X-Men: Days of Future Past Scene Featured in Amazing Spider-Man 2 Credits
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.16.2014



The idea of Marvel's properties crossing over despite their being owned by different studios is one that comic book movie fans have been fervently dreaming about for quite a while, and it's been teased in various conversations by actors. And now Fox and Sony have upped the stakes in that field. As Empire reports, a scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past appears in the end credits for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The scene involves Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Havok (Lucas Till), Toad (Evan Jonigkeit) and Stryker (Josh Helman), but don't get too excited about this one; it's basically an ad for the X-Men film and in no way a connection between the two franchises.

The scene was first brought to light today as Spidey 2 began early previews overseas before its international openings this weekend ahead of its May 2nd domestic release. According to Variety, this isn't any sort of agreement between the two studios to combine the franchises into one universe but instead a fulfillment of a contractual obligation. The site notes that, as was reported a couple years back, Marc Webb's status with the Spider-Man franchise became stick because Fox had him nailed down for another film following 500 (Days) of Summer. The deal worked out between Sony and Fox allowed the latter studio to put a scene in the credits to promote the mutant film.

Fox has been reportedly moving to unite its X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises into one universe, so maybe there's hope for one giant cohesive Marvel universe some day after all.
