Ahead of the Comic-Con panel for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ Movies.com sat down with director Marc Webb to talk all things Spider-Man. Speaking about the recent decision to extend this Spider-Man franchise to four movies, Webb said, “The fourth one was a little bit of a surprise,” Webb admitted when asked if he’d be directing all of them. “We always talked about there being a set of three movies, but there may be elements that expand outside Spider-Man that could fulfill that fourth film,” Webb teased, perhaps alluding to some kind of Avengers-like team-up film. Either way it sounds like that fourth movie isn’t going to be a regular old Spider-Man movie, but something much bigger.
“There’s always been a plan to extend this universe,” Webb continued. “To make a series of films that were interrelated and weren’t purely episodic. That there were certain ongoing stories that were going to play out over more films. There have been some early talks about the nature of those next two films, but it’s still too early to talk details. If you pay attention to this film that’s coming out in May of next year, you may get a feeling and a sense of what’s to come in the future.” Expect a whole lot more ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ related news later today from Comic-Con.

The Wrap are reporting that Charlie Hunnam is attached to star in John Hillcoat’s (The Proposition, The Road) ‘Triple Nine,’ while Oscar winners Christoph Waltz and Cate Blanchett are both in talks to join the cast of the Megan Ellison-financed crime thriller. The title “Triple Nine” refers to police code indicating that an officer needs immediate assistance. The story follows a group of thieves who plan to kill a young LAPD cop to divert the police away from a daring heist they’re perpetrating across town.
Charlie Hunnam will play the targeted officer, while Christoph Waltz is in talks to play Hunnam’s uncle, a fellow cop investigating the criminals. Cate Blanchett would play the “juicy role” of a notorious mobster’s Lady Macbeth-esque wife who’s really pulling the strings behind the heist. The long-gestating project, which John Hillcoat’s ‘Lawless’ star Shia LaBeouf was once attached to, could start production before the end of the year. Hunnam is best known for his role on FX’s biker drama ‘Sons of Anarchy’ but he also starred in this month’s robots-vs-monsters epic ‘Pacific Rim.’ He next will reteam with ‘Pacific Rim’ director Guillermo del Toro on ‘Crimson Peak.’
