Earlier this week, “The Amazing Spider-Man” exploded into theaters, and it sounds like there are two more flicks in the works from producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

During an interview, Tolmach told press, “We knew that it was going to be more than one, and at the very least three. We’re going to let this movie tell us what the story is.”

And on Monday, the film’s Facebook page proudly declared, "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."

From here, it sounds like the second film will be ready to debut May 2nd, 2014, though there aren’t any other details available just yet.
