Default Re: Do you think Marvel will EVER get the film rights to Spider-Man?

Yeah, but the point is, probably atleast 80-85% of the people that were apart of Spidey making half of The Avengers are going to be in those same theaters for Avengers regardless of Spidey's involvement. Again, it comes to money. If Sony offers him at a high cost, is it really worth it? Keep in mind, I'm talking about the very basic aspect of allowing cross-overs in The Avengers films only. I'm not talking about some sort of deal where Marvel has more creative control with all Spiderman films with his films being loosely tied to the MCU or, even less likely, getting Spiderman back all together. Both of those, IMO, are easily worth the money because of what you stated. Spidey is Marvel's biggest character. However, for involvement in a team film every 3 or 4 years, it depends on if Sony is going to rip them off or not.
