Marc Webb Expected To Return For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3; No Reboot Planned

Despite many fans speculating that a four year delay until the next instalment in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, a new report claims that while Sony are hoping to "freshen" the brand, they don't intend to reboot and Marc Webb is still expected to return and complete the trilogy...


The Hollywood Reporter have a very interesting piece up about Sony's decision to release Sinister Six in 2016 and to push The Amazing Spider-Man 3 back to an undisclosed date in 2018. Since this news broke, many fans have wondered whether a reboot could be on the way (after all, Andrew Garfield will be nearly 35 by the time the third movie comes out and getting a little old to play a high school graduate), while some even believe that the rights could return to Marvel Studios at any minute. Well, that's all speculation for now, but the site do drop one very intriguing detail. "Privately, Sony admits it is seeking to freshen the brand but has no major overhaul plans, with Webb expected to return to complete the trilogy (as Raimi did with the first three films)." Will he want to return after the tepid response to the latest movie? What exactly do they mean by freshening the brand? The site goes on to mention that while Jamie Foxx is expected to reprise the role of Electro in Sinister Six, he won't be back for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, leaving us all to wonder what the point of that movie is if Spidey won't be in it. Anyway, for now, Sony are clearly intent on forging ahead with their plans for the iconic Marvel character...
