Amazing Spider-Man 3 Still On?


Following the disappointment of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the conversations between Sony and Marvel regarding Spidey’s rights, everyone pretty much thought that Sony’s Spider-Verse was over. Fans immediately began to ponder who could next play Peter Parker (although some pulled for Miles Morales). Today, however, it sounds like the Amazing Spider-Man 3 may still be happening.

There was a casting call that went out in Atlanta for extras in the Amazing Spider-Man 3. Among the listed stars for the movie were Andrew Garfield and Dane Dehaan.

It’s possible this is fake, but if it’s not, it has some interesting implications for the future of Spider-Man. Originally, there was supposed to be a Sinister Six movie AND a venom movie before the next Amazing Spider-Man movie. This could mean that Sony is leaning towards simply finishing off the series quickly with a third movie and then conceding.


One of my readers, Swanpride, has been pulling for this result from the beginning of the Spider-Man controversy. I think she represents a fair portion of the fans who may want to see a finale to the story.

I am at least encouraged that Sony seems to recognize that there is a problem. It’s hard to argue with the numbers. We will see if they decide to shorten their Spider-Verse and then relent with the property or if they will keep pushing through. Naturally, if this casting call is fraudulent, then this is all null and void. For now, only time will tell.

    Every day the world is increasingly becoming a more terrifying place to live in. Most city streets are flooded with crime. Injustice is the rule of the day. Millions are afraid to go out of their homes after dark as a result of the violent crime wave sweeping from one city to another. The horizon seems full of possibilities for evildoers. They can be seen everywhere walking with their heads held high confident about the future. Everywhere that is except for in Atro City. In Atro City the scumbags have been put on notice. There, criminals know that crime doesn’t pay. They realize that if they break the law they will have Metaphysical Man to answer to. Now as far as superheroes go Metaphysical Man is no less capable than any other. It’s been said that he can move at lightning speed and that he can lift three thousand times his own weight. He’s been rumored to level mountains by emitting laser beams from his eyes. Metaphysical Man has been around fighting crime for as long as anyone in Atro City can remember. No one knows where he came from or how old he is because he never seems to age. Though historians have traced back his history some six thousand years, Metaphysical Man’s origins remain a mystery. In any case the citizens of Atro City don’t seem to be too worried about these details. They’re just happy he’s there. ​
