So many studios wish to have the first movie of a new series doing that well.
The issue is how profitable each new series can be in the Long Run,
not just with the first movie.
And lets see how the sequel does, I wont be surprised if it breaks the 1 billion mark, and even if it does around 700 again, its still a big hit, so Sony wont stop there and will do a third one.
And the thing is... Spider-Man 4 would have been bigger than the Amazing Spider-Man if it was released it last year. Of course it grossed more than 700 million because Spider-Man is the most popular character of Marvel but if you compare the box-office performance to Saimi's Spider-Man trilogy (especially if you adjust the ticket sales), TASM is the lowest grossing Spider-Man film to date.
