Though it's going to be some time before the X-Men (if ever) join Marvel's ranks, and the less said about Spider-Man’s current relationship with the Marvel universe, the better, both entities were teased right at the start of the universe.
Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) did the honours, as the movie’s producer Kevin Feige revealed at the 45th annual Saturn Awards.
"We pulled some things out of that vault that we said, ‘We’ll never show this to anybody, put it away.’ We’re bringing them out, we’re putting them on this disc, and I’m about to show you a deleted scene that has never been seen by anyone before right now," Feige teased.
In the clip, Fury is with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) discussing the Avenger Initiative.
He spoke about "gamma accidents, radioactive bug bites and assorted mutants” and referred to Tony as "a spoiled brat who doesn’t play well with others and wants to keep all his toys to himself".
