Everyone can rest easy now - according to The Hollywood Reporter, after months of speculation, it's finally been confirmed that Marc Webb will be back to direct the sequel to this year's wildly successful The Amazing Spider-Man when it begins shooting in 2013. Additionally, star Andrew Garfield will officially be back to reprise his role as Peter Parker, and Emma Stone is in negotiations to return as Gwen Stacy (which basically means that her people are trying to up her salary as much as possible before signing any dotted lines). 

The sequel is set for a May 2, 2014 release date.
