The reboot of Spidey starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) was a worldwide hit, and grossed over $260 million. Both actors return for “THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2” - and will be joined by Jamie Foxx as super-villain “Electro”, and SIDEWAYS star Paul Giametti as “The Rhino”.
What’s interesting is that “THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2” isn’t out until May 2014, but Sony has already hired the same writers to start work on the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and, in a move that reeks of studio confidence in the franchise, they’ve also already announced release dates for both 3 AND 4!! Part 3 is due in June 2016, and 4 in May 2018!!!
The director of parts 1 and 2 is expected to return for directing duties on Part 3, and that’s a good thing, because, apart from his filmmaking skill, he has the best qualifications for a director of a spider-man movie ever, because his name is Marc Webb!
