Average teenager Peter Parker is transformed into an extraordinary super hero after he is accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider. When his beloved uncle is savagely murdered during a robbery, young Peter vows to use his powers to avenge his death. Deeming himself “Spider-Man”, he sets about ridding the streets of crime, bringing him into conflict with malevolent super-villain “Green Goblin.”
Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) gives up his crime-fighting identity of Spider-Man in a desperate attempt to return to ordinary life and keep the love of MJ (Kirsten Dunst). But a ruthless, terrifying new villain, the multi-tentacled Doc Ock, forces Peter to swing back into action to save everything he holds dear.
New York City is in the throes of Spider-mania, and Peter Parker finally has the girl of his dreams. But just when it seems like things can’t get any better, Spider-Man must fight the most terrifying trio of villains he’s ever encountered–the deadly Sandman, the New Goblin, and Venom–plus the enemy he discovers within himself.
