Spiderman 3 Plot Summary

IMDB has a summary of the Spiderman 3 plot. Really enjoyed the first two so looking forward to this. If you want to read it here I’ve included it in an extended entry.

Third film in the highly successful “Spider-Man” series sees several new villains and a new woman enter Peter Parker’s life. With his secret now revealed to both Mary Jane and Harry, Peter must face the consequences of his actions and his new life together with Mary Jane as they finally form a relationship. Yet their newfound open display of love has yielded some unfortunate results, not the least of which is Peter’s upset boss determined to make his life hell for causing his son emotional distress. Not helping is a young investigative reporter named Eddie Brock who Jameson has hired to find out why Mary Jane dumped his son for Peter – what’s Parker’s secrets? At the same time an escaped prisoner hiding out on a remote beach is caught in a dreadful accident and finds himself turned into a shape-shifting sand creature. Peter’s investigations into the past of this ‘Sandman’ brings him in contact with two very different things that will inevitably alter his life. The first a young woman named Gwen Stacy, daughter of the city’s new police chief who is developing a soft spot for Peter. The other, a black substance from an accident scene which ‘merges’ with Peter’s costume and gives him new found abilities. Things come to a head however when Harry Osborn, determined to take revenge against Peter for his father’s death and now equipped with what he needs to pull it off, teams with The Sandman in a new variation of his father’s Green Goblin guise and causes mayhem. In the ensuing chaos lives are lost, including people very close to Peter, whilst the black substance covering his suit separates from him and merges with a distraught Brock to form something else entirely – a creature unlike anything he’s ever faced. A ‘Venom’ that he may not be able to stop.

looks like the third installment could be a real humdinger, i’m looking forward to this, especially as i only saw spiderman2 a little while back. sam raimi is a man heavily influenced by the mid 20th century pop icons like the lone ranger and flash gordon saturday morning serials that also inspired lucas and spielberg, not to mention their influence on a young raimi with jaws, star wars etc, we’ll be doing a 1 hour special soon on those saturday morning serials that played such a big part in shaping those young film makers minds.

Hmmm. I’m intrigued by these saturday morning serials. The best we had was Thundercats and Duck Tales.
