Life is always full of regrets and for Sam Raimi, a big one is his unmade fourth Spider-Man film.
During a recent interview with Yahoo!, Sam Raimi talked a bit about his unmade fourth Spider-Man film. As you may remember, Sam Raimi directed the first three Spider-Man films with the first two often considered to be among the best superhero films ever made and the founders of the current superhero craze. Sadly Sam Raimi’s fourth film never happened due to creative differences with Sony. And apparently, this remains one of his biggest regrets.
During the interview, he stated that is almost impossible not to think about his unmade Spider-Man film with a new one coming out every year. He then stated that he is trying to focus on the future and not the past:
I think about it all the time. It’s hard not to, because each summer another Spider-Man film comes out! So when you have an unborn one, you can’t help but think what might have been. But I try to focus on what will be, and not look into the past.
From the look of things, Sam Raimi really wished he could have made things work with Sony for Spider-Man 4.
We may never know how Sam Raimi’s fourth film may have turned out but we do know that it was set to feature a team-up between the Vulture and Mysterio. Ultimately we would see these two villains in the Marve Studios’ Spider-Man films but to think we could have had these two years ago. It’s a shame how these things sometimes work out.
