Sony Pictures has issued an official press release concerning The Amazing Spider-Man DVD/Blu-ray release date, which will hit stores November 9. The press release also includes the DVD/Blu-ray cover art.
Below you’ll find the official press release for The Amazing Spider-Man DVD/Blu-ray specifics, along with the official covert art. Check out a few behind-the-scenes clips that were released a few weeks back that delved a bit deeper into the film’s creation, specifically the sewer fight sequence, the school fight sequence and of course the post-credits scene which gave us a few clues as to who we’d be seeing as the villain in the film’s sequel.

One of the most beloved and iconic super heroes of all time reemerges in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, debuting on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, DVD, and a Limited Edition Gift Set with collectible Spider-Man and Lizard figurines, all with UltraViolet™, on Friday, November 9th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
