Andrew Garfield May Not Return for Amazing Spider-Man 4

While talking to Yahoo! about how “epic and emotional” Amazing Spider-Man 2 is than the previous movie, Garfield mentioned that:

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” – Andrew Garfield, Yahoo!

While director Mark Webb said:

We did think about these movies from the very beginning as a series of movies…Really a trilogy to be totally frank.” -Mark Webb, Yahoo!

With Sony having already confirmed to be releasing a “The Amazing Spider-Man” 3 and 4, what does this mean for the franchise? Will Pete be recast a few years down the road or something else?

In my opinion, I could very well see them going the “Ultimate” route (a series of comics Marvel did a few years back, re-imagining and updating many of their superheroes).

What I mean to say is: Could we be seeing Miles Morales in the near future?

For those of you who don’t know, in the Ultimate Spider-Man timeline Peter Parker is killed by pretty much every villain, having come to his front yard and beating the crap out of him. (Remember, this is in a completely different timeline and the Ultimate universe had no effect on the original comics, which are still ongoing.)

After the death of Peter Parker, Miles Morales (a 13-year-old half Black/half Hispanic boy who is also bitten by a genetically modified spider) takes up the mantle and becomes Spider-Man.

If they do go this route: 1. I don’t think many people would understand what in the world was going on, and 2. While the inclusion of an African-American into the world of superheroes is exciting, I really don’t want to see Spidey die.
