Re: The Amazing Spider-Man Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
I'd say a sequel is all but certain.
A sequel was already
certain, since it was greenlit in principle about a month or two after the first one finished shooting.
It IS possible that TASM2 would've been scrapped had the first one underperformed at the BO, but given that the second's release date has already been set in stone, that doesn't strike me as being very likely, meaning that, even had TASM not lived up to expectations BO-wise, we would still be getting at least one sequel.
