Sam Raimi has said that he “loved” Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot.
The director of the Spider-Man trilogy previously said that he “didn’t have the guts” to watch The Amazing Spider-Man, but has told Hey U Guys that he has now seen the movie.
“It was very hard for me to see the new Spider-Man movie, I felt so attached to it. I couldn’t see Spider-Man with another director – it’s like my love, and I didn’t want to walk in on my love with someone else. It was just like that.
“Then I got over myself last week and said, ‘Just see the damn thing’. And I did, and I loved it.
“I actually felt free. I thought, ‘Why am I carrying around this baggage?’ Of course the next Spider-Man story should be told, and [Marc Webb] did a wonderful job telling that. I loved the movie, and I’m looking forward like a fan to the next instalment.
“I love the comic book, and now I don’t feel bound, and I’m really glad somebody’s remaking it again.”
Raimi had previously explained his reasons for leaving the franchise.
