Should Spider-Man crossover with the MCU Netflix?

So, I just got done seeing Homecoming a couple days ago, and firstly, loved it! Had some flaws (all movies do), but it is now easily my 2nd or 3rd favorite Spider-Mann film. I felt it brought a less monotonous tone to the universe, and it gave a different feeling than their last few films. And that leads me to the question at hand.

SPOILERS, but not terribly big

At the end of the film, Peter tells Tony that he would better not as an Avenger, but rather as a lay low, friendly neighborhood Spider-man, a hero for the little guys. It's a pretty nice moment, and Stark even says it feels like a legit mature moment for him. But to me, this also gave me an idea.

This scene got me thinking that Spider-Man's going to be interacting on a street level scale. Right after the film, I began to think, maybe he could interact with some of the Netflix heroes.

So the question is, Should he crossover with them, should it be film or netflix, and if so, with who should he crossover with? I personally envision a Daredevil/Punisher crossover revolving around the Kingpin, and frankly I feel it would work with whatever. Film for a bigger budget and action, TV for a more street level feel.

Discuss!

For me, I would love to see a crossover for some Netflix stuff, especially Daredevil and Punisher.

For starters, the head cast of Daredevil wants this to happen. Charlie Cox has enthusiastically said wants to team up with Tom Holland because of Matt's and Peter's longtime friendship. He even talked about one of his favorite comics with their friendship. And one needs to recall, Matt Murdock is the first person Peter had ever willingly exposed his heroic identity to. It cemented their friendship.

Now Punisher would be fun to see as well. Not only did Frank Castle start as a Spidey villain, but Tom and John Bernthal practiced gaining their Marvel acting parts by practicing lines on each other. Since they know how to work together, it would be super fun to see the two team up or go head to head.

Lastly, Kingpin was originally a villain of Spidey's so it would be really nice to see the two go head to head. ALso, Peter's presence in Netflix shows would help showcase the two worlds do interact with eachother.

Sadly, I dunno if this will happen because of clashes between Marvel Comics and the MCU

I would die with joy if Spider-Man and Punisher's original fight was ever replicated on screen with Jon Bernthal anticipating his movements and shooting out the web shooters.

@nickzambuto: @itsaworld:

I had no idea that Jon and Tom had practiced with one another, that's awesome.

Would you guys see this going down on Netflix, or on the Silver Screen?

MCU Netflix is too dark for Spiderman. He is like 15. Definitely could not see him hanging with Frank. Maybe Danny because he is basically mentally 15 as well, or Matt.

Netflix. Silver screen would take far longer to film and the actors for the netflix shows have to produce a show. Not to mention that Spidey can just show up for a few episodes before vanishing without too much worry. Then again, it depends on teh plot of film if dont for film or the plot for the tv show

Totally agree with @itsaworld! I personally would love to see Spidey in a scene with innumerable enemies. I could see some 300-type combat going down where Daredevil and Spidey just wipe out dozens of enemies like a boss. If Daredevil happens to do anything in Queens, too, that would be dope if Pete could show up and lend a helping hand.

I actually think Spiderman should have his own Netflix series, kind of really showing the neighborhood Spiderman in between the big movies. I think for what Spiderman does... it could translate just fine to TV be it Netflix or ABC.

@hawk2916: But it would need one heck of a budget.

@shin_leviathan: Maybe... but really no bigger budget than Agents of Shield or the CW shows or that show Halle Berry did on network tv. Spiderman swinging from building to building shouldn't be a huge budget issue

I think it's more likely they'll crossover into the movies rather than Spidey showing up in Daredevil Series 3 or elsewhere. Personally I'm kinda expecting Matt Murdock to cameo in the next Spidey movie but what I'm really hoping is that Kingpin will get to be a villain in a future Spider-Man movie and he'll team up with Daredevil to bring him down for good. Though they might avoid something like that given how dark the Netflix shows are in contrast to the films and even Agents of SHEILD.

So...I guess this isn't going to happen anymore.
