Marc Webb would love to make a Spider-Man sequel, but first he'll have to get by Fox, who wants a two picture deal in exchange.
Marc Webb may have thought he'd escaped chick flick hell when he directed the successful Amazing Spider-Man this summer, but 20th Century Fox isn't going to give up that easily. In a plot worthy of Norman Osborne, Fox is reportedly refusing to let the director return to the Spider-Man franchise unless he agrees to produce another two movies for him afterward.
Webb owed Fox another movie following 500 Days of Summer, but the pimp-like studio allowed him to direct Spider-Man anyway, giving him a taste of comic book movie freedom, just to snatch it back until he agrees to their demands.
With Webb being hot right now, he may not want to agree with the deal, which means Sony may need to find a new director for 2014's Amazing Spidey 2. Maybe it's time for another reboot?
