Although that raises the question: hypothetically, of course, would there be any difficulties with incorporating the ASM universe into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Perhaps the main continuity issue would be the Manhattan skyline, since there was no Stark Tower in ASM and no Oscorp Tower in The Avengers.
Apparently Disney/Marvel and Sony had actually agreed to show the OsCorp Tower in The Avengers
, but the idea fell through because the Manhattan skyline in The Avengers
had already been rendered before the OsCorp design was completed for TASM.
Too bad, that would have been a neat little easter egg.
