POLL: Andrew Garfield wants Spidey in Avengers 2—do you?

We all know The Avengers was awesome. But we also know it was kind of limited by the messy pile of studio deals that have divvied Marvel's mightiest heroes around to several different companies. Well, legal wrangling or not, new Spidey star Andrew Garfield wants his Amazing Spider-Man to join up with Cap and the gang sooner rather than later.

In an interview with Vulture promoting his upcoming Amazing Spider-Man, Garfield opened up about how he was blown away by Joss Whedon's big-screen take on The Avengers—and said he hopes Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will show up soon to recruit him for the team, as well:

"I saw it, and I was blown away. And I'm going to see it again this weekend. I have no problem adding to the amount of money it's making! [Laughs.] Joss Whedon is a genius, and it's an incredible cast. I was very, very jealous, and I wanted to jump on the screen and play with them. It killed me that I wasn't in it, but I understand why, and I'm not insulted. But hey, if Samuel L. Jackson wants to give me a shout, I'm there for the next one!"

In the comics, Spider-Man is a longtime member of the Avengers. But the film rights to Spider-Man are owned by Sony, while Marvel has the rights to the rest of the gang, with Iron Man, Thor, etc. So despite the fact that both flicks are technically Marvel properties, Peter Parker's Manhattan will have no recollection of the recent Loki invasion.
