Before Marvel and Sony reached their highly-anticipated agreement to combine forces for a Spider-Man reboot, there was a lot of confusion about where the web-slinger was headed. We saw some of that in the e-mails following the Sony hack, accompanied by rumors about potential character returns and various spinoff plans. Now that director Marc Webb and the cast have moved on, they’ve begun to clarify what a third Amazing Spider-Man film would have been like.

It can be difficult to wrap your mind around Limitless, a movie that semi-rebooted itself to TV, keeping the same general continuity while still having nothing “Comic-Con” about it, but a dose of NZT will make everything clear. Find out what CBS’ forthcoming Limitless TV series revealed from Comic-Con, and what we’ll see from the series this fall!

CBS’ announcement and pickup of its Limitless TV series came with the unsurprising attachment that original film star Bradley Cooper would pitch in as executive producer. Now however, we’ve learned not only that Cooper will appear in the pilot, but also that the Guardians of the Galaxy star will even recur from time to time, picking up his role from the film.

Whether or not you thought Bradley Cooper’s 2011 ‘Limitless’ needed a TV reboot of the 100% brain-power hero solving cases for the FBI, CBS certainly seems committed to making it work. Director Neil Burger has exited the remake project for scheduling purposes, surprisingly leaving ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ helmer Marc Webb in his place.

Did Marc Webb Just Confirm the 'Sinister Six' Lineup?

The 'Sinister Six' movie was recently bumped up in the timeline so that it will be the next 'Spider-Man' universe movie, coming before 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' and not after, as was originally planned. Director Marc Webb thought while he was making 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' that he'd have another film to build the Sinister Six, but he won't have that luxury. That said, he did talk quite a bit on the 'ASM2' audio commentary about the future of the franchise, including some words about which Spider-Man villains would be appearing as the Sinister Six.

While a Shazam-powered 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' post-credits scene seems to hint at a Sinister Six lineup, reports thereafter confirmed that the official movie lineup has actually yet to be decided upon by 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' director Marc Webb and 'Sinister Six' director Drew Goddard. As they work out their scripts for the upcoming Spidey films, it couldn't hurt to speculate, and who better to speculate than Marc Webb himself.

Director Marc Webb Talks About the Shocking Ending to 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' [SPOILERS]

First thing, if you haven't yet seen 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' you should not be reading this article as it contains major spoilers for the ending of the film.
Okay, now that that business is out of the way ... director Marc Webb has been hinting for some time that the events in his film could eventually emulate what occurred in the pages of 'The Amazing Spider-Man' #121, which (last chance) depicts the death of Peter Parker's love interest, Gwen Stacy -- who is played by Emma Stone in the two most recent Spider-Man films.
Now that you've seen 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' we asked director Marc Webb about everything that went into the final shot of Gwen falling off the clock tower, including when it was decided to kill off Gwen (early); if there were any second thoughts; why the original scene had to be re-shot; and why 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' ended on an upbeat note, as opposed to leaving us with a dark ending.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Review

Most of what I know about complex science comes from comic books, so forgive me if my understanding of quantum mechanics is a little off. But, I think it can mean that particles can exist in two states simultaneously. 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' a film loaded with such half-understood notions of difficult scientific concepts, is a quantum movie. It manages to be both awful and entertaining, frequently at the same exact time. The script is ludicrous, even by summer blockbuster standards. The characters behave irrationally and without motivation and the story makes lengthy, frequent pit stops into dull backstory. But, for every moment of tedium and confusion there is a tiny explosion of joy. Director Marc Webb just barely ties this collision of half-baked ideas together in a sticky Spidey bow.

I met Webb at his SoHo hotel room -- or, if not his room, the room Sony had him sitting in at that particular moment -- to talk about the future of Spider-Man, what exactly Shailene Woodley's role would have been in the final movie had she not been cut, and Webb offers some, let's say, coy hints at the possible return of J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.
