Overview
Two years have passed since the mild-mannered Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) walked away from his longtime love Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) and decided to take the road to responsibility as Spider-Man. Peter must face new challenges as he struggles to cope with "the gift and the curse" of his powers while balancing his dual identities as the elusive superhero Spider-Man and life as a college student. The relationships Peter holds most dear are now in danger of unraveling as he clashes with the powerful, multi-tentacled villain Doctor Octopus aka "Doc Ock" (Alfred Molina).

Peter's life-long yearning for M.J. becomes even stronger as he fights the impulse to abandon his secret life and declare his love. In the meantime, M.J. has moved on with her life. She has embarked on an acting career and has a new man in her life. Peter's relationship with his best friend Harry Osborn (James Franco) has been overshadowed by Harry's growing vendetta against Spider-Man, whom he holds responsible for his father's death.

Peter's life becomes even more complicated when he is pitted against the powerful new nemesis, "Doc Ock." Peter must now learn to accept his fate and harness all his superhero talents in order to stop this diabolical madman in his octagonal tracks.

Easter Eggs
On Sony Picture Home Entertainment’s release of the 'Spider-Man 2' Special Edition you can find a few hidden extras, as you may have expected.

See Stan Lee In The Movie:
Access the bank robbery with Doc Ock. Now find the part when Spider-man gets smashed into the wall and a big piece of brick falls on the ground. Right before it hits the ground you'll see Stan Lee dodging the brick and yelling "Watch Out!"

Japanese Promo:
At the Main Menu on Disc 1, highlight 'Special Features' and press the ENTER button on your remote. Then highlight 'Commentaries' and press ENTER. When the next menu appears, highlight 'Off' under the words 'Technical Commentary.' Then press the RIGHT arrow button on your remote, followed by the UP arrow button. A spider icon will light up. Press ENTER to see director Sam Raimi in a filmed Spider-Man 2 promo made for a Japanese press group.

Willem Dafoe makes a cameo:
On Disc 2, access the 'Making the Amazing' option. Within the first screen (the play-all screen) go to the 'Play-All' option and press UP. The left tentacle should be highlighted. Select it by pressing ENTER to see a short clip of Willem Dafoe helpnig to "motivate" Alfred Molina

I Wish I Were a Rich Man:
At the Main Menu on Disc 2, highlight 'Gallery' and press ENTER. When the next menu appears, press the UP arrow button on the remote. The zigzag lines over Spider-Man's head will light up. Press ENTER to see Molina singing a few bars of "If I Were a Rich Man." (The versatile Molina played the role of Tevya in "Fiddler on the Roof" on Broadway.)

This Easter Egg is a contribution from Jarmo Hänninen & Stefan Spadoni.
