In Not-Really-Internet-Breaking-News Sony has confirmed that Marc Webb will be returning to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Everyone pretty much expected this, Webb has been the driving creative force behind the Spider-Man reboot. Webb was talking trilogy before the first had even started shooting.
What’s really interesting is tying it all together. Webb back in the director chair, Andrew Garfield locked in for a third film, even Paul Giamatti has committed to a second run as the Rhino in the third Spider-Man film.
In December, Sony announced Alex Kurtzman will direct “Venom” from a script he’s writing with his longtime collaborator Roberto Orci, as well as Ed Solomon. Drew Goddard will write “The Sinister Six” with an eye to direct. Neither film has been dated, and both are in development at the studio. Marc Webb will direct “The Amazing Spider-Man 3,” securing his spot in helming all three films in the trilogy. The third pic is dated for release in June 2016.
