The Sinister Six movie might not be a tradition villain team up. Ever since Sony announced that they are going to make more Spider-Man related movies, everyone has been wondering how they were going to do a Sinister Six movie.
“When you translate comic to film the word ‘classic’ means the first fifty issues. Because after that we all made changes; changes that had to do with science-fiction turning into science. I think just the need to move this world forward.”
“So, of course we’ll make adaptations about these guys and what was their motivations because many of them have multiple motivations. It depends, is it ultimate Spider-Man? Is it Spider-Man? Is it some three-piece issue that takes them to space? We have a bigger responsibility to represent the character of the villain as it was conceived, because that way it will survive the test of time. All the rest… that’s a movie. What an opportunity to make — can you imagine seeing Paul Giamatti in a leather suit? I think they would have killed us. They gave us a hard time with the Lizard.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already has Rhino, Electro and Green Goblin in movie. We have been teased with Doc Ock’s arms and Vulture’s wings. Granted the original team was Doc Ock, Vulture, Electro, Mysterio, Sandman, and Kraven the Hunter. Members of the team have changed over time. If they are going with a slightly different approach then they might change who the members of the team are.
Personally I don’t think it will make a difference if they don’t use all the original members and change some of them up. It would make more sense for them to use the villains that they have already established to continue the story line. Us fans we do get crazy about these things and wanting everything to be true to the original story, I have been like that before. I know there will be fans out there who want the original group of villains.
Should they stick with the original members or will changing some of the members of the Sinister Six not really matter?
Have you heard the latest Spiderman rumor? Sony is planning to release a new Spiderman movie every year. I know there were already talks of possibly doing four Spiderman movies with Andrew Garfield. Is that what they are talking about?
No, Sony Co-Chairman Amy Pascal has confirmed that they are working on releasing spin-off movies about Venom and the Sinister Six.
I don’t know about the rest of you but I remember Venom from Spiderman 3 (yes, I know we would all like to forget that movie ever existed), well Venom was not well written. Maybe with a new writing team Venom might be done in a better way but I just don’t know how a Venom movie on its own is going to do. Venom is an interesting character since it can exist on anyone, mainly Eddie Brock. I am not sure if it would be a Venom origin story or if it will Venom life after Spiderman kind of thing.
They are also working on developing a Sinister Six movie, which is teased to in the Amazing Spiderman 2 trailers. The Sinister Six consists of; Doctor Octopus, Sandman (another failed character from Spiderman 3), Electro, the Vulture, Mysterio, and Kraven. A movie done from the point of view of the villains would actually be fascinating since that has never been done before. I am not sure how this movie would not include Spiderman in some way because these are known Spiderman villains.
It has already been announced that Alex Katzman who wrote Star Trek will direct Venom. The Cabin in the Wood’s writer/director Drew Goddard will write the Sinister Six movie, he might also direct it.
I am not sure how I feel about this; it really feels like they are trying to compete with Disney. Disney has, been doing a great job of releasing a new Marvel movie every year. I am not sure how well that is going to work, I am just not sure Sony is going to be able to achieve the same success that Disney has had with it. Disney is special; they can do things most other normal pictures houses cannot do. Sony would probably just be better off doing the Spiderman movies and leaving it there.
What do you think, will a Venom and Sinister Six movies succeed or will they fail?
