Via MTV News — Face it, Sony — you're about to hit a sticky situation.

Andrew Garfield is signed and sealed to play Peter Parker in a third film beyond next summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," but beyond that? Nothing. The British actor confirmed in a recent interview with Yahoothat Sony's planned "Amazing Spider-Man 4," set for release in 2018, is not on his radar.

"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," he said. Director Marc Webb added that he's always conceived of his "Spider-Man" vision as "a trilogy to be totally frank," indicating that he, too, has no plans for a fourth "Spider-Man" film.

'Why Can't Spider-Man Be Gay?' Asks Andrew Garfield

"Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a gay man can..."

Why can't Peter Parker be gay or bisexual? That's what Andrew Garfield wants to know. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2" star revealed that he's half-seriously/half-jokingly pressured producers to make "M.J." a dude.

"Why can't we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality?" he says he told producer Matt Tolmach. "It's hardly even groundbreaking!... So why can't he be gay? Why can't he be into boys?" Get More »

Mary Jane Watson may have played a central role in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but she won't show-up in the rebooted version until 2016.

Yes, there were set photos of "The Descendants" star Shailene Woodley floating around from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," but those scenes have either been axed or will be saved for the third movie, "Superman: The Movie"/"Back to the Future"/"Kill Bill"/"The Lord of the Rings" style.

According to a new interview in Entertainment Weekly (which we became hip to thanks to Superhero Hype), Woodley understandably isn't super stoked about the news, but she gets the reasoning behind it. Get More »

Two More 'Spider-Man' Sequels On the Way

Columbia Pictures Columbia Pictures

We don't call this site NextMovie for nothing. We've got news on release dates for two more sequels to "The Amazing Spider-Man."

Sony Pictures is smartly making sure those Spidey rights don't default and slip back to Marvel anytime soon (a la "Daredevil" and sorta with "Ghost Rider," for example). They've got release dates on the schedule for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," of course, plus a second sequel and another one beyond that, running all the way into 2018. Get More »

Chris Cooper Is the Green Goblin in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Last summer's superhero reboot "The Amazing Spider-Man" was pretty cool, mostly because of the chemistry between stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, but as much as we love The Lizard, the action scenes were just kind of ho-hum. You know, fighting a big gekko is cool and everything, but we like our Spider-Men to be in a little more danger.

Well, someone at Sony apparently fells the same way, because according to Heat Vision, Oscar winner Chris Cooper has just signed on to play the sinister Norman Osborn in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

Look out, Spidey, the Green Goblin is back! Get More »

New 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Costume: 'My What Big Eyes You Have!'

hr_The_Amazing_Spider-Man_2_1

When Sam Raimi held the reins of the "Spider-Man" franchise he basically kept the webslinger's costume consistent, that black gooey alien Symbiote suit notwithstanding.

Of course, any Batman or Iron Man fan will tell you a character's suit usually changes somewhat from movie to movie depending on the whims of the toy company machine. Hence, reboot director Marc Webb has given ComingSoon the first glimpse of Spidey's new duds from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Get More »

Sam Raimi Refuses to Watch 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

Columbia Pictures Columbia Pictures

Director Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy was one of the most popular and lucrative series in film history, so it's safe to say that they hold a special place in the director's heart. And that's just compounded by the fact that he didn't actually want to quit the series. So needless to say, his feelings about last year's franchise reboot, "The Amazing Spider-Man," are... complex.

Complex enough that Raimi refuses to even watch it. Get More »

Mark Webb Twitter

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but when that picture is a photo of the new Harry Osborn in the upcoming superhero blockbuster 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2," it's more accurate that a picture is worth about 10,000 re-tweets.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' Amazing Tuesday Spawns a Trilogy

Columbia Pictures

Usually when a big Hollywood studio has to decide whether or not to give the greenlight to a potential sequel, it can be a long and arduous process. First they have to consider box office recipts and weigh them against production and marketing costs. Then they need to factor in ancillary revenue streams like merchandise and Blu-ray sales. And even if the money part works out, then they still have to check their upcoming slate of projects to see if it fits in. It can take a long time.

Unless, of course, the film in question is "The Amazing Spider-Man," which according to Total Film did so well at the box office yesterday that Sony has already officially decided to make not one but two sequels. Get More »
