A hot topic amongst just about everyone who loves to watch comic book movies is a crossover between The Avengers and Spider-Man.

Sony owns the film rights to Spider-Man, and Disney and Marvel Studios own The Avengers characters.

While a crossover between the two may never come to pass, as the producers on Amazing Spider-Man recently stated that would only happen if they were basically desperate for ideas, producer Avi Arad further offers that Spider-Man would have to be the focus of the movie.

Arad tells the Toronto Sun the following:

But if we want to do that, the crossovers, it has to be a story that is absolutely centered on Spider-Man. We cannot be second banana to anything out there. Because this is the king. This is the one that influenced young people from birth.

I’m not preaching, but Spider-Man, Peter Parker, who is in all of us, is too important to go in and use it as a sidepiece for corporate purposes. The studio may disagree with me, some fans may disagree with me. I don’t care.
