Whoa. This is also after Sony stated they will have a spin-off film featuring a female villain sometime in 2017. This comes after the switch of having ASM3 in 2016 replaced by the Sinister Six film. Good grief. Sony is as bad as DC! They need to get their act together before this franchise runs off the rails completely. It's getting convoluted and messy. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to see Toby Maguire's name bandied about. Maybe he wants back in in the role. Garfield is also reported to be in on a profit sharing deal with the studio.
The Daily Star is claiming Columbia Pictures is saying now that Garfield is set to reprise his role in this 2015 film. What is this? Could it be a cameo in some other spin off Spider-Man film? No one knows at this point. If there are four more films total, then they are going the Avengers' film route yet again by tying up their star for a bigger contract over multiple films outside the main series. Each main member of the Avengers' team signed nine picture deals. Of course, that happened right at the beginning since Marvel knows what they are doing and had a solid long term plan. Sony seems to be making it up as they go. Take all this with the proverbial grain of salt considering the source.
Is this is a good thing or bad thing for the franchise? Do we want more Garfield or another reboot? Sound off below.
