Andrew Garfield will don the Spider-Man suit again.

Sony pictures announced Friday that Garfield will star as Peter Parker in the next chapter of The Amazing Spider-Man, alongside director Marc Webb who helmed the highly successful reboot this summer.

The studio statement added that Emma Stone is also in talks to return to the blockbuster franchise and is expected to reprise her role as Gwen Stacy -- the beautiful love interest for the young web-slinger.

The new chapter -- in 3D -- of the Spider-Man saga is set for release in on May 2, 2014, with production beginning in early 2013.

The Amazing Spider-Man has been one of the highlights of what has been a dismal summer for Hollywood movies. The reboot to the Spider tale has taken in more than $751 million worldwide.
