    Seems more dramatic seeing his eyes when it comes on :) With a mask it would`t have the same reaction

    In the first movie, when Peter catches MJ in the lunchroom, isn't that the Spider-Sense. He wasn't masked though.

    they don't show it all the time cause they don't need too. everyone knows he has it. it doesn't show it when he fights cause that ring would desract you from the action on screen. that's it.....just the way they decsided to do it in the movie

    Didn't we already have a thread on this and almost every agreed that it is shown well and can't be shown all the time because it would get too repetative?

    yeah, that thread blind fury made, but this is acknowledging that the spidey sense is there but not as blatant when he has the mask on, and that's true.

    I'm still going with my theory that it's the mask blocking his spidey senses. ;)

    No I think it's just that everytime he has the mask on he is knowingly entering into a fight. When he has the mask off he isn't prepared for it and viola...spider-sense time.

    Of course it is, he wouldn't have the level of dexterity he does if he didn't receive advanced warning that something was coming. It's totally instinctual. It might be somewhat subdued when he's heavily engaged in something, but it certainly is still there and continually active.

    well then how did he know when to duck??? his spider sense had to go off, other wise he would had gotten cut up by them.

    and remember after ducking down, i believe goblin kicked him in the face. so his spider sense warned him of one danger from behind, but once in motion of fleeing that danger, goblin in front of him sent another danger, but spidey couldn't avoid that kick.

    your doing good with covering your points though :up: :)

    Does he have Spider-Sense in the movies? It seems to me that he gets hit quite a lot which is surprising considering that his Spidey sense and reflexes in the comics are supposed to enable him to dodge bullets (if there is enough distance and time of course) and in the movies he seems to have trouble dodging peoples fists, which lets face it, are not as fast as bullets.

    You always feel like that.

    Why couldn't this have ended with Blind_Fury? Well, I'll say this much about you, Odin's Lapdog. You certainly are'nt reacting like he did. Which is nice.

    Actually, I don't always feel like that. But discussing the Spider-Sense and questioning its prescence in the films is like listening to a 50 Cent album: the same s*** over and over and over again.

    the other thread was how it wasn't used or highlighted enough.

    This one is purely based on the fact he doesn't seem to use it in battle, pre battle, post battle while he is masked.

    it's gone off while in costume before, i don't see the difference between being in nearly full costume and totally full costume. (talking about on the train)

    chill, it's just an observation ;)


    all that's being said is that it would be nice to have spidey's sense actually going off while in costume. Especially with the apparent venom entering.

    I mean what is the big deal of spidey not being able to sense venom when he doesn't seem to sense anything with his mask on anyway.

    yes and yes.

    I think that's the first official time it goes off although most people remember the flash moment more.

    note again his back was turned on the event when his sense went on. Add that to the 'most sensitive from danger from behind' column

    IF say, you moved at the speeds that quicksilver and flash move out, one wouldn't need an extra sense in order to dodge harm since, first one would be mostly aware of these dangers from the other five senses and secondly one would be able to deal with them accordingly.

    now granted spidey isn't as fast as the flash or quicksilver but given his reaction speed EVEN without his spider sense and own proportional speed, he might as well be to any given foe.

    a punch from an average teenager with probably no fighting experience was dodged with enough ease for parker to actually realise what he was doing and amazing himself and that's pre any experience what so ever, no spider sense, just pure reaction.



    saying this a normal human shouldn't be able to get near him and in the films luckily none ever does (which is one good thing about them), although then you can say that ock's reactions are at a human level but then you can say he's a strategist that takes this into account and plans ahead.

    Saying this, film Spidey isn't immune to taking a beating.


    Take the most heroic piece so far. It seems if parker is visually aware of the danger coming, if only for a nano second then his sense doesn't go off because his body knows he can deal with it (or at least assumes he can).

    although it also seems that his spider-sense can't go off when he's exhausted or perhaps stuck in dialogue with others. Biggest example is while being Masked (uh oh), he gets taged from behind by ock while speaking to mj and gets heavily clubbed.

    in short, personally I feel based on what is seen there's is more evidence to show it doesn't occur in a battle situation once the threat has been initially identified and visually contact confirmed, or at any time when his mask is on:(

    but based from background knowledge from what we expect from the comic book media, then one can assume it's going off in battle, but based on purely film evidence and parker's actions in battle i don't think this is the case.

    but i won't try and convince you, i'm just stating my case, you're free to have your opinions Jonty30, i won't nag

    remind me, does it go off when spidey is flying towards aunt may and ock and aunt may rams her glasses into ock's face?

    the only fists parker has trouble dodging are super powered fist which move and react faster than normal ones, and also metal tendrils which are run by mechanics which react faster than muscles do.

    even then he manages to parry both ock's and norman's attacks at one point or another, just no where near as consistently.
