"It hurts, you're know. On the bad days, when you're out and about, everyone can just tell you're not in the groove. So they ask those required questions, right? "You alright? It's gonna be okay. It's not forever. It'll be be better, in time." But they don't account for the time it takes. I don't think you really understand it till it's already happened to you. It's like your heart got gouged. It's worse than a bullet. And the hurt fills you so utterly. You feel it in your blood. Feel it in your guts. Feel it just prickling and poking around in you. Makes it hard to breathe. Hard to eat. Hard to focus. Hard to live. Hard to attend your responsibilities. But you have to carry on. I have to. No matter how deep you're in it, you've gotta climb out of despair and keep on keeping on. For Uncle Ben. For Captain Stacy. For Aunt May. For Harry. For Gwen. So no matter what this city throws at me, no matter what's around the corner tomorrow, no matter how perilous the storm coming, I'll always wear this mask. I'll always use this power to protect those who need me. I'll always be Spider-Man. Not because I want to be. Because I have to be. Because I choose to be. Could you stand by that?"
"Always, Peter. If it means a life with you, then always and forever."
―Peter and Mary Jane


The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is a cancelled superhero film intended as the third installment for The Amazing Spider-Man film series. It was originally to be released in 2018, before Sony rebooted Spider-Man with Tom Holland. Tom Holland's version of Spider-Man was first introduced in 2016's Marvel Cinematic Universe film Captain America: Civil War. It was intended to be directed by Marc Webb and with a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and Lizzie Baumgartner (who goes uncredited), from a story by Kurtzman, Orci, Webb, Ehren Kruger, and Kurt Wimmer. It would've starred Andrew Garfield, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Finn Wittrock, Zachary Quinto, Aaron Taylor Johnson, J.K. Simmons, Keith David, Zooey Deschanel, Chris Cooper, and John Cena.

Six months since the death of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) continues to struggle through the grief of her loss, but finds solace from new friends Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) and Eddie Brock (Finn Wittrock), as well as a full-time job at The Daily Bugle under cantankerous newsman J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons). Meanwhile, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), his once best friend-now-hated foe, now plots vengeance from behind bars by enlisting the help of disgraced film technician Quentin Beck (Zachary Quinto) now a orb-domed "sorceror" dubbed Mysterio looking to replace him as New York's champion through force, Alexsei Sytsevich (Paul Giamatti) a rhino-armored thug seeking payback, and Sergei Kravinoff (Shane West), a familiar bounty hunter out for his blood. And while faced with these new villains from every side, Peter's worst enemy is the closest, in the form of an extraterrestrial symbiote that bonds to him, granting him a new black costume that bolsters his already amazing powers, but at the cost of feeding on his fragile emotional state and turning him vengeful and violent, putting his status as New York's friendly-neighborhood hero at risk.

Production history[]

In June 2013, Sony Pictures announced the release dates for the next two Spider-Man films. The third film was scheduled to be released on June 10, 2016, and the fourth to be released on May 4, 2018. Paul Giamatti confirmed that Rhino would return in the third film. That November, Sony Pictures Entertainment chief Michael Lynton told analysts: "We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works." Andrew Garfield stated that his contract was for three films, and was unsure of his involvement for the fourth film. In February 2014, Sony announced that Webb would return to direct the third Amazing Spider-Man film. In March, Webb stated that he would not be directing the fourth film, but would like to remain as a consultant for the series. Roberto Orci told IGN in July that he was not working on the third film due to his involvement in Star Trek Beyond. Alex Kurtzman stated in interview that the third film was still continuing production and that there was a possibility of seeing a Black Cat film. Sony Pictures later announced in July that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 had been delayed to 2018.

After the announcement in February 2015 of a new series with Marvel Studios, the sequels to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were canceled. In July 2015, Denis Leary, who had portrayed police Captain George Stacy in the previous two films, revealed that the film at one point had Spider-Man "take this formula and regenerate the people in his life that died." Webb, Roberto Orci, and James Vanderbilt later debunked these claims, with Webb expressing that even in his grief and fragile state of mind, that endeavor would be grossly out-of-character and rather ghoulish for Peter to do, adding that "Aside from being just flat out disrespectful and morbidly selfish, it would also undermine the lesson he learned the last time he played God, which allowed Connors to become The Lizard, and we all know how that turned out.". Webb however stated he had something similar in mind, with Norman Osborn and Gustav Fiers instead exhuming Gwen Stacy's corpse to bond her to the Venom Symbiote's recently newborn spawn, resurrecting an amnesiac Gwen as Carnage, who would go on to become the sixth member of the Sinister Six after (presumably) Harry Osborn and Felicia Hardy revolted.

