Spider-Man® 2 explores the Peter's character as he faces new challenges
and struggles with "the gift and the curse," desperately trying
to balance his dual identities as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man
and his life as a college student. Tormented by his secrets, Peter finds
that his relationships with all those he holds dear are in danger of unraveling.
His life-long yearning for M.J. (Kirsten Dunst) becomes even stronger
as he fights the impulse to reveal his secret life and declare his love.
His friendship with Harry Osborn (James Franco) is complicated by the
young Osborn's bitterness over his father's death and his growing vendetta
against Spider-Man. Even Peter's beloved Aunt May (Rosemary Harris), who
has fallen on hard times after the death of Uncle Ben, begins to have
doubts about her nephew. Peter's life is about to become even more complicated
as he encounters a formidable new foe -- Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina).
Peter must use all the powers at his disposal to try to stop this diabolical
madman in his octagonal tracks.
