A strange black entity from another world bonds with Peter Parker and causes inner turmoil as he contends with new villains, temptations, and revenge.
The movie was released the same day as the Spider-Man 3 (2007) game. (May 4, 2007)
It's me! Peter Parker! Your friendly neighborhood... You know. I've come a long way from becoming the boy who was bitten by a spider. Back then, nothing seemed to go right for me, and now...
Kid in Times Square: Hey look, it's Spider-Man!
Peter Parker: People really like me.
The first time the Symbiote covers Peter's Spider Man suit and "copies" it, Peter isn't wearing the spider man mask, however the symbiote copies the mask exactly, as if Peter were wearing it. However, considering the symbiote affects his mind and amplifies his emotions, it's possible the symbiote copied the suit from Peter's memory.
During the opening credits, snippets from the first two films can be seen. Also, some of the filmmaker's names appear and then blow away, as if made of sand. The black symbiote also makes a brief appearance.
In 2017, in anticipation for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony released an "Editor's Cut" of Spider-Man 3. This cut mostly utilizes an unused score, alternate edits of scenes, a restructured story, and scenes both added and removed throughout. With all of these changes, this version runs 2 minutes shorter than the theatrical version.
