Why It Was Cancelled

  1. Plans for an Amazing Spider-Man cinematic universe, as well as this sequel were cancelled due to the controversial Sony Hack of 2014.
  2. Sony hit the reset button and rebooted the series once again with Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
  3. Andrew Garfield was now too old to play Spider-Man. He said he felt lucky to just be a fan again and in a 2020 interview stated he is thrilled not to continue running in the role in the cancelled installments.
  4. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received a rather negatively mixed reception from critics and fans.


  • The film and its planned universe were permanently cancelled.
  • Marvel hit the "Reset" button again with his appearance in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home as well as his mentioning in Ant-Man. A 2021 installment Spider-Man: No Way Home will also see Jamie Foxx reprise his role as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
  • Sony launched a new cinematic universe based on the Spider-Man property, which started in 2018 with the release of Venom. A sequel Venom: Let There be Carnage released in 2021, a Morbius movie in 2022 and Kraven the Hunter in 2023 and Venom 3 in 2023. A bunch of other projects are also in development.

Garfield's performance caused fans to campaign for a sequel starring him to be made.
