Oz The Great and Powerful director Sam Raimi has admitted that he has avoided watching Mark Webb’s reboot of the franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man.

Speaking to The Huffinton Post, he said: "Well, I'm a big Marc Webb fan and a giant fan of Emma Stone. And of Andrew Garfield. I saw him on Broadway in Death of a Salesman - it's just brilliant.

"I love the producers of that movie because they are dear friends, and the writer.

“But I haven't had the guts to go see the movie yet, because I don't want to go to my girlfriend's wedding. I just can't bring myself to do it - I don't have the guts."

Webb is currently working on the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man for release in April 2014.
