ComingSoon.net reported that both the lead actor and director from this year’s The Amazing Spider-Man are returning to work on a sequel. In an announcement from Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad and president of production Hannah Minghella, it has been confirmed that Marc Webb will return to direct Garfield in the role of Peter Parker for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The only missing piece, it appears, is actress Emma Stone who reportedly is still “in talks” to reprise her role as Gwen Stacy in the upcoming sequel. This summer’s Amazing Spider-Man garnered over $751 million worldwide and was one of this year’s most successful blockbusters.
The new film is slated to begin production in early 2013 and has a tentative 3D release date of May 2, 2014.
