I decided to make this thread only because the rumor has surfaced a number of times and just when it seems to go away it comes up again. Avi Arad said the other day Spider-Man would not be in The Avengers movies but Arad has a poor track record in what he says. I mean, the guy said this was not a reboot but it is...
Shock Till You Drop apparently put this up the other day, according to someone on IMDb...
Columbia Picture/Sony struck a mutual deal with Marvel Studios to allow the new Spiderman (Peter Parker) to co-exist in the Marvel cinematic universe. The deal was agreed behind closed doors due to the critical hype and success The Avengers predecessor films have made including Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man. The deal is to allow Spiderman to appear in a future Avengers film granted that Columbia Pictures gains a good percentage of the profit and royalties for all spiderman products sold. Upon the agreement was a rumor of Clark Gregg making a cameo in the Spiderman film seeing Andrew Garfield take off his costume in an alley and getting approached and the scene ends. Now it is currently up in the air if Marvel Studios will feature Spiderman in The Avengers 2 or as a brief reference in its films but it is very cool to know they will all coexist with references here and there.
I don't know how to find it on there if it is as at all. Anyway, and what's funny is the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon is being developed by Sony and Clark Gregg is playing Agent Coulson in it. Why on earth would they tie him into it?
