Just Keep Swinging: Marc Webb to Direct 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3'

Marc Webb

Briefly: When Sony Pictures dated two more sequels for The Amazing Spider-Man franchise to hit theaters in 2016 and 2018, we weren't sure if director Marc Webb would return beyond this summer's forthcoming second film in the reboot franchise. Now we have an answer for at least one of the films as an analysis piece from Variety reveals that Webb is indeed on board to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3, dated for release on June 10th, 2016. We already know Andrew Garfield will be back as Peter Parker, but the actor revealed last year that he's not yet contracted for the fourth film. Stay tuned for any updates.

This is good news in my personal opinion.

Marc Webb is such a shitty director. TASM films suck and people don't care as Sony milks more money outta their pockets just to make a quick buck off a franchise they don't know how to properly take care of. INSTANT REBOOT 5 years later! Just goes to show folks. The Spider-Man film rights need to be back at Marvel before Sony does anymore damage, but nope not gonna happen anytime soon. Andrew Garfield is the equivalent of what we don't want to see in a Spider-Man film.

I dont know why people are griping so much about this franchise. IMO Marc Webb is hitting all the highpoints that pay homage and do justice to the comic book. There were so many things wrong with Tobey MacGuire franchise (taking nothing away from Tobey). We havent even seen part two yet but already the guy is "shitty director"? Jesus man sit out the next couple plays before your head explodes. Just a little reality check, Marvel doesnt always get it right.........probably only half of the movies under their umbrella.

So I guess turning Peter Parker into a constantly whining emo kid is great. Raimi paid a greater homage to the comics. Webb is just taking a crap all over it and making it into a Twilight hybrid. Just a little reality check for you, BOYO!

Did you just say that Webb made Parker "emo"? Do you remember this?

Yeah the new skate rat emo boy is 1000 times worse than what is shown above! Hell what is shown above to me is pointing out everything that is wrong with emo's. But then again I don't take everything at face value!

I prefer Raimi's 2 and 3 to ASM 1, but I think I liked ASM1 more than Raimi's 1. This one does look a lot better, other than some of the poor-looking vfx.

The title will be "Sony has squeezed all the life remaining from Spider-Man"
