Marc Webb comments for the first time on Marvel rebooting Spider-Man without him

Had things worked out a little better for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Marc Webb would have more than likely directed The Amazing Spider-Man 3 (which was set to be released in 2017).

However, both he and Andrew Garfield were unceremoniously dropped from the franchise when Sony decided to team up with Marvel Studios for a reboot, and the (500) Days of Summer director never got the chance to conclude his story.

What that would have involved isn’t clear, but Webb does reveal in the video above that he would have liked to continue developing The Man in the Hat, the Sinister Six, and possibly Venom.

The filmmaker also comments on Marvel’s plans for Spider-Man and seems enthusiastic about the wall-crawler joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the decision to cast Tom Holland as a younger Peter Parker.

It’s a shame that Webb never got the chance to finish his trilogy, but it’s probably for the best based on the direction The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was heading! He’s not doing too bad anyway, as he’s at Comic-Con to promote Limitless, the upcoming TV series which he directed the pilot of and will executive produce.
