Amazing Spider-Man Trilogy Confirmed
Facebook page makes plans official

Amazing Spider-Man Trilogy Confirmed

While word on the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man has been official for a while now, very little has been said beyond that. But with the movie now earning solid returns at the box office (it took $35 million on its launch day Tuesday), the first proper mention of the T-word ("trilogy", that is) has arrived via the movie’s official Facebook page.

It’s not shocking that producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach would look to keep the story ticking over; after all, the Sam Raimi version spawned three films, so they’ll be aiming to get at least that much from the rebooted universe, even if they do have to shove Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone into cryogenic freezers to keep them looking fresh as the years roll past.

The first movie – amid talk of edited plotlines and changed ideas – certainly leaves enough web-threads dangling to keep the mystery deepening about not only Peter Parker’s parents, but the man in charge of Oscorp.

With Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman recently hired to overhaul James Vanderbilt’s script for the second film, part two of the plan is well underway. From the sounds of it, the idea is for the Spider-universe to expand out in much the same way as Marvel’s other big heroes have, with the Venom spin-off being developed by Chronicle’s Josh Trank expected to play a part in the future. Arad and Tolmach have also made reference to developing the Sinister Six villain squad (which includes the likes of Doc Ock, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio) as the fuel for future outings. Not to mention a future redheaded love interest for Mr Parker…

But if you want the best current chat from the Spider team (plus analysis from your friendly neighbourhood Empire gang) and you’ve seen The Amazing Spider-Man already, check out our spoilerific pod-chat with Arad and Tolmach.

The Punisher
Spidey's rogue's gallery is awesome, but I'd love to see a guest appearance by The Punisher (ThomasJane), maybe saving his ass from someone like Kraven the Hunter, and giving Spidey some serious grief for preventing him smoking some criminal punks Frank Castle style. More

Keep em comming
Who was the man in the shadows, Judas Traveller or Raven perhaps then introduce Norman Osbourne ready to have him kill off Gwen Stacy in the third, actually I think he will br Mysterio -traditionally nothing to do with Oscoro but simply better known. As long as they keep focused on plot (like the Avenger characters) and not sacrifice it for popular characters (like phenom in SM3 -spoiled a good Sandman Story and cheapened the phenom character, Batman Forever - why was Two Face there, Simply bec More

Great news!
I really enjoyed "Amazing" especially as a Spidey fan. Hopefully this will mean a considered plot that runs through until the end. It's sad that Doc Ock and Green Goblin have already been used in previous films so we'd hear more moans about the new ones re-treading Raimi's trilogy but I do expect to see GG return. More

Bring On The Carnage...
So many villains to choose from but why the Sinister Six? Didn't everyone have a hissy fit at 3 villains in the last Raimi movie? More

I hope they do Venom as a main villain. Spidey 3 wasted him. More
