Spiderman Movie Prequel?

I've read from several places that the next Spiderman film is going to have a new director, a new cast and will be a prequel.

Can someone explain to me how a prequel would work? We find out how he becomes Spiderman in the first film. If there was to be a prequel about Peter Parker in his High School years, wouldn't Spiderman play no actual part in the film?

    Its not really a "prequel" exactly. Its more like a reboot, but you are right, it will focus more on Peter Parker's teen years and his struggles in high school. He will still be Spiderman in the films. These new films (supposed a new trilogy) are not really connected to the previous 3 films directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire.

    The new director is Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) but no cast has been announced yet. The films are supposedly more based upon “this past decade’s Ultimate Spider-Man comics by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley where the villain-fighting took a back seat to the high school angst”.

    your yahoo based protest has worked! they are no longer calling it spiderman 4. and neither is it a prequel. Re-boot, re-imagining, call it what you will, they're commencing afresh as though the different movies had in no way existed.
