Amazing Spider-Man Sequel
October 6, 2012 by staff
Amazing Spider-Man Sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb has been confirmed to return alongside star Andrew Garfield for the forthcoming sequel. Studio Sony Columbia said on Friday that Webb, 38, would take charge of a shoot in early 2013 for the follow-up to this year’s third highest-grossing comic-book flick. While it has been somewhat overshadowed by the $1.5bn (£929m) take of Marvel Studios’ The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises’ $1.075bn (£665m) haul, The Amazing Spider-Man still managed a respectable $751m (£465m) worldwide.
Webb, a young American director who only made his debut in 2009 with the well-received indie romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer, has been tipped to return for months but no deal had been confirmed. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he had wanted a significant pay rise from the $1m he was paid for the first film.
“We could not be more confident in the direction we are taking this new Spider-Man storyline, and we are tremendously excited to be ramping up production again with Marc at the helm and Andrew continuing on as Peter Parker,” Columbia president Doug Belgrad said. “We can’t wait to share what we have in store for Peter and Spider-Man with audiences worldwide.”
Garfield, the 29-year-old Briton who played Spider-Man and his alter ego Peter Parker, is thought to have been tied to a contract to star in multiple films when he made his original deal. Emma Stone, who played Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy, is now in talks to reprise the role.
Many had expected The Amazing Spider-Man to struggle after Sony made the decision to reboot the series only a decade after the original version, starring Tobey Maguire, first hit cinemas, yet the film performed well with the critics. The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw praised it as a “more feminised and emotionally literate Spider-Man”, saying “it is amazing how potent and entertaining the Spider-Man myth continues to be”.
