Spider-Man 3

Harry (having become New Goblin) attacks Peter early on, but gets hit on the head and loses his memory. Peter saves Gwen and because of his ongoing fame, gets a big ego, and kisses Gwen for his public, making MJ really mad. The symbiote latches on to Peter, making him aggressive. He goes after and "kills" Sandman, believing that Sandman intentionally killed Uncle Ben. (The shooting was really an accident, but Sandman isn't dead.) Harry regains his memory and makes MJ break up with Peter to hurt him. Furious, Symbiote Peter confronts Goblin Junior, severely wounding him with his own pumpkin bomb. Symbiote Peter also exposes the photo fraud his new competitor, Eddie Brock. Eddie gets fired, and is furious at Peter. Bad Pete uses Gwen to make MJ jealous, and then hits her in a symbiote-induced fury. He flees to a church, struggling with and finally shedding the symbiote suit, which captures Eddie, making him Venom. Sandman and Venom join forces, kidnap MJ, and challenge Spider-Man. Spider-Man cannot defeat them both, and asks a disfigured Harry for help. Harry turns him down, until Bernard (the butler) tells Harry that it was not Spider-Man who killed Harry's father (the original Green Goblin). Harry shows up in his Goblin Junior suit and rescues Peter. Harry chases Sandman away, and gets mortally stabbed by Venom while protecting Peter. Peter uses sound waves and a pumpkin bomb to defeat Venom/Eddie. Harry dies in Peter's and MJ's arms. Peter and MJ reconcile.

Factual error: Though it's supposed to take place in NYC, when Sandman punches Spider-Man through the back door of the armored truck, as Spider-Man glides on the broken metal door he passes the well known Wyndham Hotel at Playhouse Square, located in downtown Cleveland.

More trivia for Spider-Man 3

Answer: At one point in time, Sony was set to make "Spider-Man 4" with director Sam Raimi and stars Tobey MacGuire and Kirsten Dunst. However, Raimi was unable to find a script he was satisfied with after many months of working with different writers, and he was having issues with the studio attempting to force the film into a 2011 release date, which he felt wouldn't give him the time he needed to make a quality film. Thus, he and the actors dropped out and the studio instead opted to go ahead with a reboot, in the form of The Amazing Spider-Man.
