  • It’s interesting that they’re setting release dates before the sequel comes out. Suppose it’s a bomb? They did the same thing before “Batman & Robin” came out and we all know how that went.

    They are hedging and locking in the stars and the director to contracts. If the film (AS2) is a hit, what the studio pays them for the next films is set. If its a hit and there weren’t any contract, they could ask for more money and/or might decide that two films were enough for them and that they are moving on.

    The contracts solves both those problems.
