I went into every part of Marc Webb’s film skeptical. An Englishman playing Peter Parker? No Mary Jane? A comic film directed by a music video/rom-com director? But when I first saw The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters all hesitation was thrown aside and I was completely blown away. And I wasn’t the only one, prompting many to wonder what Raimi’s thoughts on the new film are. Was he as blown away as many audience members were?
Well the answer is no, Raimi wasn’t blown away, but not because he thought the film was bad, rather because he still hasn’t seen it.
