Marc Webb Confirmed for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3; Expect A New SPIDER-MAN Movie Every Year
Marvel started a new trend with its films and it hasn’t taken long for other studios to take note and make changes to how they create films. Starting with Iron Man, the studio set up a cohesive and intermingled film universe that allows the character so not only jump between films, but creates a timeline in which they all coexist. As we know, the idea was hugely successful and it hasn’t gone un-noticed. WB quickly changed their plans and have shifted their plans to include numerous DC Comics characters in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, with solo films and a Justice League film likely to follow. Fox has teased that they plan to do the same with the two Marvel properties they own, X-Men and Fantastic Four. While they haven’t confirmed that, there have been several rumors that say as much, and frankly, they’d be dumb not to. Then, last Fall, Sony announced they’d be climbing on board the cinematic universe train and announced that a Venom and Sinister Six films were in the works and that they’d tie into their main live-action franchise, Spider-Man.
This May, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will swing into theaters, likely setting up that planned Sinister Six film and launching an entirely new universe. Today, Sony head Amy Pascal announced that we can expect to see a new Spider-Man centered film every year, much like Marvel is currently doing.
“We are expanding the ‘Spider-Man’ universe into ‘The Sinister Six’ and ‘Venom,’ so that we have ‘Spider-Man’ movies every year,” Pascal said.
We know that the studio has their plans laid out all the way through 2018 for the franchise, so this only adds fuel to that fire.The next film that is currently on the schedule is The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but we could see a film earlier if they get scripts done for Venom or the Sinister Six, but that would be cutting it close.
The other bit of news that surfaced was that Marc Webb, who has directed the first two Spidey films, will be returning to helm the third film. This news has been confirmed
