Before Tom Holland or Andrew Garfield, there was a successful “Spider-Man” trilogy starring Tobey Maguire. The trilogy was a wonder in itself as it showed everyone’s favorite web-slinger in full throttle. Every movie in the trilogy proved to be successful at the box office, however, the final installment “Spider-Man 3” met with a few criticisms. Topher Grace who starred as Eddie Brock/Venom in the final part recently had something to say about the movie.
According to Cinema Blend, “Spider-Man 3” was not and is still not considered a good movie. There were a few flaws in the movie that even director Sam Raimi confessed to, however, one of the cast members of the movie Topher Grace still believes that the movie was a good one despite what people think about it.
According to the “Spider-Man 3” star, the movie did perform well for Sony and he was really impressed by the way Sam was directing the movie. He also went on to call Sam the President of a small country because the collections of “Spider-Man 3” at the box office were equivalent to that of a small country’s Gross National Income. Calling Sam Raimi really talented, Topher still believes that Sam did an incredible job on the movie.
Many believe that the reason for a rebooted version of “Spider-Man” starring Andrew Garfield was introduced because the studio and Sam Raimi could not come on the same page when it came to what did they want to do with a potential fourth movie.
Some even believe that the villains in the Tobey Maguire “Spider-Man” movies were not properly used and that the expectations from the movie were also really high.
Entertainment Weekly added that despite the fact that “Spider-Man 3” received mixed reviews, the movie went on to gross about $890 million worldwide and according to some statistics by World Bank, it is greater than the 2007 GNI of the African country Comoros. After two adaptations, Spider-Man will be seen in the MCU in next year’s “Captain America: Civil War.”
