‘Marvel's The Avengers’ Huge Cameo Spoiler Revealed by Jenny Agutter

The actress makes a seemingly ridiculous claim about which popular character shared Winnebago space with Iron Man.

Another major character rumor arrives for Marvel's The Avengers We've heard huge potential character rumors leaking out of Marvel's the Avengers left to right since it began production last spring. But now we've got one so ridiculous, could it possibly be true?

Read no further, as we are entering the land of the Major Spoiler!

The Radio Times has an interview with 59-year-old An American Werewolf in London actress Jenny Agutter, who has a role in this summer's epic adventure Marvel's the Avengers. Claiming she has been sworn to secrecy about the project, Agutter refused to give away any major character details, or even say whom she is playing. But she did reveal one major Marvel character cameo spoiler, if true.

The Amazing Spider-Man is going to be in the movie.

Yes, according to the actress, Andrew Garfield was (supposedly, unless they got someone else inside that suit) sharing Winnebago space with Robert Downey Jr. on the closely guarded set. In terms of storytelling, this works. As Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter ego have worked on and off with Marvel's the Avengers throughout their pulp run, becoming a reserve member of The Avengers in the 90s (though never an official member) and later, leader of The New Avengers. As of 2011, he is both a member of The Avengers and the Fantastic Four.

What doesn't make sense is that The Amazing Spider-Man is a Sony Pictures property, while Marvel's the Avengers is tied to Walt Disney Pictures and Paramount. Is it possible that all studios involved have come to some sort of shared agreement (which we were told would never happen)? Or is this just a radical oversight on actress Jenny Agutter's behalf?

Anything is possible. Michael Keaton got to play the same role in Miramax's Jackie Brown as he did in Universal Pictures' Out of Sight, the last time a literary franchise character was shared between two major studios companies. It's very possible that Marvel Studios, the one's behind Marvel's the Avengers, have pulled some massive money strings to get Spidey involved in their film universe.

It is also highly unlikely.

Chances are, the magazine printed the wrong character's name, or Jenny Agutter simply had the wrong character in mind when she spoke. She could very easily have been talking about The Black Widow. Or maybe she meant Spider-Woman? Also a member of the Avengers team. Whoever it is, we can expect some sort of surprise Marvel character in the film. (If we don't spoil it here first, though...Jeez, I suck! But so do you, as you've read this far. Even with all the name calling you just couldn't help yourself, could you? I gave you a spoiler warning, what more do you want from me? Bunch of jerks!)

Here is a photo from the magazine article along with the excerpt.

Jenny Agutter reveals major spoiler in Marvel's The Avengers

"As for Agutter, she's about to metamorphose again to appear alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson in upcoming Hollywood blockbuster Marvel's the Avengers.

"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."

She does let slip that two of these housed Spider-Man and Iron Man; we suspect Agutter won't able to avoid sci-fi conventions for much longer."

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012.

The Amazing Spider-Man was released July 3rd, 2012.

            Maybe Disney and Marvel will acquired the rights from Sony and 20th Century Fox to use characters like the ones you mentioned in one the sequels ?


            • Intoxicated • 4 years ago

              It would be so much easier if Disney and Marvel just acquired the rights from Sony and 20th Century Fox to use characters like Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Wolverine or Deadpool in one of the sequels.


              • barkx • 4 years ago

                So here's a thought...

                With "The Amazing Spider-Man" looking to 're-tell' Peter Parker's origin, based around the death of his parents, whom, in Marvel Comics lore, worked for SHEILD. Rumors are rife about whether or not they will also work for SHEILD in Sony's re-boot.

                Now we have a lot of speculation that Spider-Man will make a guest cameo in Marvel's The Avengers.

                As we know, each franchise is owned by a different studio: Spider-Man is with Sony, The Avengers (and individual heroes Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk etc) are with Disney/Marvel.

