Sam Raimi was so very shell-shocked due to the negative reaction to Spider-Man 3. He says that he will not get back to direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
In the recent interview with the reporters of Collider, The Evil Dead mastermind who was there behind the making of Spider Man back in 2002 helped out in paving the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe. He said that he never planned about making another superhero film after the venom. He says that this is spewed over the 2007 Spider-Man 3.
Furthermore, he says that I didn’t even think that I would face it again because this was so awful for me as being the director of Spider-Man 3. Raimi says that the internet revved up and people disliked that movie. They let me know about this through their negative reactions. So, it was very much difficult for me to take back. My agent then called me up and said something. He says that they are looking for a director at Marvel and you are one whose name came up. After that, he asked me whether I am interested or not? I replied that I would wonder if I could still do that or not.
While the first two Spider-Man were loved by the people and fans but the 3rd one wasn’t a hit. Raimi’s third chapter featured emo evil Peter Parker. The movie became a full lightning rod for criticism and mockery.
Raimi further says that they are very much demanding and I felt that this reason is enough. The character of Doctor Strange was liked by me. He was not the favorite one but there in the favorite list. I loved the movie a lot and thought that Scott Derrickson did a wonderful job. But I don’t think that I would be able to do a superhero movie again.
