Revealing whether we'll see horns on the Rhino, director Marc Webb talks lengthily about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and its many villains, the third & fourth installments, and more. Check it out after the jump!



Ahead of tomorrow's big Comic-Con panel for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the guys at Movies.com had a lengthy chat with director Marc Webb today about the much-hyped sequel and beyond. "There's always been a plan to extend this universe," Webb said. "To make a series of films that were interrelated and weren't purely episodic. That there were certain ongoing stories that were going to play out over multiple films. So, that's always been in the works and there's been some early talks about the nature of what those next two movies are. It's too early to talk about too many of the details, but if you pay attention to this film that's coming out, you may get a feeling and sense of what's to come in the future." When asked if he would be directing the third and fourth installments, Marc Webb admitted, "The fourth one was a little bit of a surprise. We always talked about there being a set of three movies, but there may be elements that expand outside Spider-Man that could fulfill that fourth film"

On The Amazing Spider-Man 2 front, Marc Webb says, "Electro is a fantastically cinematic villain and there's something truly terrifying and godlike about his powers. And that's something that's been fun to develop and conceive of; not only visually, but conceptually how what happens when this creature, who's mythological in scope, is unleashed in New York City ... the visual spectacle of it is gonna be fantastic. We're doing some terrible things to Times Square, but it's gonna be fun to watch."

When reminded of the number of villains in the sequel compared to Sam Raimi's third installment, and questioned how he plans to avoid that same downfall, Marc Webb says, "One of the things about Spider-Man that's really fun is that the people who become villains often don't start out as villains." He adds, "Most of the relationships are based in love[?] in some ways. We're teasing out certain characters that may not be his main foes... but the main villain is going to be Electro." Whether fans will see horns on the Rhino, Webb replies with a simple "yes!" What do you think?





In “The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2,” for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers. The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
