Avengers and Spider-Man crossover rumoured

Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are in talks to create an Avengers and Spider-Man crossover film.

The two companies are said to be in early talks to develop a film together which could see Peter Parker join the team of superheroes.

Spider-Man frequently appeared alongside The Avengers in the popular series of Marvel comics, but Marvel Studios sold the film rights to the web-slinging character years before the global success of their 2012 movie 'The Avengers'.

According to EW, the companies are in "delicate preliminary conversations." However it's not the first time that discussions have taken place, with 'The Amazing Spider-Man' director Marc Webb admitting that previous efforts to develop a joint project had been unsuccessful.

Earlier this year, Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield sparked rumours that a collaboration could happen when he said that he would like to star in a crossover movie.

He admitted: "I would love that. I know that the fans would love that, the fans of the Marvel universe ... the more the merrier, the bigger the better."

The revelation follows the plans of other shared universe films for Spider-Man such as the female-led 'Venom' and 'The Sinister Six', which is set to be released in 2016.
