Even if the two movies of The Amazing Spider-Man series failed to live up to the rank of Sam Raimi-helmed Spider-Man trilogy, director Marc Webb thinks his Amazing Spider-Man movies were not disasters.
"It's hard for me to think about it, in terms of regrets. There are so many things that I'm proud of. There was an ambition with the second movie, in particular. The idea that it's a superhero that can't save everybody is something that I'm really proud of." Said Webb.
"I'm really proud of the ambition of that because it's an important message, and I believe in that. I believe in what we were after. They're really, really difficult movies to make. They're complex in ways that people don't fully understand. They weren't disasters." Webb added.
"In terms of regrets, I don't think of it in those terms. I felt really, really fortunate to have that opportunity. That's a whole other long, in-depth conversation that I probably shouldn't have publicly. I loved everybody involved. I really did." The director added.
"I didn't have an adversarial relationship with the studio, at all. There were a lot of very smart people. These are just incredibly complicated movies to make. I am proud of them, in many ways, and I stand by them. I'm certainly not a victim, in that situation." Stated Marc Webb.
