In the midst of talking up The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the interview below, Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield seem to hint that the newly tacked-on fourth film in their franchise may not be a Spider-Man movie at all, at least perhaps not a Garfield/Webb one.
Garfield says he’s signed for three films and that a 4th movie is “nothing to do with me.” Sure, I basically took that to mean he leaves the handling of negotiating for future movies to his team and not necessarily that he has nothing to do with the movie, but I found Webb’s comments in conjunction with Garfield’s more interesting.
The director tells the reporter:
We did think about this movie, from the very beginning, these movies as a series of movies, as a trilogy, to be totally frank.
Now, we know Sony is planning on spin-off movies set in the Spidey universe in the vein of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so could this mean the 4th film is really the first of one of those? Or could it be a brand new take on Spidey, a la Ben Affleck taking over Batman from Christian Bale?
Watch the interview below and read too much into it for yourself.
