Sinister Six Will Be the Next Spider-Man Film; AMS3 Coming in 2018!

Sinister Six My enthusiasm for Columbia Pictures’ “Spidey-verse” evaporated with the abomination that was Amazing Spider-Man 2.  AMS 2 is also the lowest-grossing movie in the franchise’s history, but that isn’t stopping them from pushing ahead, though it seems it has shaken up their release schedule.

Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six movie, featuring the villains in Spider-Man’s rogues gallery, will be the next film released and not Amazing Spider-Man 3.  Perhaps they decided they needed to retool after the AMS2 backlash, or maybe Goddard was just more ready to go, but Sinister Six will release November 11, 2016.  The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018 (four years is a long time for a hero supposedly in his teens; wonder what kind of time jump in the story they’ll take).  No word on the rumored Venom spin-off film.

I was done with this all after AMS2, but might be tempted back if Goddard can right the ship with a unique film from the villains’ perspective.
