Sony Dates Two 'Amazing Spider-Man' Sequels for 2016 and 2018

The Amazing Spider-Man

Just after hearing a rumor about the villain plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures has just announced the release dates for the third film in the wallcrawler's franchise reboot, and also the release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4. It was originally though that this new series was planned for a trilogy initially, but maybe those plans have changed. Director Marc Webb is currently shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Andrew Garfield for a May 2nd, 2014 release to kick off next summer, but as of now we're not sure if Sony will bring him back for these sequels, or if the director will even want to return.

As for the release dates, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will arrive on June 10th, 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 will kick off summer again on May 4th, 2018. That means Marvel won't be the one starting the blockbuster season in 2018, but Disney did just name two unknown Marvel comic book films for the early May release slots in 2016 and 2017. Sounds like we'll be seeing comic book movies launching the biggest movie season every year for at least the next four years (and likely well beyond that). Stay tuned for developments on these sequels and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the release date gets nearer.

What is more likely: That Sony would do a co-op with 21stFOX(that's their name now, right?) with Spidey and Fantastic Four (or X-Men); or a Sony and Disney one for Spidey and Avengers) ? Spidey has been in.....all three groups?

I don't see either happening. But I think Fox and Sony doing a one-time deal would come before either working with Disney/Marvel...because Marvel wants to have it's characters back and under their full control.

Venom had better be one of those.

When does marvel get Spidey back?

Sony would have to either give up the rights, or not go into production on a new film for X amount of years(I think it's 5). Basically...the best way to try and ensure that Marvel gets the rights back is to not give the amazing spider-man 2 any attention, don't talk about it, don't go see it, try to discourage others from seeing it. If it fails then Sony will be less likely to produce another film...and Marvel might get the rights back. The fact of the matter is, ever since the 2002 film each Spidey film has grossed less in North America than the last film...I think that's kind of telling.

Thanks for the knowledge.

No problem.

Keep those franchises locked in and don't try anything original, Hollywood...

Vote with your dollars, don't see it.

Hopefully the 2nd film is an improvement over the retreaded too much of the same ground(and in too similar of a way) as Raimi's first Spider-man film.
