Amazing Spider-man director Marc Webb has said that once he’s helmed the third in the series, he’s planning to leave the franchise behind. However Sony have big plans to create an entire Spidey world, including a Sinister Six spin-off.
Now that movie has a director, as Variety reports that Drew Goddard is close to signing a deal to direct The Sinister Six, a spin-off of its The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Cabin In The Woods director Goddard agreed to write the super-villain adventure back in December, but it’s only now that he’s concluding negotiations to direct.
It isn’t known exactly known which villains will be included in The Sinister Six, although Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal recently suggested the major characters will be introduced at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The original version of The Sinister Six in the comics featured Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Mysterio, Vulture and Kraven the Hunter, but there have been all sorts of line-ups for this villainous group over the years.
Sinister Six isn’t the only spin-off in the works, as Sony is also working on a Venom movie.
