Director Marc Webb is going to be busy with "Spider-Man" for an eternity. Well, at least until 2018. With the success of his first film "The Amazing Spider-Man", and his sequel currently in production, Sony announced last month that "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" will be released in 2016 and "The Amazing Spider-Man 4 " will debut in 2018. So what goodies does Webb have in store of us? The introduction of some new heroes as well as some new badass, villains.
Last week at Comic Con, Webb teased the prospect of introducing the super-villain group Sinister Six in his third film. In an interview, Webb said, "What about The Gentleman? Think about the Gentleman. I'm just saying. Put that in your...There's your little tidbit. Think about The Gentleman. I'm just saying, think about The Gentleman."
With more villains, it would only make sense to introduce some more heroes to help Spidey on his pursuit. "Well, I think this was conceived of as a trilogy 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," said Webb. "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."
With WB's big reveal of Batman appearing in "Man of Steel 2" alongside Supes and Kevin Feige and Joss Whedon announcing their "Avengers" sequel will introduce Ultron, Sony is definitely doing their best to keep up.
