I am pretty excited for the next 'Spider-Man' movie, even after the terrible mess that Spider-Man 3 was. The first two Spider-Man films were awesome! The second film was by far the best! Turns out Sam Raimi had full control over the first two movies, but when the third one came around everyone had their own opinion on what should be done. Raimi says:
"They really gave me a tremendous amount of control on the first two films, actually, But then there were different opinions on the third film and I didn't really have creative control, so to speak."
See when everyone starts coming in with ideas on what should be done, things are bound to get messy, and thats exactly what happened with the third Spider-Man film. What this next Spider-Man need is one voice, one person to call to call the shots and it should be the director of the film. Funny enough Sam Raimi agrees with me.
"The best way for me to move forward on films is that I've got to be the singular voice that makes the creative choices on the film."
I know Sam Raimi is a great director. The first two Spider-Man films were great, and his most recent flick 'Drag me to Hell' was fantastic, Sony has to put him in the drvers seat and not bother him while he is trying to win the race. Raimi goes on to say:
"I love Spider-Man so much that I'd like to continue telling Spider-Man stories. But only under those circumstances where I think I can honour him."
With Raimi set up as the one and only Captain of the film, learning from past mistakes, I am confident that Spider-Man 4 will end up being another awesome Sam Raimi movie. What do you think?
