When should you expect to see a crossover with Spider-Man and X-Men?

When will we see a true crossover between Spider-Man and the X-Men?

TRY WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER.

Sorry, I was just prepping you for the real answer. Many fans would love to see Marvel characters crossover on the big screen, and as such will be teased when you go check out THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, but then again, it won’t.

So here’s the thing: Yes, there’s a scene after the Spider-Man sequel that has something to do with X-MEN, however, it’s basically just an advertisement with unique placement. Basically this all comes down to a little clause in Marc Webb’s contract. The director owed Fox Searchlight another film, so instead he plugged X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST at the end of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Now that fans know about it they are freaking out about the possibilities, and I’m here to destroy them for you. Well, I’m just the messenger.

When Spidey producer and founder of Marvel Studios, Avi Arad spoke with IGN he basically said that they will do a crossover when they run out of ideas.

I think it will take a moment in which we’ve run out of ideas. There's so much to tell about Spider-Man. There's so much to tell about the Sinister Six. The relationship between Spider-Man and Venom will bring a whole other world in.

He continued by saying that doing such a thing might look more like a “stunt” when you have so much to pull from the Spidey universe.

You know Avi always refers to that question as a stunt," he says. "If you were to do that, you know, Spider-Man in the Avengers is a stunt. And I get why everybody – you know, fans and audience members and movie goers – I understand it.

When you think about the Sinister Six and you think about Venom and you think about Carnage and you think Spider-Man in whatever way you want in association with those movies, they feel like they're built for Spider-Man. Like that's where his story needs to go and wants to go and it has to be about more than a stunt.

Stunts can be cool but it's also a business, and so the other side of the answer is they're owned by different companies. And there's a ton left in Sony's world; there's a lot of business left because there's a lot of story left. So for them to want to take this character and put it with Marvel and Disney is a huge undertaking and probably, as Avi's saying, isn't necessary until you feel like, 'Wow, we're sort of out of ideas. What should we do?' And we're far from out of ideas.”
