Although Raimi's vision isn't happening anytime soon, it looks like the new Spider-Man movies have at least succeeded in introducing the villains that were supposed to be in the fourth movie.

During a recent interview with Yahoo!

"Far From Home" now in theaters, Sam Raimi was reminded of the aborted "Spider-Man 4" that was in development with him directing, saying, "I think about it all the time". Now, 12 years after leaving Spider-Man behind, the director gave a rare shout out to the Spider-Man movie that never was. However, Raimi was unsatisfied with the script that was taking shape and left the project in early 2010 due to creative differences.

I think about it all the time.

What did you think of J.K. Simmons' cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home?

While Jennings was informing officers he had a gun in the console, police learned the vehicle had been reported stolen. Jennings was pulled over about 11 a.m. after an officer noticed that his vehicle tags were expired, police say.


Since leaving the Spider-Man franchise after Spider-Man 3, Raimi has spoken publicly about his planned Spider-Man 4 film. But I try to focus on what will be, and not look into the past.

We may never know how Sam Raimi's fourth film may have turned out but we do know that it was set to feature a team-up between the Vulture and Mysterio.

"Before it became a tag, it was really just the end of the movie: right as he feels he's stepping up as Spider-Man, he has the rug pulled out from under him again", he added. It's a shame how these things sometimes work out. Well, J.K. Simmons is one of the few who's accomplished this, as one of Spider-Man: Far From Home's big surprises was the actor cameoing as J. Jonah Jameson, a role he previously played in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.
