Director Sam Raimi & Tobey Maguire Talk 'Spider-Man 2'[Thursday, June 5th, 2003]
Director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire have been speaking with MTV about returning for a sequel in Spider-Man 2.
"It was great putting on the Spider-Man suit again. It was like coming home," Maguire said during a break on the Los Angeles soundstage where he and his colleagues are putting together the eagerly awaited sequel to 2002's "Spider-Man."
"We're trying to keep as many elements of the story secret as possible because we really want to surprise the audience," Raimi explained. "I want to entertain them on the day [it opens]. I want them to come in and see the movie and not really know anything about it. Nowadays, movie theatrical trailers give away so much and TV commercials give away so much. If there's anything left I can save for the audience to really give them the experience of the movie when they see it, that is what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to save that for them."
Here's what the gang is willing to divulge: it's two years later and Peter Parker is settling into his photography career (when he isn't wall-crawling) while Mary Jane Watson is finding some degree of fame as an actress. Each has grown, but in varying degrees. "She's a much stronger woman in this one," Dunst said of her Mary Jane. "She's, like, independent. She's doing her own thing. And she's waking Peter up in this one because she's becoming a woman and he's still kind of a little boy."
