Andrew Garfield reveals that while he has a contract for one more Spider-Man film, he’s currently not involved with Amazing Spider-Man 4.
While we thought that Amazing Spider-Man 4 would simply be another sequel with Peter Parker (and possibly Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane), it was recently reported that it could be the start of something new.
According to Andrew Garfield, we may be looking at a new hero entirely or simply a bevy of new villains being introduced. He recently revealed in an interview with Yahoo! that “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.”
Now Andrew could be involved in Amazing Spider-Man 4, it could just be more similar to The Avengers. Where we saw characters from many different Marvel characters join together. The way Garfield’s quote reads, it sounds like he simply doesn’t know what will be happening after the third film hits theaters.
It’s possible that Sony is simply looking to do what Disney and Marvel have done so successfully by creating a universe filled with multiple heroes and villains. While Spider-Man is a Marvel character, the rights belong to Sony, along with all the villains that he encounters in the comics.
We’ll be very interested to find out what Sony’s plans are, as it seems they’re incredibly excited about the potential future of Spider-Man spinoffs or entirely new heroes being introduced in the same world.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 release date is set for May 2, 2014. Stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will be returning as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx (Electro) will also be in the film, along with Sally Fields, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, and Colm Feore.
The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will hit theaters June 10, 2016. The Amazing Spider-Man 4 will be released May 4, 2018.
