Marc Webb - Spider-Man Comic-Con

Spidey and his villains. Electro. Rhino. The Sinister Six? Maybe. What about a Spidey-Avengers crossover, or Fantastic Four? I had so many fun questions to ask Marc Webb, and what better place than Comic-Con to have a good chat about our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and his foes. I caught up with director Marc Webb, who I have a long history with (interview in 2009, at WonderCon, in 2012), at the 2013 Comic-Con this year where he was presenting the first footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This was also the big unveiling of Jamie Foxx's villain Electro. It was great to catch up with Marc and talk about the sequel.

This was conducted in a rather loud interview space at Comic-Con, apologies for all the background noise. Marc refers to screenwriters Alex Kurtzman & Bob Orci, plus Jeff Pinkner by their first names in this.

Here's my Comic-Con 2013 video interview with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb:

Thank you to Sony/Columbia Pictures for arranging the interview, and to Marc Webb (@MarcW) for his time during the busy Con. Webb recently wrapped up shooting for 100 days in/around New York City and is currently in post-production on the comic book movie sequel. Andrew Garfield returns to play Peter Parker / Spider-Man, joined by Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon / Electro, Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich / The Rhino, Sally Field as Aunt May and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. After the interview, I returned to Hall H where we saw footage of Electro destroying Times Square and more. We'll keep an eye out for any trailers released. We hope you enjoyed this latest Marc Webb interview.

    He seems pretty humble for what he's charged with doing: taking a franchise that just came off a successful run and trying to make it successful again...immediately. Good for him.

    The Spidey films are shit and have been so for a long time. Sony sucks at Spidey. I wish they would send Spidey home to Marvel so we can get a REAL Spiderman film.

    I want your job dude!
