Webb won't direct Spider-Man 4

Director Marc Webb has revealed he will not be at the helm of the fourth Spider-Man film.

The filmmaker directed The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 and will take the reins on the next two sequels, but has said the third movie about the web-slinger will be his last.

Marc told The Daily Beast: "I'd like to be involved as a consultant, and I've already talked to these guys about it, but in terms of directing it, that will close out my tenure.

"I've had so much fun doing it, but after the third movie, it'll be the time to find something else."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due out in April and will see Andrew Garfield reprise his role as Peter Parker/superhero Spider-Man, with Emma Stone back as his love interest Gwen Stacy.

Jamie Foxx plays the sequel's main villain Electro, alongside Paul Giamatti as Rhino, as well as Chris Cooper and Dane DeHaan as Peter's rivals, father and son Norman and Harry Osborn.

The third instalment in the franchise is due out in 2016 and the fourth film is expected to be released in 2018.
