Sony has set a May 2, 2014 release for the second "Amazing Spider-Man."

Its "The Amazing Spider-Man" comes out July 3, 2012.

The "Spider-Man" movies are a reboot of Sony's extremely successful "Spider-Man" franhise which starred Tobey Maguire. Andrew Garfield stars as Spidey in the new movie.

Marc Webb is directing next summer's "Amazing Spider-Man," which also stars Emma Stone.

The first go-round of the "Spider-Man" franchise grossed nearly $2.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

While there are no details beyond the date of "Spider-Man 2," it's fair to say the studio hopes that the key cast and filmmakers will continue in the new franchise.
