‘Spider-Man’ Producers: Peter Parker is the Only Spidey We’ll See in Movies

amazing spider man 2 andrew garfield Spider Man Producers: Peter Parker is the Only Spidey Well See in Movies

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the second film in the rebooted Spider-Man trilogy, hits theaters this week, and a third and supposedly last film starring Andrew Garfield as the webslinger is scheduled for 2016. The franchise is nowhere near done with Sony already planning Venom and Sinister Six spin-offs to flesh it out some more, yet audiences are already wondering who will be the next to don the Spidey costume.

Garfield, for what it’s worth, recently suggested passing the torch from Peter Parker to Miles Morales – the current iteration of Ultimate Spider-Man in the comics. The idea is definitely an interesting one since Morales, as a 13-year-old Black Hispanic kid, was met with much applause for making Spider-Man a racially diverse character.

But it seems from an interview with The Playlist that producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach have other plans about where the franchise will go, and sadly it doesn’t involve passing the torch to anyone while they’re still in charge. When asked if another Spider-Man will take Peter Parker’s place, Arad answered:

No. The one thing you cannot do, when you have a phenomena that has stood the test of time, you have to be true to the real character inside – who is Peter Parker? What are the biggest effects on his life? Then you can draw in time, and you can consider today’s world in many ways. But to have multiple ones… I don’t know if you remember, but Marvel tried it. And it was almost the end of Spider-Man.

While the original Spider-Man trilogy had its own share of problems, and the new trilogy has attempted to better them, those issues began and ended with the story itself. A new trilogy with a new Spider-Man would have the benefit of starting over, without simply rebooting the franchise yet again somewhere down the line. In other words, there is only so many times you can watch the same premise.

Arad is right, however, that being true to a character is very important. This is why telling Peter Parker’s story is more important than him simply being Spider-Man, and why the story of another Spider-Man, whether it be Miles Morales, Ben Reilly (clone Spider-Man) or Miguel O’Hara, could be just as important. After all, Spider-Man is not just a superhero, he’s also a ‘man’ underneath the costume.

What do you think Screen Rant readers? Should Peter Parker be the end to Spider-Man or would you want to see another character wear the suit?

  1. Somehow, I’m relieved and disappointed at the same time by this.

  2. missed opportunity then… other spidermen/woman would be great. imagine kaine in the movies… a antihero spiderman. sounds awsome

    • Disagreee Corey, if you look at the Spidey comic books sales that featured Miles Morales is very,very LOW compared to the Spidey comic books sales that featured Peter Parker.
      Numbers don’t lie. You can do your own research if you have time.

      • The numbers are the highest in the ultimate line. Bendis put great writing into Miles Morales’ Spiderman. He’s a very interesting character to follow. The reason the numbers pale in comparison to the amazing spiderman is because it’s not 616 based. For whatever reason comic fans, myself included, are less likely to read about alternate versions of their favorite characters.

      • Comic book sales are down PERIOD. It’s not about the character change, it’s about the lack of interest from the new generation of fans!

        • Comics sales are not down. They are actually up. What they dont report on is the digital sales. But from what has been published, digital sales have skyrocketed while printed issue have kept steady since their initial drop after the 90s boom.

    • There is no way they’ll ever bring the clone saga to the movies. That is such a black mark on the whole comics story for spiderman that they would have to be so desperate to wanna re try that. They have so many rich story lines to pull from that this would be a huge mistake

  3. I’m very happy that they aren’t doing a Miles Morales version. I hated that version with a passion. Peter Parker is the only Spider-Man.

    • those comics were amazing… the art was perfect and the story and characters were brilliant. i have no idea why people disliked it… they probably saw what you saw, another character as spiderman and never gave it a chance… sad really

      • Its sad that Peter Parker in the movies is already being kicked out by fans for another spiderman….The story of Peter Parker is not yet done and already people are talking about a replacement. I dont care how awsome Miles Morales is but its too soon to be thinking about a new spiderman, way too soon. Yes it is the fifth time that there is a Spiderman movie if you count the original trilogy but i believe the original doesnt count anymore because this is a reboot. I still want Mary Jane, Sinister Six and Venom (Carnage not so much).

        • so people suddenly care about this reboot??? all i see is hate for spiderman now. and he doesnt need to be replaced just having a partner like a lot of comic movies would add more characters and build a team. cap had 2 main characters and the falcon so spiderman could have the same.

          • “all i see is hate”

            I don’t know where you are looking. Fans being critical isn’t hate and that is the majority of what goes on here. Whre is the hate you speak of? Do you have a link?

