Spiderman is THE most popular Marvel comics superhero and the cornerstone of the Marvel Universe. He doesn't get drafted, he's the commissioner.

That's pretty impossible. If Spidey could do that, he'd have been locked up by Marvel, they'd do whatever means possible to secure him
Spiderman and hulk on the screen together is numbers everywhere. From kids, adults, comic nerds. Just watch...

So you gonna act like SONY didn't sign away all of the Spidey rights (animated, merch, etc.) that aren't the movies to Marvel so that they could basically keep the film rights forever?
I mean what happened to that weak rumor about an Oscorp building in Avengers?
I'd be disappointed if Marvel studios allowed themselves to be involved with that weak *** Green Goblin SONY is trying to sell.
Can you quote somebody about that whole working close with Marvel? If anything sounds like they're reassuring fans so that they don't get anywhere near the debacle that might be the Fantastic Four since they're not working closely at all with Marvel. As it stands now the current incarnation of the Marvel cinematic universe can't mesh with SONY's Spidey world in the least. There'd need to be a reboot on both sides and there won't cuz dudes are planning movies well in to 2020. At best you might get a crossover the way one universe of heroes meets another and right now that's still a stretch.
Keep dreaming bruh.
The box office #s aint really showing that though
As things stand now, being affiliated with Marvel studios is more important than any one hero.
His appearance wouldn't triple earnings of anything
You talking like the ASM movies made a billion each on their own
Compared to Marvel lets be serious.
Zik, I urge you to look at that 75th anniversary pic in depth. That is the main picture. Look at the characters on the picture, these are characters that Marvel has planned films around. If the picture was based SOLELY on popularity black bolts wack *** wouldn't be there, Falcon, Ms. Marvel, Groot, rocket, star-lord over Wolverine, cyclops, the thing. But they are and the characters on there are all involved in a Marvel Cinematic Universe project right? Iron fist, check. Black bolt, check. Avengers, check. Ms. Marvel if you've read avengers 2 rumors check. So I ask you where does Spiderman fit in? ....
As for the oscorp tower appearance I thought it would've been great. And if these early rumblings of a civil war (which I've been clamoring for since forever) are true then like you know civil war along with the rest of the Marvel universe can't really happen without spiderman. The reason ASM and ASM 2 hasn't made "huge" money is because of viewers still being obsessed with the Raimi version and feeling like the same story is being rehashed but both ASM and ASM2 have made 700 mil world wide each. That is still a successful film franchise but still a little shy of the money the first spiderman films were taking in. All I'm saying is that Sony and Marvel have a good relationship. They were already one step away from having Avengers and ASM in the same universe. Both studios are working with each other for Spiderman expanded movie universe (can't find the quote but someone has to know what I'm speaking of) marvel even canceled EMH to make a new Avengers cartoon just so it can take place in the same world as The ultimate Spiderman cartoon. He's an honorary Avenger in that show. He's met the guardians about twice in that show and I think there's an episode with the inhumans coming up soon.......this isn't a coincidence. In the least....

Marvels best selling monthly release is ASM (Tho Rocket Raccoon sold 300k in July I am not sure how long that will last). ASM usually sells just short of Scott Snyder's Batman. In contrast, Marvel's highest grossing movies are IM and Avengers. Avengers popularity in the comic world is pretty recent and still aint doing nowhere near ASM numbers.
Here are the July numbers. Besides RR, Spidey 2099, and all the new issue number 1s, it's pretty representative of what you will normally find.
3. ****** Marvel Crossover
The highest selling Avengers title not even doing half of ASM
The highest selling IM title not even doing a quarter of ASM
That aint close to the movie revenue in terms of relativity to each other. Spidey aint doing IM or Avengers numbers. I wouldnt be surprised if Guardians overtakes spidey as well, like Captain America did.
Regardless if we're talking comic Spiderman is Marvel's biggest superhero and the center of Marvel comics. For him to not be even referenced or appear in Marvels biggest film about their characters forming an ensemble team that spiderman has even been apart of throughout the years seems odd. If you've read the A2 rumors of how Ms. Marvel is suppose to come into play then Spider-man's appearance seems like a possibility
