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.“
