Without even the second film in theaters yet, let alone the third, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb, has stated that there is no fourth film for him. In a recent interview with the Daily Beast at the SXWX film festival, Webb stated that he would like to be involved as a consultant.
"I've already talked to these guys about it, but in terms of directing it, [the third film] will close out my tenure. I've had so much fun doing it, but after the third movie, it'll be the time to find something else."
This adds an interesting twist to the development and franchise that Sony has rebooted with Spider-Man. Peter Parker himself, Andrew Garfield, has come out and said that he has one more Spider-Man in him after the second one comes out. So what will that mean to the franchise? Not to mention all the spin offs that are in the works?
Will this mean a reboot or a recasting of the lead? When it comes to Superhero films, three seems to be the magic number. Though Marvel is breaking that trend with multiple appearances in different films. We don’t even have a third Amazing Spider-Man yet, or a third Captain America, or a second Avengers. We do have Batman Forever and Superman III so we know how low are superhero franchise can go.
