It looks like there's a big chance director The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb won't be back to direct the sequel. In a recent interview with THR, Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad had this to say when asked about Webb coming back...
We'd really like him back, but there are obstacles. He has an obligation to Fox. [Webb owes Fox a post-(500) Days of Summer film.]
So that sucks! I like what Webb did with Spider-Man, and it would be a shame if he wasn't able to return to finish the story that he started. If this is all of a sudden an obstacle it sounds like Webb and Fox are talking about doing something, but what could it be? Webb just made a great comic book adaptation, and Fox has a bunch of mutant Marvel properties as well, so it makes me wonder if they will bring him on to direct one of those. Deadpool could actually be directorless, as we haven't heard anything about the film since Tim Miller was named as the director. I figure if nothing has progressed after all this time, he must be off the project.
This is all just speculation, but for conversation sake, what would you think about Webb directing the Deadpool movie they've been trying to get off the ground? Who would you want to see replace him on the Spider-Man sequel?
