Sam Raimi Hasn’t Seen “Amazing Spider-Man”

One person who doesn’t have an opinion on the “Spider-Man” reboot is the previous trilogy’s director Sam Raimi. The “Oz: The Great and Powerful” filmmaker tells The Huffington Post that he hasn’t seen last year’s relaunch of the franchise.

However there is no animosity towards those involved, in fact Raimi is exceedingly gracious:

Well, I’m a big Marc Webb fan and a giant fan of Emma Stone. And of Andrew Garfield… and I love the producers of that movie because they are dear friends, and the writer. But, I haven’t had the guts to go see the movie yet. Because I don’t want to go to my girlfriend’s wedding. I just can’t bring myself to do it. I don’t have the guts.

But, I hear it’s great. My wife even loved the picture and said it was a wonderful, excellently produced, beautifully acted, brilliantly written Spider-Man picture. She’d tell me the truth and that’s what she said. I think I handed the torch to Marc and I hear that he ran with it and succeeded and made a brilliant picture. I’m happy for him and all the team.
