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 releaseÃ‚Â VenomÃ‚Â and The Sinister SixÃ‚Â beforeÃ‚Â Spider-Man 4. Huh.
“Before we know what we do withÃ‚Â Spider-Man 4, we’re going to doÃ‚Â Sinister Six,Ã‚Â VenomÃ‚Â andÃ‚Â Spider-Man 3,” Tolmach explained toÃ‚Â Den of GeekÃ‚Â in a recent interview.Ã‚Â “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 forÃ‚Â aÃ‚Â 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 beÃ‚Â stepping downÃ‚Â 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 outÃ‚Â afterÃ‚Â Venom and Sinister Six, since both of those already have directors -Alex KurtzmanÃ‚Â andÃ‚Â Drew Goddard.
Aside this wacky news, you still got The Amazing Spider-Man 2Ã‚Â swings into U.S. theaters on May 2, so enjoy yourself!
