The third installment of the 'Amazing Spider-Man' franchise will be scripted by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner with The Rhino expected to return.
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" hasn't hit theaters just yet, but Marvel is already moving fast with the third film. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner, the trio who wrote the second installment, are rehired to pen the script for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3".
Paul Giamatti, who plays "Russian mobster" Aleksei Sytsevich a.k.a super-powered villain The Rhino in the second flick, spills to Collider that he has signed a multi-picture deal. He confirms he will return in the third film but he's not sure about the fourth one.
What the Spidey will be dealing with in the next entry is still scarce, but Jamie Foxx who plays the villainous Electro in the upcoming second flick recently dished on that there were discussions to bring in the infamous Sinister Six for the franchise.
"Yes, they actually talked about it, the Sinister Six," so the "Django Unchained" actor spilled to Total Film in a recent interview. "So, fingers crossed, because when you think about it, electricity never dies, it just goes to a different place."
"The Amazing Spider-Man" film series kicked off in 2012 to a massive box office success and will continue with a second story on May 2, 2014, before the third movie comes on June 10, 2016 and "The Amazing Spider-Man 4" follows later on May 4, 2018.
Marc Webb directed the first two films with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy respectively. Webb and Garfield are expected to return to their respective posts in the third one, but there's no word on Stone's status.
Mary Jane Watson was initially planned to be introduced in the second film with Shailene Woodley cast to play her, but her scenes were eventually scrapped due to "a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship."
While waiting for the second movie to arrive next year, fans can take a new peek at how Electro will look like in a new picture posted by the director. In an image that shows "Andrew Garfield kindly showing editor Pietro Scalia how it's done," a poster that seems to display the concept art of the villain's full body is seen hanging on the wall.
