RoJoHen-- You say that some characters work better on their own, but Spider-Man is the most teamed up with character in Marvel has. Generally speaking, he usually has a team up book in print at any given time. Hell, even the Dr Octopus version of the character has his own team up book.

Have to admit that I like the jacket. Hunters need cold-weather gear too, after all.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

More thoughts on Spider-Man. Don't get me wrong, a brief teamup isn't a terrible idea. But part of Peter Parker's story is that he has the weight of the world on his shoulders. If Captain America, Iron Man, and the Norse god of thunder all help him out, that gets reduced quite a bit. If Avengers 3 is back in New York (Avengers 2 seems to be Johannesburg, Seoul, Novigrad, etc.), a cameo where he helps out wouldn't have been beyond the pale. But I certainly don't miss him and I'm fine letting him do his own thing. This is different from the X-Men universe, where I'd like to avoid the complicated entanglement of the story of mutants and evolving humanity with a world where superpowers are created through other various means. One is persecuted and the other isn't and there isn't a real cohesive story reason for that except, when X-Men deals with its themes, it isn't doing cross-overs at the moment.

Anyway, my guess is Avengers 3 is going to have Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy (one, some, or all), and Dr. Strange. If Peter Parker sits this one out, it'll be ok.

Not to mention... what good is Spidey going to be against Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet?

No, Quicksilver only has one scene in Days of Future Past, and it's in the '70s.
He's in the film for more than one scene.
Not according to the director.
Yet this sneak peek showcases more scenes featuring Quicksilver, implying he's going to be in the movie for more than one scene. On top of that, photos have been revealed also confirming Quicksilver appears in multiple scenes. He probably doesn't have a big role, but "one beat" doesn't equate to one scene. Singer's most likely referring to a story beat or something along those lines.

Eh, he'd probably do better than Black Widow and Hawkeye. He's got legit powers.

Is Spider-Man any weaker than Captain America? I understand that Spider-Man can lift over 20 tons, he can jump higher and he can shoot webs. He doesn't have the good Captain's shield, but that's about it.

Spidey was tough enough to take out the entire X-Men team in "Secret Wars" until Xavier took him out with a mental attack.

Heck, every time he and Logan fight Logan always ends up with his ass kicked.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

I wonder, though. If Spider-Man could be in the MCU, how would they reconcile the damage from the Chitauri Invasion with the apparently perfect New York from The Amazing Spider-Man?

That's...better than his first Avengers look, but the red seems really out of place. Like it was added in after the fact.

As opposed to Captain America?
