‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ has swung into theaters and is doing great so far. The film has already pulled in an impressive estimated $341.2 million in it’s six day run. Collider recently spoke with Marc Webb about the film and the sequels that are confirmed to be happening.
On him returning to direct a sequel:
“I haven’t made a decision,” he replied. “I’m just like…this has been such a long process, it’s so much fun, it’s really exciting and I’ve invested a lot. But I just want to finish this movie, take a breath and then I’ll make that call, we’ll see.”
Due to how well this film is doing in theaters I don’t think there is quite a good chance we could see Webb return to direct the sequel.
On where he drew inspiration from in the comics:
“In terms of finding things from the comics, obviously there’s some references to his parents and different versions of that, and I studied that a little bit. And then I liked some of the attitude in The Ultimates.” Further into the conversation, he stated “I like the attitude and the physical components of Spider-Man from some of the Ultimates. So it’s an amalgam of different characters that felt interesting to me.”
Also, when asked if there were any villains he would like to see in the future, he definitely didn’t give much away but it seems like he has a pretty good idea what is in store.
“Well, hmm, I don’t want to give anything away.”
