The Amazing Spider Man 2 : Marc Webb

Sony was banking on The Amazing Spider-Man to prove popular enough to kick-off a new trilogy, but for months now there’s been uncertainty about whether or not director Marc Webb will be along for the ride. The filmmaker committed to making a second feature for Fox Searchlight – which backed his directorial debut on (500) Days of Summer – prior to his part in relaunching the Spider-Man live-action movie franchise.

Fox has been anxious for Webb to fulfill said agreement, but reports emerged a couple months ago that the studio might allow Webb to instead move ahead next with Amazing Spider-Man 2, so long as he extends his agreement to two films. It would appear that such an agreement (or something like it) has been struck, as Webb is now confirmed for the web-slinging sequel.

The Amazing Spider Man 2 Plot

Sony announced today that Marc Webb will reprise his directing duties for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Webb's involvement had been in question due to some outstanding commitments he had with 20th Century Fox, but those appear to have been hashed out for the sake of retaining him for the sequel.
Star Andrew Garfield was also confirmed as returning to play Spidey, while the studio says Emma Stone is in talks to reprise her role as Gwen Stacy.

The screenplay is by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt. The film will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.
“We could not be more confident in the direction we are taking this new Spider-Man storyline and we are tremendously excited to be ramping up production again with Marc at the helm and Andrew continuing on as  Peter Parker. We can’t wait to share what we have in store for Peter and Spider-Man with audiences worldwide," said Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of production for the studio, in a statement.
