The report claims that Sony submitted a design for the Oscorp building from Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot for use in the Manhattan skyline depicted in The Avengers.

Marvel was allegedly keen to include the structure in the film, but the timing did not work out and the idea was scrapped.

The news has given rise to speculation that Spider-Man could potentially feature in a future Avengers sequel, despite two different studios owning the screen rights to the properties.

It follows comments from Amazing Spider-Man producer Avi Arad, who claimed that an on-screen crossover between the two series is indeed "possible".
