Amazing Spider-Man 4 Release Date May Change

With Sony planning many Spider-Man sequels years ahead of time, there’s definitely going to be some changes happening. Producer Matt Tolmach recently hinted that The Amazing Spider-Man 4 may not hit theaters on May 4, 2018 after all. Actually, the current plan is for the studio to release Venom and The Sinister Six before Spider-Man 4. Huh.

“Before we know what we do with Spider-Man 4, we’re going to do Sinister Six, Venom and Spider-Man 3,” Tolmach explained to Den of Geek in a recent interview. “There is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies. So we’re just not at Spider-Man 4, because we still have a whole other Spider-Man movie and two other movies. So we don’t know yet what [Spider-Man 4] is going to be.”

Tolmach also stated that the May 2018 date is for a Spider-Man movie, but not necessarily The Amazing Spider-Man 4. This gives us the impression that it’s either Venom or The Sinister Six that will take that 2018 slot.

Meanwhile, director Marc Webb has said that he will be stepping down from the Amazing Spider-Man franchise after the third film, which is currently slated for 2016 (maybe that date can change too, who knows?). So now Spider-Man 4 is director-less, making more sense that that film would come out after Venom and Sinister Six, since both of those already have directors -Alex Kurtzman and Drew Goddard.

Aside this wacky news, you still got The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into U.S. theaters on May 2, so enjoy yourself!
