There is some tough news for "Spiderman" actor Andrew Garfield as a result of the Sony hack.

Leaked emails revealed that Marvel was planning another reboot of the "Spiderman" franchise, potentially without Garfield as the super-lead.

The email revealed that Marvel and Sony were in talks to split the production costs 60-40 in the comic-book company's favor for the Spidey franchise.

Marvel's plans to scrap Garfield as the lead is reportedly due to "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" grossing $709 million worldwide - the lowest of any Spiderman title.
