Sony Pictures Announces Plans for Third and Fourth Spider-Man Film


Even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is still in production, earlier today Sony Pictures boldly announced release dates for a third and fourth Spider-Man film. As fans have been aware for some time, the second installment of the franchise is set to hit theatres May 2 of next year, however, now it would seem that this sequel will be followed by a third film, scheduled to debut June 10, 2016, and a fourth, which will premiere May 4, 2018.

Taking into account Sony’s unfaltering confidence in the series, and the fact that there is still a slew of untapped villains for Spider-Man to grapple with, these movies will definitely warrant a watchful eye in the coming years. You can read the official press release after the jump.
