And if this news wasn't enough, Sony showed a clip of the upcoming film at the convention which showed the teenager coming home to find his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) speaking with Tony Stark as Ironman, of the Robert Downey Jr. kind!

The merging of superheroes tales suggests that a deal has been struck between Sony and Marvel to integrate the characters.
