Sam Raimi Has Finally Seen THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

So what did he think of The Amazing Spider-Man? Was he unimpressed like James Franco? Plus, with a sequel for Oz The Great And Powerful already in the works at Disney, does Raimi think he'll return to direct?

Sam Raimi's previous comments about Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man made it seem like he would never watch the film, comparing such an action to going to watch your ex-girlfriend on a date with another guy. Well, recently the director of Oz The Great And Powerful revealed to HeyUGuys that he finally got over his trepidations and watched the movie, here's what he thought.

"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."

And in the same interview, Raimi also revealed that he doesn't think he'll return for a sequel to Oz The Great and Powerful. You can read his thoughts on the matter below.

"I don’t really have a plan to direct the sequel. I’ve put into the picture one or two loose ends in case another director wants to make the picture. if Disney made a lot of money and the audience really wanted to see one then they would make one, but I was attracted to it because of the story of the growth of this human being, and I don’t think the second one would have the thing I would need to get me interested, but I couldn’t speak about what would take place in it."

It's looking like Oz The Great and Powerful will be the first bona fide hit of 2013, opening weekend box office numbers are currently tracking for $90-100M. Based on those numbers, Disney has already announced that they've hired Mitchell Kapner to pen another script. It sounds like Raimi won't return but if the film is as successful as many think it will be, expect Disney to throw dollars at Raimi till he changes his mind. The film opens today in US theaters.
