Sony

people had a lot to say spider man 3, After a scene in which he plays a song to make Mary Jane jealous, the audience had a small question as to where the heck Peter learned to play the piano. Can he always play and we’ve literally never seen it? Was Venom somehow making this possible? Does uncontrollable hatred enhance the potential of music? Turns out, this might be the first. In bank scene In spider man 2, Aunt May lies that she has started teaching piano lessons again. This suggests that she taught piano, and that Peter probably picked up the instrument through good ole may.

Peter saved the pictures he took Spider Man, and they are briefly visible Spider-Man 3.

Sony

Peter Parker may be a photographer, but we mainly see his work for the Daily Bugle. But if you’ve ever met a photographer, you know they have a lot to show you. So it makes sense that Peter would save some photos of Mary Jane – especially if he took the picture just before the spider was granted superpowers.

While testing his powers, Peter Parker tests some catchphrases that a certain rival comic company might not have approved.

Sony

We usually imagine the Marvel/DC rivalry as a tense, no-nonsense battle between the two biggest players in the comics realm. So it’s always fun when one refers to the other as if let’s get to Zhao superman reference In Eternal, Tobey Maguire carves out two iconic lines that clearly relate to DC characters when Test Your Web Powers: “Up and away, Web!” and “Shazam!”

Sony

When Peter Parker says, “I’m Spider-Man, no more,” he really means it. He means so much that he throws his suit down the same street where he did one of the most Spider-Man things ever: kissed Mary Jane Watson while hanging upside down. Was that particular street the easiest for the studio to shoot for? Was it a pre-made set that they recycled? Let’s give Sam Raimi the benefit of the doubt and say this is pretty deep.

In one of Stan Lee’s cameos, he uses the same phrase he often said in the comics.

In Fantastic Four #19, published in 1963, was the first time Stan Lee said “’nuff said” in his Bullpen Bulletin. The bulletin was a part of the comic book in which Lee could go over news, promote new issues, and make announcements in the Marvel Universe. “‘Nuff said the man’s “Excelsior!” As has become a catchy phrase! It’s only fitting that one of Lee’s most poignant cameos spider man 3 is he saying ‘Nuff said.

The spider that bitten Peter Parker was hand-painted by Spider Wrangler.

Sony

Every kid grows up to dream of becoming an astronaut, secret agent or spider wrangler. Steven Kutcher is living the dream as a professional Spider-Man, and he crushes the house spider used in the first film. The initial thought was that a spider resembling a black widow bites Peter, but they are, you know, super dangerous. When he says that Kutcher “flinches” the house spider, I love to imagine a short leash and a spider-snack. Kutcher used paint (non-toxic) to paint the spider, and the bite was created using CGI.

Many speculate that this helmet is a nod to another infamous Spidey villain.

Sony

When we first see how Harry Osborne sets up shop in his father’s lair, Raimi shows us Norman’s stuff, then Harry’s. We see Green Goblin’s gliders, then Harry’s … snowboards. We also see the Green Goblin helmet and Harry’s facemask, but in between those two pieces of headgear we find this silver helmet. It could easily be a version of the Green Goblin’s helmet, but fans think it’s a nod to the Hobgoblin. Did Roderick Kingsley (Hobgoblin) somehow buy Oscorp? Did Harry tinker with the idea of ​​becoming some version of the Green Goblin, who would end up being the Hobgoblin? We can’t believe it, but a small glimpse of this helmet was enough to spread rumours.

While unconfirmed, there is a possibility that Bruce Campbell may have been Mysterio in a future Spider-Man film.

Sony

First things first: Bruce Campbell himself has said that he was never told by Raimi that he was ready to play Mysterio. The franchise should have had several more films before spider man 3 Tanked, and rumor has it that there was a storyboard of Campbell as the master of the illusion. Campbell as Mysterio can fit in the fact that he plays three different characters in the trilogy. When the Rumors Started, Fans Pointed to a Line from Campbell spider man 2 About “maintaining the illusion”. Regardless of whether this theory has any legs, we could always use more Bruce Campbell.

The wallpaper in Peter’s bedroom features tiny spiderwebs.

Sony

This may sound like a stretch, but it was actually confirmed in the director’s commentary. Slightly foreboding, the wallpaper for Peter Parker’s bedroom is made up of hundreds of spiderwebs. No wonder the man turned into a human spider.

When Sandman’s face is buried in the sand, his teeth do not come.

Sony

Well, this doesn’t include comic references, Stan Lee cameos or Easter Eggs. spider man 3 There are a lot of memorable images: the church scene, Toby’s bangs, hip thrust, Another shot that sticks with you is when a venomous Spider-Man nods Sandman against a moving train. Her face is gently buried under (in the sand), but the CGI cast pays incredible attention to detail. They even went so far as to animate each and every tooth flying through his head!

He May Be In A Full-Body Suit, But Those Green Goblin Stunts Were Almost All Performed By Willem Dafoe

Sony

Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina gave two exceptional performances as villains in Raimi’s Spider-Man films, but both actors had opposite approaches to stunts. While Molina did not trust himself to perform the stunts and was reluctant to hire a stuntman, Dafoe was ready to step onto the glider. About 90% of all Dafoe’s stunts were done himself.
