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?

1 Answer 1


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.

    I know the scene is supposed to be scary and make you think "Poor dear Aunt May", it always seemed kinda funny to me. "Last night, while I was praying, a flying green man with yellow eyes came in through the wall and asked me to finish the prayer, then left."

  • I always laugh when I see that scene. My brother and I often used it as a kind of meme in our inside jokes. Commented Feb 10, 2015 at 10:52
