Sam Raimi Defends Tobey Maguire’s Controversial Dance Scene in Spider-Man 3

Spider-Man 3 It is not remembered as the best film neither of Spider-Man nor of Sam Raimiwhich now returns to the superhero genre with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Much has been said about the problems of a film that brought together too many themes and villains not to delve into any of them, putting an end to the saga despite being the highest grossing of the three. And one of its most controversial aspects was the famous dance scene of a Peter Parker seduced by the dark part of the symbiote, something that now Sam Raimi himself remembers and defends.

“I’m glad people find it funny!”

And it is that at the time, the critics pointed out that both the staging and the interpretation of Tobey Maguire in said scene they were ridiculous And they didn’t fit in the movie. Now, in a recent interview on the occasion of the premiere of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Raimi has defended and justified said scene in which we see a Peter Parker in a black suit and believing himself to be the king of the mambo.

“Well, we actually wanted you to it was funny. It was Peter Parker’s version – this pathetic kid – of what his evil self must be. But he’s so exhausted, he’s so out of it, that’s the version of him. And that was not well received by the public. 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”, says the director, thus justifying that version of Peter Parker that in the eyes of others was pathetic.

All in all, it seems that Raimi was actually looking for cause that feeling in the spectators; and of course she got it.
