A Touching Father-Daughter Scene in ‘Spiderman 3’

Los Angeles, CA–My daughter gave me Spiderman 3 for Father’s Day and in watching it I was pleasantly surprised by the touching father-daughter scene between Flint and Penny Marko (pictured). The hard luck Marko is a none-too-bright small-time thug who steals to pay for medical treatment for his daughter Penny, who is stricken with an illness.
While on the run from the police after escaping from prison, he accidentally falls into an experimental particle accelerator that molecularly binds him with sand, giving him shapeshifting abilities and transforming him into “The Sandman.” In the scene above, he’s broken out of prison and, while evading the police, goes to visit his little daughter. As she sleeps he stuffs a stack of letters he wrote her from prison under her pillow. The letters were marked “Delivery Refused.” The daughter wakes up and tells him she misses him and gives him a locket with her picture. Marko tells her, “I promise I’ll make you healthy again. I’ll get the money.” He keeps the locket with him and often looks at it. To watch the clip, click here.
