THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 Has Its Director!! + How Often Will We Get SPIDEYverse Movies??
Variety says director Marc Webb will return to the SPIDER-MAN universe for the franchise’s third installment, set to be released June 2016 release. This had been presumed all along, now it appears official.
In 2012, Webb helmed THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN to a $752+ million success - the second installment in the franchise, ingeniously titled THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN 2, arrives on screens late April overseas and early May here in the US.
The second film’s scripting team, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner, are already pegged to return for the third outing. If memory serves, Paul Giamatti - who plays Aleksei Sytsevich / The Rhino in ASM 2 has already let slip that he will return in the third picture as well.
Meanwhile, SPE co-chairman Amy Pascal is spinning Spider-Man’s web ever larger, taking a page from Marvel Entertainment’s superhero movie playbook. “We are expanding the ‘Spider-Man’ universe into ‘The Sinister Six’ and ‘Venom,’ so that we have ‘Spider-Man’ movies every year,” Pascal says.
In December, Sony announced Alex Kurtzman will direct “Venom” from a script he’s writing with his longtime collaborator Roberto Orci, as well as Ed Solomon. Drew Goddard will write “The Sinister Six” with an eye to direct. Neither film has been dated, and both are in development at the studio.
