The two most obvious theories were that Spider-Man would be crossing over with the Fantastic Four in some way or that Marvel was going to produce a comic book version of Sam Raimi’s abandoned script for Spider-Man 4.

And will this be for something happening in September, as Marvel’s September solicits are set to be released soon?
We’ll know soon.
