Marc Webb, who directed The first two Amazing Spider-Man films and will return to the helm The Amazing Spider-Man 3, says he will not direct the fourth installment which is set for a May 4th, 2018 release.

Talking to The Daily Beast, Webb said that trilogy will be it for him:

“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.”

The third and fourth Spider-Man movies are not the only projects in the Spidey Universe, as Sony has previously announced both Venom and Sinister Six spin-offs films:

“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,”

When asked about the role that Felicity Jones play which is still not confirmed:

“She plays somebody who works in OsCorp… and that’s all I’m going to say about that!”

We’ve all seen the images, but they ask about Harry going Green Goblin:

“Yeah. There will be some “creature of the night” popping up.”
