We reported in July that Marc Webb may not be able to direct this superhero sequel, since he is contractually obligated to make another movie for Fox Searchlight Pictures, under his deal for (500) Days of Summer. It seems they must have come to some sort of an arrangement, though, with production expected to start in early 2013. Emma Stone is in talks to return as Gwen Stacy.
Marc Webb will direct from a screenplay by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Jeff Pinkner, based on an earlier draft by The Amazing Spider-Man writer James Vanderbilt.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released May 2nd, 2014 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb.
