Is "The Amazing Spider-man 4" Not A Spider-man Film?

Crave Online got the following out of director Marc Webb:
You know, that was my next question. Tell me the entire plot. (talking about TAS2)
Okay. Peter Parker falls in love with a potato chip.
Go on.
And the potato chip is accidentally put into a FedEx box and sent across the ocean. Spider-Man can't fly over water. He doesn't like water very much. The suit tends to drag him down. So, he's gotta figure out a way to get across the ocean, to get his potato chip that he's in love with.
Did you write this one yourself?
I did… Well, me and Francis Ford Coppola.
There you go. In that case, you can do no wrong. We always expect a trilogy from movies now. It's a little arbitrary but what are you gonna do, and yet, you announce that 2 is coming out, and then the release date for 3 and then a little later you said, "Oh yeah, and we're doing 4."
Well, I think this was conceived of as a trilogy so there was a defined architecture to the story we were telling and we had sort of a rough outline of what was going to happen. I think [for] the fourth movie, what we've discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie.
