    Second of all, if Sony and Marvel can work on sharing Spidey in the movies, why not go one step further and introduce some of his characters and/or history on ABC's "Agents of SHIELD"? Peter Parker's parents were SHIELD agents in the comics. Imagine the plot lines the show could do by exploring the Parker parents' time as SHIELD agents or having Phil Coulson and his team meet up with the staff of the Daily Bugle, or even meet up with some of Spider-Man's enemies like Chameleon, Sandman or Shocker. You can give the villains back stories on the show before they fight Spidey in the movies, thus tying in to both the solo "Spider-Man" film(s) AND the "Sinister Six" spin-off. Heck, you could even show the SHIELD agents encountering a symbiote from outer space to tie into the Spidey films, the Venom film AND giving us more of the cosmic side of Marvel. The possibilities on that front are endless and not entirely impossible. After all, they worked out a movie deal, so why not TV too? It'd be a win-win for both studios and all their movies.

AOS is actually a really good show right now despite a really clunky start. But I doubt they'd get any good Spider-Man villains and they're doing a lot of good with that they're using right now.

They're already doing world building between AOS and Agent Carter and it'd be really odd to have these two high ranking SHIELD agents all of a sudden thrown in there that Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers, Phil Coulson and Nick Fury have never ever mentioned before.

I've also often found that part one of the most eye rolling parts of Spider-Man's history. It just comes out of nowhere, it doesn't really add anything to Peter's background, it raises a bunch of questions, and just seems weird. It seems like Stan and Larry were BSing around the office and they just ran out of ideas and Larry just blurted out "Hey, let's do a story about Peter's parents" and Stan just went straight to "secret agents! Battling the Red Skull!"

I think it can be done well. Bendis very intentionally has a lot of "everything is connected" going on in his Ultimate Universe stuff, more so earlier in the run than now. But in 616 context, I always found Peter's super spy parents to be just weird.
