Sony is planning to create a series of spin-off films based around The Amazing Spider-Man.
The company will tap into Spider-Man’s wealth of allies and villains, which include Green Goblin and Venom, to create the spin-offs.
Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal revealed the news at a recent presentation to investors, The Wrap reports.
The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of the Marvel character after the Tobey Maguire trilogy, stars Andrew Garfield as the webslinger. The sequel is due out in April next year, and will see Garfield’s Peter Parker face off against new foes Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx).
The trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be shown before screenings of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in 3D.
‘There is a simply unifying theme that is at the heart of the film that will be very impactful,’ he said.
‘It was fun to tease out little bits of pieces of other characters and if you pay attention in this next movie, you’ll see other things that might be in store for us in the future’.
