EDITORIAL: Reasons Marc Webb should return for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
I finally saw The Amazing Spider-Man yesterday (check out my review for it in my latest 2 in 1) and with Marc Webb having yet to make a decision, here is my reasons he should comeback for the Amazing sequel.
If there is one thing I feel Marc Webb has executed better than any other director for a comicbook film is the romance. He casted actors who had a real chemistry together and you believed that the characters are real. Imagine what he could do if they threw Mary Jane into the mix or Felicia Hardy.
The Amazing Spider-Man has a feel, that the best way I can describe it is that it feels natural and organic. It has a specific feel that if Marc Webb were to not comeback for TASM 2, it wouldn't really feel right and it would look weird if to watch it after TASM.
He gave the film a perfect pacing and I think the sequel could benefit from the pacing he gave the first film, if not improve on it.
Lets just say for argument sake that the mystery figure in TASM is Norman Osborne. Marc Webb could have Norman be the main bad guy without really being the "bad guy". He could pull the strings, it could help with The Untold Story and pacing, speaking of pacing, here is my idea for who the sequels baddie should be.
If they do decide to not stray from the first movie, they could continue the cross species one more time and introduce Puma. Tweak his origin and it could be good or (even though the trilogy would only have one different villain in the whole trilogy to seperate itself from the previous trilogy) they could do The Death of Gwen Stacy as the basis of the second film, finish the untold story and also introduce the symbiote and have Peter get rid of it at the end of the film, attach itself to Eddie Brock and have it lead to the third and final film to be Spider-Man vs. Venom. Marc Webb is a great story teller and I think if they keep him for the whole trilogy and possibly go with my ideas, you could have one of the best trilogies ever and potentionally topping the original trilogy.
