‘Amazing Spider–Man 3‘ Release Date: How Long Will You Have To Wait?
Sorry, Spidey-fans — The Amazing Spider-Man 3 won’t be released for another four years, in 2018. This comes as shocking news to us because last time we only had to wait two years between The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was released in April, 2014.
After initially setting the release date for 2016, Sony’s Columbia Pictures announced its updated schedule for the web-slinger at Comic Con on Wednesday, July 23. The film will now be released on a still-unknown date in 2018.
‘Sinister Six’: Spider-Man Villain Spinoff Release Date Announced
But it’s not all bad news, because Spider-Man fans will get to see a whole other universe play out in 2016’s Sinister Six. The sextet will be supposedly comprised of some familiar faces, such as Dane DeHaan, who is looking to reprise his role as Harry Osborn/The Green Goblin!
The original Sinister Six, from the Marvel comics published in 1964, were comprised of Doctor Octopus, Electro (Jamie Foxx, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, who supposedly died), Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, Mysterio, and Vulture. No word yet on which iteration of supervillains will appear in the film, however.
So, HollywoodLifers, will you be heading out to see the new Spider-Man in 2018? How about Sinister Six, even though Andrew may not necessarily appear? Let us know what you think!
