Although The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t open for another 11 months, Sony is wasting no time in setting a date for the sequel to director Marc Webb’s franchise reboot. The studio, which put screenwriter James Vanderbilt to work on the script in March, announced this morning that the follow-up will open on May 2, 2014, kicking off the summer movie season.
The first movie, which hits theaters on July 3, 2012, stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse.
