Andrew Garfield has revealed that he may hang up his suit after the third Spider-Man film.
The 30-year-old, who will return for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, confirmed he will reprise his Spider-Man role for a third film, but admitted his contract will come to an end after that.
"I mean I'm under contract for another one after this. As far as a fourth one? That's not anything to do with me," he told Yahoo! Movies UK.
"But yeah, I think what we're doing here is we've established the world. And now we get to really play inside that world, use our imaginations and expand."
"I'm really excited about this. I sat with [writers] Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman in a restaurant for lunch in New York, and they pitched me this movie. And I was crying. I welled up," he continued.
"I was really emotionally moved by what they said to me. And I think a lot of my emotion was because these two guys love the character just as much as I do.
"I think there was something missing in the first one because our focus wasn't on character as much we were trying to keep a number of plates spinning in the air - how can we reintroduce the character? How do we not upset this guy or this guy? That was a tough wasteland we had to move through. Now we could say, 'Who is this guy?' How can we best serve Spider-Man?'."
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be out in 2014, with the third instalment in 2016 and the fourth film in 2018.
