For his movie titles, Sam Raimi went with simple numbers. Then Marc Webb looked to the comics and used “The Amazing” in his own, with plan to use numbering to differentiate his sequels. Now, however, it seems Sony Pictures is thinking about adding a subtitle to The Amazing Spider-Man 2. A Comic Book Movie reader wrote into the site and said that at a recent Mall of America screening of Captain Phillips, Sony reps were polling audience members on three different subtitles for May 2014 sequel.
