Sam Raimi explains why he didn’t make Spider-Man 4

Sam Raimi has revealed why he did not make Spider-Man 4.

Speaking to Vulture, the director explained that he decided to leave the franchise after realising he would be unable to produce a quality film on the studio’s schedule.


“It really was the most amicable and undramatic of breakups. It was simply that we had a deadline and I couldn’t get the story to work on a level that I wanted it to work.

“I was very unhappy with Spider-Man 3, and I wanted to make Spider-Man 4 to end on a very high note, the best Spider-Man of them all. 

“But I couldn’t get the script together in time, due to my own failings, and I said to Sony, ‘I don’t want to make a movie that is less than great, so I think we shouldn’t make this picture. Go ahead with your reboot, which you’ve been planning anyway’.”


Raimi recently revealed that he “hasn’t had the guts” to see The Amazing Spider-Man.
