Sam Raimi wasn’t sure if he could face making Doctor Strange 2 after the experience of “terrible” Spider-Man 3.

It’s pretty clear that Spider-Man 3 was a horrifying experience for everyone involved. It is believed to be an executive interference textbook case that severely stopped the pioneering run with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man.

Things are getting better now. Spider-Verse is alive at both Sony and Marvel, and Sam Raimi is currently overseeing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Still, it’s pretty clear that Raimi’s experience with Spider-Man 3 had a big impact on him.

In an interview with Collider, Raimi talked about how difficult it is to return to superhero movie director after Spider-Man 3. He said it was bad enough and he wasn’t sure if he could face it again.

“I was the director of Spider-Man 3, so I didn’t know I could face it again because it was so terrible. The internet was booming, people hated the movie, and they certainly let me know about it. It was difficult to get it back. “

When his agent called him about the opportunity to oversee Doctor Strange 2, Raimi wondered if he could do it. “They’re really demanding, that type of photo, and I felt,’Well, that’s a good reason,'” he said.

Raimi went on to praise Doctor Strange’s character, saying, “My favorites are right there.” He also had the kind words of the first movie, saying that director Scott Derrickson “did a great job, a great job.”

“I wasn’t thinking of doing another superhero movie. It just happened,” Raimi said.

First released in 2007, Spider-Man 3 is famous for being stuffed into Venom at the very end because of the film’s disadvantages. The result was a pretty messy movie, but at the time I liked it and was called “a great ending for both the standard three-movie arc and the best comic book trilogy in movie history.” ..

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released on March 25, 2022. Visit here to read about all MCU movies and TV shows scheduled for the rest of 2021.
