When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
The human government develops a cure for mutations, and Jean Gray becomes a darker uncontrollable persona called the Phoenix who allies with Magneto, causing escalation into an all-out battle for the X-Men.
In the 1960s, superpowered humans Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr work together to find others like them, but Erik's vengeful pursuit of an ambitious mutant who ruined his life causes a schism to divide them.
Peter Parker has finally managed to piece together the once-broken parts of his life, maintaining a balance between his relationship with Mary-Jane and his responsibility as Spider-Man. But more challenges arise for our young hero. Peter's old friend Harry Obsourne has set out for revenge against Peter; taking up the mantle of his late father's persona as The New Goblin, and Peter must also capture Uncle Ben's real killer, Flint Marko, who has been transformed into his toughest foe yet, the Sandman. All hope seems lost when suddenly Peter's suit turns jet-black and greatly amplifies his powers. But it also begins to greatly amplify the much darker qualities of Peter's personality that he begins to lose himself to. Peter has to reach deep inside himself to free the compassionate hero he used to be if he is to ever conquer the darkness within and face not only his greatest enemies, but also...himself.Written by

When Spider-man shows up for the main fight scene, a lady holding a girl says "look!" and everyone turns around to see him. But the lady and girl are facing the other direction, so she couldn't have seen Spider-man coming. See more »

During the opening credits, snippets from the first two films can be seen. Also, some of the filmmaker's names appear and then blow away, as if made of sand. The black symbiote also makes a brief appearance. See more »
In 2017, in anticipation for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony released an "Editor's Cut" of Spider-Man 3. This cut mostly utilizes an unused score, alternate edits of scenes, a restructured story, and scenes both added and removed throughout. With all of these changes, this version runs 2 minutes shorter than the theatrical version. See more »
Firstly, i was really wondering whether to give Spider-Man 3 a 6 or a 7 out of 10, and then i realised that i couldn't really remember much about it so came to the conclusion it couldn't have been that worthy of the 7! I went to see this and was looking forward to it mainly because it was the first BIG movie of the year, excluding the few reasonably big earners that emerged! Unfortunately, this film really is a let down, especially if you were to be a huge fan or really enjoyed the first two films! The major problems were the storyline, the feeble attempt at trying to include comedy in it, and to be honest, the acting isn't that great! I also think they tried to put too much into it instead of making it more of a classic superhero film! I don't really think there was enough action in the film and therefore it didn't use the characters to their full potential, especially Sandman! Wasted in my opinion because they could have done so much more! The big budget obviously still allowed them to make the film look good with the special effects, but unfortunately the visual was actually the best bit about the black suit and the whole 'good Spidey vs. evil Spidey'! Now, this does sound like a bad review but all it is really is meaning to say that they had so much they could have done, and they just didn't hit the mark! But hey, it's made a shed-load in the box-office already so... !! I would buy Spider-Man 3 on DVD but i certainly wouldn't rush out to get it, and would probably wait for it to come down in the sale!
