The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director, Marc Webb, who is also slated to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3, will apparently not be directing The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which Sony has already set a release date of May 4, 2018.
"I'd like to be involved as a consultant, and I've already talked to these guys about it, but in terms of directing it, that will close out my tenure. I've had so much fun doing it, but after the third movie, it'll be the time to find something else."
"We're building out a more complicated Spider-Man universe with characters that people haven't seen in other Spider-Man movies-The Sinister Six, Venom, and more. We'd all love to overlap with other studios, but it's beyond my pay grade."