            • any spiderman 2 article…

              • I have not seen this hate you mention either. I follow almost everything Spider-Man related (huuuugggeee fan!) and i have not seen this hate. Bat-Mite is right. I have seen extreme criticism but nothing more.

                Most of the fans that i know also have seen A.Spider-Man 2 and LOVED it. Look at user reviews. They are extremely high. Its the critic reviews that are putting it down the most.

                I am seeing it tonight and so far the reviews state things i find positive as a negative so i am sure to enjoy it as well.

          • It’s so unfortunate that some producers can be so close-minded, so territorial, and so unconcerned about the views of the fans. And I don’t just blame the producers but I blame the studios as well.

            For example, the studios are obviously of the opinion that, no matter how much the fans like a certain actor playing a certain part, they (the studios) can replace that actor and the fans won’t care. Many fans really liked the 1st two Spiderman movies with Tobey Maguire and thought that the producers, the director, and the actors had done a great job with those 2 movies. Granted that the 3rd Spiderman movie with Tobey Maguire was not as good as the 1st two. I think that this is because they needed a better story and instead of having 3 villains they should have given Spiderman a new sidekick like the Black Cat and just had one extremely dangerous villain. The Green Goblin would have been a sidekick for most of the movie, not a villain.

            My point is that there was really no reason to get rid of Tobey Maguire or the director, Sam Raimi (I think) after the 1st 3 Spiderman movies. They could have made Spiderman 4 & 5 with Tobey Maguire.

            In fact what they could have done is continued making Spiderman movies with Tobey Maguire as the University/ College/ working-age Spiderman and at the same time started to produce movies with a highschool aged spiderman. The highschool aged spiderman could be played by Andrew Garfield.

            I am aware that there are many fans out there who prefer the new “Amazing Spiderman” movies with Andrew Garfield to the slightly older Spiderman movies with Tobey Maguire. And I do admit that the new director Mr. Web (I think), seems to have impressed audiences with his first “Amazing Spiderman” movie. And I do expect that his 2nd “Amazing Spiderman” movie will be even better.

            But this is my point… movie producers show little concern, awareness, or respect for the fact that audiences like to see the same actors in the same roles especially when the actors are doing a good job.

            I think that there was a missed opportunity here. Sony could have had not one successful Spiderman franchise but two.

            The attitude of the producers regarding the idea of Spiderman being in a cross-over movie with other superheroes, seems very territorial and non-cooperative.

          • Miles Morales could be different than he is in the comic books. He could be Spiderman’s sidekick rather that a replacement for a dead Peter Parker.
            And he could be just few years younger than Peter Parker.
            Having a Black Puerto Rican sidekick with super powers could be really interesting for audiences.
            Consider that: (1) Ironman has War Machine as his sidekick; and Captain America has the Falcon as his sidekick.

            I think that this idea is worth considering by the producers.

        • I don’t think people are trying to kick Garfield out, I think the point is: Are they just going to reboot this over and over again?
          Spider-Man has a ton of history and it goes in so many different directions. But I’m talking about Spider-Man, not necessarily Peter Parker. Especially since Garfield can’t do this forever and they are putting so much effort into building an entire universe, a new Spider-Man shouldn’t be out of the cards. In 8 years Andrew Garfield might lose interest in the franchise or his boyish looks. Then what? Reboot the entire universe? Venom just made so and so million but without a Spider-Man in the universe everyone else is kind of just… wandering around… so let’s reboot it and rewatch Uncle Ben die for the third time.
          I don’t mind a new Spider-Man, just not anytime soon. To just reboot it after 4 or so movies is lazy and a disservice to the fans.
          I’d like to see Ben Reilly before I see Morales though. Just saying

          • Re-casting could work.

            If they do re-boot after Garfield then I hope that they give it a few years before doing so. I would also like to see them cast a teenage/early 20s actor to play Peter in HS for two full movies. So much of PP/SM happens in HS. I think he is a Sophomore when he gets bit originally.

            But, re-casting would allow for a continuation of the current Spideyverse. Tough call.

            • I’d hate to see another reboot, but like in any movie or franchise, it all depends on the execution so if they do it right then we’ll have to deal with it.
              HOWEVER, it is my opinion that there’s a larger chance for cash money if you continue the universe you’ve got.
              And if you’re really that scared, don’t kill Peter Parker, retire him or insert some plot device to get him out of the scene for awhile. Introduce Ben Riley and/or Miles and then if things head south… BAM, you could bring Peter back.
              And rent Spidey out to FOX or something, having Spidey in a FF film sounds like a win-win. Free exposure and publicity, PLUS no production costs for Sony, PLUS FOX pays you to use him PLUS negotiate some kind of dollar per min rate or some percentage of the total gross. 1% of a billion movie is still 10 million bucks and you didn’t have to do anything. Sounds like free money to me
              And a younger Spider-Man sounds legit to me.

