Kidzworld's got some cool facts on the upcoming Spider-Man movie starring Tobey Maguire who plays Peter Parker and Spiderman, and also stars Kirsten Dunst.

One of the coolest super heroes on the planet will be making his big screen debut on May 3, 2002. Obviously, I'm talking about your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Tobey Maguire snagged the lead role as Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, Kirsten Dunst plays his love interest, Mary Jane Watson and Willem Dafoe plays the villainous Green Goblin. Check out these interesting facts about the upcoming Spider-Man Movie.

1 Tobey Maguire spent several months preparing for the role of Spider-Man by practicing Yoga, gymnastics, trampoline work, weight lifting, biking, running as well as kicking and punching.


1 The audience will be able to see points of view of New York City through Spider-Man's eyes from angles that no one has seen before. Spidey clings to buildings, jumps from ledges and swings between and around New York's skyscrapers. Only the birds can see the Big Apple like the wall crawler.


1 During production, four Spider-Man costumes were stolen from the Sony Pictures Studio lot.


1 Producers didn't want the fight scenes to look "martial artsy" so a fight choreographer invented fighting styles to fit the characters of Spider-Man and the vicious Green Goblin.


1 Studio work for Spider-Man was shot in Los Angeles. Outside photography was filmed in New York and on the streets of LA that were made to look like New York.


1 Spider Wrangler, Steve Kutcher, used special make-up to paint colors on the back of a live Black Widow Spider that lands on Tobey Maguire's hand. Steve had four assistants helping him control the movements of spiders on the set.


1 Stan Lee, the creator of Spider-Man, will have a walk-on part in the flick.


1 The webbing on the outside of Spider-Man's costume is raised so it appears 3 dimensional.


1 Oakley lenses were used for the eyes of Spider-Man's costume.


1Tobey Maguire (Spider-Man/Peter Parker) and Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson) began dating while filming Spider-Man. Watch their real-life chemistry bubble over onto the big screen! Unfortunately, you won't see the sparks fly between the two at the flick's premiere - they broke up.


Are your spidey senses already tingling? This flick is gonna be a huge hit and a definite must-see - so mark your calendars for the Spider-Man movie on May 3, 2002. Oh, and reserve your Spidey costume for next Halloween cuz ya know the web slinger will be one of the most popular get-ups!

    Im sorry that you has such friends that seems to enjoy entertaining themselves by being mean to you.  They is just people that you hangs out with cos you says you hasnt anyone else to hang out with.... not friends.  I doesnt think you should think of them as friends either and then its gonna be easier to move on. Is there any way you can hang out with other people by eg [what other posters said] taking up the new activities? And you has friends on KW :) :D

    If they call you fat and stupid, they are not your friends. Your so called 'friends' are just using you. You need to find your truest friends. Clearly, they are not your truest friends.

    Society will not be soft to you always, just because YOU are soft. You must have a strong background. Also they are not your friends. You know what they are doing to you?They are packing a gift box looking all attractive (friendship) and filled with hurt ...like Pandora's box.  Just move on. Be alone n discover more of the world. Or just make new friends.I was in a state like you some months back. Now I moved on n I have 3 best friends. That time I thought too that they r my only friends. You will not find the world until you set out for the world.

    They are not your friends, really. You should leave them and move on. This might sound difficult, but being alone is better than being with an untrue friend. You'll make better friends soon, anyway. Plus, WE are here for you! :D
