Sony must really be digging Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which slings into theaters on May 2nd, 2014. Why am I saying that? Well, they just announced The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4, while also giving both films release dates.
The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is scheduled for June 10th, 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 will drop on May 4th, 2018.
This is some big news, considering that 2 isn’t even out yet. Sony is probably planning something big with the villains, since there are about four or five already confirmed for part two.
I’m not too worried, because I actually really enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man. It is slightly odd that they’re publicly planning out this far in advance, but franchises are the “in” thing right now and Sony is simply cashing in on that success by announcing the future of their Spider-Man run.
