Spider-Man goes back to basics

19 October 2009

Spider-Man 4 will feature less villains and a tighter storyline, pledges director Sam Raimi.

Spider-Man 3 was a blockbuster smash but it also suffered a critical backlash, with critics calling it bloated. And Raimi concedes that juggling three villains in the shape of Venom, Sandman and the Green Goblin was too much.

He said, "I think having so many villains detracted from the experience. I would agree with the criticism.

"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."

He added, "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."

Spider-Man 4 will begin shooting in March. There is no word yet on which villain will feature in the film.
