    The "might be the only one" argument really isn't valid since there are at least some people on the Internet would agree with you.

    I respect what Spider-Man 1 did for the genre but there are aspects of that film that were outdated literally the next day it came out lol

    If it wasn't for Goblin's power ranger suit, I'd put them on equal footing
    but doc ock was perfect, so SM2 edges it out for me

    Yeah that Goblin Suit really knocks it down a peg

    yeah for a surprisingly large amount of them. I mean, look up the list of good picture Oscar winners and you’ll be like “seriously, people thought THAT was a great film?”

    87083722_10158198904619171_5359471242346758144_n.png Sam Raimi has cancelled his appearance at an upcoming convention because he'll be busy with Doctor Strange.

    They're probably mistaken about him actually filming in March, but sounds like he's in London getting things ready.

    Edit: They have since removed the references to Doctor Strange from that post.

    Is Sam Raimi official yet? Why don't Marvel announce him as director?

    All but official at this point. Let's go!

    I also watched Sam on the newest season of Jon Favreau's Netflix cooking show last night. Coincidental timing, eh.

    Interesting pick, I felt like this Dr.Strange movie pretty much has a set in stone story that they want. It is the 1st Marvel Studios movie after Endgame with a recurring character, BW is dead, Eternals new, and Shang new. Maybe they plan on having Sam sticks around for years.

    But it's bot gonna be the first movie! I get the urge to want to dismiss BW because she's dead and the majority of the movie happens in the past but they had been working on the script for over 3 years and there's not a single doubt in my mind that the movie will be used to set up a ton of things to come in phase 4! And same goes with all the other movies u mentioned -- then there's the Disney + series shows that will move things along even further. By the time Strange 2 comes out I bet u a ton of things will have changed in the Marvel landscape. Let's not forget this is Marvel and in Kevin we trust!!

    Iron Man and MySpace. Go back and get RDJ to dub in "TikTok" in there, then watch that get phased out quickly too.

    To be honest I don’t think we should fear ageing. It should be a snapchat for the time it was in and if it does seriously date then there’s more incentive to make more of it later.

    for example, it’s actually pretty fun to watch old episodes of doctor who because it’s a bit like travelling back in time just by being itself

    I'm excited but also a little worried about this. The last big feature film he directed is that Oz movie right? And having just watched it again since the first time it came out, it's awful. I hope we get Spider-Man 1 & 2 Raimi and not Spider-Man 3 and Oz Raimi. Please god

    Honestly I've got faith in this given how passionate Raimi and Feige are for the character. Oz was terrible but I'm confident he's learned from that.

    Wonder if Raimi will return for Strange 3 of for any other MCU films. Hopefully he is excited again about superhero films and will have a good working relationship with Marvel/Feige going forward.

    I hope he does. He added a unique visual style to the proceedings here

    Given the overall polarizing reactions this movie is getting, I'm not sure he'll be brought back unfortunately.

    A big part of that is the plot which I doubt he could have changed at the stage he joined - maybe also why Derrickson left.

    This was a great return to form for Raimi. It was clearly a “Marvel Film” but it also had his signature gore and goofy humor too. And of course, a certain cameo that we all knew was coming.

    I've missed Sam Raimi. He is still a great director, and particularly good with comic book adaptations. Hope to see him being a little more active in future, whatever he feels like doing.

    While not having seen it, whatever this film will be, isn’t Raimis fault. This had to go through so many changes and troubles from the first idea. Hope Taika could hold his vision with Thor Love & Thunder, that he pitched 3-4 years ago
