In the world of comic book films there are many that have amazed us as well disappointed us and there are still more to come to show us what they have to offer. We even have noticed remakes or reboots of original comic book films like Batman, Captain America, The Hulk and most were great and the 2012 reboot of "Spider-Man" of 2002 titled, "The Amazing Spider-Man" was indeed one of those great films.
When I first heard of the Spider-Man reboot I was a little worried about how this film was going to turn out to the reason I enjoyed the original series and thought they were well done, except for the third, which was somewhat okay.

With the success of the 2012 film "The Avengers" Marvel has stated they would indeed create a sequel to the film to bring more action and possibly more superheroes to the big screen.
With the sequel underway the question we ask ourselves is if any other heroes are to come in which heroes should join the Avengers. Though most will say we want Spider-Man to become a part of the Avengers, due to his great performance in "The Amazing Spider-Man," I thought of a man that would be a better fit to join forces with the Avengers and that is none other than former X-Men, Wolverine.
