"I saw a trailer for the first Spider-Man reboot and I thought, 'This is crazy! It's not shot for shot, but it's the same story'. I thought, 'This is sort of a cynical approach to making money!'" Actor Willem Dafoe is not a fan of the rebooted Spider-Man films. He starred as the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's 2002 version of the hero's origin story, alongside Tobey Maguire and James Franco.
