A compromising meal tray, a telephone message which very nearly revealed to Mary-Jane the true identity of Spider-Man… A look back at 5 screenplay inconsistencies hidden in Sam Raimi’s trilogy.
Despite its effectiveness and its great qualities, the Spider-Man trilogy directed by Sam Raimi in the 2000s sometimes has some screenplay inconsistencies that fans have not failed to note. Whether it’s a compromising voice message, an improbable strategy or a reckless car launch, a look back at 5 more or less important implausibilities in the three feature films worn by Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst.
A canvas in the canteen
At the beginning of Spidermanas Peter Parker begins to discover his new powers, all high school students who have lunch in the dining hall of his establishment can see him leaving the room in a hurry, followed by a meal tray to which the spider’s web he has snagged. accidentally just launched.
A few minutes later, he knocked down the colossus Flash Thompson in front of witnesses.
However, when a mysterious web-slinging vigilante nicknamed Spider-Man appeared on the streets of New York a few weeks later, not one of the students present that day had the presence of mind to do the connection with these strange events.
A compromising message
At the end of Spiderman, just before the final battle on the Brooklyn Bridge, Peter Parker tries desperately to reach Mary-Jane, convinced that the Green Goblin has come after her. When he comes across the young girl’s voicemail, he asks her to call him back as soon as possible. That’s when he hears the Jester’s laugh on the other end of the line, followed by the following sentence: “Does the Spider want to come and play with me?”
Once freed, Mary-Jane inevitably returned home, and most likely listened to her messages, which should have revealed to her the true identity of Spider-Man. However, at the end of the film, she does not seem to know more when she finds Peter at the funeral of Norman Osborn. It’s not until Spider-Man 2 that she finally learns the truth.
We discuss later!
In Spider Man 2, Dr. Octopus seeks at all costs to put the clamps on the precious Tritium which is supposed to allow him to carry out his project. To find some, he makes a deal with Harry Osborn, who – still eager to avenge his father’s death – asks him to bring him Spider-Man in exchange.
The identity of Spider-Man remaining unknown, the sprawling scientist decides to question Peter Parker, considered the official photographer of the vigilante. Although completely unaware of the powers the young man has, Octopus throws a car directly at him. A rather brutal and risky tactic if his intention is really to extort information from him, right?
The Sandman medallion
Knowing that when he fell into the particle accelerator (at the start of Spider-Man 3), the clothes and accessories worn by Flint Marko all turned into sand, how is it that the small medal containing the photo of his daughter remained intact?
Harry and MJ
In Spider Man 3when Harry Obsorn regains his memory after his accident and tries to make Peter suffer emotionally, he forces Mary-Jane to play his game or risk attacking Spider-Man physically.
If she could hardly stand up to Harry at the time, it would still have been easy for the young girl to warn Peter discreetly, especially in the scene where she meets him on the Central Park bridge, instead of breaking up with him like Harry had asked him.
