Yea… the title confused the fuck out of me too, I thought Spider-man had been delayed by two years.
Anyway, Sony will indeed kick off summer 2014 by releasing The Amazing Spider-man 2 on May 2, 2014. A Sony exec told 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.” Of course they have a sequel planned. It is not about the confidence, it is the fact that they have to keep making them or the rights revert back to Marvel/Disney.
I’m gonna go for the obvious end joke hear and say: shouldn’t they be rebooting it by then? Perhaps Peter Parker dies and is replaced by a black/hispanic kid in the sequel.
