There were a couple of reasons for this. 1) Sam Raimi (director) and Bruce Campbell are good friends and Bruce normally gets cameo's in his films. 2) There was a rumor before and after Spider-man 3 Bruce Campbell was going to become Mysterio as Mysterio constantly blames Spider-man for his failed acting and stunt gigs.(source)

From Deadline - 'Spider-Man 4'′ scrapped: (January 2010) [...] Sony Pictures decided today to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after franchise director Sam Raimi pulled out of Spider-Man 4 because he felt he couldn’t make its summer release date and keep the film’s creative integrity. [...] My sources tell me that Raimi told Sony Pictures: “I can’t ...

One possible reason might be the desired to avoid too much angst. A Gwen Stacy plot has to end with Peter blaming himself for Gwen's death, and being blamed by her father. We already have that plot element in any Spider-man origin story with the death of Uncle Ben. Running the same plot device twice in the same movie seems wrong. Those of us who were ...

Neither in the comics, nor in the Sam Raimi movie does Spider-Man kill the person responsible for Uncle Ben's death (in the comics he dies of a heart attack, in the movie he falls out of a window. Although Spider-Man 3 reveals that it was actually Flint Marko who shot Uncle Ben). I think the important part is not the death of the culprit, but the following ...

From Wikipedia entry of Spider-man's power - The ability works through thin layers of cloth, such as the fabric of his costume, but not through materials such as the soles of shoes. When Peter Parker needs to crawl without changing into the costume, he removes his shoes first. Spider-Man's wall-crawling ability has increased with time, most ...

I'd reason it's because Mary Jane was the more famous/iconic choice for Peter's love interest at the time of the original films and the writers/producers wanted to try their best to appeal to a wider audience. The Mary Jane entry on Wikipedia notes: According to co-creator Stan Lee, Mary Jane was originally intended to be simply a rival for Gwen Stacy ...

Specifically in the films, Parker grows a hooked chitin from his fingers. Assuming he cannot do the same with his feet, he needs only to apply compressive stresses (think arches) to transfer the weight to his hands. So his feet would supply minimal support where his upper body would compensate for every movement.

In the Amazing spider-man they are following the same path as th real comics accept for the wrestling part.In the real story the events occurs as - In high school, a radioactive spider bite gave Peter superhuman powers. Creating the costumed identity of Spider-Man for himself, Peter sought first to exploit his newfound powers as a masked wrestler ...

The reason behind The Hulk's reboot is the negative reviews of the film (Its a different fact that some of people like me liked the old Hulk movie more). And the new Hulk film is also made up his entry in Marvel cinematic universe. For case of Spider-man Sony and Rami's Clashes are the reason for cancelling Spider-man 4 and then Sony decided for a reboot to ...
