After roughly seven years, Sony might be trying to get the Sinister Six on the big screen again! The Sinister Six have yet to appear in a Spider-Man franchise. Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy never showed interest in the Sinister Six. The Amazing-Spider-Man series got canceled before it could show the Sinister team in action. However, the third time’s the charm, right?
Now, Deadline’s Hero Nation Podcast (via TheDirect) has reported what Sony has planned for The Sinister Six. It seems as though they are determined to build up the team once again. This time with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Deadline’s Anthony D’Alessandro said this:
“Because Sony’s always kept, outside of the current Spider-Man stuff they’re doing with the Disney MCU, Sony’s always kept their Marvel stuff separate, and with this Venom, they’re actually going to connect to the Spider-Man universe [that’s being set-up with the] Disney MCU. So that’s very interesting. I know one of their long-term goals is to make Sinister Six. That’s kinda the project we’re all waiting for; their version of the bad guys from the Spider-Man [universe].”
Sinister Six Members
Therefore, we all want to know which villains Sony will have in this version of the Sinister Six. The original Sinister Six team from the comics included: Electro, Sandman, Mysterio, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter, and Doctor Octopus. Sony will likely change a few members of the Sinister Six to suit the story better. For instance, Sony already has Venom, Morbius, Kraven, and possibly Chameleon in their films. MCU already set up Vulture, Scorpion, and Shocker. It is unclear if Sony wants to use multiversal villains like in Spider-Man No Way Home or newly established villains.
Regardless, fans should be excited that Sony is incorporating the Sinister Six and even a potential Sinister Six standalone movie!