                Many critics, journalist's and other people who are in the know are quick to shoot down these rumors, saying that a deal between the two studios would NEVER be made and it would be impossible.


                (and this is all just pure "What If..." on my behalf!)

                What If (!) a deal WAS made between the two studios that allowed for guest cameos by characters in EACH of the others' film franchises...!

                So if Garfield's Spider-Man was to appear in Marvel's The Avengers, MAYBE this would allow for Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury to then make a cameo in Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man... Thus allowing Sony to tie in Parker's parents to SHEILD!

                Follow all that?!

                This would allow future sequels to then make greater use of these cameos, possibly allowing Spider-Man to be a more integral part of The Avengers franchise, and also allowing for guest appearances by Captain America or Iron Man in The Amazing Spider-Man films!

                As I said, this is all just my humble opinion and speculation. It would be any Marvel fanboy's dream though! Thanks for taking the time to read :)


                • moviemaniac66 • 4 years ago

                  I highly doubt that Sony made a deal with Disney but if they did then I will be EXTREMELY surprised.


                  • shuabert • 4 years ago

                    I'm willing to bet the magazine just f*cked up the name or misunderstood her. It's HIGHLY unlikely that Sony would come to a deal with Marvel that would do anything to weaken their control of the Spider-man property, one they've fought tooth and nail to keep hold of, especially in a year when they have a huge Spider-Man movie coming out that's attempting to reignite the franchise.


                    • ROFLitschristian • 4 years ago

                      Spider-Man has always been an Avenger in my mind. Pretty sure this isn't true though. Just seems way too nostalgic to be true. Also, until I see Garfield as Spidey, which I'm not rushing to see, I'm on the fence about this one.


                      • jayaottley • 4 years ago

                        Ok, well obviously this is a misunderttanding...

                        Spiderman isn't in the movie... The Avengers and TAS were filmed on the same set stages, this is a popularly known thing.

                        And i managed to meet, Andrew Garfield a few weeks back and even he denied himself about being involved in The Avengers, stating its just everyone jumping to fan speculation and conclusions because they filmed on the same set, even stating that a Lady Gaga and Chris Brown music video were filmed on TAS set, that doesn't mean they will make a cameo in the film

                          @alex172005 I agree. But it is called movie rights. Before Disney bought Marvel, the comic book maker had sold rights of characters, for the sole purpose of tv and or movies. Bu

                          But this dosn't mean this isn't true. Maybe, instead of using "Peter Parker" character on screen, by name, Andrew can be seen with out Spider-Man costume or being called out. Just a idea if a agreement was not made. But I doubt he would be including in a origin movie for Avengers. If anything, a cameo to promote Spider-Man.

                            So many spoilers have been leaked about this movie, but dispite all the leakage, this is still a hyped up movie...


                            • razorglove1428 • 4 years ago

                              I KNEW IT! The new Spider-Man movie is going into detail about his origins, particularly what happened to his parents. Any comic devote knows that Richard and Mary Parker were agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and were killed by the Red Skull on a mission with Nick Fury! Which means, Peter delving into his background would inevitably lead him to a tie-in with The Avengers! Not to mention, I doubt she'd agree to play a role before she knew what it was. She may not have seen the script, but she would have at least known why she was there beforehand. The other characters involved with her role, however, could have easily been a surprise.

                                Do not believe all the rumors you hear the chance that Spidey is in the film is quite small. There has been alot of rumors going around about the skrulls, and red skull and non of them will appear in the movie. www.craveonline.com/film/articles/181747-no-red-skull-or-skrulls-in-the-avengers

                                      I'm not mad about the spoilers here either.


                                      • alex172005 • 4 years ago

                                        Disney owns Marvel...what would prevent them from using one of the Marvel characters? Is there some sort of contract that says they can't use what they own in this case?


                                        • paco-chanona • 4 years ago

                                          It could be a strategy to impulse the Amazing Spider Man movie better, isn't as hyped as the Avengers and a cameo will make people more interest in it
