In the recent San Diego Comic-Con, Sony Pictures has released its date plan for not only one, but two “Amazing Spider-Man” films, shuffling the dates of their “Spider-Man” franchise, pushing “Amazing Spider-Man 3” to a late 2018 and slating the spin-off pic entitled “Sinister Six,” named after the featured super villain group of same name, for a Nov. 11, 2016 theatrical release. Still, one question remains on the minds of Spidey fans: Will Spider-Man be part of the film? Read on to learn more on this story.
In an interview with Toronto Sun, “Spider-Man” actor Andrew Garfield was asked if New York’s Webslinger will be participating in a movie about “Spider-Man” villains.
“I know more than I’m allowed to say right now – I can say I’m really excited about Drew Goddard, who’s going to be writing and directing The Sinister Six movie. And whether I’m involved in that or not is kind of immaterial,” explained Garfield to Toronto Sun.
The “Amazing Spider-Man” starred Andrew Garfield in the iconic role of the titular web-head, along with Emma Stone who played Parker’s love interest, Gwen Stacy. It is the fourth “Spider-Man” film produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Entertainment and is a reboot to Sam Raimi’s 2002–2007 “Spider-Man” trilogy. The film was a box office success, grossing over $757 million worldwide while its sequel. The “Amazing Spider-Man 2” featured Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan as villains Electro and the Green Goblin. The sequel grossed over $706 million worldwide.
The Sinister Six was featured in the credits from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” hinting that the Sinister Six will be Doctor Octopus from his tentacles, Vulture from his wings, Green Goblin from his glider, Rhino from his horn, a shield or outfit displayed as a cat believed to be Kraven the Hunter, and an eyeball led to speculation, mostly guessed as Chameleon’s mask, or one of the eyes off of Mysterio’s suit. Director
Marc Webb has since confirmed Kraven and Mysterio as the last two members of the team.
“Sinister Six” will be written and directed by Drew Goddard.
It seems that the “Amazing Spider-Man” star won’t be spilling any information on the film, but his answer suggests, otherwise, we might see his involvement on the said project.
“Exactly – Hence, me not telling you s— about that,” said Garfield.
