Story by Jack Foley
NOT content with spinning one inter-connected multi-film franchise, Marvel has unveiled plans for another.
The Amazing Spider-Man is to get spin-off movies in the form of Sinister Six and Venom, both of which will be released before The Amazing Spider-Man 4.
Confirming the news to Den of Geek, Amazing Spider-Man 2 producer Matt Tolmach said that the villain-focused spin-offswill be released ahead of The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which had initially been slotted for May 7, 2018.
He said: “Before we know what we do with Spider-Man 4, we’re going to do Sinister Six, Venom and Spider-Man 3 [and] there is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies.
“So, we’re just not at Spider-Man 4 because we still have a whole other Spider-Man movie and two other movies. So we don’t know yet what [Spider-Man 4] is going to be.”
Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be released on May 27, 2016, with Marc Webb once again returning to the director’s chair.
Drew Goddard is curretly in talks to direct Sinister Six from his own script, while Venom is to be directed by Alex Kurtzman from a screenplay written by Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Ed Solomon. As yet, no release dates have been set for either of these two releases.
