What has Peter Parker got to do with the Extremis or anything else in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? There is no connection at all. His origin is explained in his own movies, produced by Sony. And if you missed the last one, the radioactive spider bite wasn't even the cause of his powers. They changed it to some muddled BS about his father's experiments at Oscorp.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
