Hmmm....while I loved the first Amazing Spider-Man film and want more, I still don't like this. I've always been a proponent of waiting to see how a film will do before working on the next ones. I might have been fine with a 3rd film release date (they did that with this second one), but one for the 4th as well?

At least with the 3rd one, they have the second film's script done and have a reasonable idea of how it looks. There's no way at this point, they know what the third film will be like, and thus can't predict how much demand for a fourth film there will be.

It's spiderman. It will sell.

True, but I'm sure they said that about Batman & Robin, and Superman Returns. Just cause it will make money doesn't necessarily mean it's a good thing.

itll sell, he the best spiderman, he was meant to play this role.

so a saga? i have no problem with that, dont want to cram too many villians in one film especially if said villian/antihero has alot of backstory that cant possibly be ingored like that in compromised of fitting in one film

I see this as heading to a sinister six story arc then its reboot time
Sinister Six sounds very possible.

I would blend that with a Shattered dimensions-like story. Having 4 Spidey's would rule >_< Bringing back Maguire as a Spidey from one of the other universes would be friggin amazing! It would also allow Sony to undo Spidey 3 by causing the "dimension shattering" bit to occur directly after Maguire's Spidey obtains the symbiote. Completely undoing that horrible mess known as Spider-man 3,

And who knows maybe that would inspire Raimi to return and run his own Spider-man series parallel to Marc Webb's.

Highly unlikely though x( just a fan and her dreams :(

I would say that would never happen, but X-Men are doing it so it's not totally out of the realm of possibility.

I want to see Carnage, a proper Venom appearance, and I wanna see Mysterio!!!
Crazay  +   892d ago
Mysterio would be fantastic.
GenericNameHere  +   892d ago
I've always wanted Mysterio ever since the second Raimi Spider-Man movie!! I just hope that if they do, they'll let him keep his original costume with the green suit, the red cap, and the bowl thing, not the Ultimate generic guy with a flaming skull (that's Dormammu's shtick!)

totslly agree on venom. they got his look down i thought but just didnt showcase him enough. there doesnt need to be venom + another villian. there just needs to be venom and spiderman and that whole epic story alone
RedHawkX  +   892d ago
i didnt like the amazing spiderman at all. had a crap villian and retold the same stuff as the last series. and the fight scenes were short. also 2014 for this next movie? ehh thats a far ways away this next movie should be out this year. i expect the next film to have an even worse villian with jamie fox being it lol. spiderman is dead to me. at least i still have marvels avengers and there side movies and the man of steel.

2014 release for TASM 2 would be right in line with most movies. 2yrs between sequels.
wannabe gamer  +   892d ago
they are still filming the second movie right now.
Harkins1721  +   892d ago
AT least its over 5 years. And not popping them out yearly to meet demand. Take your time and make them good! :D

Oh for goodness sake can't they do a trilogy and move on, I hate Andrew as Spiderman.

I want them to move on and do a SM film where Peter is older and has been Spiderman for years.

Movie Industry: "No! We will keep retelling superheros' origins over and over and you are gonna like it!"
Mr_Nuts  +   891d ago
Urgh...they are idiots

Andrew looks like someone who would of bullied Peter Parker at high school. It looks like in the beginning they slapped a pair of thick black glasses on him and were like "there...your Peter Parker the geek"

I'm not saying Toby was perfect but least he looked the part. If only they added the "genius" part of him onto his character.

They hipster-fied him. These hollywood idiots don't even know what a real geek looks like anymore. "Duhhh, geek? That means he's cool, right?"
Heavenly King  +   892d ago
I enjoyed the first movie a lot; way more than the previous trilogy; so I am fine with it.
LoneWolf019  +   892d ago
only bad thing with telling us this now is that we have to wait D:
Sahil  +   884d ago
I'd like to point out that when Amazing Spider-Man 4 comes out, Andrew Garfield will be 35. Will he still be playing a kid out of high school then?
