The Avengers (2012): Spider-Man Now Said To Make Cameo (Rumor)


472 Ever since news came out that Sony and Disney had come to a mutual agreement in regards to the Amazing Spider-Man movie rights, Cosmic Book News put it forth that Spider-Man would be appearing in The Avengers movie.

Then an actress on The Avengers let it be known that a Spider-Man Winnebago was on set.

Now, an apparent source has confirmed that Sony wants Andrew Garfield to make a cameo in The Avengers.

This will be similar to how Wolverine made a quick cameo in X-Men: First Class and Sony’s going to make sure to promote their new Spider-man movie any way they can. Andrew’s (Garfield) isn’t a widely known actor so they want to get his face on everything, including The Avengers even if it’s for a couple seconds.

As we have previously stated, having Spider-Man appear in The Avengers just makes plain sense, as it benefits both Sony and Disney. Disney now holds the merchandising rights to Amazing Spider-Man, and having Spidey/Andrew Garfield appear in their big budget superhero block buster certainly would create quite the buzz -- leading into the premiere of the Amazing Spider-Man on July 3rd, two months after The Avengers.
