Should Marvel make a Spider-Man 4 or The Amazing Spider-Man 3? | The Comparison

Superhero fatigue might be real, but it’s unlikely that anyone would ever say no to a new Spider-Man film. The recent animation phenomenon Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was proof that the world will never get tired of any number of web-slinging heroes. When it comes to live-action superhero films, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy with Tobey Maguire and Marc Webb’s two Amazing Spider-Man films with Andrew Garfield will hold a special place in fans’ hearts. 

Despite coming out in different decades, social media users have been actively arguing whether Marvel should make a Spider-Man 4 or The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Let’s take a look at the arguments in favor of both films and understand the comparison in detail. 

Spider-Man 4 vs The Amazing Spider-Man 3 

Social media users can never give rest to the age-old debate of which live-action Spider-Man movie or actor is the best. While most preferences rely on which generation each individual fan belongs to, the arguments can sometimes get out of hand. 

The recent buzz around a potential Spider-Man 4 or The Amazing Spider-Man 3 might have started following some polls or online forums. The release of the polarizing fan film Spider-Man: Lotus may have also led to this ongoing discussion. 

The crux of the debate is over which live-action Spider-Man deserves to get another installment if only one were to earn it. Notably, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy ended in 2007, while Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man films journey was cut short in 2014. 

Reviving Tobey Maguire’s trilogy

Let’s face it. Spider-Man would not be enjoying the same amount of global fame if it wasn’t for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films in the 2000s. In fact, most millennials and Gen-Z still consider Tobey Maguire to be the one true Peter Parker, AKA Spider-Man. 

His return to the screen with Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home shook the worldwide box office, grossing over $1.9 billion. A standalone Spider-Man 4 featuring the return of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Willem Dafoe would still break the internet.

Fans hope that Tobey Maguire will return to play an age-appropriate mature Spider-Man, preferably directed by Sam Raimi and set after the events of No Way Home. Imagine a seasoned Peter Parker acting as a father figure to a young Spider-Girl. 

The support for Andrew Garfield’s threequel

While not as groundbreaking as Raimi’s trilogy, The Amazing Spider-Man was a breath of fresh air with how it portrayed the friendly neighborhood hero. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s on-screen chemistry (while dating IRL) became pop culture history.

With Tobey Maguire getting three films and Tom Holland getting more than six appearances, fans believe that it’s unfair to Andrew Garfield that he has to stop at just two films. His recent glimpse on Across The Spider-Verse went viral.

In most online polls on social media platforms, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 seems to have the upper hand over Spider-Man 4, as even Tobey Maguire’s fans side with the threequel. The main reason is that it’s still recent enough to continue without changing the story or recasting actors.

Which one do you think Marvel and Sony should make: Spider-Man 4 or The Amazing Spider-Man 3?
