Amazing Spider-Man 2 Director Marc Webb recently discussed Spider-Man 2 with the Hollywood Reporter. In it he discussed the larger than life nature of the film, and the usual criticisms when there are multiple villains in a super-hero flick:
“There was a moment deep in the (first film’s) post-production process where a giant lizard smashed through a wall chasing a boy-man in a unitard and I said, ‘This is not grounded.’
I’m going to embrace the spectacle,” he said. “I’m not going to be beholden to smallness. I want it to be fantastic, to be big, to command and express that feeling when you’re a kid and reading the comics. … I didn’t want to hide or shy away from that.”
“We’re obviously familiar with the complaints people had (about multiple villains), we’re very careful to make sure the stories intertwine. For Peter Parker, it’s very important that you create obstacles that are difficult to overcome.”
What do you think, do too many villains ruin a movie, or is it the writing that really counts? Comment below.
