From Sony's point-of-view, Spider-man and the world around him are just getting started. Not only are the already talking about movies beyond the second and third, but also growing the entire spider-man universe.
This is news to director Marc Webb however, who has only signed on for a trilogy and doesn't know what he will do once he wraps the story he intended to tell.
...we did think about these movies from the very beginning as a series of movies… Really a trilogy, to be totally frank.
Peter Parker actor, Andrew Garfield is of the same mind.
I’m under contract for another one after this. As far as a fourth one… that’s not anything to do with me.
This means they will either have to shell out big bucks to resign the actor, or move on. Certainly they could continue recasting without rebooting the franchise, ala James Bond, but will they?
This could certainly open up the possibility of other popular versions of Spider-Man. We have an imposter Peter, possessed by Dr. Octopus, occupying the pages of Superior Spider-Man currently. Fans are not only praying for the return of Peter, but even Ben Reilly, one-time despised spider-clone would be welcomed now by some. But most of all, Ultimate Spider-Man's Miles Morales has proved quite popular and offers the studio new possibilities.
So, what say you? Can Spider-Man continue on in the movies without a Peter Parker or should they just continue recasting the role without rebooting the franchise?
