I wrote a script a few years ago, and the project had started. But there was a time limit and I didn’t want to spoil this fourth installment, I wanted the audience to like it. I didn’t want it to be inconsistent with the third, and I wanted it to be the best in the franchise. But I was not able to write such a good script with such a time limit. I preferred to tell Sony to continue with their project of a different Spider-Man, because I did not want to drop the public on that one. »
