Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 Concept Video Shows Battle With Vulture

Posted: 06/16/2021 in Screen Rant Articles


A new video posted by Sam Raimi shows off the concept for a battle with Vulture from Spider-Man 4. With all the hype surrounding Spidey films of late, fans might be interested to see what might have been if Raimi’s sequel had not been scrapped. Fortunately, fans did eventually get to see a Spidey-Vulture showdown in Spider-Man: Homecoming, though it is unlikely Raimi’s ideas for the conflict were used.

Raimi’s first Spider-Man film was released in 2002 to commercial and critical acclaim. He followed it with Spider-Man 2, pitting the titular hero against Doctor Octopus, a fan-favorite arch-nemesis from the comics. Spider-Man 2 was another success for Raimi, and he went on to Spider-Man 3, which proved a more difficult film. Not only did he have to live up to the hype from his first two successful films, but continued studio interference with the story and choice of the villains resulted in a film that was not up to Raimi’s previous standards. Following that, Raimi and the studio reconsidered his planned Spider-Man 4, and it was decided to go in a new direction for future Spider-Man films.
