Marc Webb to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is confirmed for 2014, and Marc Webb will definitely be returning to direct...
News has broken this evening that director Marc Webb, who helmed this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man, is to return for the sequel.
This was no certainty. In fact, there had been growing speculation that he wouldn't be in charge of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, Columbia Pictures has announced that he will indeed be back. Furthermore, and less surprisingly, Andrew Garfield will be reprising the title role.
We weren't great fans of The Amazing Spider-Man, but, not for the first time, we seem to be in the minority on that. Furthermore, the movie has taken in over $750m at the worldwide box office, and Sony had long since confirmed that it planned for the second film to be in cinemas in the summer of 2014.
The exact release date is May 2nd 2014, as it happens, and once again it will be in 3D. Emma Stone is expected back too, and production will start next year. More on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as we get it.
