Will Spider-Man Ever Join "The Avengers"?

Posted: July 31st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Spider-Man Ever Join "The Avengers"?Submit Comment
"The Avengers" movie is quickly coming together with Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk as the main characters. But in the comics, the mighty team had other superheroes involved, including Wolverine and Spider-Man.

The Toronto Sun recently caught up with producer Avi Arad to find out if Spider-Man will ever join "The Avengers." He replied: "No. I think obviously in the comics, the team-ups and mix-ups have kept publishing going for many years. But Spider-Man has a huge universe of its own, so many villains, foes and friends. It's not something we're thinking about because we have so much more to tell."

This is not much of a surprise since Sony (not Marvel) owns the film rights to Spider-Man and is likely not planning to give up the character anytime soon. But there were talks of Sony and Marvel coming together for "The Avengers," which obviously didn't happen.

And doesn't expect to see Fantastic Four, X-Men, Wolverine, Daredevil, or Ghost Rider in any future Marvel films either. All those characters are owned by other studios.

since spidey's parents are SHIELD agents and will be in the new spiderman movie just put in an easter egg like spidey finds their SHIELD ID badges or something.

Of course not and the reason is copyrights, Sony owns Spiderman so the studio wouldn't let the character be in The Avengers.

Of course it won't happen. But the fact that all these Marvel films are being based on the Ultimate versions gave people a little hope. In the Ultimate series, Hulk, Cap, and Spidey all got their powers from experiments derived from the blood of Wolverine. Peter's parents had worked with Banner trying to recreate the supersoldier process that transformed Captain America.

i dont understand how marvel doesnt own the rights to their own comic superhero. thats f*cking dumb. i may not fully grasp how sony owns someone elses creation, but i know for a fact sony wont make as much money on their reboot spiderman the way marvel will make on the avengers!!!

I also remember that Cartoon show. It was from 1985 or 1987 and was called Spiderman and friends. I grew up watching that show and often wondered if Firewoman was a rippoff of Human Torch (Fantastic4) or the other way around.

Will any one ever care, comic book fans like Rabid accept these gay universes and which ones meet but if they did exist at the same time everyone would be hearing about other heros all the time and the arrival of someone like spider man wouldn't be a big deal. All they are is men in spandex its all f*cking gay.

"Do they want it back?"

Max Rockatansky Junior writes:

@Frank_Castle

Depends on which version you read from Marvel.

For example :


Captain Richard Parker, a decorated soldier of the United States Army Special Forces, was recruited by Nick Fury to the C.I.A.. His much older brother, Ben Parker, was married to May Reilly Parker.

Mary Fitzpatrick was the daughter of O.S.S. agent "Wild Will" Fitzpatrick. She attended the best schools and eventually followed in her father's footsteps, becoming a C.I.A. translator and data analyst.

Richard and Mary met on the job, fell in love, and married. Originally they eloped, then later had a more elaborate service, fooling many. Mary became a field agent like Richard, giving them both an easy cover as a married couple. They were assigned to investigate Baroness Adelicia Von Krupp, who had captured an agent of a "friendly power" (who turned out to be Logan, aka Wolverine, then a Canadian operative called Agent Ten). They rescued Logan from the Baroness and Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. After that mission, they discovered that Mary was pregnant; Logan was actually the first person to congratulate the Parkers, commenting later that he never saw an agent as tough as Richard Parker go that white that fast.

Their son Peter Benjamin Parker was born some months later. However, Richard and Mary were frequently away from him on missions. While they were away, he was left in the care of Richard's older brother Ben and his wife May.

While on a mission to investigate Albert Malik, the third Red Skull, they posed as traitors and double agents to infiltrate his criminal organization in Algeria. Unfortunately they were discovered. Malik framed them and brought in an assassin called the Finisher to kill the two. Finisher sabotaged their airplane and caused it to crash. They were subsequently declared missing in action/presumed dead[1], as two burnt bodies were found in the remains.

In the Ultimate Universe :

In the Ultimate Marvel continuity, Richard "Ray" Parker was a biologist instead of a spy. He and Mary supposedly died in an airplane accident when Peter was six, and Peter still has vague memories of his parents. Before the crash, Richard was working on a cure for cancer, in the form of a biological suit that could repair its host body. He recorded a series of tapes addressed to Peter, in which he revealed that he was worried that the suit would be used as a weapon instead of a cure. A tape recorded just before the crash revealed that his project had been taken away from him. His project became the basis of Venom. His name and work were known by scientists (including Wasp and Giant Man of the Ultimates) involved in re-creating the super-soldier formula that created Captain America.



Cinematic-wise, it would be too much to add Spiderman to the fold. Even though this is an ensemble pieces, they already have enough big and middle name actors and actresses in this.

If he does or doesn't, no big deal. The real issue is they need to get all of Marvel out of all these studios and have all their characters with one. Sure it seems like tying their hands creatively but to be limited by not being able to use any character at their leisure is ridiculous.

I'm fine with them leaving Spiderman out. But I wonder if they could still cameo in the Scarlet Spiders, it would be pimp to see Stark's metallic spider suit on screen!

@smootheskimo
because Marvel Comics went bankrupt in the late 90s and had to sell all their characters off to film companies to survive.
rabid writes:

I'm fine with the way it is set up right now. Marvel/Disney can't afford to turn every comic title into a film year after year, so farming out the responsibility makes sense and stays profitable.

well if the fans can't have it as cool as the comics portray, maybe marvel can market their own cgi version of 'marvel's ultimate alliance'...other studios don't have rights to that well at least i think...it's like the avengers but with a different title, and if it can't be done in live action (which it can) then cgi it, i'm just tired of seeing too much cool stuff taken out of the comics because some nutcase director thinks people won't like it...ask the fans how they envision things and you might get a better idea on how to satisfy the things they want to see done...the best thing about something like that is the profit, but i guess hollywood is too cheap to make good money

And this is one of the only times in the history of anything where I'll say that DC did something right. All of their films are through Legendary, which means team-ups will always be a possibility. Another reason this new spider-man movie pisses me off, because if they had waited longer the rights would have reverted back to Marvel.

Bullsh*t. That's why there's a reboot. So they buttf*ck Spidey into one of the Avengers movies.
