Marvel Producer Expresses Interest In Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Returning


Spider-Man: No Way Home was one of the biggest films of 2021. Not only was it a celebration of the character of Spider-Man, but of Spider-Man in the cinema over the past two decades. Seeing Spider-Men from the past putting on the costume one more time as a way to please the fans and seemingly end their stories.

But with the popularity of seeing the Spider-Men of the past many fans have been asking for a continuation of the unfinished The Amazing Spider-Man series starring Andrew Garfield as the web slinger. But now it appears that there is interest is seeing the original series by director Sam Raimi to return as well.

Film producer Curtis Grant recently served as Executive Producer on the upcoming Marvel series Moon Knight for Disney Plus. But he is also known for co-producing the Sam Raimi trilogy of Spider-Man films from 2002 – 2007. The producer recently spoke with Gizmodo and expressed his desire to see Sam Raimi to return to the character:

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.

Some may know that before The Amazing Spider-Man series Sam Raimi was indeed planning on a Spider-Man 4 that ended up getting canceled due to him and the cast falling out with SONY over creative differences. Thus resulting in SONY green-lighting the Andrew Garfield series as to not loose their control over the character.

With Sam Raimi just finishing his work on the recent Doctor Strange sequel it would be interesting to see what a new installment 15 year later in the series would look like. Perhaps we could see Old Man Peter swinging around with his daughter Spider-Girl like in the comics. Only time will tell.
