Two major superhero blockbusters will hit theaters in May, in the shapes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Both are expensive comic book movies that have a direct sequel already in development and scheduled for release in 2016 (The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and X-Men: Apocalypse, respectively); furthermore, the pair may serve as springboards for spinoffs arriving in the future. That includes a Venom and Sinister Six film set in Sony's Spider-Man movie universe, while the list of potential X-Men spinoffs includes X-Force and a handful of solo character films (see: Deadpool).

In other words, there's a lot riding on these movies doing well at the box office, which accounts for the sheer amount of marketing push behind each film thus far - with plenty more ahead. Today's list of items to add to the pile include some behind the scenes photos from post-production on the Amazing Spider-Man sequel, along with yet another intriguing Days of Future Past image that hints at multiple timelines in the story.

Director Marc Webb recently Tweeted the following Amazing Spider-Man 2 images, which offer a look at the post-production crew and the facilities where editing procedures like sound mixing and 3D processing are currently underway on the sequel. Webb spent the entirety of the film's production releasing images through his Twitter account, so give the man credit - he's been doing his part to keep fans engaged in the film's progress (through the magic of social media).
