So apparently Spider-Man 4 may not focus on Spider-Man.

Maybe it'll be about a clone

Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion

There are a number of potential spinoff characters in the Spidey mythos. I suppose the obvious one is Venom (ugh), but there are also the Black Cat, various versions of Spider-Woman and Spider-Girl, Scarlet Spider, Madame Web, Silver Sable, Prowler, etc.

How about a movie centering on J. Jonah Jameson and the Daily Bugle staff? Lou Grant in the Marvel Universe, as the reporters deal with stories and crises involving superheroes and villains. You've got a huge cast to work with -- Jonah, Robbie Robertson, Ben Urich (assuming he's not part of the Daredevil rights package), Betty Brant, Ned Leeds, Glory Grant, Norah Winters, and so on.

Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion

A Spider-Woman movie would definitely be cool, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Of course no matter what the director says, it's almost certain the studio will insist on it being another Spidey-centric movie anyway, so it's probably not even worth speculating.

Or maybe they'll adapt Superior-Spider Man into a movie. That way it would still be about Spidey, but it wouldn't be.

Or maybe an Ultimate Spider-Man with Miles Morales. Obviously they'd have to retool the origin a bit to place him in the same universe, but it wouldn't be that hard to do. It would be a perfect way to keep the same Spidey action, but with a completely fresh and unique character.

Plus he's got a really cool-ass costume.

Indeed not. In fact, I've had a thought about that:

No keep that crap out of the only decent non Ultimate Spider-Man (comics not the mediocre cartoon) stuff out there.

Besides it sounds like Webb is planning on setting up a spinoff series not replacing spidey with a new guy.

Sounds to me like they don't have Andrew Garfield signed for a fourth movie yet, and they're hedging their bets. This could even be part of a negotiating tactic to show they're willing to go on without Andrew if he asks for too much money.

I would imagine that Andrew has to be either very naive or delusional if he doesn't already know that he's not indispensable to the franchise. They've already done one trilogy with another actor and its well known that Toby was almost replaced by Jake Gylenhall for the second movie, when he tried to play hardball. Anyway, Andrew, like Toby, will be well into his 30s by the time of any 4th movie and the series will probably be due an infusion of new blood anyway.
