Sony confirms The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 release dates
With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in production, Sony has confirmed two more films for Andrew Garfield's webslinger...
With director Marc Webb currently hard at work in New York filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony has wasted little time putting a sequel together to last year's hit reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. The two year gap between films doesn't leave much breathing room, but Sony does seem to have got things to a point where it can turn the film around in that amount of time.
It's a good job too if the latest announcement from the studio is anything to go by. For Sony has now announced two further Spider-Man movies, and set the release date for them too. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is thus due for release on June 10th 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 is coming on May 4th 2018. Each is expected to feature Andrew Garfield, which will stretch this iteration of the franchise at least one film further than Sam Raimi's.
Sony's Jeff Blake, announcing the news, said that "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".
That should also fend off any chance of Marvel getting the movie rights back, too.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th 2014 in the UK.
