Sony is really, REALLY confident that The Amazing Spider-Man will be a huge success. They're so sure you'll fork over your money that they've already set a release for its sequel. That's right, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is headed your way!
What do we know about The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Nothing! We barely know anything about The Amazing Spider-Man 1, which is why Sony's decision to schedule its release seems ridiculously premature.
A source from the studio says the early commitment "speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment." The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.
Hmmm, it's fair to say that Andrew Garfield will return as the title character, but as for everyone else, who knows? Maybe they'll decide to bring in a new Mary Jane for the sequel? What about a version of Venom that actually makes sense and serves a real purpose? The possibilities are endless.
At the moment, no other films are scheduled for May 2014.
