During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Drew Goddard suggested that the previously planned Sinister Six Spider-Man spinoff could still happen.
Before Marvel Studios and Sony made the landmark agreement that would bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the latter studio began developing plans for their own cinematic universe set in the world of Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man film series. Among the projects being developed was a Sinister Six film and while plans for the supervillain team-up movie fell through after the aforementioned deal, Drew Goddard stated that the project could still happen in the future:
“It was really fun. I wouldn’t have done it had I not thought there was a real opportunity to do something different and exciting and just flat-out bananas. It was very much me and — a much more commercial version of — the Cabin mentality. The punk rock mentality that led to Cabin is very much at the core of Sinister Six. That’s a fun one. Who knows, it could see the light of day. It’s funny, I’ve been through a lot of volatility at a lot of different studios. Between MGM and Sony and Fox. At a certain point, you start to realize, “Oh, this is just a volatile business” and you try to stay afloat as the boat rocks back and forth.”
Meanwhile, Sony kicked-off a cinematic universe of Marvel characters with Venom.
Venom follows Eddie Brock as he attempts to revive his journalism career by investigating the Life Foundation only to come into with an alien symbiote that bonds with him, granting him powers and transforming him into the titular anti-hero.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script written by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.
Venom will be released in theaters on October 5, 2018.
