In the era of The Avengers, Batman vs. Superman and X-Men: Days of Future Past, comic book movies have begun to look more like comic books. Multiple movies featuring multiple characters all take place in the same universe, making crossovers possible. There are, unfortunately, some crossovers that are currently impossible because various studios own the rights to major characters. Spider-Man, for example, is at Sony, while the X-Men and Fantastic Four are at 20th Century Fox. That makes crossover with the Marvel Studios characters legally difficult.
According to Hugh Jackman, those barriers almost broke down in 2002. A few short years after Bryan Singer’s original X-Men, then lower level Marvel producer Kevin Feige suggested Wolverine cameo in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. Jackman even traveled to the city, but something stopped it from happening. Read More »

For a geeky dude, Andrew Garfield‘s Peter Parker does pretty well with the ladies. He got himself into a relationship with the amazing Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, and over the next couple of installments he’ll also cross paths with Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy. But Garfield thinks it’s high time Peter broadened his dating horizons.
In a recent interview, he floated the idea of a male MJ — which would, of course, mean a gay or bisexual Spider-Man. And he thinks Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan would be just the guy to sweep Spidey off his feet. Read Garfield’s comments after the jump.
