While Sam Raimi has been on the publicity circuit for Ash vs Evil Dead, he dropped an interesting bit of news: he would love to come back to direct another Spiderman movie.
In an interview with The Week, Raimi noted that he messed up Spider-Man 3, and that he’d be back to direct another film if asked:
But Raimi also regrets the way his own run with the Spider-Man character ended, and expressed interest in making another Spider-Man someday. “I messed up on the third one,” Raimi said. “I think they’re so complete now, Marvel. They probably don’t need me anymore. But if they needed me? I’d love to. It’s great to be wanted.”
It’s true: Spider-Man 3 was pretty bad: it absolutely killed Raimi and Sony’s plans to continue the series, and forced them to reboot the franchise. But, Spider-Man 2 is usually ranked up there amongst the best comic book movies ever. Could he redeem himself?
