Sam Raimi Wanted To Pay The Audience Back With Spider-Man 4


Sam Raimi has revealed that he wanted to make Spider-Man 4 as a means to apologies to the audience for Spider-Man 3, which was a bit of a mess.

Raimi revealed this during a recent interview with Total Film (via GamesRadar).

The filmmaker had a bit of a torrid time making Spider-Man 3 and he would be the first to admit that mistakes were made on that movie.

I’m pretty certain we can place most of the blame on how that film turned out on Sony Pictures and their constant interference.

However, Raimi has accepted part of the blame for how the movie turned out.

He’s now revealed that he wanted to make Spider-Man 4 as a means to apologise to the fans and the cinemagoers for the mess that was Spider-Man 3.

Raimi also revealed that he had a “big plan” for the movie.

Here’s what Raimi had to say when he was asked why he wanted to make Spider-Man 4 in the first place:

I messed up the third one a bit, Spider-Man 3. I had a big plan in my head to pay back the audience for that, with a great Spider-Man 4. But I couldn’t get the script good enough in the time I had before its release.

Raimi went on to reveal that after the events of Spider-Man 3, he’s found it difficult to watch superhero movies.

However, he did admit that he’s been “super impressed” by how impactful MCU films such as The Avengers and Iron Man have been.

He’s been so impressed with the MCU that he’s even expressed an interest in reuniting with Tobey Maguire to create Spider-Man 4.

With Maguire’s surprise appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home landing so well with audiences, there could be scope to make that movie happen!

Doctor Strange 2 is set to hit cinemas in the US on May 6th and May 5th in the UK.
