Topher Grace Talks ‘Spider-Man 3’

Spider-Man 3 was the third film in the Sam Rami Spider-Man series that introduced new characters into the franchise such as Sandman, New Goblin, and fan favorite Venom. The film was criticized by critics and fans alike for being way too crowded and not enough character development. It’s definitely viewed as the worst film in the franchise. When asked what he thought of the film, Topher Grace (Eddie Brock/Venom) had this to say:

I know the movie did well for Sony, but I also know a lot of people weren’t happy with it. I think Sam is so talented. I remember one time i was on ninth unit. (Laughs) Ninth unit? It’s like he’s running a small country. This summer, there was a movie like that where people are just slamming a big movie studio movie. I would love to see anyone who’s slamming one of those movies try to fit in Sam Rami’s position. He was like the president of a small country – by the way, it had the gross nation income of a small country too. I have huge respect for him. I think, on a whole, he did such a fantastic job [on that trilogy].

Spider-Man 3 was deemed a financial success by making $890.9 million worldwide and plans for a sequel were in the works. Rami expressed interest in introducing villains like The Lizard, Vulture, and the anit-hero Black Cat, but eventually sequel plans were scrapped and Sony decided to reboot Spider-Man with Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield.
