Spider Man Slowing Down?

The Amazing Spider Man 2 just crossed the $200 million domestic threshold and when you combine that with the $500 million it has made internationally its kind of a let down for Sony pictures? Apparently Sony was expecting the film to gross somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 billion worldwide and have slowed down plans for the two sequels and two spinoffs. Roberto Orci who was scheduled to write Amazing Spider Man 3 has left the project to direct Star Trek 3 commented on the current state of Spider Man:

from IGN
I’m not officially involved in [The Amazing Spider-Man 3]. I don’t know what their plans are for that franchise. I don’t ever want to say never, but we have to figure out what their scheduling is in terms of when they want each movie. I’ve read probably as much as anyone else. There’s a love for ‘The Sinister Six,’ the idea of ‘Venom’ — there’s an idea of Spider-Man’s going to be one of these characters that’s part of our business. He’s such a popular character. Spider-Man’s not going to go away any time soon. When it all happens and how and all that has yet to be determined. I don’t want to say anything about what they should do. I don’t want them to think I’m spilling the beans about something.
