Sam Raimi worked on Sony’s Spiderman trilogy in the early 2000s, however Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness marked his first directorial work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, fans have been wondering if he would be willing to direct future projects in the MCU. Some have even questioned whether he would tackle another Spiderman Movie. However, it appears Tobey Maguire would need to be wearing the suit for this to happen.
Sam Raimi has good things to say about Marvel Studios
Although Sam Raimi led the team led by Tobey Maguire Spiderman trilogy, he hadn’t previously directed for Marvel Studios Doctor Strange 2. But apparently, his return to the superhero genre turned out to be a positive experience. Not only did moviegoers appreciate Raimi’s first foray into the MCU, but the director himself enjoyed working on it the continuation.
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Raimi had nothing but good things to say about Marvel Studios. He praised the establishment of the franchise, particularly when it comes to maintaining storylines and character arcs.
“It’s very exciting to see how Marvel has streamlined its operations,” Raimi said. “It’s a wonderful place to work. That didn’t help you as a filmmaker when the productions were all one-offs before there was a company that just cared about the integrity of the characters.”
Of course, there are many more characters to discover in the MCU. And given Raimi’s history with Spider-Man, some are wondering if he could pursue a web-slinger project next. If so, it’s unlikely to be a Tom Holland Spiderman Movie.
Sam Raimi would only direct a Spider-Man movie starring Tobey Maguire
During Sam Raimi’s interview with the Los Angeles Times, the filmmaker was asked if he would consider directing another film Spiderman Movie. His response reiterated his love for the character. However, it cast doubt on future involvement in Tom Holland’s story arc.
“I love Spider-Man,” Raimi told the outlet. “And I love Tom Holland in the role. [But] If I were to do a Spider-Man movie, it would probably have to be with Tobey or he would break my neck.”
Given Raimi and Maguire’s history, it makes sense that they would want to revisit Spider-Man together. As of this writing, neither seems to be aiming for such a reunion. but Marvel’s Multiverse does offer endless possibilities.
Could there be another ‘Spider-Man’ movie starring Tobey Maguire?
So after Marvel broke up the multiverse, Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire could reunite for one more time Spiderman Movie? Nothing is confirmed, but the couple doesn’t appear to be closed to the idea.
Speaking to Fandango in April, Raimi even admitted that the thought of working with Tobey again “sounds nice.”
“I think anything is possible,” he admitted. “I don’t really have a story or a plan.”
He added, “I don’t know if Marvel would be interested in that right now. I don’t know what they think about it.”
Meanwhile, during a YouTube discussion with Deadline’s Pete Hammond, Maguire seemed reluctant to say “close the chapter” when describing his Spider-Man return. Maybe we’re analyzing too much, but it sounds like his time as Peter Parker could go on.
Of course we’ll have to wait and see Spiderman 4 is in the cards for the MCU. In the meantime, fans can check out Raimi’s latest work Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The film is now in cinemas around the world.
