Question: The questions page for this movie says that the Green Goblin's voice, in the first movie, was another personality in Norman Osborn's mind. When Harry sees Norman's apparition in the mirror, is it really Norman, or is it coming from Harry's mind?
Question: This actually refers to the whole arc of Harry Osborn's role: Why did the film-makers want him to become a villain? I know they needed one for the third movie, but why make it one of Peter's closest friends? Was it an illustration of how big a difference, for good or bad, a single misinterpretation can make? A lesson in knowing how to look at a situation from someone else's perspective as well as your own? Or, was it just a really tragic way of showing that not all of Spider-Man's foes are going to be people he feels no regret over beating the pants off?
Question: I was watching some of the movie on TV. In the scene with Peter's birthday dinner, when Peter says he has been busy, Harry asks "Taking pictures of Spider-man?" instead of "Taking pictures of your friend?", like on the DVD I have. Is there any reason why this was changed?
Question: Does anyone know if Mary Jane and Peter will have a daughter in the movies (as they did in the comics)?
Question: At the beginning of his experiment, Dr. Octavius is wearing goggles. One lens is brightly colored from the reflection of the fusion, and the other is dark. Is this supposed to foreshadow that he will soon have a split personality between his good side and his evil side?
Question: What's the name of the song , and who is/are the artist[s] who performed it, when we first see Peter leading a normal life after he quits as Spider-man?
Question: When Peter is trying to get his powers back after Aunt May spoke to him when he was helping her pack up her belongings, why did he try to jump from one building to another? Surely there must have been a safer way like that time in the first movie when he was just trying to climb a wall or spin a web. Also, would Peter have survived that fall in real life?
Question: What is the situation with Mary Jane's mother? In the previous movie, Mary Jane's father refers to her as "trash", and in this movie, Mary Jane mentions that she is ill.
Question: Is the Green Goblin a whole separate being, or just another side/part of Norman Osborn himself (and then Harry)? I am asking because Norman argues with the Green Goblin mask in the first Spider-man movie, as if they are two separate people, but it also looks like he could be arguing with himself (with the Goblin's voice really being in his mind).
Question: At the very end of the movie, when Harry discovers the secret room, he sees many vials of the performance enhancer that his father was working on. Why did Norman Osborn need so many?
Question: When Dr. Octavius is out cold in the hospital, he has bandages covering his eyes. Since his eyes were protected during his demonstration and when he took them off to see his wife had been hit by debris, why would he need the bandages? His eyes were never damaged.
Question: Doc Ock's power comes from his actuators. Without them he is just a normal man. Spiderman has superpowers ie strength, recuparative powers etc. So why after all their fighting does only Spiderman show visible injuries? Even after being crushed between a flying table from the bank, and a taxi,which rocks the taxi onto two wheels, he gets up with no apparent injuries.
Question: Aunt May's speech to Peter at the end of the film suggests she's figured him out. The look he gives her back (I think) suggests he knows she knows and is cool about it. Am I right?
Question: I've seen some different Spiderman-magazines and on some of his costumes they have very large white eyes and some are significantly smaller, more like the costume in the movie. So is there anything that differs between the two costumes? Or is it just that the pictures are from different years or editions?
Question: In the beginning of the movie Peter sees a billboard of MaryJane and becomes distracted by it. Because of this he almost runs into the guy who owns the pizza parlor. Why didn't his Spider-sense warn him that he was in trouble? Not only is his Spider-sense running around the clock, but he doesn't begin to lose his powers until later on in the movie.
