“Spider-Man” guru Sam Raimi says he’s open to new to new possibilities for the fourth film in the franchise.
In an interview with Scene Magazine, Raimi revealed that he’ll begin work with the new screenwriter on the fourth film following the WGA strike, but the decision of participating as writer or director will depend upon approval from Sony Pictures.
In terms of direction for the next film, Raimi revealed he’s open to new ventures. “It doesn’t have to follow the movies that we’ve made,” explained Raimi. “I’d very much like to see Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, so I have a personal interest in that, but certainly anything’s possible. Spider-Man’s such a big character in the comic books that he could endure a lot of different interpretations.”
No matter the direction he’ll take, Raimi explains he has a clear idea of what kind of Spider-Man he’d prefer to work with.
“He’s most powerful to me as an adolescent,” described Raimi. “The idea of being married counters that a little bit. It’s not that you couldn’t tell a good story with a married Spider-Man, but my favorite Spider-Man is the unmarried one.”