Similar to the previous Spider-Man 3 as part of Sam Raimi's previous trilogy, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was confirmed to include the Venom Symbiote which would bond to Spider-Man to give him his iconic black costume, with intentions to have him separate from it However, unlike Raimi, who was notably reluctant to include Venom due to personal dislike of the character over what he perceived as a "lack of humanity" and only did so at the behest of Avi Arad, Webb was a big fan of Venom and eager to incorporate him into the Amazing Spider-Man saga, stating "With all due respect to Sam, I adore Venom and immediately had my hand up in a heartbeat when talk of including him popped up in meetings. While I wasn't all in on Gwen's death in the second one, I at the same time realized it was the ideal circumstance to introduce the symbiote to our version of Spidey. Peter's obviously in a dark place in his life following Gwen's death, and we had to gloss over that, against my own wishes might I add, at the end of Amazing 2 because Avi had all his hopes hinging on the Sinister Six movie they've been hellbent on getting on the conveyor belt and wanted to set that up on the double. Meanwhile, me, Alex, Roberto, and even James were all talking about how we wanted to tackle the Black Suit story, given that Sam and his crew did it so beautifully. The question was 'How do we top that? What do we do that Sam didn't?'. Because even though Tobey's Spidey had an arc based in vengeance on Sandman once he found out the truth about how Uncle Ben dies, I think the memes speak for themselves when you talk about the defining aspect of his time bonded to the symbiote. He turns into a douche. He becomes some oily and smug "too cool for school" poser that you can't take all that seriously. I wanted to do the complete opposite. This is Peter at his absolute lowest point. He's thoroughly depressed, he's unbelievably pissed, and since the symbiote is attracted to such powerful emotions, that's obviously what draws him to it. Peter needs a rock. And while Shaliene as Mary Jane was supposed to be one half of that, Gwen's death is still incredibly fresh and raw in his mind. And the black suit, as we all know, makes him stronger by preying on that. He's got some serious shit on his plate he needs off, and this new suit, that he doesn't exactly appreciate is this living thing, this alien with it's own aims and needs, he just knows he's angry and wants to let that all out and hard. I want this to be when people start being afraid of Spider-Man. He starts stopping crimes by breaking bones and drawing blood. He's starting to patrol exclusively at night where he blends in, and he's bordering on bloodthirsty. I wanted to revisit the grimmer tone we went for in the first movie. Cuz we see what happens when Peter's in a bad place, he gets sorta scary. Predatory. Just a wee bit sadistic. And with the symbiote nudging him in all the wrong directions, we see what that's like tenfold. The end result'd be someone I wouldn't wanna fuck with."

In December 2013, Sony issued a press release through the viral site Electro Arrives announcing that two films were in development, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Ed Solomon writing a spin-off to The Amazing Spider-Man focused on Venom (with Ruben Fleischer to direct) and Drew Goddard writing one focused on the villain team Sinister Six. Hannah Minghella and Rachel O'Connor would oversee the development and production of these films for the studio. The Venom spinoff eventually became the 2018 film starring the character. In April 2014, it was announced that Goddard would direct the Sinister Six film, and that both spin-offs would be released before a fourth Amazing Spider-Man, with Spider-Man potentially appearing in both spin-offs. Later in the month, Tolmach and Arad revealed the Sinister Six film would be a redemption story, and that the film's lineup might differ from the comics. On July 23, 2014, Sony Pictures announced that The Sinister Six was scheduled for release on November 11, 2016. By August 2014, Sony was also looking to release a female-centered spin-off film in Unknown Year Release, with Lisa Joy writing, and had given the Venom spin-off the potential title of Venom: Carnage.

Despite the announcement in February 2015 of a new series with Marvel Studios, the Sinister Six, Venom, and female-led spin-off films set in the Amazing Spider-Man timeline were then "still moving forward". Feige was not expected to be creatively involved with these films. However, the Sinister Six film was canceled due to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 underperforming commercially, and by November 2015, the other prospective spin-off films were canceled as well. However, Sony has reworked these plans into creating a new film series based on Marvel characters associated with Spider-Man separate from both the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, starting with the release of the 2018 film Venom. These include spinoff films centering around the characters of Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, and Silver & Black, a female-centric team up of the Spider-Man anti-heroes Silver Sable and Black Cat. Jared Leto portrayed the title character Morbius in the spin-off film, directed by Daniel Espinosa and was released on April 1, 2022, to critical and commercial failure. The Kraven the Hunter film will be written by Richard Wenk, and has a set release date of October 6, 2023.

Following his appearance in No Way Home, some fans called for Sony to make a third Andrew Garfield Spider-Man film using the hashtag "#MakeTASM3" on Twitter. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Garfield expressed interest in reprising his role as his Peter Parker for another Spider-Man film. Tom Holland supported Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man in a potential Spider-Man film.

In June 16, 2023, Sony had announced two Spider-Man films with the release of November 2024 and June 2025. It is possible TASM3 might be one of them.[6]
