    'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Scheduled For May 2, 2014

    Well, that was fast. While it's not unusual for sequel talk to surround franchises before they're released, it is pretty unheard of them to get dated, but Sony believes they have a winner on their hands as they've gone ahead and slated "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" for a May 2, 2014 release. That's les...
