So with The Amazing Spider-Man breaking US box office records for a Tuesday opening after taking $35 million, before then taking another $23.4 m on Wednesday's Fourth of July holiday and estimates predicting that it's having an opening week total of $125-140 million, it's no surprise to learn that two sequels have been ordered to make Marc Webb's reboot series a trilogy.
Announced via Facebook, the statement or post as you will read, "It's finally here. The Amazing Spider-Man is the first instalment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our face hero's journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents."
As you would expect, over 11 thousands nerdy Spidey fans have liked the post.
The sequel to the reboot had already been confirmed and is planned to be released in May 2014. Whilst Marvel are looking to rival The Avengers success with a spin-off for Spider-Man villain Venom planned and rumours persisting that Comics' bad guys, the Sinister Six, will also have their own movie.
Let's now see if Mr. Wayne can match this success. I don't think he'll have a problem doing so.
