Sony Moves ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3’ To 2018, Sets 2016 Release Dates for ‘Uncharted’ And ‘Sinister Six’

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 performed far below expectations, both for fans in love with Peter Parker and studio execs hoping to make a profit on what was a reportedly an $800 million dollar production, but that does not mean the world has seen the last of Peter Parker. Far from it, in fact.

Today, Sony Pictures announced that they have decided to move The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10, 2016 to some point in (probably summer) 2018. As you already know, the original release date is prime summertime box office placement, so Sony has decided to fill the now vacant weekend with the highly-anticipated adaptation of the video game franchise known as Uncharted. No star has been revealed for that project at this time, but earlier this month we learned that production will likely begin at the very beginning of 2015. We’ll bring you more on that project as soon as additional information becomes available.

Sony also informed members of the press today that the company plans on keeping their November 11, 2016 release date for Sinister Six. The film, which was originally scheduled for release after the planned events of Amazing Spider-Man 3, will now be used to make people excited about Peter Parker’s return in 2018. Will it work? Only time will tell.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is headed to home video soon. If you have not seen it yet, go ahead and wait a few more years. It’s bound to be a letdown whether you watch it now or in preparation for the 2018 release of part three. In fact, don’t even waste your time. Just watch ASM, jump to Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, and call it good.
