Andrew Garfield May Not Return For ‘Amazing Spider-Man 4′

Even before Sony Pictures officially announced The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 in June, the films have been the subject of significant speculation, mostly involving the potential introduction of the Sinister Six and cryptic comments by director Marc Webb that the fourth installment “might not just be a Spider-Man movie.”

However, amid all the questions about heroes and villains, few have thought to ask whether franchise star Andrew Garfield will be sticking around for the long haul. Judging from the actor’s latest comments, the answer is … possibly not.

Telling Yahoo! Movies that the fourth film is “all news” to him, Garfield revealed, “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.”

Opening May 2, 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also stars Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and Chris Cooper. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is scheduled to arrive on June 10, 2016, followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 4 on May 4, 2018.

    If he doesn’t return, then Sony will just reboot the whole thing again with another actor, IMO. Hollywood loves reboots and they’re coming quicker and quicker these days.

  • DarthTigris

    Just means he’s not under contract as of now. He’s saying exactly what he should be saying.

  • Russkafin

    They all say that.

  • The Red One

    Maybe the fourth could be a sort of crossover or a spin-off of a Spidey’s universers’ character.

    mile morales anyone….? As played by Jaden Smith. His dad does seem to have a good working relationship with Sony (see MiB franchise).

  • Spidey Sense

    Holy crap. That has to be the absolut worst idea ever. No one wants to see a Spiderman/Morales movie. NO ONE!!!

  • BeastieRunner

    Please just treat it like Bond and end the reboots …

  • Jonathan Robinson

    speak for yourself…

    I just don’t want Jaden anywhere near it. Not until he makes up for the horrific performance in After Earth. I mean I understand you’re at the mercy of the director (M. Night… *shudder*) but still… it was so… wooden.

    Ben Reilly, the Scarlet Spider… if they can get someone who even remotely resembles Garfield

  • XSpectreGreyX

    Maybe they’ll bring in Ben Reilly or Miles Morales. It’d feel weird to have an actor portray a character for three movies and not the fourth.
