Will We See Spidey Again Before The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2016?

We know Sony are keen on stretching the Spider-Man web as thin as it’ll go, but will we really see another Spidey flick in-between now and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2016?

It’s all rumor, speculation and conjecture right now, but a report suggests that Andrew Garfield – the star of the franchise as the titular superhero - has been offered a multi-million dollar deal to play Peter Parker and his all-action alter-ego until 2020. What’s more, he's also contracted to appear in movies in 2015 and 2016.

“Andrew is already contracted to make two more films for release in 2015 and 2016... But we are looking to tie him to the role for as many as a further four pictures given the huge success the franchise is enjoying... The part is pretty much his for as long as he chooses... He is even being offered a box office profit-sharing deal to stay in the Spidey suit for another six years,” a senior source at Columbia Pictures, who joint-own the franchise alongside Marvel, claimed. Moviepilot.com had the quote. 

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a worthy sequel and a resounding success. It only scored 53% on Rotten Tomatoes from around 250 reviews, but it grabbed a touch over $633m from the global box office.

A quickly turned around movie to sit in-between that and the already ambitious 2016 release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would have to take the story in a new direction by way of an exciting spin-off or face nullifying the franchise’s potency. Three films a decade – as long as they’re high quality and worthy of the Spider-Man name – are better then than 10 ill-conceived money grabbers.
