Synopsis: Peter Parker has finally managed to piece together the once-broken parts of his life, maintaining a balance between his relationship with Mary-Jane and his responsibility as Spider-Man. But more challenges arise for our young hero.
Peter's old friend Harry Obsourne has set out for revenge against Peter; taking up the mantle of his late father's persona as The New Goblin, and Peter must also capture Uncle Ben's real killer, Flint Marko, who has been transformed into his toughest foe yet, the Sandman. All hope seems lost when suddenly Peter's suit turns jet-black and greatly amplifies his powers. But it also begins to greatly amplify the much darker qualities of Peter's personality that he begins to lose himself to. Peter has to reach deep inside himself to free the compassionate hero he used to be if he is to ever conquer the darkness within and face not only his greatest enemies, but also... himself.
News/Gossip:Spider-Man 3 was the big man on campus on 3 March with footage shown exclusively to WonderCon attendees in San Francisco.
The panel opened with the introduction of a message especially constructed for WonderCon from Marvel Chair, Avi Arad.
He said that this preview of Spider-Man 3 was offered to WonderCon fans in gratitude and that, "No one else will see it." You can't get much more exclusive than that. With a confident smirk on his face, he added, "Third time's a charm."
Edward Brock, Jr. (Topher Grace) sits in a church pew asking [God] to kill Peter Parker.
Cut to Spider-Man flying through the city. They really have the CGI down now! Spidey looks great -- limber and realistic.
We see Peter's science teacher with strange black goo in a lab. He says to Peter, "It's sure attracted to you," as Peter captures it in a tumbler.
Goblin (Willem DaFoe) says menacingly to GG, Jr. (James Franco), "You know what you must do!"
A chase between Goblin, Jr. and Spidey ensues. GG, Jr. releases several green grenades and Peter says, "I hate those things."
The black goo has taken over Spidey. Mary Jane warns Peter, "I'm worried about you." Peter replies, "We have to stop him [Franco]."
The only noticeable difference as Spidey tears through the city is the dark black suit in place of the red and blue....
Cut to Peter tearing off the black suit--but it keeps coming back! Several pieces tear off and drop...onto Edward Brock, Jr., who recognizes that Spider-Man is Peter Parker.
Then we see the most thrilling aspect of this trailer -- the audience could barely contain their squeals -- as, finally, for only a flicker of a moment -- VENOM! He looks hot. And ferocious. And he devilishly smiles with thos razors for teeth.
Grin and all!
