The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to release on May 2, 2014 and will further expand the Spider-Man universe. In the sequel we will get to see Spider-Man origin unfold as to what happened to his parents. But ick Fury himself who has been such a huge part of Spider-Man’s legacy is missing from the story. For the many Spidey fans out there we know that Nick Fury recruited Peter Parker’s parents missions when they were C.I.A agents. So why not expand the MCU to the Spider-Man universe.
I’m sure Sony and director Marc Webb already know how they want the second and third installments to TASM to go but why not have a S.H.I.E.L.D. presence in those movies. It seems as though Sony and Webb are following the Ultimate story arc with Peter’s parents being biologists. In the end credits of Iron Man Nick Fury says to Tony Stark you think you’re the only superhero in town, you’re part of a bigger universe you just don’t know it yet, so wouldn’t Nick Fury be aware of a guy in a blue and red suit webslinging around New York fighting crime? Not to mention in the Avengers Black Widow says that S.H.I.E.L.D. monitors all potential threats, wouldn’t S.H.I.E.L.D. know about the events that took place between Spidey and the Lizard on top of Oscorp when Curt Connors tried to turn the people of New York into his own personal army of lizards.
Kevin Feige has stated that other studios owning movie rights to Marvel properties have contacted him if they can use S.H.I.E.L.D. in their movies and Feige seems open to the idea. Disney and Sony came close to having a deal that would allow the Oscorp building in the Avengers but fell through because of scheduling issues. Avi Arad has a good relationship with Feige and Marvel Studios who also seems hip to the idea of possibly having Spider-Man involved in the MCU and in return Disney and Marvel Studios allow Sony to use one of their Marvel properties, nothing serious just little cameos here and there. For example maybe Peter is on the train reading the Daily Bugle with Iron Man on the front page and some kid walks up to him and ask who would win in a fight between Spider-Man and Iron Man or have Spider-Man web slinging through the city and swings by Stark Tower. Like I said nothing major just small cameos or Easter Eggs here and there to acknowledge each others existence.
