Reports suggest that actor Andrew Garfield maybe replaced in the next installment of Spiderman franchise. The leaked emails from Sony about the planned Spiderman and Captain America crossover doesn't include Garfield, Ace Showbiz said.

31-year-old Garfield's performance as the web slinger was praised by fans, but he may have upset the wrong person. His strong remarks that seemed to blame the studio for the box office failure of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was reportedly one of factors of him being fired from the franchise.

Moreover, his absence with less than an hour of notice at a Sony corporate dinner in July, in which he was supposed to meet Sony CEO Kaz Hirai and other Sony executives, "was seen as an affront and slight by the company's Tokyo bosses."

Latino Review confirmed the possibility of Garfield being replaced in the next Spider-Man movie, but noted that such thing would only happen if Marvel and Sony agreed to a deal to share the rights to Spider-Man at a 60/40 split. The deal itself could be jump-started if Sony Pictures continues to stumble in their handling of the Spider-Man franchise. Marvel also allegedly planned to shift the focus of the Spider-Man reboot to make it a Spider-Man romance movie.

Thus, new movies under this deal would begin with Peter Parker already leading a dual life.
