Director Marc Webb talks ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3,’ and ‘Amazing Spider-Man 4’

Marc Webb has been asked about the future of the Spider-Man franchise now that the third and fourth films have been confirmed.

Webb concedes that the new iteration of the series was initially conceived as a trilogy, but suggests that a fourth film might be more expansive in scope, making it “not just a Spider-Man movie”.

Jamie Foxx close up Electro Amazing Spider-man“I think this was conceived of as a trilogy,” says Webb to Crave Online, “so there was a defined architecture to the story we were telling and we had sort of a rough outline of what was going to happen.”

“I think [for] the fourth movie, what we’ve discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie.”

Webb is alluding to the catalog of villains that is rivaled only by Batman.

“You know, what was fun about the comics is that there’s an entire sort of encyclopedia of characters and stories and histories and nuances and idiosyncrasies and off-shoots. I think that that is something that seems to be really successful and has a lot of potential.”

Total Film notes “Given the number of new characters being introduced in the next episode alone, it certainly seems as though Webb is keen to build a movie universe with a depth comparable to the source material.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in theaters May 3, 2014.
