Even before the release of “The Amazing Spider Man 2“, Sony Pictures has seemed to settle on the release dates of its sequels: “The Amazing Spider Man 3” in 2016 and “The Amazing Spider Man 4” in 2018. However, owing to the surprising and below par reception of the first sequel, the premiere of “The Amazing Spider Man 3” will be put off to 2018 while “Sinister Six” will have its debut next year.
Also, Sony Pictures has announced that it will carry out a casting call through CBM, taking aim at Andrew Garfield and Dane DeHaan to return in the film.
But the ongoing excitement for the movie, which has already been spoiled once, may just be spoiled once again as Sony’s plans for the film is still drifting airborne with franchise agreements still under shaky negotiations.
Flickering Myth reports that “plans for the Spider-Man franchise seem to be completely up in the air at present, with various discussions taking place concerning the possibility of bringing Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with ‘Captain America: Civil War’, or taking the character in a new direction with yet another reboot.”
It can be recalled that “The Amazing Spider Man 2” did not do well in terms of audience reception and Box Office returns, and now Sony is hardly getting any commitment for the franchise of the film because of that. Cinema Blend even reveals that Marvel Studios had plans to drop Garfield as lead, rendering the creation of “Spider Man 3” in question.
Fortunately, several sources confirm that the creation of the film is underway as Bill Beckman Casting released a casting call searching for male and female extras “of all ages and ethnicities, ages 18-65”, Cinema Blend reports.
It has also been confirmed that Sony will be the producing studio. This would mean that Sony’s deal with Marvel Studios will come to an end and Spidey may no longer be appearing with any other Marvel Studio superheroes. And because Sony ends ties with Marvel Studios, the release of Sinister Six may also be put on hold.
Bill Beckman Casting also verifies that “both Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider Man) and Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn/ Green Goblin) will be returning for another adventure that will see Spidey ‘facing a new challenge to protect New York City'”, as also shared by Flickering Myth.
But there are more reasons to shrug it off and despite the disappointing show of the “Spider Man 2”: Andrew Garfield is coming back and a casting call means that filming may have already started.
Nonetheless, Flickering Myth reports that Bill Beckman Casting is a “fradulent agency” so there’s a possibility that Garfield and DeHaan may not reprise their roles on the film and Sony might do a reboot on the series.
There is no exact release date of the film but definitely it would be in 2018.
