There's some potential awesomeness that might be brewing between Marvel and Sony Pictures. According to HitFix, which is a reliable site when it come to this kind of information, the two studios have been talking about the possibility of bringing Spider-Man into the Marvel cinematic universe! This is something that me (and a ton of other fans) have been wanting to see happen for a long time, and now it looks like there's a chance that it might. This is so freakin' exciting, but I'm trying not to let my excitement get the best of me. After all, this is only a rumor, but here's what the site says,
"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."
Earlier today we reported that The Avengers 3 might not include some of our favorite superheroes, including Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk. The rumor also suggested that we might see a new group of superheroes in the movie, and that story would lead to another film that could include all of these superheros teaming up for something epic.
Spider-Man could very well play into this plan, which would be kind of mind-blowing. Before you brush this off as something that won't happen, Marvel still holds the rights to the Spider-Man merchandising, so they don't want to see the Spider-Man movies fail, which a lot of people say happened with The Amazing Spider-Man 2. So Marvel wants to step in and help bring Spider-Man to his full potential, and if anyone can do that, it's them.
I really hope that this is happening, and if it is, I have faith that Marvel will actually be able to pull it off and make make some more movie magic.
