Marc Webb May Not Direct The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel
Sony wants Marc Webb to direct the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, and Webb wants to come back to continue the story he started to tell in the first movie. Yet last we heard, the studio feared that Webb may not be able to return due to “obstacles”. The problem is Fox Searchlight, who has a claim on Webb—the director still owes the studio that made (500) Days of Summer at least one more film. Fox gave Webb some time to direct The Amazing Spider-Man, but is understandably unwilling to give him another couple years to make the sequel. Unfortunately for Webb, Sony needs to find a new director soon to make the announced May 2, 2014 release date for the Amazing Spider-Man sequel. So if Webb can’t make The Amazing Spider-Man 2 next, he can’t make it at all. Hit the jump for a possible solution.

I don't see why Marc Webb WOULDN'T take the much money would be involved, and then he'll be assured to more gigs at Fox Searchlight!
