It doesn't have to be anytime soon, but do you think that Spider-Man will EVER be in the MCU? Even if its not for another 10-15 years. Sony has to make a film every 5 years in order to keep the film rights to the character. When this current Marc Webb series is over (lets say by 2017 or so), they would have to reboot the series AGAIN after 5 years, or continue it. There was talk of Webb POSSIBLY mapping out a Spider-Man cinematic universe, leading up to a Sinister Six film or something. In that case, Sony would hold onto the rights for a VERY long time. With the Oscorp tower almost being in the skyline, Spider-Man & Iron Man being in the target commercial together, and the ESU shirt appearing in the Item 47 short, does anyone think its possible that Spider-Man will at the very least make an appearance in an MCU film? Let me hear your thoughts. Spider-Man is the flagship character and icon of Marvel comics, so I think he should have some part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
