The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Header

It’s not entirely surprising that the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con panel for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was just about that and not the forthcoming sequels that Sony had announcement a few months back. It is really hard to tell what the studio has planned for the iconic hero, but considering that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opens in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in 2018, there is more than enough time to plan and release bits of news. Releasing a trilogy has becoming more commonplace, but going forth with a quadrilogy is a rarity. Keeping the story fresh and the character interesting throughout four films is even more of a daunting task.

However, director Marc Webb feels up to the challenge. The director made a few comments at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend to talk about the sequels and how he intends to keep audiences interested in the Webslinger.

In an interview with CraveOnline, the director said:

“Well, I think this was conceived of as a trilogy so there was a defined architecture to the story we were telling and we had sort of a rough outline of what was going to happen. I think [for] the fourth movie, what we’ve discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie.”

I think it’s great to make a Spider-Man movie more than just about the titular hero. There is a plethora of characters that could take away the spotlight from Spider-Man.

Webb added:

“You know, what was fun about the comics is that there’s an entire sort of encyclopedia of characters and stories and histories and nuances and idiosyncrasies and off-shoots. I think that that is something that seems to be really successful and has a lot of potential so it’s sort of, as yet, undefined, but intentionally so.”

That is an interestingly vague comment, but one that we should take into consideration because in a way it will mold the current franchise. The statement makes references to the numerous story arcs, crossovers with the Fanastic Four and/or The Avengers – which is less likely to happen because they are with other studios – and other things that could change the way we see Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters May 2, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opens in June 10, 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 will be released on May 4, 2018
