‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ to Spin New Trilogy

 I’ll admit, The Amazing Spider-Man is a lot better than I expected it to be. Considering the fact that it’s a completely unnecessary reboot of a franchise launched just one decade ago—retelling an origin story that we already know by heart—the movie’s action sequences are superior to anything in the Sam Raimi trilogy, and the film sets the stage for even better Spidey films.

Speaking of those better films, Sony Pictures has confirmed that The Amazing Spider-Man is the first of a trilogy. A post on the film’s official Facebook page stated the following:

“It's finally here! The Amazing Spider-Man is the first installment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our fave hero's journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents.”

If you’ve seen the film, you know that Peter Parker’s parents play a much larger role than they did in Raimi’s trilogy. That said, what do you think the remaining films will reveal? Furthermore, who will Spidey be squaring off with next? My money’s on the Green Goblin, especially since filmmakers went to great lengths to hide what Norman Osborn actually looks like in the first film.
