Promoting the "Spiderman 2" DVD (out in stores tomorrow, folks), director Sam Raimi took some time to address the third and final chapter of the webcrawler's adevtures. He revealed that he and is brother Ivan (who also helped him out on Army Of Darkness) are in the very early stages of the story, waiting on some visuals to help him concoct the first draft.
The main question on everyone's mind, however, is about the main heavy Spidey will fight this time. Raimi was cautious in his comments, pointing that he needs to know where the character is going, before putting someone in his way.
"I actually haven't figured it out just yet," he said. "I'm trying to determine Peter Parker's journey as a human being, what it is that he'll be learning on this next adventure, as a kid growing up, what life lessons [he'll experience]. Once I know what that is, I'm going to try to develop obstacles in his path, like any dramatic writer would do. And out of those conflicts will come the drama. Either he'll be able to overcome these conflicts or he won't. But once I know his journey, and therefore the conflicts that are in his path, I'll choose that villain that best represents those conflicts. That's the way in which I've been approaching this, and I'm still not quite there in determining the villain."
Columbia and Marvel previously announced a summer 2006 filming schedule, with a May 2007 targeted release.
