One of the most exciting things about the new Doctor Strange is not the multiverse, but the return of the director of the legendary original trilogy of spider-man: Sam Raimi. The filmmaker began his time in comic book cinema by setting up Tobey Maguire’s wall-crawler which is now classic, general culture and absolute childhood of generations. Although that trilogy ended in bittersweet, the filmmaker has made peace and returns to Marvel with the apparent intention of designing the first MCU film closest to terror. However, there is something that many of us expect and it is nothing other than the continuation of his trilogy on Peter Parker.
The first indication of something similar to that dream being fulfilled came with Spider-Man: No Way Home. With a lot of cunning, nostalgia and the goodness of the multiverse, Marvel managed to recover Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in an unprecedented crossover of licenses for the film business. Since then, the door for the return of the franchises of both histriones has remained open. And with Sam Raimi so close, the truth is that it would not be at all complicated for him to take the reins of his old trilogy.
While talking to the magazine EmpireRaimi was asked what other superhero movies would top his wish list. “I have always loved Batman. If he ever spotted the bat-signal in the air, he’d come running.”, was his first response. But later she confessed that even before continuing with Doctor Strange he would put the arachnid first.
“If I heard that deep, gurgling laugh from The Shadow coming out of the dark, I’d be tempted too. And Spider-Man would be ahead of Doctor Strange, but I don’t want to put him on the list!” he said cautiously.
Cautious or not, Raimi has hit the nail on the head and it will be hard to forget. Although as such the filmmaker did not confirm which version of Spider-Man he would be willing to visit, the range of possibilities right now is wide. For example, thanks to the recent installment of the superhero there is the possibility that both the Garfield saga and the Maguire saga continue without problems.
On the other hand, Tom Holland’s trilogy is the one that has a safer path. With Jon Watts concluding an era for the youngest cinematic Peter Parker we’ve ever known; and with his attention now focused on reinventing fantastic four, perhaps a new trilogy is cooking with a different command. Sam Raimi could well take over the new Spider-Man to introduce us to a more mature version of Holland.
The possibilities are endless like the multiverse itself. And Marvel has already shown us that there are no limits to the study. To prove only the increasingly solid rumors of the multiple surprise appearances that we will see in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. At least we can say that Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier is already a safe inclusion.
What other surprises will Marvel have prepared for us? The Doctor Strange by Sam Raimi will hit theaters on May 6.
The entry Spider-Man 4: Sam Raimi does not rule out returning to the saga was first published in Cine PREMIERE.
