When Peter Googles the name of his father Richard Parker, one of the options offered is "richard parker life of pi", as the same name is given to a character in a novel which was adapted as the film Life of Pi (2012) about the same time as this film. Irrfan Khan appears in both films and speaks the name Richard Parker in both.

This film marks the first time Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) becomes The Lizard on film. Although Curt Connors appeared in Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3 (2007), played by Dylan Baker, the character never became the Lizard despite some strong hints, and was set to become the Lizard in some script treatments which were never green lighted.

The first time that Peter attacks a guy in the city, while he is being chased the men climb to the roof much too quickly; by the time Peter gets to the top they are arriving at the roof. In reality, it would take much longer to climb those staircases.

After Peter saves a student from Flash's bullying, Peter sits in his chair in the classroom and puts his head down, resting it on his camera. The immediate next shot from the back of his head shows him sitting upright, putting his head down again.

Where is Stan Lee's cameo in this movie?
Stan Lee is seen in the library at Peter's high school as The Lizard and Spider-Man are fighting behind him while he is oblivious to the action because he's wearing headphones with the volume turned up.
Who is the man in the post credits scene covered by the shadows?
Rhys Ifans told Ain't It Cool News that the man was not Norman Osborn (Green Goblin), but is a representative from Oscorp and someone the fans are familiar with. The man was later revealed to be Gustav Friers, aka the Gentlemen, who is known to have formed the Sinister Six in the comics.
Why isn't Mary Jane on the cast list?
Mary-Jane is not the love interest (or one of them) in this film adaption of Spider-Man. Instead the love interest is Gwen Stacy. Gwen was an earlier love interest for Peter Parker, after his failed attempt at a romantic relationship with J. Jonah Jameson's secretary, Betty Brant, and before Mary-Jane in the original comics.
