Back in 2010 Sony announced they were making a reboot to their beloved Spider-Man franchise, meaning Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi were out of the spotlight. Not soon after, Sony announced a new cast and crew to hone TASM franchise.

The new Spider-Man movies did pretty good, even though some people didn't like Andrew Garfield as Spidey. But after TASM2, things went downhill. Sony was expecting the movie to make at least $800 Million, while TASM2 made about $700 million. My only question for Sony is how they didn't make more money from video game and DVD sales for TASM2. While there is a new Spider-Man reboot coming, I personally don't think it should happen. Here are the reasons a Spider-Man reboot isn't a good idea.

1. Continuity

Well...
Well...

Spider-Man has had his own TV Series and has been on the big screen for 13 years now. Twice we've seen him go back to high school, twice we've seen him take on Green Goblin. I think people get sick of Peter Parker going back to high school and fighting the same super villains.

2. The Love Story

All the Spider-Man movies we've seen have focused more on Peter's love life, rather than his own personal problems. In my opinion, the original trilogy had terrible chemistry between Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. It seems like Peter was always chasing MJ, and he was always saving MJ from the big bad guy. It got annoying real quick. But the chemistry between Stone and Garfield was amazing. Pun intended. Let's also point out that Andrew's Peter wasn't always following Gwen like a puppy dog.

3. Diversity

Another problem is diversity. A lot of people are aware of the Spider-Verse and would love to see different versions of Spider-Man on screen, besides Peter Parker. Some of my personal favorites are Spider Man Noir, Spider-Man 2099, The Scarlet Spider and Spider-Gwen (Spider-Woman.)

In conclusion, I believe that the best options for Sony was to bring back Andrew Garfield for the MCU, or to have left the character alone and let Marvel finish the ASM series.

Should there still be a Spider-Man reboot?
