Marc Webb Wanted Venom In The Amazing Spider-Man 3

For the first time since being ousted from Spider-Man, director Marc Webb discusses the newest Spider-Man director Jon Watts and what he would've done with The Amazing Spider-Man 3 if Sony hadn't rebooted Spidey.

Webb expressed his excitement for seeing Spidey joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe and giving his endorsement to the director that will helm Marvel's new take on Spidey. "Jon Watts who is directing it, I knew him from the old music video days," Webb told MTV. "He had done some really fantastic music videos. It's super-exciting and you know, it's sad a little bit to surrender that in a way but it as it must be, I guess."

MTV then asks him which characters he wanted to get to in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is it had happened. "There's the man in the hat, this obscure character called The Gentleman, who gets the Sinister Six together. That would've been fun to play out," Webb said. "Venom, obviously I would've been curious to see."

Listen to Webb's comments in the video below.


Tom Holland's Spider-Man/Peter Parker will make a cameo in Captain America: Civil War, which will arrive on May 6, 2016. He'll then star in the Jon Watts-directed solo Spider-Man movie to be released on July 28, 2017.
