    Here is a list of FAQ that frequent the Spider-Man 3 (spoiler) forum. Since we would like to cut down on these repetitive questions showing up as new threads, I have decided to create this thread to deal with that problem.

    There are two parts to this thread. The first part will list the most common questions that seem to come up, the remainder of thread is for anyone to post a general question about Spider-Man 3.

    I would like to take a moment to thank Electroflare for the concept of this thread. He started a similiar thread, but it was agreed that more detail would be required.


    Spider-Man 3 details


    When will it come out?

    International release date - May 4, 2007 (some markets are later check local guides)

    SOURCE

    When will we get the first teaser?
    UPDATE June 15, 2006
    Sony Pictures was originally targeting Talladega Nights": The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, but recent reports and information have changed this plan and the teaser will apparently run with Superman Returns.

    SHH was first to report a fan provided information that the teaser will be released with Superman Returns.

    This was later confirmed by information provided by AICN and JoBlo.

    Whats the budget?

    The cost of the movie will be approximately $250 Million. Reportedly, it will be the highest cost for a movie ever released.

    UPDATE June 12, 2006

    Spider-Man Day!!!

    Somewhere during the movie will be a scene involving a celebration of Spider-Man. One set report has stated it was because he saved Gwen Stacy, although this is still speculative.

    There are several pictures of kids in Spider outfits, balloons, a stage with a "Thank You Spider-Man" going across, and Kirsten Dunst (MJ), Bryce Dallas Howard (Gwen), Tobey Maguire (Peter), Topher Grace (Eddie), James Cromwell (Captain Stacy) and of course Spider-Man, have all been shown around this scene. Please visit the picture thread for more information.

    A death?

    Recent pictures have shown Tobey Maguire (Peter) and James Cromwell (Captain Stacy) in a cemetary. All other actors have yet to appear in this interesting scene, but it leaves without a doubt that there will be a death. It could be similiar to Spider-Man 1 where Willem Dafoe's Character (Norman Osborn/GG) had died at the ending, or it could be anywhere in the middle.

    Rumours have been pointing towards Mary Jane, Harry Osborn, or Aunt May as the ones dying, but it is all speculation at this point.

    Will there be any further sequels after Spider-man 3?

    There is strong evidence that there will be 6 movies in total. SOURCE 1

    I saw this picture and I believe it's real, is it?

    The following are the most popular manips (fan made) that have been posted more times than most of us care to remember. Check out my picture thread for real set pictures.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I heard something about this (Infamous) Famous Q&A?

    It first appeared on SHH and then later on Aintitcool. It carried a spoiler heavy Spider-Man 3 Q&A between two undisclosed parties back in February. It has vanished now at Aintitcool, removed at Sony's request which could possibly mean it has some remote credibility, or it could possibly be that it simply had a couple of extremely lucky guesses. There is no yes or no answer to this question, many believe it, and many don't.

    There is a current thread discussing the details. link

    I saw an amusing fake teaser video that I feel compelled to create a thread about, should I?

    NO! Again we have seen many threads created because of these fake videos. Please direct any comments about any fake video in this thread. link


    It's Venom, it's a goblin, it's a church, it's..........nothing, absolutely nothing...


    [​IMG]

    We have all heard and seen the eyepiece in detail. There is simply nothing conclusive to indicate that there is actually anything visibly clear in the eyepiece. It's mostly speculation, and/or "wishful" thinking on the most part by fans. If Sony MEANT to have anything in the eyepiece would you think they would make it so difficult to distinguish? Threads on the subject is therefore unneccesary and unwarranted around these parts.

    But I saw something on IMBd (or Wikipedia)?(Thanks cmill)

    Do not believe everything you read? Both websites depend solely on information provided by the fans. Sometimes they can be right but a lot of the times they are incorrect because fans are typically basing their information on rumours, speculation, or simply on what pops in their head. It's not to say the information on either site is 100% false, it's that the information provided is unreliable on best circumstances. Threads that are based on this information are not suggested.

    I noticed you had a section on when the filming started, but what about the filming itself? I remember you posting in another thread about possible filming locales and times, though that was from IMDB I believe and not confirmed.

    Though you could add links to sources and reports on the filming that has happened. Just an idea.

    Good job though.

    No I think you should correct the part about the Q&A, cause therer are no "undisclosed parties". It's fact that GoldGoblin was interviewing this guy called lakiamai. Well, at least one party is disclosed... Plus, the Q&A first appeared on these boards... at Aintitcool

    I'll edit the second part about it being at SHH, but it doesn't matter about who did the interview.

    Yes I will list the update change in the first post.

    Thank you PM for making this thread worthwhile. My thread wasn't nearly thought out well enough, and you even put my name in this one! You didn't have to do that...Looks good, I'll keep my eye out for anything not in the thread...

    Also, my thread is now closed, courtesy of Morg. Thanks Morg.
