Not to mention that between the 2 origin movies they've pretty much covered everything that needed to be covered. Now people won't be confused by webshooters instead of organics, or Gwen coming before MJ. TASM actually had gaps it was able to fill in for the uninitiated. Now there's nothing left that wasn't touched upon with regard to the origin. I seriously doubt we'll ever see another Spidey origin movie again. Maybe if they do reboot again they might do a during the credits TIH-style thing but that's about it.
