Sam Raimi on Spider-Man 2 & More Updates

Sci Fi Wire talked to Spider-Man 2 director Sam Raimi. Here’s a clip…

Sam Raimi, who directed the upcoming sequel film Spider-Man 2, told SCI FI Wire that he contemplated pitting more than one adversary against Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) before settling on just one: Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina). “Well, there were a lot of different iterations of the story, and at times there was more than one villain, and at times there were more than two villains,” Raimi said in an interview. “But it all came down to trying to focus on what I felt was the strongest aspect of the film and diminishing everything else so that it could live.”

In addition to the casts appearance on Oprah, NBC’s website said that upcoming celebrity appearances would include Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Alfred Molina (on seperate occasions) for both the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”.
