‘Spider-Man’ Trilogy: Sam Raimi Wants To Make Amends For Messing Up ‘Spider-Man 3’
Remember the Tobey Maguire “Spider-Man” trilogy directed by Sam Raimi? I remember watching the trilogy as a kid and immediately became a fan of Tobey Maguire’s portrayal as the web slinger. Despite all this, “Spider-Man 3” was not up to the mark and there’s something that Sam Raimi wants to do about it.
According to Inquisitr, everyone loved the way Sam Raimi brought his version of “Spider-Man” on screen but with “Spider-Man 3” putting a poor performance at the box office, it led to a reboot of the franchise. Now that even the reboot failed to deliver and a new Spider-Man in the making, Sam Raimi would love to get another chance at making the movie and is more then happy to do it for Marvel.
According to recent reports, Sam Raimi also confessed to the fact that he messed up “Spider-Man 3” and believes that Marvel has everything in order with their reboot of the web slinger. He stated that he is aware that the studio might not need his services, but if they do, he would be more than happy to take on the role.
It is being said that it was the dance sequence and the songs that repelled audiences away from the movie. This aforementioned dance sequence happened when Peter was sporting the venom suit and had become a supposed better version of himself.
Another reason for the movie’s failure is believed to be when Sam put in Topher Grace too in the role of Venom. According to many, the director took it too far by putting in Venom too in the movie. Quite honestly, Venom did have a small role in the movie, which in a way killed an opportunity to further explore more of the villain. Especially, after Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus became such a big hit, establishing another villain with “Spider-Man 3” would have done wonders for the movie.
Io9 added that despite the failure of “Spider-Man 3,” “Spider-Man 2” is considered one of the best comic book movies of all time, so maybe Sam Raimi could still get a chance to direct the movie if the bosses at Marvel Studios feel really generous. As of now, the web slinger will be seen as a high-school student in “Captain America: Civil War” that will release next year on May 6th.
