There has been a lot of buzz going about with Sony's "Amazing Spider Man 3." Sony has finally shed light and made statement for at least one of the rumors.

In an, article published on Forbes.com, Sony has stated that the release date of the upcoming Spider Man movie will fall sometime in 2018.

While it has previous been forecasted to hit the screen in November of 2016, Sony has made up its mind to make give Spidey some "me time" and give "Sinister Six" a push for 2016 instead.

Another "Amazing Spider Man 3" rumor has something to do with Emma Stone's switch in character. Stone starred in a supporting role for the previous Amazing Spider Man 1 & 2 movies as Gwen Stacy, Peter's love interest whom he meets at Oscorp -- where the infamous spider bit him.

It has been rumored that on the upcoming movie, instead of playing Gwen Stacy, Stone will take and play the character of Mary Jane Watson - Peter's now wife and her previous character's rival.

The switch surely would be confusing as it seems as if this is the first time in film history where in the same movie franchise, one actress gets to play two different roles. If the rumors are true about Stone's character switch, the mind-boggling but intriguing part is how the story plot will flow to make the character shift fit in.

Another concern will revolve around Stone – will she be able to create an effective and distinctive distinction between the two characters?
