Willem Defoe didn’t care for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ either



I’ve mostly exhausted my disdain for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” and spent a good portion of this year praising the improvements I’ve noticed in the materials for the upcoming sequel but there are still a few excerpts of opinions making their ways to the internets. The latest is Norman Osborn himself Willem Defoe chiming in with his impressions of the premise of the film.


Total Film has now caught up with Willem Dafoe, who played Norman Osborn in Raimi’s “Spider-Man,” and also asked for his opinion on “The Amazing Spider-Man.” His answer is not very surprising.

I saw a trailer for the first ‘Spider-Man’ reboot and I thought, ‘This is crazy! It’s not shot for shot, but it’s the same story,’” he explained. “I thought, ‘This is sort of a cynical approach to making money.’ The way Sam Raimi approached it, it was pure in its intentions.

There you have it Ryan. I know, you never responded to our AvsR but that’s salt in the wound. Even  villains thought that movie was lacking!

      In the comics, Parker wasn’t really the loser people like to imagine. Even in the very beginning, yeah, Parker was kind of bullied, be he was also always willing to defend himself. He was super nerdy, but despite this managed to land gorgeous women, like that bombshell journalist he dated – yeah, nerdy Parker dated a beautiful older woman when he was in high school.

      I don’t think it’s fair to criticize the new movie for making Parker too cool because, when you really go back and read the original comics, he was kind of pretty fucking cool – even without the mask.
