Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion
I guess we're not getting a Star Wars movie in 2018 - I imagine if we were, they would have nabbed that date.
Star Wars movies have never been released on the first weekend of May. They've been released on Memorial Day weekend or the weekend before MD weekend. I don't think Disney will use the first weekend of May for any Star Wars movies in the future. That'll remain a Marvel release slot. I wonder, though, whether there was consultation between Sony and Marvel about a Spider-Man movie taking that slot in 2018 or whether this is Sony staking it out early and showing Marvel that they intend to continue making use of that slot for Spider-Man sometimes and won't abdicate it to Marvel every time.
