Everything Wrong With Spider-Man 3 Is Why The Franchise Got A Reboot

When the final movie in the first Spider-Man trilogy changed Peter Parker’s motivational motto from “With great power comes great responsibility” to “shit happens” was the perfect moment to call for a do-over. Let’s see what other Cinema Sins Spider-Man 3 committed.

Judging from the positive reviews of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the notion that a superhero movie can’t support multiple villains has been tossed out, giving Spider-Man 3 no excuse — it’s just a bad movie.

    The simple fact is Sony’s movie for spider man were almost up and if they did not do anything with it they would return back to marvel. Thats the core reason they did a reboot.

    • The need to make a new spiderman movie to renew their licence did not require a reboot. There was nothing stopping them from making a Spiderman 4.

      The horribleness of the third movie wasted a couple of the franchise’s best villains while screwing up its continuity. That’s why a reboot was needed.

  • I remember being really annoye when I watched this about that meteor landing right next to them and they didn’t hear a damn thing.

  • I didn’t think Spider-Man 3 was a bad movie on it’s own, but it’s major issue was it totally ruined what the first two movies spent so much time establishing. Without the context of the first two movies it might have been okay, but given the context of the first two movies, it was bad.

  • It really needed to be split across 2 movies. Spidey vs Sandman in one (forgetting the Ben subplot) with the black suit bonding with Eddie at the end setting up Spidey vs Venom in the next movie, with the Harry Goblin’s story spread across both movies.

    • That would’ve been pretty good, actually.

      But the fact that Raimi always hated Venom as a character was always going to be a problem. Sony practically rewrote the script over the sound of his angry screams in order to appease internet people chanting Venom’s name for half a decade.

  • To hold the rights, Sony should have just paid Roger Corman to make a budget movie that never gets released. The reboot movie was lame.
