Marc Webb has announced that while he will return for Amazing Spider-Man 3, it will be his last film in the franchise. Amazing Spider-Man 4, a Sinister Six film and a Venom film are all planned for the Sony Spidey-verse. Webb, whose name really does require that he does nothing but these films forever, says he’s ready to move on to other things.
This isn’t the end of the world. Webb has gotten this new franchise off to an epic start and Sony has two years to find the right person to take over. This is actually another sign that Sony has a long-term plan and people bought into it. Webb certainly could’ve bailed for AMS 3, but he gave the equivalence of 2 years notice. This is the kind of advance planning that’s allowed the MCU to succeed. New batch of photos including the best look yet at Dane DeHaan as full Goblin. It’s better than Willem DaFoe’s football helmet is all I’ll say. AMS 2 opens nationwide May 1st.
