Did you know?
In this film Spider-Man uses artificial devices to shoot webs, inspired from the original comics where he possessed similar devices for his webbing (only later would he gain the superhuman ability to shoot webs). Marc Webb explained the web-shooters were a creative decision to showcase Peter's intellect: "We wanted to emphasize that these are things that Peter Parker made and that he is special himself even if he feels like he's an outsider."

To prepare for his role as Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield studied the movements of spiders and tried to incorporate them as much as he could: "Parker is a boy/spider in terms of how he moves, and not just in the suit."

John Slattery, Sam Elliott and R. Lee Ermey were rumored for the role of J. Jonah Jameson. However, this character, a legendary part of Spider-Man's mythos, does not appear in this film.

Peter's hair length changes constantly throughout the movie. For example it's very long and not stuck up at dinner with Gwen's family and right after is shorter and spiked in the rooftop kiss scene.

While The Lizard is attacking the bridge, Dr. Rajit Ratha's car is bumped and pushed diagonally to the side by another car. However, in the next shot from the inside of the car, it's clear that all of the cars are in a straight row, as if nothing had happened.

Dr. Connors' right arm-stump is very muscular. However, as anyone who has worked with amputees knows, after several years of having an amputated limb, the remaining stump still attached, experiences degeneration and is withered.

Dr. Curt Connors: Welcome. My name is Dr. Curtis Connors. And yes, in case you're wondering, I'm a southpaw. I'm not a cripple, I'm a scientist, and I am the world's most foremost authority in herpetology. That's reptiles, for those of you who don't know.

A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Is this in the same universe as the rest of the Marvel movies?
No. All films made under the Marvel Studios banner (i.e., Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America) are set in the same universe, with the characters crossing over, culminating in The Avengers (2012) movie which will tie these films together. Marvel also owns Punisher and Blade, however Punisher (2004), Punisher: War Zone (2008), Blade (1998), Blade II (2002) and Blade: Trinity (2004) are not in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Other Marvel-based films owned by other studios are NOT set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, due to differing ownership. This includes Spider-Man (owned by Sony), the X-Men and Fantastic Four (both owned by Fox).
