* Am I the only one to notice that Mary Jane's hair colour seems to change in each film? In the first one it's an unnaturally vivid red, in the second it's a more natural-looking ginger tone, and in the third it's a darker auburn.

Added DiffLines:

** Destroying enemy remote recon equipment without wasting ammunition or alerting them. Assuming it wasn't spotted impaling anything with sensitive electronics would certainly be a silent way of getting red of that sort of thing. That or he was showing off to the military by designing an impractical but impressive looking piece of equipment.


Added DiffLines:

** The Butler was unfailingly loyal to the Osborns, the Goblin tolerated him because Norman wouldn't let it kill the man and he needed the help to handle his gear safely as putting on the suit wasn't a one person job. Norman/The Goblin assumed that money and personal loyalty would buy his silence.

Added DiffLines:

** Maybe out of loyalty to the family and understanding that Norman was under the influence of something the family Butler aided Norman enough to keep him from getting himself killed while urging him to seek treatment. Not unlike what Alfred does for Batman only in this case unaware of how dangerously unhinged his employer/surrogate family member had become until it was too late. Then when Norman did actually kill himself in his grizzly work the Butler who had been about to leave or report him to the police did what he could to clean the body up give Norman a decent respectable appearance before the police showed up while keeping the full details hidden. Protecting the family name, keeping young Harry from losing what good memories he had of his father, and ensuring that his death would go unsolved or at least not blamed on Spiderman.


* What does Octavius need money for? I mean, couldn't he just steal every component he needs? Besides, where did he buy everything from without alerting somebody?

** Ben and May almost certainly doesn't have the money to be spending on doctor's visits and Pete is the type of person to hid injuries to not worry or cause trouble for his family. His powers developed the next day, so it's very reasonable to assume he would try to sleep it off for at least one day. By the books smart doesn't mean lifestyle smart either.

** Confirmed in the original script for Spiderman 4.


** Looking over Website/YouTube comments, that seems to be one of the chief complaints about III: that Venom was barely in the movie and spent most of his screentime out-of-mask. In the official "The Making Of Spider-Man 3", Rami stated that the reason he had Spider-Man's mask rip at the end of all three films, the Green Goblin's helmet smashed in I, Doc Ock's glasses broken in II, and Venom spend 90% of the final battle out-of-mask in III was so that the viewers could see the actors' emotions during the climactic scene. Then again, Rami has stated in the past he never liked Venom to begin with and only added him due to his popularity with the fans.

*** There's a reason that, in sports, most signals and calls are monosyllabic shouts signalling previously-agreed-upon moves rather than lengthy, explicit instructions. You ever try talking while doing something legitimately strenuous (like running, weight lifting, flipping around like a madman while trying to avoid seven different varieties of painful death at once)? If you're doing that kind of acrobatics, you're breathing heavily, and unfortunately for reality, turns out you talk and breathe through the same system.

** Raimi and Mc Guire both stated that they didn't want the audience to "forget about Peter Parker", so they keep looking for excuses for him to lose the mask. When leading up to the first film, Raimi even considered leaving the mask's eye pieces uncovered.

*** More likely still, [=McGuire=] is an actor who wants his face in every frame of the film, and Sony paid good money for that face and not for CGI or masked stunt guy. It was subtle in the first film, with pumpkin bombs blasting holes through his mask and such, but the sequels are just ridiculous.

* In the first film, Peter Parker gets bitten by a ''completely unidentified'' spider, on a school trip to a lab that works with spiders, starts feeling unwell soon after, and...seeks no medical attention whatsoever? Isn't he supposed to be ''smart''?


* Does Norman's evil personality think he is a mythological creature, or is he using the Goblin persona to strike fear in people? This troper somewhere online read that an alternate personality can be non-human.
