amazing spider-man 2

Well, humanity, we may be spared the Ultimate Horror for a little while longer: The Amazing Spider-Man 3 may be pushed back from 2016 to 2017.

Why would we be blessed with such gift?  According to AICN, though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 made Sony about $700 million, it was also an abysmally awful film with no internal logic, structure, or entertainment value aside from being a flashy trifle you can stream on a boring Sunday afternoon.  It also made less than The Amazing Spider-Man, and failed, even at $700 million, to live up to Sony’s financial expectations.

And so rumor now has it that Sony will push 3 to 2017, with the hopes that maybe, just maybe, they’ll manage to make the first good Spider-Man film in 13 years.

What do you think of the Spider-Man rumors?
