In Spiderman (2002), when Green Goblin attacked Aunt May, she was chanting a prayer. Green Goblin asked Aunt May to complete the prayer before attacking her. Why did he do that?
Aunt May was praying. The ending of the prayer is "deliver us from evil," and the Goblin, being the sadistic evil bastard he is, wanted Aunt May to finish the prayer as a twisted sick joke, or simply put - irony.
