Today, the guys over at Ain't It Cool News today have gotten word on a possible delay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been a financial success it wasn't loved by many fans for its over saturation of the Spider-Man universe. A lot like what happened with Iron Man 2.
Now according to their sources it seems that Sony may hold off on the sequel:
“What does [Warner Bros' plan] mean for Marvel Studios? Fuck all, really. DC has to prove they can compete before Marvel makes any changes to their schedule. As for the Marvel orphans at Fox and Sony, I don’t know much about the latter, but I have been told that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 has been moved to an undetermined date in 2017. Time for a second reboot?”
Now that doesn't mean one of the Spider-Man spin-off movies may take its place in 2016. Those include Venom and The Sinister Six.
Until, something official comes out take with a grain of salt...
