Frustrated, Jameson decided to pay $10,000 to Gargan to be the subject of an experiment.

Reception

Critical Response

The Spectacular Spider-Man 2 received critical acclaim. Based on 248 reviews collected by review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, The Spectacular Spider-Man 2 has a 84% overall approval rating from critics, with an average score of 8.1 out of 10. The site's consensus states: "With a Standout, young and visible cast, top-notch effects and excellent directing makes this film one Marvel's best films yet. Though with at times slanted narrative, unneeded and stiff villains, the film recovers through the second half of the writing". Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 77out of 100 based on 54 reviews, with an average user score of 8.2/10. CinemaScore audiences gave The Spectacular Spider-Man 2 an "A" grade rating on an A+ to F scale. 

Chicago Tribune's Mark Caro stated that Sam Witner's Scorpion is "Unneeded, but Memorable" and called Marton Csoka's Doc Ock a "Rushed, but effective Villain" also stating that "Peter's love triangle in the film adds a new depth to Marvel's ever-growing film series. Lerman, Roberts and Roden all help add that dimension, alongside Highmore's role as Harry, that was a Standout character and almost as good as Hiddleston as Loki". Kenneth Turan, of the Los Angeles Times, gave the film a 3.5 out of 5 "Through the film has some characters who if not in the film it would not change, though Lerman 's performance alongside Roberts' was amazing. The writing and storytelling in the second part of the film was amazing feeling as if a new film, alongside Sangster's performance". Scott Foundas of Variety said it is "One of Marvel's finest films, it improves the form the first film with better effects, acting and, in the second half saves itself from doom with a whole new and better writting and storytelling. Some stiff and rushed villains, however,Highmore's performance saves the villain category". Leslie Felperin of The Hollywood Reporter said: "Highmore's performance was amazing as he is able to make Harry an hero to antagonist through the whole film, minus Spidey and the other characters the film would still be worth watching same as Abel's role as a new diverse role for Brock who is intreging more than he has been in recent comics and Lerman's and Roberts chemistry also help along with adding a triangle with Roden's performance as Mary Jane but with Some unneeded villains but effective and some much drama helps expand and revolutionize the Marvel Cinematic Universe". 

IGN's Richard George felt 'Sangster was the "Heath Ledger of the film, and alongside the acting of Lerman's love Triangle between Roberts and Roden which did not dissapoint and the beautiful chemestry of Lerman's and Roberts relationship is cut half to improve on and expand Peter's relations with Harry, Jane and Aunt May which makes the film better along with Eddie Brock's new role in the Spidy mythos helps add to the mystery of the Universe, but criticized some characters added to the film, that had no effect at all in the film and with some rushed villians on paper the film looks stuffed, but the lenght of the film helps make it pass as one of Spider-Man's best flicks." Tim Robey of The Telegraph said "Use of Menken, Norman and Symthe take up time but the length of the film helps with awesome Acting, Effects and Writing makes sure the villians do not drag down the film". Simon Reynolds of Digital Spy said eter's past, present and future all intertaine in a sequel that offers bang for your buck. That said you can't help feel the franchise bean counters at work here thanks to all the ominous foreshadowing and unresolved character arcs. Too many cooks and all that..."

Richard Roeper gave the film a B+, stating that "It's about 20 minutes too long and it's overstuffed with too many characters and too many subplots, but there's enough good stuff in The Spectacular Spider-Man 2 to ward optimism about the next chapter of the franchise". Leslie Felperin of The Hollywood Reporter said, "The eponymous hero hits his super-heroic stride here, as does Logan Lerman in the role, especially when Spider-Man's alter ego Peter Parker learns there's always some fine print in a contract with this many benefits. The plot gets itself tangled up in multiple villain strands, but in the main, this installment is emotionally weightier and more satisfying than its predecessor."