              • I’m sorta with you on the Spidey crossover, but not until I see FF re-boot. If it is awful as I expect then no crossover. I’d rather see them expand the Spideyverse with Marvel Knights on Netflix. It would also give some new story lines to pursue and I have more faith in Marvel than Fox.

            • No no no no NO MORE HIGH SCHOOL PETER PARKER! Parker has been out of high school and college for over 30 years! He’s been married and is in no way a kid anymore. If there is a reboot I want them to focus on his adult years. I personally have had enough with “Teenage” Spider-Man. He has already been used up. There are way better stories from Parker as an adult than when he was a kid.

              Say NO to Spider-Teen and bring on Spider-MAN!

              • Kinda like Archie Andrews and company…how many decades have they been in high school? By now Jughead’s little crown hat has gotta be stuck on his cranium!

          • 8 years from now???really…i live in the here and now. talk about looking too far in to the future…..we’ll talk again when we get to that point….and who says they will reboot it again….this is all speculation from people who have nothing better to do with their time….this is how rumours get started….Garfield only stared in 2 spiderman films and already people are talking about a reboot….
            Silverjaguar is right….

            • Cant speak for everyone, but I am going off what garfield has said. #1 he is signed on for three films, that is it. Maybe it’ll change but for now that is it. #2 He would like to see Miles get a chance. Personally, I think it is too soon for Miles to get his own movie; but, who knows it could be perfect timing after ASM 3 and Sin Six.

            • 8 years seems like a long time but it’s not, and it’s probably closer to 5-6 years anyway. Batman Begins is 9 years old and Bale’s out of here. RDJ may be getting out of dodge soon. Chris Evans is already talking about giving up the shield in a few years.
              So in 5 years we’ll have third ASM, a Venom 1 & 2 and a Sinister Six 1 & 2 on the way or completed (if Sony is able to succeed, that is). Whether or not Garfield will want to continue or will still “fit” the role by that time is up in the air. Recasting will only be good for 2 movies tops because part of what makes Peter Parker PETER PARKER is growing up and becoming a man. He’s a “loser” in school, he’s bottom rung at the Daily Bugle, he’s second fiddle to Eddie (until he exposes him). Peter Parker’s whole schtick is being the young, novice underdog… that’s a scientific genius. So we probably won’t see a 30-something year old Peter Parker still being late for work and gosh darn it he didn’t close that deal and yada yada cause that’s gonna get old. They’ll need a new Spidey by then. PLUS they’ve used all the good villains in spin-offs already so you’ll have to reboot/rinse/repeat them too

      • MM, meh. But it is hard to relate to a kid at my age. Peter is who i grew up with, doubt I’m alone feeling that way. That said, have you been reading the new Ms. Marvel? That is new and really good.

    • I agree with Corey on this. Bendis’ writing and (I think) Sara Pichelli’s art on Miles’ whole saga was phenomenal. And it showed, the same with Batman, Wolverine, Captain America, anyone can be Spiderman.

  4. Oh Arad… even if you make a valid argument that Peter is the one true Spider-Man, how many times do we have to see Uncle Ben suffer? The only way Peter gets the values he has is because of that. Let someone else take the mantle once in a while. Can he just leave that franchise already?

    • It’s so unfortunate that some producers can be so close-minded, so territorial, and so unconcerned about the views of the fans. And I don’t just blame the producers but I blame the studios as well.

      For example, the studios are obviously of the opinion that, no matter how much the fans like a certain actor playing a certain part, they (the studios) can replace that actor and the fans won’t care.

      I think that there was a missed opportunity here. Sony could have had not one successful Spiderman franchise but two.

      The attitude of the producers regarding the idea of Spiderman being in a cross-over movie with other superheroes, seems very territorial and non-cooperative.

  5. Agree that it’s a missed opportunity. They could’ve venture into broader audience by incorporating diversity with that, and a chance to actually create a universe without the need to put the focus on the villains. I don’t like Arad, for real. It was partially his fault that Sam Raimi had to put Venom in Spiderman 3, and left Spiderman 4, thus triggering the ‘reboot’. Now with his statement, I fear that we’re going to have yet another ‘reboot’ after Garfield (and Webb) finished his contract and refuse to return. It’s all happening again and again….

