Several months ago Sony announced that they were already working on a sequel to The Amazing Spider-man, and now, with the reboot making mega-bucks around the globe, they’ve confirmed this will be the first part of a trilogy.
The movie was confirmed in a Facebook post, which says, ‘It’s finally here! The Amazing Spider-Man is the first instalment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our fave hero’s journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents.’
That seems to be a response to those who wondered what happened to the ‘Untold Story’ promised in the marketing materials. It appears a much larger part of the plot was originally about Peter’s parents and also added the idea that Peter didn’t get superpowers only because of being bitten by a spider. Many of these ideas appeared prominently in trailers and clips, but were cut from the final movie. However the Facebook post suggests that at least some of these threads will return in the planned trilogy.
