Marc Webb confirmed to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3
The director of the first two The Amazing Spider-Man film will return for The Amazing Spider-Man 3...
Not a huge surprise this, but it's finally been officially confirmed nonetheless: Marc Webb will be returning to direct the next chapter in the Spider-Man cinematic franchise.
Webb already has The Amazing Spider-Man and the incoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to his name, and he's hinted before that there was a trilogy of films in mind. That in turn suggests that his involvement in The Amazing Spider-Man 4 is no sure thing, but we're getting ahead of ourselves there.
Webb got the Spider-Man job off the back of the back of the excellent (500) Days Of Summer, and once he's done with his Spidey duties, we hope that Sony - or another studio - finds him the money to pursue whatever other projects are in his head.
The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is set to arrive in cinemas on June 10th 2016, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner working on the script.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in the UK in April.
