For years, Marvel has been trying to get Spider-Man back.
While they're making amazing hit films out of properties like The Avengers and even Guardians Of The Galaxy, their friendly neighborhood flagship character has remained under the thumb of Sony.
And they'd never give up such a cash cow! Er, spider.

But according to sources, Sony may finally have figured out a way to open the door to some crossover action!
Though they can't provide confirmation, the source is heavily hinting at closed door conversations that could connect the two cinematic universes.

Is it possible? Yes, but…
These rumors have been around for quite a while now, and no one has yet been able to verify any real plans. Maybe it's just wishful thinking?
Also, Disney likes to own things, hence buying Lucasfilm outright. It seems more likely they'd wait for a price tag they can live with rather than share their toys.

And fans might not want the crossover to come from shared control either.
Sony's Amazing Spider-Man films have not been received nearly as well as the Marvel movies. Some fans may fear the quality could become diluted in such a merger.
We doubt this is really going down anyway, but hey - Marvel was able to get Daredevil and Ghost Rider back, so who knows?
