Story In Details
Scientist Richard Parker records a video message to explain his disappearance. Later, he and his wife, Mary, are aboard a private jet hijacked by a man sent to assassinate Richard. With the pilot dead, the plane crashes.
In the present, Richard's son Peter continues to fight crime as Spider-Man. He pursues and apprehends Aleksei Sytsevich, who attempted to steal a truck containing plutonium vials. During the chase, Spider-Man rescues OsCorp Industries employee Max Dillon.
Norman explains his illness is hereditary, and Harry is at the age where it first develops. Norman gives Harry a small device he claims contains his life's work. The next day, Norman dies and Harry is appointed the new OsCorp CEO. He alienates the OscCrp board, which has been privy to Norman's secret biogenetic projects for foreign military powers.
Presuming they are now friends, Max becomes obsessed with Spider-Man. While tending to some maintenance in an OsCorp laboratory, he loses his balance and falls into a tank of genetically modified electric eels.
The first symptoms of Harry's illness show, and he uses the device Norman gave him to deduce that Spider-Man's blood could help save him. He asks Peter, who has been selling photos of Spider-Man to The Daily Bugle, for help finding Spider-Man. Peter refuses, unsure of what effects the transfusion would have.
Harry's assistant, Felicia, informs him of equipment that could help him, so he makes a deal with Max (now calling himself "Electro") to get him back inside the OsCorp building. There he finds a suit of armor and other equipment made by Norman, as well as venom from the now-destroyed genetically altered spiders. Instead of curing him, they transform him into a hideous, goblin-like creature.
Peter uses information left by his father to locate the video message in an abandoned subway station's hidden lab. Richard explains he had to leave because he was unwilling to cooperate with Norman Osborn's biogenetic weaponization plans. Peter then hears a voicemail from Gwen, telling him she was offered the scholarship in England and is heading to the airport earlier than expected. He manages to catch her and professes his love for her, and they agree to go to England together.
Electro causes another blackout, and Peter heads off to fight him. Gwen follows, and they kill Electro in an explosion caused by overloading his electricity supply.
Afterward, the transformed Harry arrives equipped with Norman's armor and weaponry; upon seeing Gwen, Harry deduces Spider-Man's true identity and, wanting revenge for being refused the blood transfusion, kidnaps her. He fights Spider-Man at the top of a clock tower, and though Spider-Man subdues Harry, he is unable to save Gwen.
Five months later, Peter has given up being Spider-Man and often visits Gwen's grave. Harry is healing from his transformations, and his associate (the "man in the shadows" from the first film) breaks Sytsevich out of prison, gives him the code name "Rhino" and equips him with an electromechanical suit of armor.
Rhino rampages through the streets, and a recording of Gwen's graduation speech inspires Peter to return as Spider-Man and confront him.
