Commitment to Fox May Keep Marc Webb Out Of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Sequel

Columbia Pictures Chief Doug Belgrad sat down to talk about a number of things related to the studio including on if he thought Marc Webb will be returning for The Amazing Spider-Man sequel where he said that all depends on when Fox Studios plan to use him.


The Amazing Spider-Man is still chugging along at the box office with the last numbers that we got going over the 500 million dollar range. With numbers like that and the films cliff hanger after credits scene a sequel is all but a given. Whether or not director Marc Webb will be apart of the sequel not so much a given. Columbia Pictures Chief Doug Belgrad sat down to talk with The Hollywood Reporter where he said Fox Studio holds the power to let Webb do the film or not. We'd really like him back, but there are obstacles. He has an obligation to Fox," he said. The obligation that Belgrad is referring to is Webb owes them another film for doing 500 Days of Summer. This is all still up in the air at the moment and it is NOT a for sure answer that he isn't going to return. What this does mean though is that there is a chance that Spidey will have a new director when he hits theaters again in 2014.

The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Fields, Denis Leary, and is in theater NOW!!!!!!
