Sam Raimi Talks About THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and Spider-Man 4

Sam Raimi's previous comments about Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man made it seem like he would never watch the film, comparing such an action to going to watch your ex-girlfriend on a date with another guy. Well, recently the director of Oz The Great And Powerful and the original Spider-Man trilogy revealed to HeyUGuys that he finally got over his trepidations and watched the movie, here's what he thought.
"It was very hard for me to see the new Spider-Man movie, I felt so attached to it, I couldn’t see Spider-Man with another director; it’s like my love, and I didn’t want to walk in on my love with someone else. It was just like that. Then I got over myself last week and said, ‘just see the damn thing’. And I did, and I loved it. I actually felt free. I thought, ‘why am I carrying around this baggage?’ Of course the next Spider-Man story should be told, and [Marc Webb] did a wonderful job telling that. I loved the movie, and I’m looking forward like a fan to the next instalment. I love the comic book, and now I don’t feel bound, and I’m really glad somebody’s remaking it again."
That's great that Mr. Raimi enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man. I hope great things for his future as a film director, and I can't wait to watch his Oz The Great And Powerful, I'm really looking forward to that. So what did Sam Raimi had to say about his departing with Sony Pictures on the "now dead" fourth-installment of his Spider-Man series?
"It really was the most amicable and undramatic of breakups: It was simply that we had a deadline and I couldn't get the story to work on a level that I wanted it to work. I was very unhappy with Spider-Man 3, and I wanted to make Spider-Man 4 to end on a very high note, the best Spider-Man of them all. But I couldn't get the script together in time, due to my own failings, and I said to Sony, "I don't want to make a movie that is less than great, so I think we shouldn't make this picture. Go ahead with your reboot, which you've been planning anyway." And [Sony co-chairman] Amy Pascal said, "Thank you. Thank you for not wasting the studio's money, and I appreciate your candor." So we left on the best of terms, both of us trying to do the best thing for fans, the good name of Spider-Man, and Sony Studios."
Well we all already knew about Anne Hathaway was gonna be Black Cat in "Spider-Man 4". I do like the reboot as much as the first & second, but I do feel the original series should've ended on a high note. So what do you webheads think of this news?? Comment below and let me know!
