about it in my opinion is JJJ. I suspect this is partly because I had no nostalgic connection to spider man prior to 2002, so all I see watching it is average acting, a cheesy villain and sets (not in a good way), whiny lead characters, too much screaming, and a boring script. Sorry to all who love this, but I just cannot!

    Chris Stuckman is a natural ginger. As in, he’s soulless and super gross

    If it wasn't for Spiderman (2002), movies like The Amazing Spiderman (2012) would feel the need to properly show how Peter Parker explores his Powers.

    It’s just like salty fan boys that thought Toriyama made Goku the main character of the buu saga over Gohan; people just love to be gullible and just join the crowd

    Sorry Chris, but this movie was a bit boring, especially the ending. Fan boy is showing through too much again.

    (at around 22 mins) The scene in which Peter Parker catches Mary Jane's lunch on the tray involved no CGI. With the help of a sticky substance to keep the tray planted on his hand, eventually, after 156 takes, he performed the stunt exactly as seen.
    (at around 26 mins) When Peter Parker is testing out his webbing for the first time, he says several classic DC Comics (archrival of Marvel Comics) catchphrases, most notably "Up, up and away, Web!" (Superman) and "Shazam!" (DC's Captain Marvel, not to be confused with a same named Marvel Comics character). Tobey Maguire ad-libbed these lines, which were not in the original script.
    James Franco's hair was dyed brown to give him some resemblance to Willem Dafoe, his screen father. This decision was only made after filming had begun. Indeed, in the scene where Harry visits Aunt May in hospital, you can see that Franco's hair is his usual black.
    Spider-Man's webbing in the film is made out of foam materials and fishing line. It was also enhanced with CGI.
    (at around 16 mins) The smoke in the lab during Norman Osborn's transformation scene was originally white but was then digitally altered to green. Director Sam Raimi wanted to use real green smoke, but went with the CG effect when prop designers could not create a colored smoke that was non-toxic.
    During the fight between the Green Goblin and Spider-Man near the end, Willem Dafoe accidentally clipped Tobey Maguire on the chin with one blow.
    Zach Hudson, the stunt double for Tobey Maguire, fractured his leg after a stunt went wrong and he slammed in to a brick wall.

    Willem Dafoe's own face bears an uncanny resemblance to the original Green Goblin mask from the comics, designed almost 40 years before he was cast in the role.

    (at around 10 mins) The spider that bites Peter is red and blue, the colors of Spider-Man's suit.
    Willem Dafoe's last name sounds like "the foe," which is interesting because he is the foe (villain) in this film.
    (at around 6 mins) The jumping spider that Peter attempts to take a picture of is an Avondale Spider, the same type used in Arachnophobia (1990).
    In the final battle between Spider-Man and the Goblin, the CGI artists had to change the color of the blood pouring from Spider-Man's mouth to a clear liquid, indicating spit. This was to ensure a PG-13 rating.
    One of the reasons why Sam Raimi was a popular choice with Sony for the director's gig was because he is an avid comic book collector in his private life, with a collection of over 25,000.
    One of the chief difficulties that Tobey Maguire experienced in the now-famous upside-down kissing scene was that his sinuses kept filling up with water as it was performed in driving rain.
    The first film to gross $100 million in its opening weekend alone. At the time, no movie had done so, even when adjusted for inflation.
    The first Marvel movie to showcase the flipping pages Marvel logo.
    Tobey Maguire said he had never read a Spider-Man comic book but took the role because he liked the script.

    Tobey McGuire was the better Spiderman.
    But, ironically, Andrew Garfield is the better actor.

    That final hand to hand combat scene holds up today, its absolutely ruthless. I still remember seeing that scene as a kid with the grenade blowing up in the reflection of spider-mans eyes and being blown away..

    Spider-Man: Perfect casting and plot!
    Spider-Man 2: This. Was. Perfect.
    Spider-Man 3: It used to be my favorite Spider-Man. No joke.
    The Amazing Spider-Man: Not amazing, but not bad
    The Amazing Spider-Man 2: I refused to see this and just wanted Tobey Maguire back.
    Homecoming: Who the hell are you. I want Tobey back.
    Far From Home: You REALLY think you're Spider-Man? Your version has Aunt May as a sex toy and Uncle Ben got decimated before Thanos showed up. I want Tobey back.
    I only seen Hoco and Far From Home because my sister dragged me to them. And I figured they'd be handy for ranting.

    I would never forget the scene where Peter crawls the wall for the 1st time
    When Peter goes after Uncle Ben killer and the web swinging at the end.
    That blew my mind

    I like this version of Spiderman, because it follows the comics; he’s not selfish, he’s just a guy that’s trying to do the right thing and just has bad luck that in essence is what Spiderman is

    This my favorite movie of all time. Thank you for reviewing it. I loved how it was a superhero film and did not apologize for being so. I loved the acting, the fights, the special effects. Awesome. And Return of The Jedi is my favorite Star Wars film.

    The best Spider-Man, and the best director. Back then movies had a sense of purpose, they had adult content, they were moving and full of love, on screen and in the making.
    MCU is just autoreferential and diversity-based and worst of all *unmemorable* stuff now, made just to cash-in on the too many casual viewers just looking for a laugh. It's sad that they can decide for us who respected these movies.

    I agree with everything you said! It's truly an amazing movie. Sam Raimi is a complete genius. As a kid, he was my favorite superhero so when this came out, it was huge for me too! He still is my favorite superhero.
