    What if after the failure of The Amazing Spider-man 2 Sony made a deal with fox to integrate Spider-man into Foxs X-men franchise instead of making a deal with marvel to join the MCU. Explain what spider-mans solo movies would be like and how he would of played off of and interacted with the other x-men. Do you think fox would turn spider-man into a mutant?

    I don't think Spidey would've been a mutant had Fox got the film rights from Sony.

    Spider-Man wouldn't of been a mutant as the Fantastic Four in Fantastic Four 2015 weren't mutants and that was at one point going to part of the X-Men universe. Since if it was successful it would of had sequels that would of tied in with one variation of the X-Men timeline. Of course that didn't happen but it does show there wouldn't of been the need to tie everything to mutants.

    And though the idea of FOX having the rights to Spider-Man sounds ludicrous now... the idea that qadleez suggested isn't the most improbable if we take it back to 2014. Where it was not only clear that Sony wanted to distance themselves well from the main MCU but did have closer ties to FOX. Thus why there was a Days of Future Past clip at the end tail end of Amazing Spider Man 2: the two studios were promoting one another even if it was in an indirect and kind of confusing way. Plus though Days of Future Past wasn't a gigantic box office juggernaut it's gross and reviews did make it more of a hit then Amazing Spider Man 2, so if Sony was in major trouble and needed to partner with someone else to try and save their X-Men franchise, there could of been a chance that might of been FOX.

    I don't see it working the same way we're getting in the MCU. Even in 2014 the MCU had a stronger lineage and constant continuity and flow where any additional elements had to be adapated to fit their style, not the other way around. The X-Men universe even in the Bryan Singer movies doesn't really have that thus there would of likely been much more involvement from Sony in how Spider Man would fit within that universe. Heck we may not of even gotten another reboot and instead just had it where Days of Future Past created a new universe where Amazing Spider Man existed within that time frame and just had a huge team up film between Andrew Garfield's Spider Man and Wolverine with maybe a couple of other X-Men or two. I can't imagine what it would be about or who would direct it but I just imagine that being a jumbled mess due to not having proper producer oversight on the overall project. Since yeah it's clear Sony and Fox can't play at the cinematic universe game like Marvel can. FOX's strength now is more a willingness to go to less family friendly places and still be successful and thus have an edge to them but that isn't going to translate into as many billion dollar franchises. Which is honestly where Sony and FOX may of split down the line anyway if FOX in this what if scenario still had a DP hit as no way Sony would of wanted Spidey to be involved with that since a big part of the character's appeal is to kids so... no Spidey in an R rated movie.
