“The Amazing Spider-Man” was an OK, but unnecessary reboot. The sequel, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” sees Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return and the arrival of Jamie Foxx (Electro) and Paul Giamatti (Rhino). Now Sony is looking ahead, setting the dates for “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 4”, which will come out on June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018.
