Marc Webb Would 'Love To See' Spider-Man/X-Men Crossover

Spider-Man and the X-Men often team up in the comics, and if "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" director Marc Webb had anything to say about it, they would do it on the big screen too.

"Certainly there's precedent in the comics for a crossover. I would love to see it as a fan," Webb said, though he quickly added, "I'm not in control of that."

Though Webb would love to see Spidey and Wolverine in the same room together, he also talked about the virtue of Spider-Man as a standalone character.

"A big part of Spider-Man is him being alone and having to face the problems in the world and his own problems alone," said Webb. "That's part of what makes Spider-Man so great."

Recently, there's been more and more speculation of the webslinger meeting the mutants, especially since "X-Men" producer Simon Kinberg said that such a crossover would be "the dream."

As Webb said, he's not in control, and it probably won't happen any time soon, but he "would be certainly curious about it."

For fans everywhere, that's the understatement of the century.
