Ever since his critically acclaimed feature debut, 500 Days of Summer, director Marc Webb has been tangled up in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Other than directing the occasional music video, Webb hasn’t had much time for anything else. The director had to step away from other projects to helm the soon to be released sequel to his 2012 Spidey reboot and is already attached to direct the third installment.
In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Webb said that after he’s finished directing The Amazing Spider-Man 3, he plans to move on to other projects.
“I’d like to be involved as a consultant, and I’ve already talked to these guys about it, but in terms of directing it, that will close out my tenure. I’ve had so much fun doing it, but after the third movie, it’ll be the time to find something else.”
Webb also commented on the expanding Spider-Man universe and possible crossovers with other studios, saying:
"We’re building out a more complicated Spider-Man universe with characters that people haven’t seen in other Spider-Man movies—The Sinister Six, Venom, and more. We’d all love to overlap with other studios, but it’s beyond my pay grade."
I doubt we’ll see Peter Parker suit up with The Avengers on the big-screen anytime soon, but I’m excited to see that there is definite movement on those Spidey spin-offs.
