AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 May Be Pushed Back to 2017


In the middle of all the fuss about Warner Bros’ potential DC comic book movie line-up that landed yesterday, a little nugget of information slipped under the radar suggesting when we might next see a film for one of the big rival superhero franchises.

AICN’s Mr. Beaks casually dropped the information that Sony Pictures is pushing back the next Amazing Spider-Man film to sometime in 2017.

“I have been told that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been moved to an undetermined date in 2017,”

he explained.

Sony first announced release dates for Spidey 3 on June 10, 2016 and fourth Spidey flick on May 4, 2018, and since then Venom (from Alex Kurtzman) and Sinister Six (from Drew Goddard) spin-offs have been announced as well and rumored to come out before the fourth film. Sony even stated,

“We are expanding the universe so that we have ‘Spider-Man’ movies every year.”

It’s no secret that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hasn’t performed at the box office as Sony had hoped and reviews from critics and fans have been very mixed. (Well, it didn’t run well in US, but it did made money worldwide.)

Moreover, director Marc Webb may have to shoot another film for Fox before he can helm the next Spider-Man.

Having in mind that Goddard pulled out of Marvel’s Daredevil series to concentrate on Sinister Six, it looks as though the villain-centric movie would be the next film at bat.

For now, this is just a rumor until confirmed by Sony.
