The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set for May 2nd, 2014

Sony announced today that they’re going to release THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 on May 2nd, 2014. Of course, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN doesn’t open until July 3rd, 2012, but I guess Sony wanted to save the date ahead of time. I guess with Spider-Man, you can’t really go wrong and the film will make money no matter what, but I’m curious to see whether Sony is going to end up in a situation that Warner Brothers was in with SUPERMAN RETURNS. If you remember back to before it was released, there was talk that WB was planning multiple sequels and had all the cast members locked up for the next 10 years (literally). But then the movie disappointed and everything was scrapped until Christopher Nolan agreed to produce the reboot.
Unfortunately, everything we’ve seen so far (albeit, not much) has disappointed and I’m not convinced this version of Spidey is going to impress. But it’s far too early to write it off at this point as we still need a few more stills and a full length trailer. Either way, Sony seems intent on making a sequel.
