With director Sam Raimi’s new film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releasing next week things seem to be on the up and up for the multi year veteran. Having started his film career in 1977 with It’s Murder! and later creating the Evil Dead series in 1981 it’s hard to believe someone like him would have directed a super hero film.
Sam would go onto develop the ever popular Spider-Man series of film that began in 2002 and seemingly concluded in 2007. The series started Tobey Maguire as the titular web slinging hero.
Recently with the popularity of Spider-Man: No Way Home featuring multiple alumni from the Sam Raimi series many fans have been demanding that we finally see the full return of Maguire’s version of the characters.
In a recent interview Sam Raimi while promoting the new Doctor Strange sequel he spoke about possibly returning to the world of Spider-Man:
“I didn’t think it was possible but after jumping back in with the multiverse, I realized that anything is possible now so I’m completely open to it.“
Many know that the Sam Raimi series technically went unfinished, as Spider-Man 4 was canceled when Raimi, Maguire and even Kirsten Dunst had issues with where SONY wanted to take the series. This later lead to The Amazing Spider-Man series of films being made so that SONY could hold onto the IP before it expired.
Since both Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield have both announced that they would be taking a break from acting perhaps we might finally see a conclusion to the story of the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man. See how he and MJ have been able to make things work. Perhaps they may even have their daughter Annie in this universe.
Would you like to see a conclusion to the Raimi-verse of Spider-Man films?
