Sony Has Set a Date for The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel!

Even though The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t come to theatres until July 3, 2012, Sony has set a May 2, 2014 release for the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone star in Sony’s Spider-Man Reboot due to the falling out of Sam Raimi and Sony regarding details of the never-released Spider-Man 4 with Tobey Macguire. Marc Webb will be directing The Amazing Spider-Man.

There are no other details regarding this sequel, so stay tuned for further details.
