UPDATE: Marvel Cinematic Universe Easter Egg Spotted In AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Set Photo?

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> Marvel Cinematic Universe Easter Egg Spotted In AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Set Photo?

Last year, it was reported that Oscorp Tower was set to appear in the skyline of The Avengers, but those plans were scrapped due to time constraints. Well, it now appears as if a reference to the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made it into The Amazing Spider-Man sequel!

Last year, there were countless rumours indicating that The Amazing Spider-Man would be set in the same universe as The Avengers, but as we now know, they ultimately came to nothing as there was absolutely no sort of crossover between the two movies. Well, the guys over at io9 have been sent the following set photo which seems to at least indicate that director Marc Webb is attempting to make a reference of sort to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While complicated issues with the rights of Spider-Man mean that it's unlikely we'll ever see him assemble alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the fact that they're using the "Stark Industries" logo in this way makes you wonder if they're building towards...something! Either way, this will surely be a step in the right direction in the eyes of most fans. Whether or not it actually ends up in the movie remains to be seen!



"I live in Brooklyn and they're shooting Spider-Man 2 a few blocks away. I walked by as they were unloading some costumes and noticed this motorcycle with a Stark Industries logo. Looks as if Marvel might be trying to bring these characters into a shared universe."


UPDATE: Or not? One of io9's readers has contacted them to say, "It has nothing to do with Spider-Man. I live in the neighborhood and that motorcycle belongs to a guy who lives around here."







In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

STARRING:

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson
Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro
Sally Fields as Aunt May

RELEASE DATE: May 2nd, 2014.