  6. seems a bit shortsighted to be honest, and considering they seem to be so short on things that ‘effects peter parker’ that they had to resort to the tired trope of ‘destined for greatness through legacy passed down from parent’ I’ll go ahead and say that sony knows diddly squat about what makes spider-man good. and their tunnel vision for the franchise is probably gonna turn on them, once people get tired of them treading the same old water.

    might be just as well. I have little patients for people not ready to take chances with original concepts with one of the safest genres right now in the movie industry.

  7. No, I actually read them. I thought they were extremely average and that there was no point to them at all. We didn’t need a random storyline like that. Peter Parker had a story that was more relatable to me. Which in my opinion, made it a better story. I didn’t care for Miles at all.

  8. I doubt a third reboot would work. EVEN for SM, unless they give him some 10 or moar years of rest. Which they won’t. When the Battfleck alone movies “bomb” when they are compared to Nolan’s, maybe Arad will learn a lesson and change his mind.

  9. I said it before and I’ll say it again: Avi Arad is a tool. They’ll probably reboot it AGAIN and this time it’ll just be too much. I say they should just let the character revert back to Marvel so he can be included in the Avengers, but we all know that won’t happen. It’s also unfortunate he isn’t open to the Miles Morales idea. I mean, Peter Parker will always be the Spiderman I grew up with, but it would be a really cool story for them to explore where Peter hands over the mantle of Spiderman to Miles. I didn’t really like the writing in Miles Morales story, but that’s an easy fix. Arad is short sighted yet again.

    • You make some good points. Arad won’t be in charge forever. Miles is brand new in the comic world, expecting for him to have a movie so soon with no longterm fan base is what Arad is talking to. Sony isn’t going to spend the money developing MM yet. USM with MM established as the sole SM only sold 30k copies a month at most.

  10. I think this is a dumb comment on Arad’s part, but I think he is referring to the clone wars and Ben Reilly, which admittedly were pretty bad, rather than the original film trilogy or anything.

  11. Basically, Arad’s saying, after Garfield it’s gonna be recast or reboot.

  12. This guy egoistic Arad really thinks Spiderman is like the epitome of superheroes. Maybe in the comics, but not in the movies by a long shot. Even Whedon and Feige don’t go around claiming their films to be the holy grail of all things superhero and they have more right to do so.

  13. While I am a tiny bit bummed that we won’t see Miles any time soon I hope this means that Peter Parker will be in Amazing Spider-Man 4 and I also hope this means Garfield will be back for it as well I know plenty of people like him in the role and plenty of people don’t but I just think he’s excellent I have a theory that Amazing Spider-Man 4 will be a showdow between spidey and Sinister 6 ultimately resulting in Spidey’s death in the end I don’t know if they would kill him though since the some of he audience will be kids that may not be comfortable seeing their hero die on screen but we’ll see what happens.

    • It could work or you know Pete has a family and goes into retirement/hiding. Or the kill him after years of being a hero. Whatever.

  14. I hope they can get Andrew Garfield back for the fourth movie

    • Me to I really like Garfield in the role

  15. Such a typically Hollywood answer. “They tried something new. It didn’t work, so we’rwe gonna avoid change or innovation altogether”
    Ugh.

  16. Good, finally a smart decision. PP is and always was and always will be the only Spiderman in most people’s minds, including mine, and before anyone starts shakin’ their bacon at me, remember I was reading Spiderman when alot of you were in short-pants (60s and 70s), so give me some credit for experience (no it has not turned to senility yet). Just as most people do not remember who or why or how there were any other Flashes after Barry Allen, Green Lanterns after Hal Jordan, Supermen after Kal-El, Captain Americas after Steve Rogers, or Robins and other assorted sidekicks for Batman after Dick Grayson, (or Batmen after Bruce Wayne, for that matter) the subsequent ones in varying degrees were just not that relevant, memorable, pertinent, important, or needed. Can’t these writers come up with a new hero to incorporate their ideas into? Then it might be welcomed. I do not care which ones you liked–that is up to you–but in any character that has multiple offshoots, there is usually one that stands out and defines the role, and in this case it would be the long-term Spider-man, Peter Parker. One does not have to change a character’s gender, sexual orientation, social proclivity, ethnic background, politics, attitude or psychological make-up just to prove that as writers you can do it. All it does in many cases is muddy up the reputation of the original character or idea from which the offshoot was based.
    As for making the character younger and younger…well, that is just Diaper-man. Too young means not mature enough, experienced enough, tough enough to handle the problems of the big-picture world (like Super-villains).

