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.

These Silhouettes Capture the Origins of Your Favorite Superheroes

Creative Bloq Creative Bloq

Everyone loves a good superhero movie. But with all of these remakes, reboots, prequels and sequels (see: "Man of Steel", "The Amazing Spider-Man", "The Wolverine", this new "Batman vs. Superman" business, et al.), it seems as if we've been watching the same films over and over again, just with a different set of actors and a few tweaks here and there.

However, there is a reason why those big Hollywood execs think these movies are worth rebooting: because they're gonna sell. Audiences have come to idolize and identify with these iconic characters and their journeys — so much that we're willing to watch their stories get re-hashed on the big screen time and time again.

Artist Khoa Ho has beautifully captured this sense of timelessness in his new poster series, which is aptly titled "Trials of the Past." In these illustrations, Ho puts his own spin on the classic superheroes we've all come to know and love. Get More »

Hugh Jackman Wants Wolverine to Play with 'The Avengers' Too!

In today's installment of Hugh Jackman keepin' it real, the "Wolverine" star thinks it's high time the current big three among superhero studios — that'd be Warner Bros., Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox — pass around some kinda olive branch and make nice so that he can play with Iron Man and Spider-Man and all the other cool kids, too!

Yup, in a new sit-down with Collider to promote his latest turn as the adamantium-filled fighter, hitting theaters on July 26, Jackman laments all the mine-mine-mine stuff going down between the three comic-to-movie heavyweight champs of the industry right now ... especially since it means he can't flex his "X-Men" claws alongside the likes of "Iron Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man."

'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 »

9 Blockbusters Recast With Old School Action Figures

Admit it — when you watch the various Hollywood blockbusters that turn some of your favorite childhood toys into a big-screen extravaganzas, this is what you're picturing in your head.

You no doubt remember the action figure poster we conjured for "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" earlier this spring. Reworking the latest cinematic Yo Joe adventure as a showcase for our old toy collection made it the first movie with swivel-arm battle grip. Now, we're taking that several steps further and reimagining several Hollywood action tentpoles trading the flesh-and-blood actors for plastic.

The 20 Most Phallic Movie Images Ever

Penis imagery: Like love, it's all around us.

Really, though, in movies, it's everywhere. And most likely, depending on the director, it's completely intentional. Yes, most of the directors you casually enjoy are actually perverted creep shows. Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.

Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."

Peter Likes Juicy Pork in Bad Lip Reading of 'Spider-Man'

"I made no friends buying a spork."

Look, we dig "The Amazing Spider-Man" and all, but some of the scenes between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) tended to be a little ... well, awkward. Garfield's constant twitching in discomfort and/or sexual excitement (or something) makes for some truly fingernails-on-the-chalkboard acting tics, while Stone's doe-eyed gazing in longing and/or sadness gets to be a bit much.

Leave it to the Internet court jesters at Bad Lip Reading to make those handful of moments a lot more tolerable ... and entertaining. Enjoy the nonsensical and hilarious courtship between a fledgling superhero and the girl who's on his desktop wallpaper above, and let's hope their chemistry in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will be a little ... calmer.

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 »
