The Amazing Spider-Man sequel set for theaters May 2, 2014

Even though we’re still a full year away from the SpiderMan relaunch, which officially begins with The Amazing Spider-Man on July 3rd 2012, Sony is already hard at work on the film’s sequel! The rebooting franchise will have a second movie in theaters just about 20 months later, when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spins a web on May 2nd, 2014. James Vanderbilt will craft the sequel, just as he has the first movie, and Andrew Garfield will swing along, as well. Other than that, not much more is known about the sequel at this time – which seems about right, because there’s not that much information on the first film yet!

Spider-Man has found a new face to wear beneath the mask! Andrew Garfield has been cast as the new Peter Parker and Spidey in the next installment of the Marvel super franchise. Along with Disney and Columbia Pictures, Marvel welcomes in the twenty-six year old, who replaces the former title-holder, Tobey Maguire. It’s been 5 months since Tobey got the boot (the web?) with reportedly just 2 years until “A.G.” makes his debut in theaters, with the latest Spider-Man film to launch July 3rd, 2012 – in Spidey-Sense 3D, of course. Filming begins later this year, written by James Vanderbilt and directed by the appropriately named Marc Webb.

It looks as if Tobey Maguire’s web-slinging days are behind him. Tobey, along with director Sam Raimi, will no longer be part tof the Spider-Man movie franchise, as Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced the upcoming films will instead focus on a younger Peter Parker, still in high school. The script, penned by James Vanderbilt, will feature an entirely new cast and film-making team, ready to hit the big screen in 2012. The reboot will start an entirely new Spidey tale, likely pitting the new WebHead in the upcoming Avengers film.
