If you remember, Sam Raimi had some unfilmed ideas for his fourth “Spider-Man” movie, but that project never happened because, well, “Spider-Man 3” turned everybody off (although I will proudly admit I didn’t mind that movie at all).
In a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Raimi says that he thinks of “Spider-Man 4” every time a new Spidey film gets released: “It’s hard not to, because each summer another Spider-Man film comes out! So when you have an unborn one, you can’t help but think what might have been. But I try to focus on what will be, and not look into the past.”
Unlike many movies from the MCU and DCEU, Raimi was actually a hardcore comic book fan and was inspired by Stan Lee’s comics and “great artists like John Romita and Jack Kirby who told stories with visuals that had a real in-your-face, over-the-top presentation.”
Raimi’s longtime storyboard artist Jeffrey Henderson elaborated further on about Raimi’s unfinished fourth installment “It would’ve been one absolutely kick ass movie,” he wrote. “We were working on some crazy cool stuff, because everyone…felt that Spidey 3 was a bit of a ‘missed opportunity’, [and[ really wanted to help Sam take SM4 to another level so he could end the series on a high note.”
