    I think really we have to be truthful in as much as Spider-Man's film career has been disasterous.

    The Raimi films ended on a downer, the "Amazing" films are now kaput. And yet again Spider-Man is coming back in yet another different format.

I have concerns about both sets of previous movies but your concerns are pretty much "they ended". Which is the nature of a cyclical franchise. Spider-Man isn't even the only comic book movie to have done this, and is certainly one of dozen (if not hundreds or thousands) of fictional franchises across all types of media that have rebooted themselves for one reason or another.

Let's also be honest in that when you have a success series of films, the same actors keep coming back (And a lot of the same crew and writers, etc...) will be asking for more money each time. They know that in sequels they are a proven commodity and their time is worth more. So even if the storytelling isn't over, third and fourth films tend to be the end stages just because people start either demanding too much money (from the studios POV) or the actors and crew just want to do something different.
