Word is currently spreading that everyone’s favourite Web slinger could very well be heading into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and could very well be placed straight into an Avengers movie.
According to a source at HitFlix, who are a reliable source of movie news : While I can’t get the confirmations I need to verify the story, I’m hearing that there are some very cool Spider-Man plans being discussed that would help Sony refocus their enormously important franchise while also opening up some connections in the onscreen Marvel movie universe that would blow fandom’s minds. Will it work out? I don’t know. I would love to be able to state for sure that it’s happening. What seems clear from what I’ve heard is that Marvel wants to be able to play with all of their characters, and if they can make that work creatively and on a corporate level, they will, and that means the world gets bigger again.
Now this doesn’t confirm he’s appearing- but Marvel still owns all the rights for Spiderman, and he’s far too huge a character for them to ignore or see fail on the big screen- as its been hinted FOX are cancelling his movies- and Marvel surely has plans for both the web slinger and his awesome back catalogue of villains. Who wouldn’t love to see the Sinisiter Six take on the Avengers on the big screen.
This honestly has me excited- I totally love Spiderman and the chance to see him in the bigger Marvel universe is just to good to pass up.
