Jenny Agutter hints at potential Marvel crossover

Spider-Man could make a surprise appearance in The Avengers, it has been suggested.

Actress Jenny Agutter, who plays a council member in Marvel’s forthcoming all-star superhero blockbuster, apparently told the Radio Times that she was stationed next to Iron Man and Spider-Man’s trailers during the shoot.

She added: ”I’m sworn to secrecy. I wasn’t allowed a script until I got there, and when I did, I felt like a complete child being on big sets and a huge parking lot of Winnebagos.”

There had been no previous suggestion that Spider-Man is appearing in the film, and it is possible that the rumour was a mistake on the part of Agutter or the journalist in question.

Spider-Man is part of the Marvel universe, like The Avengers, but was not part of the team in the comic series. The Avengers is being produced by Disney/Marvel Studios, while The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield is a Sony/Columbia film, released on July 3.

The Avengers is released on May 4. You can watch the teaser trailer below.
