This summer's Spiderman reboot, The Amazing Spiderman, has been unsurprisingly revealed as the first of a new trilogy.
The blockbuster, which has already broken US box office records for the biggest opening for a movie on a Tuesday, is the first part of three web-slinging adventures for one of Marvel comics' biggest stars. The film took $35million in the US on the day of its release.
A post on the film's Facebook page read: "It's finally here! The Amazing Spider-Man is the first instalment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our fave hero's journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents."
Director Marc Webb had previously hinted at plans for a franchise.
"Movies like this tend to have sequels," he said in an interview with The Hollywood reporter. "Ultimately the audience will tell us if they want one. But I kind of thought it was an interesting thing to anticipate those storylines and think about the backstories and how we can parlay those into an ongoing story."
Spiderman star Andrew Garfield has also expressed interest in returning to the role.
