Marc Web Already Planning Spider-Man 4

The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb has admitted that he think the rebooted marvel Studios franchise has the potential to go beyond the currently planned trilogy and that a forth film in the new series could already be on the cards.

With the second film starring Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx as new villain Electro already on the way, Director Webb has openly shared his hopes that the forth film could  potentially expand beyond just being a Spider-Man film, to focus instead on the wider universe of Marvel characters.

“I think this was conceived of as a trilogy,” says Webb, “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.

You know, what was fun about the comics is that there’s an entire sort of encyclopaedia 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.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be web slinging its way into UK cinemas on 18 April 2014.
