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. Later that month, Webb has talk to E! Online there's a possible on seeing Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman in a future film. On April 16, 2014, Den of Geek reported that the Spider Slayers and Black Cat are line up for future films. 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- It was said Peter would revert to his first costume from the first film in this one.
- 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.
- 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.
