** A script treatment was leaked online by [[http://forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=464583 an insider on the SuperHeroHype forums who was proven to be reliable]], and goes in-depth into the proposed outline for the eventually-scrapped film. In it, Peter cheats on MJ with Felicia Hardy (the "Vulturess", played by Creator/AnneHathaway) while working to stop The Vulture (to be played by Creator/JohnMalkovich) and Electro. At the end, MJ abandons him and goes to Los Angeles, while Peter decides, out of depression, to once again give up being Spider-Man. Notably, this treatment shares some elements that would eventually be included in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' (including the character of Max Dillon and his transformation into Electro).

** There was a notably huge web campaign for [[Music/ChildishGambino Donald Glover]] to play or, at least, audition for "Peter Parker/Spider-Man" which allegedly spawned after fans posted and retweeted #donald4spiderman on various forums. This became hotly debated as many, including Creator/StanLee himself, were all for Glover to play Spidey while others were, at best, not too comfortable with Peter Parker getting a RaceLift. Though Glover never got a call to audition, this all resulted in the creation of ComicBook/MilesMorales to which Glover later voiced in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan''. Glover also later appeared in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse as Aaron Davis in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.
