Marvel and Sony Rumored to Share the Rights to Spider-Man

There’s a rumor going around according to HitFix that says Marvel and Sony may actually be working out a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony is currently working its way toward The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but if they can manage to work something out with Marvel, we may be able to see an even bigger Marvel Cinematic Universe than what’s already planned.

“While I can’t get the confirmations I need to verify the story, I’m hearing that there are some very cool ‘Spider-Man’ plans being discussed that would help Sony refocus their enormously important franchise while also opening up some connections in the onscreen Marvel movie universe that would blow fandom’s minds,” says HitFix’s Drew McWeeny in his report. “What seems clear from what I’ve heard is that Marvel wants to be able to play with all of their characters, and if they can make that work creatively and on a corporate level, they will, and that means the world gets bigger again.”

What could this mean for Sony and Marvel? The possibilities are just about endless. Spider-Man would eventually be able to join the Avengers. Another Spider-Man film could feature an appearance from Iron Man or even Hulk. Venom might actually be in the Infinity Gauntlet-type crossover of Avengers 3 (or 4).

Of course all of these are just rumors right now, but one can hope the two companies can work something out on paper. It would definitely give Sony some extra money for their slowly dying Spider-Man franchise and give Marvel an even bigger boost it needs to expand in the film medium. Only time will tell.
