Spider-Man was almost in Avengers: Age of Ultron


Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon has revealed exactly how close Spider-Man came to being in the Avengers sequel and it turns out that we were pretty darn close to seeing the Webhead in the movie!

Whedon, and the film’s Vision, Paul Bettany sat down for Empire Movie’s podcast and spilled quite a few Avengers: Age of Ultron related beans including Whedon’s grand plan to introduce some less than familiar superheros to the mix, Spidey being one of them!

"I was like, ‘And Spider-Man, we could [include him in Avengers 2 also], cause Sony had approached us during the first movie about a little integration. So I would have put both [Captain Marvel and Spider-Man] in, but neither of the deals were made. And then they were like, ‘We’re making a Captain Marvel movie and we’ve got Spider-Man as a property,’ and I’m like, ‘I’ve already locked my film, you ****ers! Thanks for nothing.’"

People will probably remember the news that Captain Marvel had been pulled from the film having initially been written into the film’s script. During the podcast Whedon revealed that he wanted to add Captain Marvel to the group shot of the ‘New Avengers’ at the end of the film, featuring Vision, Falcon, War Machine and Scarlet Witch.  However, he also wanted to put Spider-Man in that scene as well, but as he states in the above quote it wasn’t possible until it was all too late.
