Webb is best known for directing the critically acclaimed romantic comedy-drama “(500) Days of Summer” and the superhero films “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” which featured the Andrew Garfield iteration of the web slinger.
Webb’s most recenly directed Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot in Disney’s live-action rendition of “Snow White.”
