CULVER CITY, Calif., June 17, 2013 – With Sony Pictures Entertainment now in production in New York on The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, slated for release on May 2, 2014, the studio is planting its flag on two future release dates for one of the most successful franchises in studio history, it was announced today by Jeff Blake, Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. The next two films in the story of Peter Parker will be released on June 10, 2016, and on May 4, 2018, respectively.

Commenting on the announcement, Blake said, “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.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers. The executive producers are E. Bennett Walsh, Stan Lee, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci.

The Amazing Spider-Man took in over $750 million at the worldwide box office last year.

Wow. Looks like Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield have their decade planned out.
 
Seems... unnecessary. Actually, that's probably not the right word, but it does feel like they're getting ahead of themselves.

Not if you truly understand Sony's modus operandi. They're approaching this property "James Bond-style", so the only thing that's going to stop it is the kind of behind-the-scenes chaos that halted the Raimi franchise.
 
This to me sounds like one of two things. Either:

A) "We've already got a huge story planned that we're gonna carefully tell on screen over the next few years!"

Or B) "We need to keep the rights to the Spider-Man character, so let's announce these release dates to let Disney/Marvel know that we're not giving up this franchise!"

I'm pretty mixed about this.

I'm pretty mixed about this.

I'd guess that their motivations are more influenced by scenario A - Marvel seems to have a decent relationship with Sony, so I don't think that's an issue. From what I've read/seen around the 'net, it seemed like there was even talk about placing Oscorp Tower in the skyline during The Avengers but it fell through due to timing issues.

In my opinion, I think keeping Spidey separate from the rest of the MCU is a good choice - there's so much material to use in his own world without crossing him over with other Marvel heroes that he deserves the screen time. Plus, keeping the Spider-Man franchise with Sony allows Marvel to develop different properties. With the exception of Spider-Man 3, I think Sony has done well with the characters so I have no issue with them keeping the rights.
 
I find it hilarious that not only Sony greenlighted a third one but a fourth one that will open the summer of 2018! I get the feeling that they really want Spidey to open the summer and I think they were probably not happy when Disney reserved a date in the first summer weekend of 2016/2017. So they quickly announced a first weekend of May 2018 release date for a Spider-Man movie.

But the good thing about this is finally, we won't have to wait a long time for a 3rd and 4th movie! I hope they keep up this 2 year gap, so they could continue this Amazing Spider-Man series at least upto a 7th film!
 
I mixed on this guess they are setting up sinister 6 but I don't think webb will do all 4 films.also they really gonna do spidey films every 2 yrs seems rushed. think they grabbed those dates because of man of steel making money they scarred wb will roll out dc movies in those dates.
 
Sony could care less about DC or Superman, really, get a grip. They are taking care of their own business here.

Sinister Six is certainly on the horizon although I doubt Webb will direct it with this two year turnout they got going.... He'll probably only do three films, but that's a guess.

as long as they continue the series as is sort of like James Bond style. no future reboot hopefully.
 
Happy with the news & as usual I hope some of these selection of characters are in the next 2.

Mysterio, Jackal, Chameleon & Shocker.

:woot:
 
This isn't "rushed" at all. It's perfect. A 2 year gap in between every spider-man movie is great that way we don't have to wait such a long time when the MCU, X-Men, and DCU keep coming out with blockbusters.
 
I wonder if maybe their planing on shooting 3 and 4 back to back
 
not anymore^ They said theyre going to edit her scenes out and put her in the third one instead
 
Yeah, you're right. I just found out lol...What's the deal with that?
 
I think its because they already have 2 love interests for Peter (Gwen and Felicia) so i'd say they're waiting a while.I also have a horrible feeling theyl recast Shalaine Woodley for ASM3 + 4 because of all the fans complaints
