Back in the 1990s, Avatar director James Cameron was going to make a Spider-Man movie. But he was taking Spider-Man in a less family-friendly direction. Some of his ideas were still used in the Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man movies.
After Avatar, James Cameron can do no wrong. Marvel should give him another chance at Spider-Man. His futuristic style and groundbreaking visual effects could definitely give fans another level of superhero realism. Too bad superhero movies come with so many legal entanglements.
