Marvel superhero fans got positively X-cited when they saw the post-credits scene of Amazing Spider-Man 2. Not because it teased more Andrew Garfield spandex action, but because it teased something else entirely - X-Men: Days Of Future Past!
The sequence showed Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique kicking butt and taking names (and faces) in a scene from the upcoming sequel.
What did this mean?? Would Spider-Man cross over with the X-Men? Were FOX and Sony willing to combine their few Marvel properties to take on Marvel Studios' interlocking cinematic universe?
Unfortunately, it seems this was just another movie preview.
Sony reportedly included the clip not to tease a future collaboration but as payback for director Marc Webb delaying his contractual obligation to make another movie for FOX.
Oh well. Sorry fans, but it's just business.
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to see the entire Easter egg that got fans understandably confused.