    • AMEN

    • I like what you said. Lot of passion. I have to disagree about the age thing though. Garfield will retire from playing SM eventually. The studio has two options I can see: re-cast or re-boot. If it is re-boot then I hope they start with Peter when he is a Sophomore/Junior in HS. There are so many story lines with Pete in HS and just after HS. ASM 1 and 2 have jumped past all those years. It makes sense for these films for many reason, but if re-booted i say hire someone who is early 20s, not late 20s/early 30s(Garfield&McGuire)

      • I prefer a somewhat older super-hero, at least one old enough to vote and know what my vote meant. All I know was when I was about a freshman or sophmore in high school, I was getting my butt kicked by bullies and upper classmen. I probably was not ready for “prime-time” like Doc Ock, Lizard, and Sandman. By the time I was a senior in high school, however, I was tracking down the school bullies and hard guys who were beating up my nerdy friends, and clobbering the high school baddies like an avenging angel or knight on crusade to defend them and myself, turning the tables on the high school evil-doers (Me, Captain of the Chess team, a tough nut to crack in my own right…imagine that!). Still, even then I was not quite ready for “prime-time”, and if I were to see Green Goblin, Carnage, Venom, Mysterio, and Morbius hanging out on the street corner outside my school packing baseball bats and garbage-can lids, I would probably still look for another route home (unless I had my trusty web-shooters, then maybe I might give ‘em a go!).

      • High School Spider-Teen is a tired concept. When the heck will we actually see Spider-MAN?! We have seen Peter in high school in a couple movies already. People already know his origin. It’s time to make movies based off some of the best stories from Spectacular, Web of and McFarlane’s run of Spider-Man. Give Spider-Teen a rest.

  17. I haven’t liked Avi Arad’s comments when it comes to this new Spidey franchise.
    More or less says hell no to crossovers..well.. unless his boy gets top billing (doesn’t it benefit Spider-Man and your franchise to be in any movie… especially in one that he doesn’t have to star in?)
    Now he’s saying that there’s no need to look into the future of the universe Sony is going all in to create. He’s basically saying that within the decade or so they’re just going to destroy the world their Sinister Six and Venom spin offs have helped shape and start Spider-Man over…. again

    • It’s so unfortunate that some producers can be so close-minded, so territorial, and so unconcerned about the views of the fans. And I don’t just blame the producers but I blame the studios as well.

      The attitude of the producers regarding the idea of Spiderman being in a cross-over movie with other superheroes, seems very territorial and non-cooperative.

  18. A Shattered Dimension film adaptation is one way to have more than one Spider-Man in the same movie.

  19. these last couple of quotes from mr. arad kind of paints this picture of an extremely stubborn, short-sighted man who seems to have some sort of inflated view of spider-man. i guess it’s kind of the only thing he currently has on his plate though so i suppose i cant blame him.

  20. Best move. I’m glad.

  21. remember the good old days when an actor dropped out they just recast and kept going? With no talk of reboot.

  22. Y’all are idiots, we all know that Otto Octavius is the superior Spider-Man.

  23. First of all I don’t know why people are suddenly acting like Amazing Spider-man is so great, The first trilogy was waaaaaaaaaay better. Also I agree with a lot of the other people here, how many times are you going to start this thing over? I personally am not paying to see a 3rd version of the death of uncle ben. And Why not give Miles Morales a try? I’d rather see a new Miles morales spider-man flick, than to have the series re-booted yet again!

  24. Screw him. Don’t cast someone that is 27 during shooting so that re-casting is necessary so soon, then. Quit sucking, Sony.

  25. I don’t see why you can’t just recast Peter Parker. People seem to understand it in James Bond movies. I don’t think people were confused on who Mark Ruffalo was playing in the Avengers. Parker has such a huge story to tell and it’s a shame that they want to tell a small part of it and then reboot. They can still kill off Gwen and introduce MJ and let the characters age a little bit even with different actors.

  26. such a shame. Would have loved to see Alex Ross and Miles Morales even spider girl down the road… extremely disappointed..

  27. They’ll change their minds eventually. I think they’ve been burned once by the negative reaction to rebooting with “The Amazing Spider-Man”, so they’ll put off the next one for as long as possible, and that means recasting or replacing. If Andrew Garfield leaves too soon (like, if he doesn’t stick around for TASM 4) I bet they’ll just do a straight-up recast, but in the long-term (like when Peter is supposed to be in his mid-thirties or so, assuming the series lasts that long — and Sony definitely WANTS the series to last that long) I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they eventually killed off Peter Parker and brought in Miles Morales as the new protagonist.

  28. More Paker? I am all for it! Just recast the actors if Bond can make it Spiderman can do it as well.

  29. Famous last words before these producers smell more money and go nuts with whatever that’ll work to satiate their hunger yet again ? Sheesh – shut up already and just make more movies that entertain – not dumb unnecessary pledges.
