After the tweet heard around the world by Mr. Liefeld himself.
"X-Men will match If not exceed ASM2's domestic box office, meaning lots of eyeballs, but there are no toy tie-ins. The Fox shut out is real"
Wow! I have heard rumors of this but I didn't believe it was true. Marvel Studios and Sony can broker a deal to include Spidey in possible Avengers films. But there is one problem.
Time wise, [The Amazing Spider-Man](movie:45497) takes place AFTER the events of The Avengers. Not years but months after. Which means TASM contradicts [The Avengers](movie:9040) because New York City is shown unharmed before the events of TASM. It's basically saying The Battle of New York never happened.
The only way to fix this is to keep the same actors in the same roles, but in a different universe. Partial reboot you can call it. Which wouldn't be too much of a hassle to pull off. By moving production of [Sinister Six](movie:1274281) and Venom to Marvel Studios. They could easily increase the income for Marvel, Disney, and Sony. Given Sony's financial issues, this would be a feasible option for avoiding bankruptcy in the future.
