10 Awesome Fan Theories That Improve The Spider-Man Films
10. Peter Parker's Parents Worked For S.H.I.E.L.D. (The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens with a flashback scene involving the deaths of Richard and Mary Parker - Peter Parker's parents - as the pair are assassinated on board a private jet. Richard had previously been revealed to be a scientist working for Oscorp and was transferring a file called 'Project Roosevelt' whilst on the flight. The co-pilot had revealed himself as an assassin and attempted to abort the transfer, but Richard succeeded in transferring it prior to his death. Given that Richard was obviously doing something that was frowned upon, a fan theory states that perhaps he (and possibly his wife) had been working undercover for S.H.I.E.L.D. in order to extract information from Oscorp. It would be a cool potential link to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if that was the case.
