Sony Announces The Amazing Spider-Man 3 & 417.06.13 # News # 4 Comments
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is swinging towards a May 2, 2014 release, but Sony is already thinking about Peter Parker’s future beyond that, marking two further movies in the calendar.
Clearly confident in the Spidey franchise (or just wanting to play things safe by locking everything down early), Sony has announced that third Spider-Man movie will arrive on June 10, 2016 while the fourth outing will touch down on May 4, 2018.
Sony’s marketing boss Jeff Blake said in a statement: “Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.”
While we have no idea of what might be happening in these movies, or who might be appearing in them, we at least know that they’re solidly in the pipeline.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will see Andrew Garfield reprise of Peter Parker/Spiderman, who will be taking on Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as Rhino. Emma Stone will be returning as Gwen Stacy while Shailene Woodley joins as Mary Jane Watson. Like its predecessor, the film is directed by Marc Webb.
