Prior to Heath Ledger’s mesmerizing portrayal of The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, Molina’s Doc Ock was a strong contender for the greatest comic book baddie in cinematic history. However, as time has passed, the Spider-man franchise has slowly started to wither and lose the quality of its predecessors (as The Amazing Spider-man 2 proved). Now, as a method of maintaining interest and originality in the aging film series, Sony are paving the way for a number of spin-offs in the near future. The first of these spin-offs is Drew Goddard’s villain-orientated Sinister Six, which is set for release in November 2016.
With the villainous super-team gearing up to take over »

Sneak Peek a new teaser introducing the "Sinister Six", a developing "Spider-Man" spin-off feature, focusing on a group of 'Spider-Man' villains, to be released November 11, 2016, written/directed by Drew Goddard ("Cabin In The Woods"), based on classic Marvel Comics characters created by writer Stan Lee and co-plotter, illustrator Steve Ditko:
The original incarnation of the group was organized by 'Doctor Octopus' and first appeared in "The Amazing Spider-Man Annual" #1 (January 1964).
"...'Doctor Octopus' contacts every known enemy of 'Spider-Man', but only 'Vulture', 'Electro', 'Kraven the Hunter', 'Mysterio' and 'Sandman' respond. Knowing he'd never be able to keep the team together, Doc Ock formulates a battle plan in which each individual member of the 'Sinister Six' would battle Spider-Man in a carefully chosen location. Spider-Man himself had his own problems, as he had somehow lost his powers and prepared to return to normal life as a teenager. »

It's not much, but a trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD has some Sinister Six hints...
The next film to land in the Spider-Man movie universe is now set to be the Sinister Six spin-off film, that Drew Goddard is writing and directing. Goddard is working on that now, aiming for a release date of November 11th 2016.
There's already been a little bit a tease towards the film towards the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earlier in the summer. But as that film heads to DVD and Blu-ray, a trailer for the disc in the Us has been dropping more hints. In short, if you buy the film from Target in the States, you're getting a Sinister Six bonus disc, which we'd imagine will drop even more hints. It's not as if they've not started plugged the hashtag.
Here's that trailer...
The Us release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 »
Fans who purchase Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at their local Target will receive a special bonus disc as part of the package – one giving them an early glimpse at Drew Goddard's The Sinister Six. The villainous sextet is prepping for their upcoming film, and this teaser for the bonus disc gives us an early glimpse of the baddies in action. While most of the footage is just stuff culled from earlier Spider-Man films, and doesn’t reveal who the official Sinister Six will be, comic detectives can possibly find a hint or two in the photo above. In that still, Marc Webb is standing in front of a bunch of concept art. You see stuff that belongs to Doc Ock, Vulture and that mysterious head in the container. What could that possibly be...

Gavin Logan looks at which directors could be in line for a Star Wars movie….
It’s now been almost two years since Disney officially acquired LucasFilm and with it the rights to the Star Wars universe. George Lucas said in his statement that he always believed that Star Wars could live beyond him and that the time was right for the torch to be passed to a new generation of filmmakers. First up was J.J. Abrams, fresh off his successful reboot of Star Trek. Abrams, while not exactly young and new to the industry, has a certain Spielberg-esque quality about the way he makes movies and seemed like the perfect fit for relaunching the Star Wars franchise. Once Abrams was nailed down and he and Lawrence Kasdan began reworking Michael Arndt’s script, little or no other details were announced despite incessant rumours flying around the internet.

DC have been criticised for failing to bring Wonder Woman a solo film, despite it being in development ever since Lynda Carter pulled her star spangled briefs on. Marvel have been vaunted for bringing out a movie with a talking tree and raccoon before DC even managed a superhero film with a female lead, but they’ve failed at that task too – seriously, where is our Black Widow film? Or do we just need to close our eyes and pretend that’s what Lucy is? Looks like it’s up to Sony’s to bat for women superheroes with another one of those Amazing Spider-Man spin-off flicks they’re so fond of announcing.
We’ve already got a Sinister Six film, directed by Drew Goddard, slated for release in 2016 (although we’re still at a loss as to how that’s gonna work without Spidey, unless it’s »

It's all about the Spider-Man spin-offs as new details emerge about The Sinister Six, as well as news that Sony’s Venom movie is to be entitled Venom Carnage. That supposed title would suggest the involvement of Cletus Kasady (Aka the psychopathic Carnage) in Alex Kurtzman’s new film, although no plot details have been officially confirmed as yet. Meanwhile, new information has also emerged regarding Drew Goddard’s The Sinister Six, which is said to position Doctor Octopus as the leader of the newly-assembled team of super-villains. ...

