A new report says the film is being bumped by a year...
It could be a while before we see the webslinger back in action on the big screen. Ain't It Cool News reports that Sony is pushing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 back from its scheduled June 10th, 2016 start date to an undetermined weekend in 2017.
The site doesn't give a reason for the delay, although there could be any number of possibilities. Andrew Garfield and Shailene Woodley (the latter of whom was set to play Mary Jane before she was cut from Amazing Spider-Man 2) are both in-demand actors which could cause scheduling issues; Marc Webb may also has designs on directing another film in the middle. Meanwhile, Sony is at work on spin-offs The Sinister Six and Venom, both of which could be taking resources away from the Spidey sequel. Whatever the reason, start your speculation engines now!
