Sony Plans The Next Two Spider-Man Movies

The Amazing Spider-Man

We hope Andrew Garfield didn’t have too many movies planned for the next five years or so, because Sony wants to keep him in the Spidey suit for a while yet. Displaying the confidence of a studio that feels love for its franchise, the company has just announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will arrive on June 10, 2016 and the fourth on May 4, 2018.

Even though the second film – due to touch down here next year – isn’t finished and the reaction to the first wasn’t quite as positive as all involved likely hoped, nothing will stop the superhero momentum.

Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years,” said Sony marketing boss Jeff Blake in a statement. It’s also a sign of the studio wanting to wrangle those dates before anyone else can lock them down.

While we don’t yet know who will appear in the new movies, or what their stories will be, we do at least know that they’re in development.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which features director Marc Webb back behind the camera and Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Dan DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Marton Csokas, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore and Chris Cooper in front of it, arrives in the UK on April 18, 2014. It’ll be out in the US on May 2. Given that we’re getting this one early, expect the third and fourth films to premiere here in advance of the States too.

RE: Sony Plans The Next Two Spider-Man Movies
I really liked TASM ! thought the suit was especially great! a brave departure and looked kinda mean. everything about the sequel so far looks like a step backward , from the suit design to the casting! too many villains and Mary jane is kind of a moose!Infact I hear they are editing out her part in the sequel altogether!

RE: Sony Plans The Next Two Spider-Man Movies
I am quite confused with this.. The first movie was a chick flick, see here ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8oTO8etzsk ... and the second one looks like it could make up for it, with the death of Gwen Stacy and Rhino, I am NOT looking forward to Electro, he looks ridiculous and highly doubt they will pull it off for him at least. Paul looks awesome as Rhino and I feel he will actually be the best part of the film. Andrew Garfield is a strange spiderman, he has the look, but the acting is no More

No surprise that they announced this after Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel have gone through the roof at the box office. The Amazing Spider-Man wasn't a great movie. Don't really like Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, The movie lacked the cast chemistry, humour and anarchic energy of the Raimi movies. Rhys Ifans was an utterly forgettable villain. More

RE: That's not news ...
L: Nicky C Empire, could you not use this space to tell us about something that we might not otherwise hear about? We're talking about a movie that comes out in 2018 FFS! How about telling us about a little indie movie that needs the support? 'Empire' is fast becoming the right name for you guys. You totally work FOR the studios these days, but you used to write for movie fans ... ouldn't agree more. Just recently stopped buying empire after being a loyal reader for well over a decad More

RE: Been here before...
Although there are rights issues to be considered, I don't think they would have to output the movies as regular as 2 years apart. More

RE: Sony Plans The Next Two Spider-Man Movies
This is good news. I liked the first one. Although not amazing or spectacular (puns intended) it was pretty good - the cast and the feel of it. The second one sounds promising and if rumours of a sinister six setup prove to be true, these movies could be great. Here's hoping. More

RE: Been here before...
Could this be anything to do with rights? Marvel would quite happily take back the rights to the likes of X-Men, Fantastic 4, Spiderman etc - so do Sony have to be seen to be taking positive action to retain the Spiderman rights? In other words, if they don't make films on a regular basis, will the rights revert back to Marvel? More

Didn't they lock in dates for the original Spider-man franchise up to a fourth installment? It seems a bit counter-productive to chain these big films to release dates (any film, really) because it usually ends up cutting into post-production time. More
