Sony sure are confident about this
The second film isn’t even out until next year, yet Sony have announced that The Amazing Spiderman 3 will be released on June 10th 2016 and number 4 on May 4th 2018, which means from now until then we will be getting a new Spiderman film every 2 years.
Now regardless of what you thought of the first film, (the overriding feeling seemed to be ‘could do better’) it was pretty popular for Sony and was made on a shoestring budget compared to what is the norm for this sort of blockbuster. So of course there will be sequels.
But to greenlight them this far in advance publicly, when we aren’t even sure if the superhero movie bubble won’t have popped by then? Thats risky.
Still, I’m hopeful. The first film seemed to crib from the better parts of the Ultimate universe, which I quite liked. So lets see where Marc Webb takes this.
The Amazing Spiderman 2 is out next year.
