Amazing Spider-Man Trilogy Announced

More Garfield Spideys to Follow

As Marc Webb's superhero reboot breaks US box-office records, Sony announces trilogy plans on film's Facebook page.
 
The Amazing Spider-Man is to be the first of a trilogy after Marc Webb's film broke box-office records in the US when it opened earlier this week.

Studio Sony made the announcement on the movie's Facebook page. On Tuesday, The Amazing Spider-Man took a record $35m on its opening day as US filmgoers flocked to see it on the eve of the Independence Day holiday. The film has also benefited from good reviews and looks likely to be one of the year's highest grossing films despite predictions in some quarters that it might struggle to compete with big beast rival superhero flicks such as The Avengers and the forthcoming The Dark Knight Rises.

"The Amazing Spider-Man is the first installment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our fave hero's journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents," Sony said on the film's official Facebook page.

The studio has been eyeing a potential sequel since at least last year, with The Amazing Spider-Man's James Vanderbilt hired to begin writing it in March 2011. Webb, who is not yet confirmed for the follow-up, has also spoken about leaving audiences wanting more at the end of the first film.

"These movies typically have a life beyond a single movie," he told Hollywood.com. "Obviously, there's a narrative obligation to tie things up and a certain pressure to tie up all the loose ends. But I feel like, why not dance with the idea that there's going to be a larger story? There's enough stuff going on, enough obstacles that Peter Parker has to face, that we didn't need to wrap up everything. We could leave people more curious about the future."

Hopefully,Spiderman can keep his identity secret...It'll be pretty hard, what  with him taking his mask off every five minutes.

I'm torn with this. I keep hearing some decent buzz with this movie and Sony has done a great job in the reboot but at the same time, I want Disney/Marvel to get the rights back and have it in their cinematic universe.

I'm with ElBaz13. I haven't seen it and I plan to stick out my boycott. I want marvel to regain the rights to this property.

it was good to a certain point i took my son to see it. I want him continuing the comic book legacy my dad started with me so movies always gets him into characters but honestly at certain points i was falling asleep. Plus Emma stone looked way to old for the role she was playing.

 I also will not be seeing this. I hope sony goes broke and Marvel gets the rights back! I will however buy the dvd..lol theres only soooo much a person can do...lol

Yeah that's not happening,  Spidey makes money for Sony so they'll be keeping the rights.  Boycotting is useless since the new one is on its way to making money.

Besides, Sony has done a great job with the franchise (although I'm not a fan of Raimi sequels) so its not an issue if they got the rights or not.  I rather good movies get made for the character then for the flicks to fail so Spider-Man can high five an Avenger in an after credit scene.

Bring on the trilogy!

Only surprise here is that they are "limiting" themselves to a trilogy.  We all know that as long as the movies are successful, and the talent remains interested, they will just keep churning them out...

I think most of us fans would love to have all the heros under one roof just so we can watch the big cross over events. That being said all the word of mouth I have gotten has been positive, as long as we stick to new villians I'm fine with a new trillogy. Would love to have a list of all the "rights" to each characters to try and figure out how likely they are to return to disney/marvel.
