There has been no comic book movie that has had a "#4 movie" yet. Prequels don't count, spin-offs don't count, reboots don't count.
Why the hell wouldn't a prequel count as a sequel? Yes, chronologically, it comes *before* the previous movies, but it still creates an ongoing saga, just "in flashback," so to speak. "Star Wars: Episode One" came out after
Ep. Six, and yet nobody out there would rationally claim that there aren't six
movies in the Star Wars saga (....so far).
