“The Amazing Spider-Man” already has its third and fourth sequels in the works. Sony has confirmed that after the release of “The Amazing-Spider-Man 2″ next year, the franchise will release two more films before 2018.
“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,” said Sony chairman Jeff Blake.
The superhero first made waves on the big screen in 2002 with “Spider-Man,” the Tobey MaGuire starrer directed by Sam Raimi. The original franchise released three films, the last being released in 2007. In 2012, a reboot from Marc Webb titled “The Amazing Spider-Man” was released starring Andrew Garfield, which went back to the lead character’s origin story and added a few more details along the way.
