Los Angeles - Sony Pictures has confirmed two more Amazing Spider-Man films.

The movie studio will produce a total of four movies in the superhero franchise starring Andrew Garfield after setting release dates for a third and fourth film in 2016 and 2018, respectively.

The Amazing Spider-Man - directed by Marc Webb - proved to be a box office success last year and the studio quickly put a sequel, which is currently being filmed in New York City, into motion for release next year.

A third film will be released on 10 June 2016, while the fourth chapter in the web-slinging series is due for release on 4 May 2018.

Shailene Woodley as Mary-Jane

Sony's chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution Jeff Blake said: "Spider-Man is our most important, most successful and most beloved franchise. We're thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years."

The first film - which also starred Emma Stone, Sally Field and Rhys Ifans - grossed more than $750m around the world.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will see Garfield and Stone reprise their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and his first love interest Gwen Stacy, while Shailene Woodley is set to join the cast as the superhero's true love Mary-Jane Watson.

Chronicle actor Dane DeHaan will play Parker's friend Harry Osborn and Jamie Foxx has been cast as villain Electro.
