Article from April 11, 2017: Heckled by critics, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 signed the end of the franchise reboot, despite honorable box office results ($ 708 million worldwide). Since then, the director Marc Webb had never really expressed himself on the subject. Collider took advantage of the release of Gifted (with Chris evans) to ask him a few questions. “I don’t really have any regrets. There are so many things that I am proud of. There is ambition in the second film, especially“, he explains.”I’m very happy with the idea that a superhero can’t save everyone. This is an important message and I believe in it. These are very, very difficult films to make. They are so complex, people don’t fully realize it. They weren’t disasters (…) I felt really lucky to have this opportunity (…) I loved everyone involved, really. I didn’t have a strained relationship with the studio, at all. There were a lot of very smart people. They are simply complicated films to make. I am very proud of them and I take them on board. I am not a victim“, he swears.

And when Collider Asked him about the progress of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 before Sony decides to stop the franchise, Marc Webb explains that no story had yet really been developed. “We had finished the second and they were working on Sinister Six, so we took a break. And then the Sony hack came along and it all stopped. But that’s the way Hollywood works, sometimes“.
