Marc Webb set for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The suitably named Marc Webb will return to direct the next Spider-Man film after extended negotiations, Variety reports.

It was inevitable that we would see a sequel to the recent Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield. As well as making bucket-loads of money, the film itself often felt like an extended set up for future instalments. Despite the lukewarm response from many critics and fans, we all knew Sony wasn’t gonna let this property go.

With Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield confirmed the only remaining loose end is Emma Stone, apparently deep in negotiations at this very moment.

I personally was resoundingly indifferent to The Amazing Spider-Man and would’ve much preferred this sequel be helmed by a film-maker who could bring some life to this airless franchise. Webb’s re-signing doesn’t increase my anticipation for the second entry in this rebooted series.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits cinemas May 2014.
