Fan of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy may not have been excited about Sony rebooting the franchise so soon, but The Amazing Spider-Man has been a huge success taking in over $650 million worldwide so far. A big reason for that success is director Marc Webb, so bringing him back for the sequel should be a no-brainer, right? Not so fast.
We previously reported that one issue with Webb returning for part two which will hit theaters on May 2nd, 2014 is the fact that he still owes 20th Century Fox a movie as part of his deal from 2009's hit 500 Days of Summer. The studio already has waited 3 years in order for the director to work on The Amazing Spider-Man and according to the L.A. Times, they don't want to wait two more years for Webb to direct another hit film for a rival studio.
Sony, the studio behind the Spider-Man franchise is happy with Webb's work on the reboot and is hoping for him to return for the sequel. Webb is equally interested in returning, but may not have a choice in the matter if Fox doesn't agree to release him in order to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One solution that Fox is considering is to add an additional movie to Webb's deal, which he will need to direct following the release of Spider-Man 2. Sounds like a perfect solution, but would tie the much in demand director for at least a couple years and could ultimately delay the planned third Spider-Man film or force the studio to hand the reigns over to another director.
Regardless of what decision is ultimately made, it needs to be made soon with the release date for the sequel less than two years away. That may seem like plenty of time, but keep in mind filming on The Amazing Spider-Man began in December 2010 for a June 2012 release and there is currently no completed script for the sequel, though Transformers and Star Trek scribes Alex Kurzman and Roberto Orci are currently working on it with the original film's writer James Vanderbilt.
So Spidey fans, do you think Webb should return for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 even if it means we may need to wait longer for a third film or should Sony just turn over the project to another director?
