The Amazing Spider-Man

Sony Pictures is currently in production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but they’ve today announced release dates for two more Spider-Man films.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will hit theaters on May 2, 2014 (as we’ve known)
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will hit theaters on June 10, 2016
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 4 will hit theaters on May 4, 2018

The fact that Sony is announcing these dates shows an insane confidence in the future of this comic book franchise, and have very likely already mapped out a story roadmap for the series at least through the third film. There have been rumors about an appearance of The Sinister Six in the third movie — a villainous super-group featuring the Lizard, Vulture, Electro, Rhino, and possibly the Green Goblin. That seemed like a lot to set up in time for the third film, but spreading out the story to four films gives Webb much more room to work.
