I do not agree with this. If they come out with a 4th and it does a Shrek 4, it will make less and take longer to reboot. Look how long it took to reboot Batman. Easier to reboot off less success than a bomb of failure. Something I think Darth touched on was for long term success, it is better to reboot.
I did not see Spiderman yet, but from the word of mouth this movie is not going to jump start the series the way Star Trek will.
