Would you be shocked if you found out that a comic book franchise is aiming to be a trilogy? I hope not.
If you blinked, you might have missed it.While trying to get followers to buy tickets early this week to The Amazing Spider-Man, the movie’s official Facebook page quietly confirmed the film is the first in a trilogy: “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.”
Announcing a movie projected to do well will be part of a trilogy before it even debuts is nothing new in Hollywood, but this might just be the first time it’s been done so casually on a Facebook page.
I myself saw Amazing Spider-Man last night, and really dug it. The plot is “eh”, but the actors and the chemistry sizzled and popped, so I’m glad that everyone is involving is getting another chance to dive into the universe.
