Mumbai: Spider-Man will cast his web into Indian theatres on May 1, a day before the film releases in the US.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2', the Marc Webb-directed sequel of the superhero reboot will release on Thursday, 1 May in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The fans can enjoy the film in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.

"The release date will take advantage of the fact that most states have a public holiday on May 1. As it is, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' releases during the opportune school and college vacation period which is ideal for our audience," said Kercy Daruwala, MD Sony Pictures India.

The most successful franchise in the history of Columbia Pictures, the four Spider-Man films to date have taken in over USD 3.2 billion worldwide.

Andrew Garfield is returning as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man with his real-life girlfriend Emma Stone playing his onscreen love too as Gwen.

This time Spider-Man is up for a bigger battle as he encounters formidable villain Electro (Jamie Foxx), who is far more powerful than he is.
