    I think at least 5, and then make another reboot.

    Trilogy. If done right, you can tell a very creative and in depth story in three movies. If you go over that, you better create a universe like Star Wars, or you'll just be grasping at straws and getting ridiculous.

    Even Star Wars was a special circumstance because it had prequels. You can't do prequels with Spider-Man (nothing good at least) and you can't expand too far forward. Would Star Wars have been as good if you kept going forward with Luke? Doubt it. (Still would've been better than Phantom Menace, but that's a totally different story)

    I can't seem to think of any right off the top of my head, but tell me any series that went past three movies, one continuous story arc, that you consider successful. There might be some I'm missing, but I can't think of anything right off.

    Bottom line... three Spider-Man movies is the right number.

    I think it should be ongoing without a reboot...but have trilogy story arcs. For example, the Oscorp arc will be three films, but they can keep going with the character and established universe, only to make another three-film story arc.

    It's possible it won't be his trilogy for much longer. Let's see how that plays out first.

    I agree. Too early to speculate.

    I'd say a trilogy. I think it is enough to show his vision.
    Then let another director show how he views Spidey's world, too.

    Since trilogies are very popular I'd say two trilogies for now. If Webb drops they shouldn't reboot this franchise, it has much potential to continue with a different director.

    No way it's reaching 5 movies.
    They'll probably reboot it again after second or third movie.

    I like two trilogies. I doubt it'd happen though.

    The question wasn't how long it "will be"; but, simply, how long it "should be". I honestly say 5...especially it Vanderbilt does it the way he wanted to do, what was suppose to be Spider-Man 4 & 5.

    Until they dont think they can make it good.

    Or Until Garfield decides he doesn't want to do it any more.

    They really should plan the stories in trilogies and go from there.

    3-6

    2 Trilogies would be my option.

    I think this series should be a trilogy, maybe four films at most. The thing is, with Spider-Man, the amount of stories you could tell are incredible. I think that maybe they should resolve the parents storyline in this trilogy, and maybe afterwards make a "loose sequel" that leaves us with Peter Parker as Spider-Man, and make a new trilogy.

    Yeah i thought the same, if they make the first trilogy about Peter and his parents with Green Goblin as the main villain, the 2nd trilogy could be setting up the sinister six with Dock Ock comanding them

    Three movies as a three-act structure for the new series. Marc Webb would probably want to do more movies in his career, and Andrew Garfield isn't getting any younger. Five and six is really pushing it.

    Here's my idea

    1st Trilogy
    TASM 1: Lizard
    TASM 2: Mysterio/ Kraven
    TASM 3: Green Goblin

    2nd Trilogy
    TASM 4: Vulture/ Sandman
    TASM 5: Electro (Dock Ock's accident may happen here)
    TASM 6: Dock Ock sets up the Sinister Six with the original members, maybe he could even set up the team during the end of TASM 5, because of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 i think the step forward to make Dock Ock even more dangerous is if he assembles a team of foes that Spider-Man previously defeated, and since they already had their oun movie appearances they don't need to have as much screen time as the doctor himself.

    They could prove to be dangerous to Peter's family but this time, unlike when he fails to save Gwen from Green Goblin in TASM 3, he's able to save Mary Jane and his family. Or they could find another conflict besides his family of course, since Mary Jane being kidnaped was already overused in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.

    The thing with 6 films is, they can make the first trilogy and follow their plan for the story, after that they can choose to reboot or to go on with another trilogy.

    I understand your point but with regards to Garfield not getting any younger spider-man is Peter Parker not Peter Pan he CAN age.

    Plus they could use back 2 back shooting if needed.

    The other thing is i hate reboots unless nessasary.

    I feel the previous films lost the way and there was so much about them that I really didnt like so this reboot was need.

    Same as when Nolan rebooted Batman it was needed because well you all should no why.

    So as long as this series continues as it has started or improves I see no need for a reboot, just continue the story.

    Agree, I suggested 5 because of Vanderbilt(primary writer) suggested originally doing back-2-back films to save money and time with actors schedules.

    Actually it wasn't needed, the last Spider-Man films were still recent in people's memory and pop culture itself, the film while having many problems was very well directed and people liked the tone and action of Raimi's series, when it was released it was so badly received because it was a big let down after Spider-Man 2, it's like rebooting Star Wars some time after the end of Return of the Jedi.

    Batman was different, spider-man 3 wasn't nominated for any razzie, batman and robin has 11 nominations and won one of their awards for worst supporting actress. Not to mention that it got terrible word of mouth and didn't make much money. Spider-Man 3 on the other hand, while many didn't feel like it was as good as spider-man 2, aside from comic book fans received fairly good word of mouth and made a lot of money.

    The reason The Amazing Spider-Man didn't perform very well was because most didn't want it to reboot, while it was a very good first step for the new franchise, it still didn't achieve or ever will the iconic status of the first spider-man movie, maybe the sequel can change that of course, but i must say that TAS-M did some of the same mistakes of Raimi's Spider-Man films and didn't really improve upon them, one of the only exeptions was Spidey taking off his mask, he did that for a reason and i actually liked that scene.
