Venom or Sinister Six coming in 2018, not The Amazing Spider-man 4

Apr. 10, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Sony announced THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 would be followed by two sequels in 2016 and 2018 but now seems to be changing that tune in light of the spin-off films they have announced more recently. Specifically, both THE SINISTER SIX and VENOM are getting their own films with Drew Goddard already signed to write and direct the villain team-up picture. It now looks like this change may, in fact, alter what we expected to be the future of the franchise after the third film in the series.

Speaking with Den of Geek producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach stated that while Marc Webb will return for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3, slated for release on May 27, 2016, the director's statement that he will not return for the fourth film has changed the studio's plan.

"Before we know what we do with Spider-Man 4, we're going to do Sinister Six, Venom and Spider-Man 3. There is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies. So we're just not at Spider-Man 4, because we still have a whole other Spider-Man movie and two other movies. So we don't know yet what [Spider-Man 4] is going to be"

Tolmach further clarified that the May 4, 2018 date will be for a "Spider-man" movie but not necessarily an AMAZING SPIDER-MAN movie. Does this mean that we will be getting another reboot four years from now? Or is he simply teasing that THE SINISTER SIX or VENOM will be hitting that year?

Either way it goes, if Sony is planning to release the spin-offs before THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 4, the eventual production for that film will be past a viable age for Andrew Garfield, meaning either a new Spider-man will need to be cast or another character will need to take over the costume from Peter Parker. There is a precedent for that in the comics, but will fans want to see it on the big screen?

In the meantime, we can all try to enjoy THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 which hits screens on May 2nd.

Tom Hanks for Doc Ock.

He wants to play a villain in a comic book film and I think he would do a great job with the character.

I personally think Hanks would make for a better Dr Curt Connors/The Lizard but I guess that's not gonna happen unless they reboot again

I still don't understand the Sinister Six movie...

Is it a spiderman movie? How can they make a movie about the sinister six, without spiderman? It would be cool if they made it about the sinister six characters and how they come together, but it will be boring if they don't fight Spiderman.

So does anyone know what the sinister six movie will be about?

I think the best course of action for the Sinister Six movie is for Spidey to mutate into Man Spider. This would free Andrew Garfield of actually appearing in the film except for maybe a cameo. Then you have the villains joining up because that's the only way to take him down.

I think that actually sounds quite interesting and plausible.

Hand Spidey back to Marvel

Please Sony, please..... hand this franchise back to Marvel. Ever since letting Raimi go it's been terrible.

The whole reason they rebooted the series so soon with The Amazing Spider-Man is so they could hang tightly onto the Spidey franchise with grabby, grabby hands.

Agreed. I would love to see Spiderman join the Avengers or even a Spidey-Hulk crossover would be epic.

Sadly, we have this shitty hipster trash ruining our Spider-Man. This is easily 10x worse than the Raimi movies (which the first two are considered the goto Spidey movies)

I think it might be a good idea to gradually introduce Miles Morales to switch things up a little.

So wait, what's the deal with Sinister Six, if it doesn't involve spider-man himself. Is it just a bunch of villains going on a crime spree or something? I don't get it

Some fans have said they could easily go the Reservoir Dogs route where it's more of a character study on different levels of villainy and how ultimately the team turn on each other one by one. I'm confident Goddard has figured out something since Cabin of the Woods combined, brilliantly, different horror elements.

That picture of Venom is much better than the designs of any of the Villains in this new series. They got the look right, just too bad they only used that look for 2 minutes of screen time in Spider-man 3.
Anyway, seems pointless to do a Sinister Six movie without know if Spider-man 4 will happen.

With the initial reviews of Spiderman 2 being horrendous it will be interesting to see if the franchise holds enough that they even get to the spinoffs. I know Sony is desperate to hold on to the rights and copy what Marvel has been able to do with a widespread film universe, but if a horrible movie can derail arguably the most popular film super hero like Batman then Spidey won't fare better with his own Batman and Robin if the reviews are true.

It has an 85% on Rotten Tomatoes with 11 fresh and 2 rotten, so I have no idea what you're talking about when you say the initial reviews have been horrendous for TASM2. Most critics agree it's not necessarily ground breaking, but acts more like an introductory to more characters to come down the line (very similar to Iron Man 2), but not as bad as Spider-Man 3.

Betting it's Sinister Six

With the recent announcement of the director, I'm sure the logical step is to have him shot the film sometime in Fall 2016 with a Summer 2018 release. Unless they release two spin-off films in one year.
