Beacuse Think They Can: Sony Sets Release Dates for Third and Fourth ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Films

Sure, real life spiders generally swallow their prey whole, sometimes two or three in one big gulp? No. That's snakes. And T-rex's. Spiders do something different. Like, eat one damn thing at a time.

Hollywood Reporter confirmed today that Sony, in defiance of good spidey-sense, has officially set release dates for its third and fourth Amazing Spider-Man films -- which will swing into theaters on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018, respectively. You guys remember how ridiculously good The Amazing Spider-Man film was, right? Yeah, neither do we. Which is why Sony's decision to be so utterly un-spiderlike and just throw two more sequels out there so soon is so utterly baffling.

We don't doubt Andrew Garfield has the chops to carry four films, nor do we doubt that Emma Stone is attractive enough to be stared at for two hours every other summer, it's just like, tap on the brakes a little bit there, Sony. The first installment was middling at best, so let's just wait and see how the second one pans out, ok?

How much of an attention span does the general public have for Spider-Man? We'll just have to wait three to five years to find out, as its last installment competes with Avengers 8 and Iron Man 7.

Amazing Spiderman
Alternate Deaths, Big Lizards, and a Whole Lot of Action

The Amazing Spider-Man didn't do too bad but it didn't do too well either. No idea why the studio decided to reboot the franchise just five years after the one starring Tobey Maguire ended though. Seems a bit too soon, but despite that (and despite mixed reviews), Sony has already announced that they're moving forward with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Andrew Garfield will be back for the sequel, and we hope Emma Stone will be back, too. However, word is that Mary Jane will also be making an appearance in the movie, so that might complicate things. A lot. Read More » »

Marc Webb And Andrew Garfield Confirm Their Return For “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″. But Which Villains Should Join Them?

The news that Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield have confirmed their return to the Spiderman franchise in the director and lead actor roles respectively has been met with a chorus of hallelujahs by cinema fans.

The duo did a pretty good job establishing the new world of Peter Parker in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man, and it's exciting to think where they might take the franchise. But as we all know a superhero is only as good as the villain he is fighting so who should Spidey come up against in the sequel?

If Marc Webb Passes on ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′, Then These Guys Should Direct It

Word on the street is that Marc Webb might not come back to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2. When asked, Webb responded that he hasn't really decided yet on directing the Spiderman sequel. But it looks like the choice isn't entirely up to him, as he still owes Fox a post-500 Days of Summer sequel.

A lot of people didn't agree with Webb's vision for The Amazing Spider-Man. But to be honest, I found the movie pretty good. Sure, it had its flaws--but what movie doesn't? Overall, the story was good, the effects were above average, and seeing Andrew Garfield play opposite Emma Stone was pretty refreshing.

Summer Movie Anticipation Reaches a Fever Pitch. But Which Superhero Won the Battle of the Fanboy Hype?

Waiting for The Dark Knight Rises has been more torturous than sitting through a double screening of Batman and Robin and Catwoman.

The suspense reached its peak this week as reviews have steadily been released and special screenings have been announced and viewed. It's incredibly unfair that a group of lucky souls have had the opportunity to watch it whilst we sit at home twiddling our thumbs, counting down the minutes until it's our turn. And no, twiddling thumbs isn't a euphemism, except it total is.

But which of this summer's movies have made people the most excited before their release? Here is a look at how The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises have piqued our interest.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Will Be A Trilogy!

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.

Marc Webb Is Already Discussing Villains For ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Sequel

The Amazing Spider-Man has only just hit cinemas over the last couple of hours but the film's director Marc Webb is already discussing potential villains for the sequel. I think it's safe to assume that the film is going to make such a profit that a new film is ordered.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter the filmmaker said that, "I do think it would be tricky to totally invent a major villain, but if I did that it would be The Mime. My contribution would be a villain called The Mime. That's a joke, by the way. A joke."

Oh so it seems like he hasn't actually been thinking about it then. The lying son of a bitch.
