Sony Rejected Marvel Studios' Crossover

Well Marvel Studios was kind enough to help out Sony but it seems they didn't need help at all. This all comes from the recent hacking of Sony, which had some surprising info on Spidey.
According to The Wall Street Journal, emails to and from Sony’s motion picture chief Amy Pascal have been released which reveal discussions between her, various Sony executives, and Marvel/Walt Disney owner Robert Iger among others. In one dated October 30th, "Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad tells Ms. Pascal about a potential scenario that would see Marvel produce a new trilogy of Spider-Man movies while Sony retains 'creative control, marketing and distribution.'" In another, Pascal tells a business partner that Marvel want to include Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, a series which saw the character reveal his identity to the world.
Sadly, these talks apparently broke down, and a "Spidey Summit" is planned for January which will see Sony decide where to take the franchise next. According to the site, "Among projects in development are an animated Spider-Man comedy that would be produced by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the team behind “22 Jump Street” and “The Lego Movie,” as well as previously disclosed Spider-Man spin-offs focused on villain team Sinister Six, super-foe Venom, and women from the webslinger’s life." So, Spider-Man could have become part of the MCU...thoughts?
