Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton told investment analysts that the company has "a number of scripts" in the works for stories in the Spider-Man universe, according to Deadline.  "We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man," he said. 

Sony has the rights to Spider-Man and related characters, but thus far has only used those rights for its two series of Spider-Man movies.  The second in the Amazing Spider-Man series is due out May 3, 2014 (see "New 'Amazing Spider-Man' Photos").
