This freebie was exclusive to corporate empire Wal-Mart. It’s an inconsequential bit of Spider-whimsy, in which Peter Parker does some friendly neighbourhooding while thinking about proposing marriage to Mary Jane.
Looking for signs from the universe that getting hitched is a good plan, Web-Head stops a truck crashing into a bakery with an enormous wedding cake in the window, and TIES A KNOT in a window cleaners’ safety line. Do you see what they did there? If that's not a sign, we don't know what is.
There’s no Eddie Brock, but we do encounter a certain Flint Marko on his way to a date with a particle accelerator. Since the plot of the film suggests that maybe the universe wasn't quite so set on Parker getting engaged immediately, the signs aspect falls a little flat, and there's little else here to make it a must-read, but it's still better than much of the film.
