Sony announced in June that in addition to Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" which was already well in production, not just one but two more installments would follow. Most assumed that the current webbed superhero himself Andrew Garfield, would obviously be returning. But in a recent interview, Garfield revealed that may not be the case.
Garfield stated, "I mean I'm under contract for another one after this... as far as a fourth one? That's not anything to do with me. But yeah, I think what we're doing here is we've established the world. And now we get to really play inside that world. Use our imagination, and kind of expand. That's what this film is."
We've already heard that as the franchise progresses, it's going to be very villain heavy with the introduction of The Sinister 6 and beyond. It seems a bit weird however, to not have Spider-Man included in a film still titled "The Amazing Spider-Man". Don't you think? Perhaps money will solve everything, as it often does, and Garfield will be back as the franchise continues to gain popularity and financial success.