It looks like both the Venom spin-off, and a female-headlined superhero film from the Spider-Man universe will land in 2017.
It sounds as if Sony is finally piecing together plans for its mooted Spider-Man cinematic universe, as a couple more projects are slotted into place. Thus far, we know that the Sinister Six spin-off, that Drew Goddard is writing and directing, is due in 2016. Furthermore, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018.
Sony is planning two more Spider-Man spin-off films for 2017 as well. One of them is the Venom fillm, that Alex Kurtzman remains attached to direct (in spite of his commitment to The Mummy reboot, which he's also helming, and arrives the year before). That's currently going by the name of Venom Carnage.
However, the project that's already getting the most attention is a female-headlined spin-off.
Given the calls for a superhero movie headlined by a woman, Sony »
Sony is reportedly planning to make a Spider-Man spinoff with a female superhero for 2017.
"I think it comes down to timing, which is what I've sort of always said, and it comes down to us being able to tell the right story. I very much believe in doing it," he told Cbr.
"I very much believe that it's unfair to say, 'People don't want to see movies with female heroes,' then list five movies that were not very good, »
Marvel Studios left their hordes of fans a bit disappointed after their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, not only because they didn’t talk about any upcoming Phase Three projects beyond Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but because they also didn’t turn any of the spotlight toward their upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix.
They did announce that the show will hit the streaming service in May 2015, but beyond that we got no plot details or images from the highly anticipated series. It is, however, currently filming in Brooklyn under the codename “Bluff,” giving impatient fans the opportunity to take matters into their own hands and snap a few photos from the set.
We unfortunately don’t have any shots of The Man Without Fear in costume (my guess is Marvel will release an official image before they risk that particular detail from leaking), but »

Earlier today, it was announced that Sony Pictures is planning a female-led superhero movie based within the The Amazing Spider-Man universe for release in 2017. This is all part of the studio's attempt to get their Marvel franchise back on the right track. Now comes word that they are also prepping their previously announced Venom stand-alone adventure for 2017, and that it will be called Venom Carnage.
This is in reference to iconic Marvel character Carnage, a serial killer known as Cletus Kasady who merged with the offspring of the alien symbiote called Venom during a prison breakout. It sounds like Venom and Carnage will either team-up, or go head-to-head in a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice style fight to the death. No plot details have been released at this time.
While it has not been confirmed that this movie will be released in 2017 alongside a female-centric stand-alone movie featuring either Black Cat, »
Sony's got a tough road ahead of them. One of the most depressing but predictable things to happen this weekend was the backlash that has already begun regarding Sony's idea to possibly make a woman-driven "Ghostbusters." While I'm used to seeing knee-jerk reactionary responses from people who show up in comments sections, I was taken aback by Mike Fleming's response on Deadline. If he meant it as a joke, it's tone deaf, and if he's serious, then he's more of a caveman than I expected. At this point, I feel like I've turned a corner in terms of my own feelings about casting, especially when it comes to these big fanboy properties. I am fully onboard at this point for disruption of the status quo. Female Thor? Great. Black Spider-Man? Bring it on. An all-female Ghostbusters team? Suit up, ladies, and let's see what you've got.

Ever since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed a mere $700 million worldwide, Sony has been shifting its plans for a Spidey-centric mega-franchise. Amazing Spider-Man 3 moved to 2018, a delay that would seem to scotch the previously announced Amazing Spider-Man 4. In its place, Sony fast-tracked The Sinister Six, a spin-off focused on Spidey’s nemesis superteam, to be helmed by Cabin in the Woods’ Drew Goddard. And now there’s an even more intriguing project in development: EW has confirmed the Deadline report that Sony is developing a Spider-Man spin-off starring a female superhero. This would be the first female-superhero comic book »

Deadline reports some interesting news that Sony has hired Lisa Joy Nolan to write the screenplay of a female led-film in the universe of The Amazing Spider-Man. This news comes after recent developments that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018. Sony has been planning to create their own Avengers-style cinematic universe with The Amazing Spider-Man, with planned Sinister Six and Venom spinoffs, but after the less than positive critical response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it being the lowest grossing Spider-Man film to date at $707 million (good for Spider-man, but not great), Sony is currently retooling their plans.
Though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may be the series the character deserves and doesn’t instill much confidence in the franchise going further, it is exciting to hear that we’re getting a female-centric superhero film. Though many backwards-thinking folk may cite Catwoman and Elektra for reasons why »

Earlier today we shared news about a female Spider-Man spinoff, and judging by the comments and reaction around the Internet today, it’s going to be a hard sell. We have more news from the Spider-Man universe regarding the Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six which is set for a November 11, 2016 release. Reports suggest that Dr. Octopus will be in charge of the villains appearing in the film. I say villains because they get shifted around from time to time in the comics, and they »

Huge changes apparently are afoot in Sony.s Spider-Man galaxy, ones that likely will affect the webslinger.s cinematic adventures for years to come. As we reported earlier, Sony now plans to drop a female-centric Spider-Man story in between Drew Goddard.s Sinister Six movie (slated for November 2016) and the third The Amazing Spider-Man film (which will drop in 2018). This female-driven character film will arrive in 2017, continuing the studio.s desired trend of having a Spider-Man-type film in theaters every year, on the year. That plan includes Venom, though now he.s apparently bringing a friend. Buried near the bottom of Deadline.s extensive piece regarding changes happening in the Spider-Man universe comes the news that the Venom movie . which still is expected to be directed by Alex Kurtzman . will now be a Venom and Carnage movie. Hoo boy. So that can of worms has been opened now. Let's talk »
