EXCLUSIVE: Sam Raimi Talks 'Spider-Man 5' And 'Spider-Man 6'—But Will He Direct?

Spider-ManSam Raimi already gave us his thoughts on "Spider-Man 4" villains and when he expects to start shooting the next "Spider-Man" movie in the blockbuster franchise, but once we had him talking about the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, we had to ask: Will he be back for "Spider-Man 5" and "Spider-Man 6"?

"Every time I make one of the 'Spider-Man' movies, I have to ask myself, is the character still intriguing to me?" Raimi told MTV News. "Do I love the character? Am I dying to tell the next story of Peter Parker and Spider-Man?"

"And so far the answer has been yes," he said.

But that's not all he had to say about future installments of the blockbuster franchise, which recently tagged original "Spider-Man 4" writer James Vanderbilt to script the next two films.

"If ever I feel sated, like I've got no more to say or I'm not really super-excited about it," Raimi continued, "because I know I'll also love it, but I've got to be super-excited about it. If I can't reach that level of commitment and excitement, I think then there'd be somebody else better to do justice to the story."

"You have to ask me in two-and-half years," he laughed.

So, while that doesn't mean he'll be back for the fourth chapter in Spider-Man's big-screen adventures, it certainly bodes well for the immediate future. Apparently, Raimi still has a tale to tell.
