Sony announces 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' release date

Sony revealed plan for another Spidey movie that is target for release by May 2, 2014 or about two years after the release of its predecessor which came out July 2012. This announcement is done Augus 2011, 11 months before the release of Amazing Spider-Man.

Amazing Spider-Man 2

Andrew Garfield stars in the role of Peter Parker, stepping into the red boots of Tobey Maguire. Emma Stone plays his love interest, Gwen Stacy. But, its not sure until now if director Marc Webb still directs the sequel.

Sony wants Marc Webb to direct the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, and Webb wants to come back to continue the story he started to tell in the first movie.  The studio feared that Webb may not be able to return due to “obstacles”. The problem is Fox Searchlight, who has a claim on Webb—the director still owes the studio that made (500) Days of Summer at least one more film. Fox gave Webb some time to direct The Amazing Spider-Man, but is understandably unwilling to give him another couple years to make the sequel.

Possible negotiations to make Webb direct the movie is still on-going. But, Sony needs to decide now to aim for the target date of release. If they will find new director if he can't make it all.
