Director Marc Webb is curious about a Spider-Man and X-Men crossover

Marc Webb is curious about a Spider-Man and X-Men crossover.

The 39-year-old director - who recently helmed 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' - addressed the idea of the web-slinging hero meeting the mutants after 'X-Men' producer Simon Kinberg insisted it would be "the dream."

Webb - who doesn't think it will happen any time soon - told MTV news: "[I] would be certainly curious about it.

"Certainly there's precedent in the comics for a crossover. I would love to see it as a fan."

Before he added: "I'm not in control of that."

Webb admits part of Spider-Man's appeal is his ability to overcome problems alone.

He added: "A big part of Spider-Man is him being alone and having to face the problems in the world and his own problems alone.

"That's part of what makes Spider-Man so great."

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' recently hit the big screen with Andrew Garfield in the lead role of Peter Parker and Emma Stone starring as his love interest.

  • UK release: 16 April 2014

Peter Parker (Garfield) goes up against new supervillains Electro (Foxx) and Harry Osborn (DeHaan). Garfield and Stone have enormous chemistry, Foxx and DeHaan bring complexity and pathos, and the rebooted franchise continues to capture the original character's wise-cracking energy in a way that the Raimi trilogy didn't.
