Even though many figured there was no doubt the planned Sony ‘Sinister Six’ spinoff would not happen after Marvel and Sony’s blockbuster Spidey deal, Drew Goddard has said that the Sinister Six film could still happen after all, if Marvel wanted it.
Speaking with io9, Goddard revealed some interesting things about the adaptation he developed. According to his comments, Marvel could still potentially make his Sinister Six film, because of how he wrote it. Goddard said:
“My vision of that movie was a summer annual, so you didn’t have to worry about continuity. It was just, ‘We take Peter, put him on an adventure, we put him back in his life.’ I intentionally wanted a movie that didn’t have to worry about mythology and continuity. It was important to me to make a movie that could stand on its own. So the good news is, you know, it slots in very well to any plan anybody ever wants. We just need to let a couple years go by, I think.”
Even though it seemed like a foregone conclusion ‘Sinister Six’ would not happen, it seems like there’s hope for the villainous team-up after all. If DC’s ‘Suicide Squad’ becomes a smash-hit, a ‘Sinister Six’ adaptation would actually make a lot of sense.
