  • The future of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise was widely reported to be incredibly confusing following this films release. In the build up of the film and indeed the few months after its release, it was confirmed that it would be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and a Sinister Six spin-off film, with Venom and an untitled female super heroine films as well as The Amazing Spider-Man 4 also confirmed to be in the works. However, in August Sony announced that The Sinister Six would take the place of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and that the third in the trilogy would be pushed back to an unspecified date in 2018. Then, during a hack into Sony's email, it was revealed with much media coverage that Sony had approached Marvel Studios with a deal to share the rights of the franchise of which Marvel refused. During this period of time, it was also revealed that Sony wished to fire Andrew Garfield due to his speaking out of the production studio and refusal to meet them for company events. After a lengthy silence, Sony and Marvel revealed on 9 February 2015 they would work together to produce a new Spider-Man series (set in the "Marvel Cinematic Universe") and that The Amazing Spider-Man franchise was canceled.
