UPDATE: Speculation That Andrew Garfield Will Be In THE AVENGERS Begins...AGAIN
However, this time it's for the sequel! Andrew Garfield has been spotted in New York with a very big pile of The Avengers comic books featuring Thanos. A bit of light reading or research for Marvel Studios' planned sequel?
Here we go again! Before Marvel's The Avengers was released back in May, speculation was running rampant that Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker/Spider-Man would cameo in Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble. He didn't. However, the actor has now been spotted with something leading The Daily Mail to come to the conclusion that he may be swatting up for a role in the planned sequel to the most successful comic book movie ever. The fact that he's holding a bunch of comic books featuring Thanos could certainly lead one to come up with such a theory, and parties involved with both films have expressed interest in allowing Spider-Man to appear in a future The Avengers film despite the fact that the rights to the character are held by a different studio.
Seems unlikely, eh? However, Avi Arad sid recently get fan terribly excited with the declaration that, "If something like that happens, it's great for Disney, it's great for Sony. If the right story comes in..." With The Amazing Spider-Man being a hit with the majority of critics so far, a good couple of weeks at the box office could be all it takes to make this a reality. How about a cameo such as the one below? (taken from Mark Millar and Terry Dodson's Marvel Knights Spider-Man) Sound off with your thoughts below.
UPDATE: The following Tweet appears to debunk the speculation above, although it's a little strange for Marvel to make the effort to comment on something so seemingly insignificant...
