Plot

The Amazing Spider-Man: Peter Parker (Logan Lerman) is a social high school teenage outcast and lives in Forest Hills, a quiet neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, with his Uncle Ben (Richard Jenkins) and Aunt May (Helen Mirren). He secretly loves Gwen Stacy (Ashley Benson), but he is too shy to approach her. Peter is rivaled with Eddie Brock (Cam Gigabet), who is the school bully and has a crush on Gwen as well. Peter’s best friend Harry Osborn (David Henrie) is the son of Dr. Norman Osborn (John C. McGinley), president of the Oscorp manufacturing corporation, which is working to win a contract to supply weapons to the United States Army.


On a field trip to a genetics laboratory, Peter is bitten by a genetically engineered radioactive spider. He passes out in his bedroom at home, and the next day his vision is perfect, he has become more muscular with superhuman strength, his wrists emit web strings, and his reflexes are super-quick. At school, he saves Gwen from falling off the edge of the stairs and easily defeats Eddie in a fistfight, impressing Gwen. Realizing that the spider's bite has given him spider-like powers, he trains himself to scale walls, jump between rooftops, and swing through the city.


Wanting to impress Gwen, Peter decides to buy a sports car and enters a tournament. He wins the tournament; however, the man in charge only gives Peter $100 for winning the match early. When a burglar robs the man, Peter takes his revenge by allowing the robber to escape, but he discovers later that the thief killed Uncle Ben during his getaway. Feeling responsible for Ben's death, and feeling guilty for rejecting his advice, Peter dedicates himself to fighting crime as the amazing Spider-Man. He makes money by selling pictures of himself as Spider-Man to Daily Bugle newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson (James Remar), who declares Spider-Man as a menace to New York. Spider-Man has kept the city save from rubbers and gangs, however, George Stacy (Denis Leary), Gwen’s father who is captain of the New York City Police Department, declares a manhunt in capturing Spider-Man for arrest and to unravel his identity in anger of claiming Spider Man making the police department look like a joke.


As Spider Man, Peter encounters villains Aleksei Sytsevich (Vinnie Jones), who was empowered by scientists and proclaims himself as Rhino, and Felicia Hardy (Anne Hathaway), who follows in her father’s footsteps as a criminal proclaiming herself as Black Cat. After a confrontation with Rhino, Spider-Man defeats him however for Black Cat he allows to get away, since he was unable to catch her in a race in the first place. Before she flees, Black Cat offers to aid Spider-Man whenever he is in trouble, but the two will always remain rivals. Meanwhile, Norman attempts to preserve his company's military contract from a rival firm, personally experimenting with his company's new but unstable performance-enhancing chemical vapor to increase his speed, strength, and stamina. Afterward, he goes into an uncontrollable rage and kills his assistant.


At a Oscorp facility, scientist teacher Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) informs Peter and the rest of the class about his new program of regrow back his arm before injecting himself with a lizard DNA, which will regenerate his arm back. Unfortunately, this goes wrong, and Connors transforms into The Lizard. The Lizard begins attacking everyone, turning them into lizards, and terrorizes Peter, Gwen and Harry. The Lizard chases Peter, who stalls the Lizard in order to give Gwen and Harry the chance to escape, around the facility until he manages to escape. Peter sneaks in his Spider-Man outfit and battles the Lizard, which escapes into the sewers along with the other turned human lizards. Spider-Man then follows and defeats the Lizard, turning Connors back to himself.


Norman kills several of his competitor's scientists from the air, wearing an artificial exoskeleton and standing on a small flying platform called a "glider", proclaiming himself as the Green Goblin. After Oscorp's directors fire him, Norman flies to an Oscorp-sponsored fair, which is at a high school pep rally, and kills them before Spider-Man drives him away. After Spider-Man refuses the Goblin's offer to work together, Norman tracks down Rhino and Black Cat, asking them to join forces to kill Spider-Man. Black Cat refuses but Rhino accepts. Norman seeks to find Connors, planning to force him into building a machine-like transmitter to infect everyone in New York with the chemical vapor. Norman secretly discovers that Peter is Spider-Man; the Green Goblin attacks Aunt May.


