Did you know?
Stan Lee originally filmed the cameo of the man who shouts: "Hey, Spider-Man stole that guy's pizza!" But because of problems with the shot it was re-filmed with another actor, and Lee was given a different (but heroic) cameo.

Sam Raimi originally wanted the main stunt co-ordinator to be Siu-Tung Ching, who was uncredited on Spider-Man (2002). Sam couldn't hire him because he was working with Steven Seagal on Belly of the Beast (2003). To compensate, Sam hired Dion Lam (who was Ching's assistant on many of his Hong Kong movies).

30 "nondescript" cars were purchased for use by the film's stunt drivers to wreck during action sequences. By the end of filming, all 30 had been destroyed.

When we first see the "Spider Man No More" newspaper, the normally red part of the costume appears green. In the next shot of the papers, the costume is red again.

When Spider-Man saves Mary Jane and has her suspended in a web on the crane, the first shot shows her on the very edge of the right-hand side. In the following close-up shots you can see plenty of web to her right, making it look like she is in the center.

In the train fight sequence, the train says Bay Ridge in the destination window on the front of the train. On real subway cars, there are no destination signs on the cab ends of the cars: only a letter or number rollsign or LED display is present. The only destination signs in the trains are on the sides of the cars. Historically, however, there has been New York City Subway rolling stock that has been equipped with end destination signs (like the Redbird trains used on the IRT until 2003, and the R32 and R38 cars prior to being retrofitted with flipdot signs in the 1990s). Despite this, no rolling stock has been built for the subway with blinker doors. All stock has been constructed with sliding doors. However, this is a fictional route created for the movie (see Trivia), and it might not necessarily be tied in with the real subway system.

In the finale would it be possible to drown Doctor Octopus' "sun" in the river?
In theory, the amount of heat and gravitational pull from a star, even one that size, would be enough to pull in and vaporize the water around it. We should have seen a very large column of steam rising out of the river, but it is a detail that was probably over looked or not even considered.
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Spider-Man 2 can be found here.
How many different cuts of this movie are available?
Basically, there are three different cuts available throughout the world. First of all there is the well-known theatrical version (1) that has been altered prior to the British cinema release by Sony and unfortunately found its way to nearly all PAL-DVDs (2): One headbutt has been replaced with a normal punch. The US-DVD is uncut. You can find a detailed comparison with pictures here. Then, just in time for the theatrical release of Spider-Man 3 an Extended Cut (3) has been released to the home media market that runs approx. 8 minutes longer than the theatrical version. This extended version features several different kind of new scenes: story extensions, romance, action but in principle this extended version is only worth for the die-hard fan. A detailed comparison between the theatrical versiond and the Extended Cut can be found here. And by the way, the European versions of the Extended Cut are still altered in the same way as the theatrical version, thanks to the BBFC and Sony.
