Andrew Garfield will reprise his role in an Amazing Spiderman sequal, it has been confirmed.

"We could not be more confident in the direction we are taking this new Spider-Man storyline," The Daily Mail reports Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, as saying.

"We are tremendously excited to be ramping-up production again with Marc [Webb, director] at the helm and Andrew continuing on as Peter Parker. We can’t wait to share what we have in store with audiences worldwide," Belgrad added.

The film has already been given a provisional release date of May 2014, while shooting begins early next year.
