Does The Avengers Feature A Surprise Superhero Cameo?

|

Note: This post contains an potential spoiler for the upcoming Avengers movie. If you aren’t interested in knowing the identity of the highly questionable, potentially epic superhero who allegedly makes a cameo in the summer blockbuster, please take a moment to appreciate the skintight bodysuits sported by Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson in this photo, and then LOOK AWAY! OK, maybe a few more seconds on the bodysuits and then NOW! LOOK AWAY NOW!

According to Avengers actress Jenny Agutter (billed as Female council member on IMDB), the cross-over character is none other than …Spider-Man? Wha? Huh? Buh? “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 full of Winnebagos,” Agutter gushed to The Radio Times … before revealing that one of those Winnebagos is currently housing the web-slinger. Why do we have a feeling that Agutter is currently dodging a gigantic mystical hammer? Or at least an enraged phone call from Avengers director Joss Whedon? Is this news the fulfillment of all your fanboy and -girl dreams, or is this a more terrible idea than casting Topher Grace as Venom in Spider-Man 3? In case you had forgotten, that was a terrible idea.
