Sam Raimi, known for directing the Spider-Man trilogy, sat down with MTV and weighed in with his thoughts on Marvel's plans for yet another reboot:
I saw [both Marc Webb movies], they’re great. And I’m really glad that Marvel’s taking it to high school. I think that’s gonna be refreshing, and just like my favorite of the Spider-Man comic-books. And I have a lot of faith that they really know their stuff… The difficulty of going through high school is so unique to a superhero. It’s unique and that’s what Spider-Man’s all about, so that they’re gonna explore that head on is very exciting.
Raimi has no affiliation with this new reboot, but seeing as he is a massive Spider-Man nerd and the director of two great Spider-Man films, it is interesting to hear his take.
