We thought we had Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man trilogy all figured out. Without giving too much away, I’ll just say that the introduction of certain new characters hinted at certain plot points to come, and it became possible to guess how the overarching plotline might play out through 2016.
Then Sony announced plans for a fourth Amazing Spider-Man coming in 2014, and suddenly it became less clear what would fit where. It also raised the question of just how the studio planned to keep the story fresh for four (or possibly even more) installments. There’s a reason trilogies are more common than quadrilogies, after all. It’s just tough to sustain interest in a single character for that long.
Now Webb has hinted at one possible way to keep the franchise moving: By making it “not just a Spider-Man movie,” and instead shifting the focus to some other characters. Hit the jump to read the comments.
