Studio to make new Spider-man movie 'every year'

Marc Webb has been confirmed to direct 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3'.

The filmmaker will return to helm Andrew Garfield in the third instalment of the superhero franchise, "securing his spot in helming all three films in the trilogy" according to a new report about Sony Pictures by Variety.

The movie is due for release in May 2016 in the UK and June 2016 in the US.

The studio also confirmed that a new 'Spider-Man' film would be released every year in future, thanks to plans to make spin-off movies centred around villains The Sinister Six and Venom.

Amy Pascal, Sony's co-chairman, said: "We are expanding the 'Spider-Man' universe into The Sinister Six and Venom, so that we have 'Spider-Man' movies every year."

Alex Kurtzman is set to direct 'Venom' and is currently writing a script with his longtime collaborator Roberto Orci and Ed Solomon, while Drew Goddard will write 'The Sinister Six' and potentially direct the feature. Neither film has yet been given a release date.

Orci recently said: "I think [the audience is] ready to have things shaken up. I think we've all seen everything. You've seen everything ...They can see it all coming. So we have to shake it up. You can't just keep telling the same stories every day."