As Peter, Gwen and Harry watch over May in the hospital, Eddie, in an act of jealousy of Gwen rejecting him over Peter, meets with the Green Goblin. He asks him to kill Peter so he can win Gwen’s heart. Instead of this, the Green Goblin lures Spider-Man to the Brooklyn Bridge, where he has taken Gwen captive and plans to activate the transmitter. Connors, angered of the Green Goblin’s actions, decides to shut down the transmitter; however the Green Goblin threatens to kill his wife and son, whom he had kidnapped in order to get Connors into building the machine. Connors transforms into the Lizard and attacks Spider-Man as George and his NYDP SWAT unit arrives to rescue Gwen and capture Spider-Man as well as the Green Goblin. Spider-Man is overpowered by the Lizard and Rhino, but Black Cat appears and joins the fight, helping Spider-Man defeat Rhino and the Lizard. After Connors retunes back to normal, Black Cat escorts him and his family to safety.


Spider-Man confronts the Green Goblin, who activates the machine, which is destroyed by Gwen who had placed a grenade inside as it was activated. The Green Goblin throws Gwen off the bridge, but when Spider-Man saves her, the Green Goblin attacks him causing Gwen to fall to her death despite Spider-Man’s fail attempt to try and save her again. Filled with rage, Spider-Man savagely attacked the Goblin, nearly killing him. Norman, unmasked, returned to his senses at the last minute; however he took the opportunity to attempt one final play by remote controlling his goblin glider to impale the wall crawler. Spider-Man was able to dodge the glider which instead impaled Norman, seemingly killing him.


At Gwen and Norman’s funeral, Harry swears vengeance toward Spider-Man, who he believes is responsible for killing his father, and asserts that Peter is all he has left. George also vows to gain revenge on Spider-Man, who he blames responsible for Gwen’s death, but instead seeks him death sentence when captured. As he leaves the funeral, Peter recalls Uncle Ben's words, "With great power comes great responsibility” .

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

One year after the battle with The Lizard, Green Goblin and Rhino. Peter Parker has become a popular superhero, protecting citizens from robbers and burning buildings, as Spider-Man, however spends his days mourning the death of his beloved Gwen Stacy, who was killed during his battle with the Green Goblin on the Brooklyn Bridge in The Amazing Spider-Man.


While being a senior in high school, Peter works as a mail delivery boy. In school, Peter begins to fall in love with his new classmate, Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Prout), who is then revealed to be an old best-friend of Gwen Stacy. Peter also hesitates to tell his best-friend Harry Osborn, who is now head of the Oscorp manufacturing corporation, the story of how his father, Norman Osborn, had actually died by his own hand instead of Spider-Man being accused of murdering him. Captain George Stacy, who is still determined to capture Spider-Man believing he is responsible for Gwen’s death, launches a dead-or-alive manhunt for Spider-Man.


One day, after saving kids from falling off the Brooklyn Bridge, Spider-Man is attacked by Kraven the Hunter (Gerard Butler), a maniacal insane hunter who seeks to kill Spider-Man to prove that he is the greatest hunter in the world. In a battle with Kraven, a team of NYDP S.W.A.T. unit arrives, forcing Kraven to retreat. Spider-Man was able to fight off several troops before escaping as George arrives. Before his date with Mary Jane, Peter thwarts an armed looting of an art museum and, as Spider-Man, tracks down an escaped robber, who turns out to be Black Cat. Soon after this, he thwarts an attack in the streets of Manhattan by The Rhino, who he was able to subdue and defeat. Peter attends his date with Mary Jane.


