‘Spider-Man 4’ Is Still Possible, According To Sam Raimi
Since the success of Spider-Man, people have been looking back on the old Spider-Man films to discuss what stories they would like to see.
Andrew Garfield’s hopes of returning for another ‘Amazing Spider-Man film to complete his trilogy were dashed when the star claimed that he was taking a break from acting. Rumors have circulated that there could be a fourth film in Tobey Maguire’s series. The film would have The Vulture as its antagonist. It was canceled before production began.
Interview with Moviepilot Sam Raimi, who directed the Maguire Trilogy and is currently promoting his movie Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness, spoke out about the cancellation of the fourth installment in the series.
We had a script years before and were already in pre-production. It was as simple as that. I couldn’t make a better script than the deadline required.
Raimi said, “I felt I had made a mistake on Spider-Man 3. I wanted to repay the Spider-Man 4 and be the greatest Spider-Man. Sony told me that I couldn’t put together the script in such a short time. I suggested that you continue with your alternate Spider-Man storyline, as I didn’t want the audience to be disappointed.
Raimi previously stated that the return to the Spider-Man movies “sounds beautiful.” However, he said that he had not pursued this idea. In the Moviepilot interview, he confirmed that he no longer has any Marvel projects and is open to working again with Tobey Maguire.
“I thought it impossible, but I was able to jump back in with the multiverse and realized, just as Doctor Strange, that anything is possible now. It’s possible, so I’m open to it.”
