The star of The Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield has expressed a want for a Spidey / Avengers cross-over film. Many of us know that Spider-Man is part of The Avengers in the comics but when it comes to the big screen, just like the X-Men it’s a web of film right issues that stop the superheroes from ever teaming up.
Sony own Spidey, Disney owns The Avengers and Fox own the X-Men. Andrew Garfield recently spoke to Yahoo Movies saying “I would love that!” he continued, once quizzed further “I know that the fans would love that, the fans of the Marvel universe… the more the merrier, the bigger the better.” and I damn agree with you Andrew, you son of a gun.
Having Spider-Man fighting along side The Avengers would make for an awesome movie and a one that fans would without a doubt love to see. Garfield isn’t alone on his thoughts, The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Director, Marc Webb (huhu Webb) had this to say on the subject “I would love that, as a fan, I think that would be great, I don’t know how that would happen, but I certainly would be supportive of it.”
He’s not the only person who’s going to support it now is he? If you’ve watched the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengers films and never said to yourself “Why do they never bump into one and other?” then please leave, because I ask every time, and every time there’s no bumping. Just my broken dreams of an amazing film with an all-star superhero team from all different studios.
One day maybe. And Andrew Garfield agrees – “I say ‘never say never’, you know. I think everyone would love to see that.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is in cinemas 18th April 2014.
