When I saw these two pieces together this morning I thought about how cool it would be if we had a scene at the end of the upcoming Avengers movie where we see Spider-Man watching the action - just about to jump in a participate. In the comic books, Spidey is an Avenger (FINALLY!!!) and both franchises are the cornerstones of Marvel's next decade of movie making.
I wish someone working on the film who is nearly as smart as me is thinking this exact same cross promotional idea. It also wouldn't hurt the Amazing Spider-Man to have Nick Fury show up. No way that Fury would not have an asset like a Spider-Man under observation the second he started to appear in public.
I just watched episode two of this season's Avenger's cartoon. They mentioned both the X-Men and Spider-Man so there is a good chance they will be showing up in the near future. They seem to be telling the story of the 'Civil Wars' where heroes took sides in the issue of Superhero Registration.
Plus there is a new Spider-Man Unlimited cartoon where Nick Fury comes out and tells Spidey that he knows that his real name is Peter Parker. Then he offers Peter the chance to be a better hero. It's a good cartoon also.
