Quickie: Marc Webb officially signs on to direct The Amazing Spider-Man sequel
The title of the post pretty much sums it up. Sony Pictures was very pleased with the financial success of The Amazing Spider-Man. Today it has been confirmed that director Marc Webb will return for the sequel. This is really just confirmation on what has been rumored for some time. Webb made no secret that he wanted to return. And while I enjoyed the reboot very much, I have to acknowledge not everyone agrees with me.
Peter Parker's origin story WAS basically retold with nothing new added to the reboot. But I enjoyed Webb's, much more grounded, take on the character; and preferred Garfield's acting to that of Tobey Maguire (star of the first trilogy). Let's see what happens!
