UNTOLD TALES OF SPIDER-MAN
Despite the cover blurb, Spidey's parents were never Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Editor made a mistake.
A couple days ago it came out that an actress on the set of The Avengers said she saw a Winibago/trailer that was for Spider-Man.
Previously, Cosmic Book News theorized that Spider-Man (or Peter Parker) would be appearing in The Avengers, as Sony and Disney had come to a deal in regards to the rights for the Amazing Spider-Man. Sony keeps the movie rights, while Disney gets the merchandising rights.
So it just might be mutually beneficial to Sony and Disney if both movies are promoted by each other. Capice?
Now, even more evidence -- of sorts -- has made its way on to the net via a plot description for the Amazing Spider-Man from the Official Spider-Man India Facebook:
What is intriguing about that description is the "mystery" surrounding Peter's parents.
In the comic books, Peter's father, Richard Parker, was recruited by the CIA by - Nick Fury. Likewise, Peter's mother, Mary, worked at the CIA, where she met Richard. (Note: The two were never Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They were in the CIA and disappeared or died before S.H.I.E.L.D. formed.)
Could Peter's journey lead him to a brief cameo confronting Nick Fury in The Avengers?
Might be a stretch, but there is something there that could at least connect the two movies, well, other than Spider-Man being an actually card-holding Avenger.
