Raimi backing away from Spider-Man?

SamRaimi.jpgSam Raimi has revealed that he won't be working on the story for the next Spider-Man film and that there's going to be a brand new writer on board.

It's also unclear if he will be directing the film, it all depends on the script, and with neither Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst signed up for the next film it could be looking like the Raimi Spider-Man could be at an end.

The story from The Guardian hints that the producers, which would be Marvel and Avi Arad, are looking to take the series in a new direction for the next three episodes.

However I think they should have learned their lesson from the last film, where rather than following Sam Raimi's version they pushed him to add in extra villains and dilute the film.

Although I think that Raimi is doing the right thing by backing away from the film, if Marvel and Arad are going to leap all over it, better that he walks away. With Maguire and Dunst unsure if they are returning, I think we might have seen the end of the Spider-Man series.
