Production history[]

On March 15, 2014, Marc Webb told The Daily Beast in an interview that he won't be directing the fourth film but would be involved as a consultant for the film.[1] Later that month, Webb has talk to E! Online there's a possible on seeing Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman in a future film.[2] On April 16, 2014, Den of Geek reported that the Spider Slayers and Black Cat are line up for future films.[3] On February 2015, Sony Pictures & Marvel Studios signed a deal to reintroduce Spider-Man and integrate the character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thus The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and it's sequel were officially cancelled.


  • Marc Webb declined to return to direct the fourth film, stating he could stay on as a producer and creative consultant. Candidates for replacement directors included Andy Muschetti, Matthew Vaughn, Josh Trank, Edgar Wright, Peter Berg, Thor Freudenthal, Dan Trachtenberg, Travis Knight, and Matt Reeves, alongside J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Eli Roth, and Scott Cooper. Roth, Trank, and Cooper were all in favor of a darker tone and pushing the rating from PG-13 to R. Reeves would too push for a darker tone, albeit keeping the rating PG-13. Cooper instead would get to direct and co-write Venom v. Carnage.
  • Various screenwriters were considered, namely Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers (who'd go on to write all three solo Spider-Man MCU films), Seth Grahame-Smith, Max Borenstein, Michael Green, David Leslie-Johnson McGoldrick, Phil Lord & Chris Miller, Matt Lieberman, and the Spierig Bros. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci agreed to provide creative input, but declined to return to write it. Sony then contacted James Vanderbilt, who'd wrote the first film (alongside Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves, although he wrote the story alone) to see if he'd liked to return, which he accepted. He was joined by newcomers Juliana Bard and Lana Baumer, with rewrites by Matt Reeves.
  • Christopher Drake would have scored the fourth film, joined by synthwave artist Fury Weekend, replacing Hans Zimmer who scored the second and third films. Zimmer had also previously worked with five other composers who were apprentices of his for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, dubbed the Magnificent Six.
  • It was said Peter would revert to his first costume from the first film in this one, or at least a variation of it. Matt Reeves stated his intention for the tone and palette of the fourth film to resemble that of the first film, to show Peter accepting a harder stance against crime-fighting, as he had with the Black Suit in the third film.
  • It's said Scorpion and Spider-Slayer would be the primary antagonists of the film with B.J. Novak reprising his role as Alistair Smythe and Rami Malek said to join as Max Gargan, with Vulture as a secondary villain. Carnage was also said to play some role in the film.
  • Venom and Black Cat were to play minor supporting roles to set up a sequel to Venom, which would take place after ASM4. Finn Wittrock and Felicity Jones would reprise their roles.
  • Dr. Connors appears for the first time in a major role since the first film, after having cameoed in ASM3 and The Sinister Six. Rhys Ifans would again reprise his role.
  • Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Marc Webb, and Andrew Garfield were all in favor of having Peter and Mary Jane either get married or at the very least deepen their relationship by this film.
  • DenofGeek interviewed Marc Webb on what he would like included in future films, to which he stated he'd like to see the original Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew, appear. Spider-Woman was considered to debut in this film, or at least out-of-costume or before transformation. Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale were frontrunners for the role.
