The Sinister Six set for 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 pushed to 2018!

Jul. 23, 2014by:

Ever since THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 failed to match expectation at the box office (it’s currently the lowest grossing of all the Spider-Man movies) there has been a lot of chatter about director Drew Goddard’s THE SINISTER SIX and another AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 sequel and whether or not they would see the light of day. Well, have no fear, we have movies for years!

Sony has just announced firm release dates for both the villain spinoff THE SINISTER SIX and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 will be pushed one year to May 4th, 2018 and THE SINISTER SIX release date will be November 11th, 2016. That’s not a bad idea considering they may want to correct some wrongs with the Spider-Man series and come back with vengeance.

Sony is said to very happy with Drew Goddard's take on THE SINISTER SIX; I would expect nothing less from the writer/director of THE CABIN IN THE WOODS.

Are you optimistic about the changes? What can they do to fix Spider-Man 3?

I really liked the Amazing Spider-Man films, I think Marc Webb is kicking ass as the creative force behind the franchise. I honestly don't understand all of the hate for the movies lately, I think they're pretty good (not great).

Digging Out of a Hole

TASM 2 may have been one of the worst comic movies of all time. It may belong on the Mount Rushmore of garbage franchise killers with Batman and Robin, Elektra, Catwoman and Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer. My friends sad not even did they think it was terrible, their kids thought it blew. And they are like 5. I only went to see it because I had a free ticket for Regal Cinemas, and midway I felt I still overpaid because I wasted gas to get there. I have no faith in what they want to do

At this point I don't really care. ASM and ASM2 made it loud and clear that Sony isn't interested in making Spider-Man films that are enjoyable, self-contained or fun. They'd rather over-stuff a film with more characters and set-up for the next chapter than tell something good NOW.

I thought 'The Amazing Spider-Man' films were good, I don't understand all of the hate. I personally want Sony to keep doing what they're doing.

I don't understand this project at all. It's a Spider-Man movie without Spider-Man? Why? Who wants to see that? I mean, frankly, I'm all for less Andrew Garfield on our screens, but at what cost?

TASM2 was a complete waste of time, money and effort. A 2hr20m movie turned into a 1hr40m love story and took on all 3 villains seperately in a 40 min time span after that. What a complete crock of shit. At this time I don't give a fuck about any future Spidey movies or his villains.

I really don't get the hate for the new Spider-Man movies, I really enjoyed the both of them. Are they without flaws, of course not, but what movie is. Im happy that Sony is committed to bringing us a Spider-Man universe, and im sure they will continue to improve. People need to stop acting like Marvel is the only company capable of doing their characters justice, like they're perfect and can do no wrong. Their movies have plenty of flaws themselves. This is a great time to be a comic book fan,

"Sony is said to very happy with Drew Goddard's take on THE SINISTER SIX"

Well, Sony was also very happy with Amazing Spider Man 1 and 2 and look how badly those two films turned out to be. Maybe Goddard will make this movie a decent time, but after the very two first disappoint rebooted films, I'm no longer caring very much about this new franchise.

Yet you have a avatar from the shittest superhero movie made since X3. ASM 1 and 2 are leagues better then Green Lantern dude, and sure as hell not poorly made films.

Wait, sinister 6 is before Spidey 3? Is Spidey in it? If not, they kind of have to do a suicide squad story, right? But what's so odd is they are going to have to create most of the villains and show their origins in one film, instead of having one or two in a film, and eventually coming all together. This is going to be a weird one

I have a hard time believing Marvel Studios would even be able to reverse the ill will that this franchise created towards the Spider-Man character. If the rights ever did revert they would probably sit on the character for quite a bit of time.

It makes sense to me why they created the Marvel Studios graphic with the new fan fare in front of their movies. Does the general public notice the difference? Maybe in time they will.

So does that mean the solo venom movies has been dropped? If so, that is great news. No reason to do a venom movie without Spider-man.

I take it that's the maximum amount of time they can take between movies without loosing the rights. That's ok with for 2 reasons, more time to get their act together (try having a finished script before shooting?) and 2nd, it increases the chances of Marvel getting Spidey back. Push production back as late as possible and then have production problems means goodbye.

y'know one of the things that really annoys me about this site is the over-excitement from the writers on things like this. I mean look at the strikeback rating average... your audience isn't as excited for this as you are hoping we will be. I'm sure you want to be in good with the studio but not every bit of comic book news has to be exclamated over. Hire more cynical writers, dammit. It's a loosing battle on my part though.. let the hype machine begin!!!

Money grabbing silliness. Trying to create a cinematic universe out of one hero and his villains seems like a desperate studio move to compete with those who have more characters. Making these movies doesn't feel like a creative decision at all. It's all about the dollars and nothing more. My money stays in my pocket. I know when I'm being had.

Say what you will about ASM2 but this a much better move than just rushing out a third movie. They should have done this the first time around and taken their time with Amazing Spidey 2.

Plus Drew Goddard doing an 'Anti-Avengers' movie with a team of supervillains sounds like a blast to me.

"Everything was going according to plan for the Sinister Six until, in the movie's closing moments, Spider-Man finally showed up and threw a manhole cover straight at the cameraman."

It's the Sinister Six Plus One, AKA the Sinister Seven, hoping to catch Spider-Man off-guard with an extra face to punch?

So can someone please explain.....

Exactly what a "Sinister Six" movie is? Does that mean it's the villains without a hero? If Spiderman's the hero, why isn't that Spiderman 3? I keep hearing this talk about the movie, but nobody explains what the point is.....

They haven't released an exact plot yet, but I'm not sure what's so hard to understand. There have been heist films and gangster movies, why not a supervillain movie.
