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