In a post about the rumoured slate for Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC Comics movies (more details on that can be found by clicking here), Ain’t It Cool News┬áreveal that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 may have been pushed back to 2017.

Originally set to be released on June 10th, 2016, there are a number of possible reasons for this apparent delay. For a start, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn’t get the critical or commercial reception that Sony Pictures were hoping for, so they may have just gone back to the drawing board in order to deliver a far more satisfying third instalment a little later than originally planned.

However, with Drew Goddard recently deciding to drop out of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil series to focus on the Sinister Six spin-off, it could just be that Sony will decide to release that movie in The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘s original release slot, before a finale to the trilogy which would pit Spidey against six of his greatest foes.

It’s also believed that Marc Webb may have to shoot a movie for Fox before he can helm the next Spider-Man, and that’s a big part of the reason why an X-Men: Days of Future Past preview was attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

What do you guys think about this possible move for The Amazing Spider-Man 3?
