In between the original Spider-Man film trilogy with Tobey Maguire, and the brand new Spider-Man that works with Marvel, there was another franchise that took a different take on the wall crawler. Ultimately the film's lack of success led to the new era with Marvel, but how does the director really feel about it all now? Marc Webb could be forgiven for being frustrated by the film's reception and might even have blame he'd like to place elsewhere. Instead, he prefers to look back positively on the films as he says he has no regrets about the movies or how they were made. According to the director...
Marc Webb's endorsement of the movies to Collider isn't 100% glowing. He does say he stands by them "in many ways" which would seem to suggest that there are some ways in which he doesn't. However, he also appears to absolve anybody else of blame by saying that the movies were very complicated and that he doesn't feel that he was a victim, so this wasn't a case of a movie being dictated to him by a studio or decisions being made without him. He's taking responsibility for the final product.
Marc Webb also goes beyond simply taking responsibility and also fully endorses the Amazing Spider-Man movies. While both movies, and the second one especially, were critically panned, Webb says that the second film has some very important themes in it which he's actually quite proud of having created.He says the movie was incredibly ambitious.
While it was the lack of success from Amazing Spider-Man 2 which ultimately led to Sony looking to strike a deal with Marvel, it doesn't appear that the director has regrets about the film's that he helped to bring to the world. Looking back, what do you think about the Amazing Spider-Man films now?
