Again in 2002, David Koepp wrote the screenplay for Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man movie. The film was an enormous hit and outlined the superhero film style for years to return. However Koepp didn’t return to jot down the sequels for Raimi’s Spider-Man franchise. In an interview with Collider, Koepp revealed what he had deliberate for the webbed wall-crawler in Spider-Man 2 & 3.
“Mainly [my trilogy idea] was the telling of the Gwen Stacey/Harry Osbourne story however I spaced every thing out in another way. I wished Gwen to be killed in the course of the second film, as a result of that follows kind of the Empire Strikes Again mannequin, and I had totally different villains I wished to make use of. Only a totally different strategy to inform that story.”
So if David Koepp had remained with the franchise, Spider-Man 2 would have targeted on Gwen Stacy and Harry Osbourne, and Physician Octopus wouldn’t have been the principle villain. It’s troublesome to estimate how significantly better or worse this model of Spider-Man 2 would have been, however contemplating the Spider-Man 2 film with Doc Ock that in the end received made is continuously counted among the many best superhero motion pictures ever, issues labored out for followers.
So far as Koepp is worried, he received the prospect to work on a Spider-Man film once more, when he was requested to return to scriptwriting duties for the sequel to Marc Webb’s The Wonderful Spider-Man. Whereas Koepp initially wished to make use of the chance to complete the trilogy he had initially wished to make for the webbed wall-crawler, he got here to understand the second to carry that individual Spider-Man film saga earlier than audiences had handed.
“There was a time possibly seven or eight years in the past after I was gonna come again for a pair Spider-Man motion pictures, after they’d finished their first Wonderful Spider-Man. On the very first Spider-Man I kind of deliberate out what I believed the primary three motion pictures ought to be, after which all the various personalities it did not work for me to maintain writing the Spider-Man motion pictures…”
So I used to be excited to return again and attempt to end the story I began telling within the first one, and as we had been about to agree that I used to be going to do this, I pulled out all of the outdated stuff and I began outlining these two motion pictures and I believed, ‘Boy, you may’t go residence once more. That second has handed. The time after I was actually feeling it was 10 years in the past, and there is no level in attempting to recreate it.’ So I bailed.”
And so ended Koepp’s on display screen relationship with Spider-Man. However regardless of not having had the chance to inform the complete Spider-Man saga he had envisioned, the author can take satisfaction in the truth that he was part of the beginning of the superhero motion pictures growth that has grown to dominate Hollywood in current instances. In the meantime, Spider-Man is gearing as much as arrange his new cinematic universe beneath Sony, alongside Venom, Morbius, and a bunch of fan-favorite characters from the comics.
