Predictable, but reassuring news: Marc Webb signs on to direct The Amazing Spider-Man sequel

In Stuff We Knew Would Probably Happen, the director of this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, has officially been confirmed to helm the sequel. And it's a good thing, too, because it already had a release date of May 2, 2014! That would have been really awkward without a director. Mr. Parker/Spidey, Andrew Garfield, has also signed on to return, but Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) is still in talks. Probably trying to find out if/when that thing that happens to her character in the comics will be happening in this movie or, perhaps, another one. (via /Film)
