Drew Goddard to direct Spider-Man spinoff ‘Sinister Six’

- April 8th, 2014

Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) will direct Sony’s Sinister Six Spider-Man spinoff, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The villains-focused film was announced in December as part of Sony’s plan to expand the Spider-Man universe in a similar manner to what Disney has done with other heroes in the Marvel canon.

The Sinister Six are a group of super villains that have battled Spidey in several different iterations. The original group included Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Mysterio, Vulture and Kraven the Hunter.
Next month’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will tease a new group that presumably will include Electro, Rhino, Green Goblin and Alistair Smythe.

Another villain spinoff focusing on Venom is also in the works from Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Ed Solomon. The black-costumed antagonist was played by Topher Grace in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man 3.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 will be released in 2016 and 2018, so Sinister Six could be in theatres by 2017.

In related Spidey news, Sony has announced that fans attending early IMAX screenings of Amazing Spider-Man 2 will receive a limited edition IMAX FANFIX print featuring original artwork by British artist Matt Taylor. The artwork is a collaboration between Sony, Marvel, IMAX and Mondo.
