‘Spider-Man’ Reboot Gets Director


Sony and Marvel have just sent out a press release confirming the choice of Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer) as the director for the rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Producers Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin had this to say:

“Over the years, the Spider-Man comics have been told with bold and creative new writers and artists who have re-calibrated the way audiences see Peter Parker. Marc Webb will do for the new direction of the films what so many visionary storytellers have done with the comic books
. He is an incredibly talented filmmaker and we look forward to working closely with him on this new adventure.”

Webb called the opportunity “a dream come true” and said Raimi’s version was a “humbling precedent to follow and build upon.” Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascak said they “wanted someone who could capture the awe of being in Peter’s shoes so the audience could experience his sense of discovery while giving real heart to the emotion, anxiety, and recklessness of that age and coupling all of that with the adrenaline of Spider-Man’s adventure.”
