Sam Raimi explains Spider-Man’s infamous dance scene

We love Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies and above all the second part of the trilogy still stands today as one of the best superhero roles produced. What became the last and final part of the trilogy, however, was a real low water mark and the production was fraught with a number of problems. Especially from studio heads who ended up in conflict with Raimi about the vision and direction of the film. For us fans, it is probably mainly a scene that stands out from the crowd, namely the now infamous Spider-Man dance. When Toney Maguire releases in his new emo form after being corrupted by Venom. In an interview with Fandom told Sam Raimi a little more about how the scene came about and what they thought.

Well, we meant it to be funny, actually. It was Peter Parker’s version – this lame kid – of what it must be like to be his evil self. But he’s so whipped. He’s so out of it that that’s his take on it. And that did not go over well with the audience. But that’s what we were trying to do. So I’m not surprised that people … I’m glad people find it funny! We wanted it to be fun. “

What did you think of the dance the first time you saw it and what is your favorite movie about the net-swinging tricot boy?
