I don't know who they're going to get to direct the new Spider-Man film, but, boy would I love to see Matthew Vaughn get a crack at it.

Wasn't supposed to say this, but... ...new issues of Amazing Spider-Man contain hidden messages about Spidey in the MCU. Buy 'em all. Twice.

Good coming from bad features big in comics. So... Did the Sony hack help finally bring SPIDER-MAN TO @MARVEL MOVIES? http://t.co/FQksqwpMGt

I'm now just going to assume Rhino killed Spider-Man at the end of TASM2.
