As Sony tries to fight off a hack and constant negative reviews of their superhero franchise, it now looks like someone from the inside is taking shots at Spider-Man and how the studio is running the series.
In an interview with James Horner Film Music, James Horner talked about his experience as the composer on The Amazing Spider-Man and how he viewed Marc Webb as the director on the film.
"He was very inexperienced and he and I had a very good relationship and the producers had their own opinion," he said. "And they didn't want his input. And then Sony had their own, they just wanted action."
Horner added that he liked Webb, but felt that Sony had their hand in the pot a little too much and that after awhile, he just couldn't take it anymore, which is why he left the franchise. Hans Zimmer took over for the second movie.
"To me, the whole thing about doing the movie was I liked the director and there was a chance to write something for the two lead characters and then she dies in the next movie," he said. "But the next movie ended up being so terrible, I didn't want to do it. It was just dreadful."
With the third movie in flux and fully dependent on the next film in the proposed universe, Sinister Six, it seems like the Spider-Man franchise at Sony could be in real trouble. While these comments won't stop Sony, it does shed light on what some people believe is going on with the franchise.
