Andrew Garfield knows what he's doing for the next few years, and now you do too.
Said Jeff Blake, chairman, worldwide marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures: “'Spider-Man' is our most important, most successful and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.”
No news yet on whether Marc Webb, the director of the first two "Spider-Man" films, will stay at the helm of the project as it continues.
The director is currently in production on "Spider-Man 2" in New York, working from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt.
The studio is planting a flag on a wide-open calendar: An untitled Marvel movie will be debuting three weeks ahead of "Spider-Man 3" in 2016, while its 2018 date can count only an untitled June Pixar film as its competition.
