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."

Andrew, who will join returning co-star Emma Stone alongside newcomer Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan for the sequel, admitted going back to the role was very emotional.

"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.