The next day, Peter is invited by Harry to meet Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), a famous nuclear scientist. Octavius activates his newly build machine attempting to harness the sun natural energy to fully increase the earth atmosphere. To control the beam from the machine, he creates four metal arms which he can mentally control. Though the experiment succeeds at first, it quickly becomes unstable and the atmosphere slowly begins to over extend its natural temperature, causing extreme heat exhaustion around the city. Octavius, determined to prove his experiment will succeed as he hopes, refuses to shut down the machine, with disastrous results: his family is killed, the neural inhibitor chip which prevents the arms from influencing Octavius's own mind is fried by an electrical arc, and the arms are fused to his spine. Unconscious, he is taken to a hospital to get molten metal out of him, but before one of the surgeons have a chance to cut the first arm off, the tentacles have developed a will of their own, and savagely kill the entire medical crew. Octavius then regains consciousness, leaving the hospital. The tentacles corrupt Octavius' mind, exploiting his vanity and ego, and lead him to the resolution that he must complete his experiment regardless of the moral cost. At the Daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson nicknames Octavius as “Doctor Octopus”.


Spider-Man stumbles to an unknown laboratory base called “MechaBioCon”, where he tries to rescue Mac Gargan (Timothy Olyphant), who was turned into the Scorpion and is occasionally subjected to mind control to make him cooperate. It is revealed that MechaBioCon, led by Dr. Still Well, had turned Mac into the Scorpion to use him as an apparent 'bounty hunter' to capture Spider-Man for experimenting. During the battle between Spider-Man and Scorpion, George and his S.W.A.T. unit appears and fights off the MechaBioCon soldiers. George intervenes, but when he confronts Spider-Man and Scorpion, he is shock to see Peter as Spider-Man before being impaled by the insane controlled Scorpion. Peter defeats Scorpion, releasing Mac from Dr. Stillwell’s control, and the two escapes as George destroys the MechaBioCon facility, killing himself and Dr. Stillwell in the process. Before fleeing, Mac thanks Peter for his help. Peter attends George’s funeral, and the manhunt for Spider-Man is called off.


Days later, Peter and Aunt May go to the bank to try and refinance their house, only the bank is then attacked by Octavius. Spider-Man (later joined by Black Cat) battles Octavius. He manages to save Aunt May, but Octavius wins the day (nearly impaling Spider-Man at one point) and returns to his lair with loot stolen from the bank. Soon after rebuilding the machine, Octavius is confronted by Kraven the Hunter who, instead of fighting, asks to join forces to kill Spider-Man. He reveals Octavius of the battle between Spider-Man and Scorpion, along with revealing Spider-Man’s true identity. Octavius then abducts Mary Jane and Harry, believing Spider-Man will rescue them in order to lure him into their trap. When Spider-Man confronts Octavius and Kraven the Hunter at the lair, Peter reveals to Mary Jane and Harry, who is horrified to see the enemy he swore to kill is his best-friend. In a battle against Octavius and Kraven the Hunter, Spider-Man is nearly killed but Black Cat arrives and aids Spider-Man, overpowering and defeating Kraven. Octavius activates the machine again, and is ultimately subdued in a final fight with Spider-Man. Harry destroys the machine, being severely injured in the process. Declaring revenge, Octavius escapes with Kraven the Hunter.


After they escape, Peter tries to tell Harry the truth, but the enraged Harry refuses to listen and storms off, refusing to never speak to Peter again. Peter explains to Mary Jane that as long as he is Spider-Man, Mary Jane will always be a target for his enemies, and they cannot be together, and he refuses to let her take the risk. Despite this, Mary Jane reveals her love feelings for Peter, and the two embrace each other, beginning a relationship. Harry, meanwhile, has visions of his father in a hanging mirror; the hallucination demands that his son kill Peter to avenge his death. Harry refuses and shatters the mirror, revealing a secret room containing the Green Goblin's gear, also finding out that he was the Green Goblin.
