Once Spidey frees himself he convinces Harry to disclose the location where Doc Ock is holding Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst). This leads to the climactic battle at the waterfront labratory located on  the Hudson River. To pull off this scene, director Sam Raimi ("Evil Dead") turned to McCune Design to build miniatures of Doc Ock's waterfront labratory. Here are the details:

McCune Design built a 60' long 1/4 scale wharf and warehouse in the tank at Sony’s stage 30. The miniature was destroyed and submerged over a three-day period according to the storyline. An interior complete with “Doc. Oc’s” Fusion Machine, and a copper-sheeted lifeboat were created for interior destruction shots. A miniature electrical-generating platform was pulled with a high-speed winch as it careened down the wharf into the warehouse impacting and destroying the side of the structure.


In SPIDER-MAN 2, the latest installment in the blockbuster Spider-Man series, based on the classicMarvel Comics hero, Tobey Maguire returns as the mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is juggling the delicate balance of his dual life as college student and a superhuman crime fighter. Peter's life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled "Doc Ock." When Doc Ock kidnaps MJ (Kirsten Dunst), Spider-Man must swing back into action as the adventure reaches new heights of unprecedented excitement.
