It's Official! Director Marc Webb Helming Spider-Man Reboot

Director Marc Webb will be directing the surprise reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. Webb has previously directed numerous music videos for a variety of stars over the years. Also, his first feature film (500) Days of Summer was released in 2009 to positive reviews.

Webb will work closely with producers Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin on the project through Pre-production. Based on a script by James Vanderbilt, and production will start later this year. Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee said "I am excited that Sony has chosen a director with real penchant and understanding for the character. This is a brave, bold direction for the franchise, and I can't wait to see what marc comes up with next." So, if Stan Lee likes him, I guess I'll give him a chance.

Report show that they will make it on a budget of $80 million and cast relatively unknowns. Also, the series will not use the origin stories from the 60's; which, the Raimi directed films used, but rather use the Ultimate Spider-Man take to the film. This is just speculation are not proven.
