Director Sam Raimi Shares Why ‘Spider-Man 3’ Didn’t Workout

Lots of fans were shocked to witness Sony reboot the entire "Spider-Man" franchise with a new actor and a director. Now, original franchise helmsman Sam Raimi offers a public explanation as to how the final movie did not work out. Continue reading for more details of this scoop.

With the present time hitting the year 2015, the issue behind Sony’s "Spider-Man" franchise reboot has been well over eight years old by now. “The Amazing Spider-Man” has had two film installments that were generously shown to the public and the production people. The film franchise finally moved on about the whole chaos of it all. However, it may never be too late for those avid viewers of the franchise to hear the detailed explanation as to why “Spider-Man 3” became the last. Movie helmsman Raimi shared his honest and critical insight on the matter and it would probably serve as the main explanation as to why things didn’t pan out the way they thought it would.


According to Collider, Raimi was conversing with Chris Hardwick in the Nerdist podcast when the director laid out his critical take as to why “Spider-Man 3” went short on the high expectations set for it.

“It’s a movie that just didn’t work very well. I tried to make it work, but I didn’t really believe in all the characters, so that couldn’t be hidden from people who loved Spider-Man. If the director doesn’t love something, it’s wrong of them to make it when so many other people love it. I think [raising the stakes after Spider-Man 2] was the thinking going into it, and I think that’s what doomed us. I should’ve just stuck with the characters and the relationships and progressed them to the next step and not tried to top the bar,” Raimi said in the Collider interview.

From that explanation alone, it’s safe to say that when the director doesn’t feel it, the viewers will end up not feeling the movie as well. Director Sam Raimi is actually in production with Starz for his upcoming TV series “Ash vs The Evil Dead,” according to Screen Rant.

That concludes Sam Raimi’s critical explanation of the reboot of Sony’s “Spiderman.” For more information about your favorite movies, celebrities and TV series, keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG).
