Back in March, we told you that James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Losers) had been hired to write the follow-up to director Marc Webb‘s forthcoming film, The Amazing Spider-Man. With the first film still almost a year away from your local movie theater, Sony’s Columbia Pictures has already set a release date for that Vanderbilt penned sequel.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or whatever the final title is for the film, is now slated to hit theaters on May 2nd, 2014. Less than two years after the first film premieres.
The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Julianne Nicholson, Chris Zylka, C. Thomas Howell and Annie Parisse is slated to hit theaters on July 3rd, 2012.
