'Spider-Man' sequel confirmed
A sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man has been confirmed.
Although the film – starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey – will only be released in July, studio Sony has already revealed plans for a follow-up, which should hit cinemas in May 2014.
The sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man is expected to start production in the first quarter of 2013.
A script for the sequel is being written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and producers
Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad have said: "Alex and Bob have a unique ability to write a great character and spectacular action that makes them pitch perfect for Spider-Man.
"They have an innate understanding of what makes Peter Parker not just a superhero but a hero for us all."
Kurtzman and Oric are best known for their work on the reboot of the Star Trek franchise, directed by JJ Abrams.
