|Indian fans will have a head start over the US fans in catching the next Spiderman film.

The movie will release here in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu; it will be available to view in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
“The release date will take advantage of the fact that most states have a public holiday May 1," Kercy Daruwala, managing director, Sony Pictures India, said in a statement.
“As it is, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' releases during the opportune school and college vacation period which is ideal for our audience," he added.
