The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is officially green lit and set to release on May 2nd, 2014 — two years after the start of the rebooted series.
Their confidence in the new Spider-Man reboot shines through in their comments to Deadline:
“I think it speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment.”
Announcing the release date this far in advance will allow Sony and the crew behind “Amazing Spider-Man” to proceed with the sequel quicker than normal, enabling Sony to pump the movies out at a quicker pace.
How do you feel about this decision? Given the star power and history behind the franchise, do you think Sony is right in assuming that “The Amazing Spider-Man” will be a box office smash?
