Sony’s bringing back The Amazing Spider-Man 2 writers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner to pen the script for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news this afternoon, and says that Sony is looking to bring back director Marc Webb as well.

Back in June, Sony announced the release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 — June 10th, 2016 and May 4th, 2018 respectively. It’s been heavily rumored that The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is due out May 2nd, 2014, will help set up the future sequels.

We won’t know if The Amazing Spider-Man 2 writers coming back for the sequel is a good thing until we all see the movie next year. We won’t have to wait long to get a sneak peek… the first trailer is expected to be released in about a month. Stay tuned to Spider-Man News for the latest!
