In the movie the reason spidey loses his powers is the more enigmatic part. I will try to explain my take on this by taking a closer look at his scenario step by step. In the movie we see a relatively younger Spider-Man (people who rescue him from the train fight remark that he is still a kid) who despite his IQ level shown in Spider-Man 2 (for identifying ...

Early on in the film, before he's turned into a supervillain, Octavius has Peter over for dinner. His wife, Rosie, asks Peter if he has a girlfriend, to which he answers he doesn't know, prompting Octavius to advise, "Love should never be kept secret.

They could have made Doctor Octopus seem like the strongest person in the universe, but if Spiderman could have knocked him out with a single punch it would have looked a little ridiculous. We would have had a film with Spiderman running away/getting beaten up the entire time, until ...

Peter is shown to have financial trouble, relationship problems, educational struggles, etc and it is all because he is Spider-Man. As we progress through the movie, Peter himself doubts his choice to be Spider-Man with the daily bugle giving him a bad reputation and ...

I will try to answer it by my own thoughts. In one line, the answer is: The main reason behind his losing powers was he started to hate himself because he could not balance between his normal life and criminal-hunting life anymore. This hate was not explicit, but it existed silently in his inner heart. He was economically weak, so he had to sell Spider-Man'...
