The studio set opening dates for the third and fourth instalments of the saga in June 2016 and May 2018, respectively.
"Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we're thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years." Sony Pictures vice chairman Jeff Blake said.
"The Amazing Spider-Man", starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone with Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field, earned USD 751 million at the box office worldwide.
Original director Marc Webb is directing the second film, but has not signed on yet for installments 3 and 4.
