The director talks about making the "Spider-man 3" DVD, how hard it is to watch his own movies, and what he'd like for #4

Wizard Magazine got a chance to pin down Sam Raimi even with his busy schedule to talk about the Spider-man franchise and how he sees it in the future. Among the topics are the Spider-man 3 DVD which he claims will be the definitive version of the film on home video - he "won’t be back to supervise another “Spider-Man 3.”

In addition, they talked about Spider-man 4, and whether or not Raimi could hand over the reins to someone else:

If you had to take a break and pick a director to replace you on the franchise, is there anyone at the top of your list?

RAIMI: Because I love Spider-Man I would just say—I don’t want to pick someone. I don’t know if I’ll be directing the picture or not, but I’d like to say that it would be somebody that was the best gift I could give to Spider-Man—someone who understands him and loves him and could bring his passion and love to the character. A character director probably; no one else.

Looking back, you’ve worked on Spider-Man in some way for nearly eight years. Has the excitement stayed with you?

RAIMI: I’m just as excited about the character, and so in that sense, yes. Although the physical energy level between how I felt before I started shooting versus what was left of me on the last day of photography, I was so exhausted at the end of “Spider-Man 3” I can’t tell you. My love for the characters and my passion for the stories are the same, but I was just a shell of the person that I was after all of those movies.
