Marc Webb jumped up the Hollywood food chain with The Amazing Spider-man, and while he agreed to sign on for a second Spidey movie, it wasn’t known if he would be interested in making more. However now Variety reports that Webb has been confirmed to The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which is already set for release on June 10, 2016.
Amazing Spider-Man 2 writers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Jeff Pinkner are returning to write the script for the third adventure, with Matthew Tolmach and Avi Arad producing.
Andrew Garfield is already contracted to be back as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and last October is was reported that Paul Giamatti will return as Aleksei Sytsevich aka. The Rhino. Chris Cooper, who plays Norman Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has also hinted that he will be in part three. However no other cast members have been confirmed.
With Spider-man becoming a lynchpin for Sony Pictures (to the point where some investors feel they’re relying on it too much and ought to find some other major franchise) they are also expanding the Spider-Man universe, with The Sinister Six and Venom spin-offs. It’s believed they hope to release a Spidey related movie every year.
