Recently, Spider-Man director Sam Raimi was asked about the common complaint that Spider-Man 3 had too many villains.
“I think having so many villains detracted from the experience. I would agree with the criticism.”
Raimi also said that he has learned some new lessons and storytelling tricks from doing ‘Drag Me To Hell’.
“I think I’ve learned about the importance of getting to the point and the importance of having limitations, and I’m hoping to take that into a production where I’m actually allowed to explore with more of the tools to pull it off with a little more splendor. I hope I don’t lose that edge that I’ve just found. That would be my approach to ‘Spider-Man 4’: to get back to the basics.”
