Fanboy Comics recently received information from a reliable inside source regarding the future of Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man films. Though it has not yet been confirmed, we have learned that Marc Webb, the un-ironically named director of The Amazing Spider-Man slated for release this summer, will not be returning to direct any more Spider-Man movies. It is still a rumor, so take this info with a grain of salt, but if true, it is very interesting, indeed.
We have no idea whether the departure is the decision of Webb himself or the studio. Fanboy Comics has contacted Sony for comment, and we will keep you updated on any new developments relating to this story.
The Amazing Spider-Man, directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, will be released on July 3rd by Sony Pictures.
