Beyond reconciling his own dual identity as Spider-Man and Peter Parker, the web-spinner here (Garfield) faces several powerful villains with formidable powers who threaten the safety of his home city. Also, at the heart of this movie, is Peter's bond with Gwen (Stone).
: What sets Marc Webb's iteration of the web-slinger's story apart from Spider-Man's previous cinematic outings (and indeed, other superhero films) is that along with its share of action, epic fights and special effects, there is a vibrant, emotional core at the heart of this movie.
The human angle is strong throughout and this is visited early on, when we are reminded of Parker's parents Richard and Mary. Richard records a video message that attempts to explain why he and his wife had to decamp in a hurry. They also attempt to escape an assassin on their plane. Their young son Peter is left behind in the care of Aunt May and her husband. Will Peter discover this message that can help untangle the murky secrets behind Oscorp's mysterious experiments?
Back in present day New York, there's a zinger of an action scene where Spider-Man stops a truck with a Plutonium consignment from getting away. He also manages to save an Oscorp employee Max Dillon's (Foxx) life. Dillon is initially awestruck by Spider-Man. But when he subsequently has an accident involving falling into an experimental tank containing mutated eels, he mutates into Electro and soon becomes unhinged.
Meanwhile, Oscorp's CEO dies of a hereditary illness that is passed on to his son Harry (DeHaan). Harry's only cure is a sampling of Spider-Man's own venomous blood. Later, a series of events turns him into the Green Goblin. Interestingly, some of the villains inspire pity, because they all started out as normal people but later are twisted by fate and events.
The action sequences are breathtaking and despite the running time, the film doesn't drag. Garfield and Stone, in the scenes where they are together, have a palpable chemistry. This Spider-Man serves up both pathos and power.
The film has been made at an estimated budget of $200,000,000.
Director Marc Webb's film has been shot entirely in New York City, making it the largest production ever in the Big Apple.
The dog shown in the film actually belongs to real life couple Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
Spiderman's costume in the film resembles the original outfit depicted in the comic series.
Dane DeHaan's goblin costume in the film weighed 50 pounds and it would take the actor almost an hour to wear it.
For the character of Mary Jane, which was eventually dropped from the film, actresses Jane Levy and Kristen Stewart were both considered.
For the character of Harry Osborn, actors like Alden Ehrenreich, Brady Corbet, Eddie Redmayne, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth and Boyd Holbrook were considered.
Reportedly, the original Goblin vs. Spiderman fight was longer and more violent, but had to be cut in order to keep the PG-13 rating.
Several endings were shot for the film but ultimately the one resembling the comic series events was filmed and has been shown in the film.
When aunt May is talking to Peter she's holding a sandwich which has a lot of lettuce leaves in it but when Peter is shown holding the same sandwich, there are no lettuce leaves.
