Rob Reiner: Jay. The general critical reaction to the film was almost unanimously enthusiastic, with the general opinion that the film is superior to the original, possessing a dramatic power and emotional content that many summer blockbusters lack. Dana Ivey: Claire Bennett. . Worldwide, Spider-man 2 made $783,964,497, which made it the 3rd highest grossing movie of 2004 worldwide (behind Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Shrek 2), as well as the 15th highest grossest movie worldwide. Though this is not as much as its predecessor, it should still be considered excellent, considering it's a sequel to a very highly regarded movie, and those don't usually do that well in the box-office (such as Jaws 2 and Back to the Future Part II. David Hyde Pierce: Dennis Reed. Altogether, Spider-man 2 made $373,585,825 in the U.S., making it the 2nd highest movie of 2004 (just beat out by Shrek 2) and the 8th highest grossing movie in the U.S. Carey Lowell: Maggie Abbott Baldwin.

Barbara Garrick: Victoria. Harry now has the option of assuming incredible powers to take revenge on Spider-Man. Rita Wilson: Suzy. His mental state is important, however, since he has discovered his father's villainous secrets. Victor Garber: Greg. The true state of Harry's sanity is at the end of the film uncertain. Gaby Hoffmann: Jessica. However, it is also possible the ghost was not a delusion.
Rosie O'Donnell: Becky. Harry's past friendship with Peter and hostility to Spider-Man, as well as growing bitterness with Peter, haunt him, to the point where he imagines a visit from his father's ghost. Ross Malinger: Jonah Baldwin. In the end, when Harry discovers Spider-Man and Peter are the same man, Harry spares his life, but only because New York City itself is endangered. Bill Pullman: Walter. On the other hand, Harry seems especially grateful for a compliment that he has outdone his father's accomplishments, and also blames Peter for having been more respectable than Harry himself to Harry's father. Meg Ryan: Annie Reed. On the one hand, Harry desires revenge on Spider-Man, who supposedly killed Harry's father.
Tom Hanks: Sam Baldwin. Harry's relationship with the memory of his father is also complex. Upon consuming alcohol, a hostility to Peter surfaces, as Harry begins to blame Peter for tolerating Spider-Man, and for ruining Harry's onetime romance with M.J. Two years after his father's death, Harry has become an increasingly bitter personality, as demonstrated by his failure to laugh at jokes. Harry's character is also further developed in Spider-Man 2.
His final act of self-sacrifice redeems him, and, echoing Aunt May's speech on heroism earlier in the movie, he dies with honor. It is only at the end, when Peter makes him realize the true cost of his dreams, that he turns away from the tentacles' influence and reclaims his former identity. The AI in the tentacles then offer him an escape from his failure and agony, and a chance to rebuild his experiment, since it is all he has left; and he willingly listens to them and lets them guide him. His descent into villainy is often interpreted as possession by the mechanical tentacles, but it is far deeper than that: when we see him on the waterfront after the accident, he is a broken man, having lost his wife and his fusion dreams, and he is contemplating suicide ("These monstrous things [the tentacles] should be at the bottom of the river, along with me," he says).
(He tells Peter: "Intelligence is a gift, and you use it for the good of mankind.") This makes it all the more tragic and horrifying when we see what he becomes later on: a half-mechanical lunatic who is willing to risk destroying the city to realize his ambitions. The early scenes in the movie with his wife and Peter establish him as a gentle, peace-loving man who desires to help mankind. Otto Octavius is a deeply conflicted and ambiguous villain. Dr.
"Doc Ock", as he is now called, desperately wants to rebuild his experiment, forcing Peter to use his resurfacing powers to try and stop him and save New York City. Peter's idol, a brilliant, gentle scientist named Otto Octavius, turns into a mechanically-controlled lunatic after a fusion accident. turns increasingly hostile to Peter after he fails to keep a promise to see a play in which she plays a role. M.J.
Moreover, he has learned that his potential girlfriend, M.J., has acquired a new boyfriend. He loses a job, is having trouble with his enstranged friend, Harry, who still thinks that his father's death was the fault of Spider-Man (Harry doesn't know that Norman actually killed himself), struggles with his studies and school work, and finds that he is losing his powers. It has been two years since the end of the last film, and Peter Parker is finding a double life very difficult. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko receive additional screen credit for "comic book & characters.".
The screenplay is credited to Alvin Sargent, with screen story credit given to Alfred Gough, Miles Millar, and Michael Chabon. Alfred Molina plays the role of the villain, Doctor Octopus ("Doc Ock"). The film, directed by Sam Raimi, stars Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco reprising their roles of Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Mary Jane Watson and Harry Osborn, respectively. on June 30, 2004.
Spider-Man 2 is the sequel to the popular 2002 film Spider-Man and was released in the U.S. The device he uses seems to be inspired by those used for inertial confinement fusion. Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) uses tritium to create nuclear fusion. The first one million copies of the US PSP included the movie free.
Spider-Man 2 is the first movie to be released in UMD format for the PSP. A hospital scene in which the removal of Octavius' tentacles is attempted likely contains allusions to scenes in Raimi's earler Evil Dead films. Reports claim that the studio hopes to make at least six films. Before Spider-Man 2 was even released, it was announced that Spider-Man 3 would be released in 2007.
In the scene where Parker watches police cars go by, he is actually eating a tofu hot dog. Tobey Maguire is a vegetarian. He is the man in the far right during the scene where Spider-Man stops the train. Voice actor Phil LaMarr makes a cameo as an extra.
Actor Bruce Campbell also makes another cameo as the usher who won't let Peter into Mary Jane's play. Spider-Man creator Stan Lee makes yet another cameo appearance (as he did in Spider-Man) during Spidey's first battle with Doc Ock at the side of building walls. Throughout the whole movie, the only points when Otto Octavius is called 'Doc Ock' or 'Doctor Octopus' are only when Jonah Jameson suggests the names at the Daily Bugle, and in the final battle at the docks, where Spider-Man calls him "Ock." One of the suggested names is Doctor Strange, which is Steve Ditko's other major co-creation for Marvel Comics. Otto Octavious's catchphrase - "The power of the sun - in the palm of my hand" is strikingly close to a slogan for a handheld gaming device called Pixter - "The power of Pixter in the palm of my hand.".
