Moon Knight producer Grant Curtis wants Sam Raimi to continue his Spider-Man story.
Sam Raimi has one of the most colorful directing resumes out there. He made his bones in the industry directing low-budget horror films before helming the first three Spider-Man films. All three films are widely regarded as classics and had a big part in shaping the current superhero-dominated movie landscape.
Following the release of Spider-Man 3, Sam Raimi couldn’t agree with Sony on a direction for Spider-Man 4. This prompted the director to leave the franchise and went back to producing lower-scale horror films and television shows. That was until he was hired to direct Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness, bringing him back into the Marvel fold in a big way. However, one Marvel producer wants to see him continue the story of everyone’s favorite web-slinger.
While speaking to Gizmodo, Moon Knight producer Grant Curtis spoke about the untold stories in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man universe. Curtis worked as a producer on all three of Raimi’s films and hoped that someday, these stories may be told:
“The Spider-Man movies we made were an incredible opportunity career-wise. As a fan, I love the narratives that were generated from those three movies. There were other stories within those movies that did not get told. I hope someday, as any Spider-Man fan would tell you, that all those stories come out and that narrative continues.”
Here is the synopsis for the newest MCU series, Moon Knight:
The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
