We now know the early appearance of Thanos and then the Guardians of the Galaxy in Avengers Assemble had some relation to Marvel's plans to feature Thanos as the background villain in the "Marvel's The Avengers" feature film (and presumably the feature baddie in a sequel) as well as the fact the studio is launching a 2014 "Guardians of the Galaxy" film. Could Marvel be signaling plans to feature Spider-Woman in a future film, perhaps "The Avengers 2", or as the star of the just-announced Marvel movie-universe TV series Joss Whedon wil oversee? Spider-Man's film/liveaction rights belong to Sony of course and Spider-Woman isn't really a member of that cast of characters. Could Marvel Studios pull an end-around to feature a Spider-character in their own cinematic Universe, either on the big screen or small by brining in ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jessica Drew? Could be worth monitoring... More from Newsarama:
