This is not really that much of a surprise with the coming Marvel NOW! relaunch.
As of this December, Marvel will be ending the Amazing Spider-Man with issue #700.
No further information is given about an Amazing Spider-Man relaunch, but a previous Marvel NOW! teaser featuring "Superior" - with more info forthcoming at the NYCC - was revealed last week.
In addition to Amazing Spider-Man, Wolverine and Captain America and Black Widow are getting canceled as well.
There is already the standalone "Captain America" Marvel NOW! book, so as Robot 6 notes, Marvel may be just trimming the line down to one.
Most likely a new Wolverine will be announced as well.
