The sequel to 'The Amazing Spider-Man' already has a release date... perhaps this story from Entertainment Weekly suggests that Spidey's film next year is going to be a quality endeavor:

Though audiences still have to wait until next July 3 for The Amazing Spider-Man to hit theaters, Sony is clearly very bullish on its reboot of the web-slinging franchise — so much so that they’ve already greenlit a sequel and staked out a release date of May 2, 2014 for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. “It speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment,” says a studio source. No further information is available on the sequel at this point, though it seems safe to assume that the new Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield, will be back wearing the suit again. But hey, it’s never too early for fanboys to start lobbying for their favorite villains, so have at it: Who would you like to see Spider-Man square off against in the franchise’s next chapter?

  1. I'm excited for the movie either way...

  2. Wow, the studio must really have a lot of faith in the film to green light the sequel so fast. I think the studio should actually wait to see how The Amazing Spider-Man does at the box office before making a sequel. I mean look at what happened to Green lantern. Warner bros was so confident that Green Lantern would do so well that they were already planning a sequel before it came out.

  3. Well, Sony actually has no choice but to make web-slinger sequels or else they'll lose the property...

    Green Lantern is a different situation, but they should hope for a better product, yes.
