The Amazing Spider-man 2 will begin the setup for the Sinister Six movie

03.26.2014

We got our first clear glimpse at the new design of the Green Goblin in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 today and we will surely be seeing a lot more in the future as the release date quickly approaches. But, with the primary villains revealed so far, the question everyone is waiting for an answer to is how will this year's film be leading into the already announced slew of sequels and spin-offs.

In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, we got a direct answer that the fruits of the SINISTER SIX film are coming in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.

“At the tail end of this movie we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six,” says Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal. “We’re going forward on all fronts.” (The studio hasn’t yet announced the exact makeup of its big-screen Sinister Six, but comic book fan Garfield says he personally digs Venom, Doc Ock, Vulture, and Kraven.)

Whether or not Dane DeHaan will be the Goblin we see in future films and spin-offs remains to be seen based on his fate and that of Electro in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, but I would think it is likely that the two of them along with Paul Giamatti's Rhino will be members of the team while Rhys Ifan's Lizard could return as well. That also doesn't even include Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn who will likely return in an unknown capacity.

What it comes down to is that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, more so than Marc Webb's first foray into Peter Parker's origin, will serve as the jumping off point for Sony's mini-Marvel universe. Whether it succeeds will rest on just how good this movie is going to be and it sounds like Sony is pretty damn confident. Hopefully fans will respond in kind.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014 followed by THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 on June 10, 2016 and either the fourth film or one of the spin-offs on May 4th, 2018.

Spidey Vs Sin6 right?

They keep mentioning Sin6 movie will be separate from the Spider-Man numbered series. So we will have Amazing Spider-Man 3, Sinister Six, Amazing Spider-Man 4.... With a Venom movie thrown in somewhere. So I am wondering if Sinister Six will be like an Avengers but just with Spider-Man characters as Sony doesn't own the rights to anyone else.

It could be Black Cat, Spidey and Venom vs Carnage, Electro, Doc Ock, Goblin, Vulture and Rhino. It is the only way it makes sense.

This film worries me. Reeks of trying to do too much at once and risks not being a satisfying spidey movie. That being said it will probably be successfully financially, but I'll wait to see reviews before they get my money.

There's no way you could sent up a good venom movie without first addressing it in a spider-man movie, and since that doesn't seem to be happening here, I'm going to rule it out. Other villains for Sinister Six, maybe it could work. I don't think the studio understands that the non-comic fans who see these superhero films see them b/c they like the hero (Spider-man, Batman, Superman, etc). Without them, there's no way these villain films will make as much as the regular superhero films.

If they can pull this off, then great. Just hopefully the finished quality of Amazing Spider Man 2 doesn't suffer from the film foreshadowing the Sinister Six in the end of the film.

Nah, the finished quality of AS2 will only suffer from a horrible plot, cliche villains and an abundant use of 'tude.

I'm more interested in these planned sequels than I am the new one. Feels like I've seen the whole thing and there's nothing really all that new or exciting about it.

Given that we see Doc Ock's tentacles and Vulture's wings in the trailer, it's safe to assume they're both going to be a part of the Sinister Six. I'm assuming the remaining members will be Rhino, Electro, Lizard, and Green Goblin (Norman). Unless Lizard unites with Spider-Man then I could easily see Harry being the second goblin of the group or the possible inclusion of the mysterious figure at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man.

Kraven & Venom please!!

It really does beg the question as to who the antagonist would be... @AlexBlue, I can see that making sense, but who would the bigger villain be? Maybe Roxxon...?

Find a way to Co-Produce with Disney.

Also, Spider-Man was in various forms of The Avengers in the comic right?! Can Disney use him for the Avengers movie.

I sense that Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti won't be returning for the Sinister Six movie and that Electro and Rhino will most likely be recast

Not recast, their characters just will not be in the Sin6. The rumored Sin6 list is: Goblin, Doc Ock, Carnage, Vulture, Lizard, Kraven. But you can take out Lizard and put in Electro depending on who wants to return.
