The Amazing Spider-Man 2
With Sony promising a Spider-Man universe movie "every year," if you're already exhausted by the relentless show-everything-before-you-see-movie marketing campaign, you ain't seen nothing yet. But until those "Sinister Six" and "Venom" flicks get scheduled, we're still on a bi-annual basis for Spidey, with the next one coming this summer.

Outside of "The Amazing Spider-Man," Sony doesn't have much in the way of live action franchises, and that could be a problem. “It’s creative entropy, and I think there’s been too much of a reliance on ‘Spider-Man.’ They need some other things to build out,” media analyst Harold Vogel has opined.

Back in 2012 when "The Amazing Spider-Man" was gearing up to hit theaters, the extent of Sony's marketing plan was revealed when someone went through all the trailers and clips that dropped in advance of the film, and put together a 25-minute reel of footage. So at this point, our only question is by which factor the advance spill of material for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will exceed its predecessor.

Was it weird that Sony took down the recent “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” trailer? It was kind of spoilery, but then again, it featured much of the same footage as the recent Superbowl spot. A conspiracy afoot, much like the one hinted at in Marc Webb’s upcoming Spider-Man sequel?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Sony has always clutched Spider-Man close in their stake on the future of big-budget superhero films, but their latest ante shows they’re eager to also expand the franchise to just about every villain around. In addition to three forthcoming “Amazing Spider-Man” sequels, last month the studio announced “Venom” and “The Sinister Six” films fronted by a “brain trust” of folks like Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Drew Goddard ("Cabin In The Woods"). A recent chat with Orci revealed a glimpse of exactly how they’re going to pull off that massive feat.
