Raimi agrees with the "criticism" of Spiderman 3

Sam Raimi has admitted that he agrees with some of the criticism against his 2007 blockbuster Spiderman 3.

Despite grossing $891 million worldwide, Spiderman 3 became the scorn of many fans of the Marvel web-slinger due to an overly complicated plot. The film featured three villains, not including the evil version of Spidey himself.

In an interview featured in the print edition of DVD & Blu-ray Review, Raimi was asked about the continual complaints that there were too many villains in the third film of his hit franchise.

“I think having so many villains detracted from the experience. I would agree with the criticism,” he said.

Raimi hopes to bring his new-found sensibilities from his last film Drag Me To Hell to the next Spiderman.

“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 splendour.

“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.”

As previously reported, Sony is prepping Spiderman 4 for an early 2010 shoot and a May 2011 release. Stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst have both signed on to return.

It is unknown if Maguire, Dunst or Raimi will agree to star in the proposed Spiderman 5 and 6, which will supposedly be a two-parter. These two films could potentially be the first in a new series reboot.
