Movie of the moment Avengers Age Of Ultron director Joss Whedon has revealed that he wanted Spider-Man and Captain Marvel to appear in the smash hit movie.

Unfortunately for the Avengers director, Marvel & Sony’s licensing deal was only finalized once it was too late to feature them in the smash hit movie.

Speaking on the Empire Film Podcast, director Joss Whedon said: “I wanted all of those people. I said, ‘It would be great if we could just add a few more. If we could have a Captain Marvel there, that you’ve made a deal for.’ And they talked about it.”

Whedon explained. “And I was like, ‘And Spider-Man, we could do that too, because Sony had approached us during the first movie about a little integration. So, I would have put both of them in, but neither of the deals were made.”

During filming, Marvel announced a Captain Marvel film, and they made a deal with Sony to include Spider-Man in their cinematic universe.

After all of that they approached Whedon, which he recounts, “And then they’re like, ‘We’re making a Captain Marvel movie and we’ve got Spider-Man as a property,’ and I’m like, ‘I’ve already locked my film you f***ers! Thanks for nothing.’”
