We don't know about you, but we love a good cameo. Cameos are cool. And this morning, we have some VERY exciting news about a possible—and, if true, potentially mind-blowing—cameo appearance from a major Marvel superhero in this summer's The Avengers. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Actress Jenny Agutter (fanboys and fangirls will remember her as the beautiful Jessica 6 in the timeless sci-fi classic Logan's Run), who has a small role as a ''council member'' in Marvel's upcoming tentpole The Avengers, may have accidentally spilled some major beans by revealing that a very important Marvel character may make a cameo appearance in the film.

So just who is this superhero?

WARNING: Spoilers below!

Are you sure you wanna know?

Right. On with it then, but don't forget to take this news with a grain of salt.

This major superhero in question is none other than the amazing Spider-Man himself! Check out the Radio Times tidbit below :

While Spider-Man is owned by Sony, The Avengers is owned by Marvel Studios. So the question is: Did Jenny Agutter make a mistake? Is it a mistake from the Radio Times writer? Or has one of the coolest cameo appearances in a Marvel film—on par with Wolverine's cameo appearance in X-Men: First Class—just been revealed?

What do you think? Do you believe it likely—or unlikely—that everyone's favorite web-slinger Spider-Man will make a cameo appearance in The Avengers?
