Future

Although Spider-Man 3 received mixed reviews from critics, fans demanded to have a 4th installment to the Spider-Man film-series. While working on the project, Sam expressed interest in featuring the Lizard as the main villain (a gimmick that was coincidentally used in The Amazing Spider-Man). Other character-casting rumors included the Vulture and Black Cat.

Cancellation

In January 2010, Sony Pictures announced that Spider-Man 4 had been cancelled due to Sam's withdrawal from the project. Sam reportedly quit the project because he doubted that he could meet the given deadlines. Sony thought ahead, and wrote a reboot script that ended up being called "The Amazing Spider-Man" released in 2012, directed by Marc Webb.
