Director Sam Raimi has certainly heard the fan's concern's over his last superhero film, and vows to make the fourth film even better. Coventry Telegraph recently spoke with Raimi who revealed his approach to Spider-Man 4, using a more simplistic approach that he learned on his last film, Drag Me to Hell.
"I think I've learned about the importance of getting to the point and the importance of having limitations, and I'm hoping to take that into a production where I'm actually allowed to explore with more of the tools to pull it off with a little more splendour.
"I hope I don't lose that edge that I've just found. That would be my approach to Spider-Man 4: to get back to the basics."
When asked about the criticism of Spider-Man 3 and the multiple villains in the film, Raimi said he agreed.
"I think having so many villains detracted from the experience. I would agree with the criticism."
