Earlier this week, Sony Pictures revealed that they have formed a braintrust consisting of Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, Drew Goddard and Marc Webb to create a larger universe for The Amazing Spider-Man. As well as confirming the release of a third instalment of that franchise, the studio are moving ahead with Venom (written by Kurtzman, Orci and Solomon with Kurtzman directing) and The Sinister Six from writer/director Drew Goddard.

While a movie starring Venom has been on the cards for years now, a spin-off featuring The Sinister Six is definitely an unexpected decision, and it's hard to imagine the direction that such a story will be taken in. So, how do you guys feel about Sony's plans? A lame Marvel Studios rip-off or a clever way of expanding Spider-Man's Cinematic Universe? here's your chance to decide...

Not interested in any of those characters, even if it's kinda cool that Sony is putting emphasis on villains.
TheDarkLord - 12/14/2013, 1:18 PM
I'm looking forward to this!
CaptainObvious - 12/14/2013, 1:19 PM
It's becoming so hard to actually care about anything Spider-Man-related anymore.
mk - 12/14/2013, 1:20 PM
interesting but pretty much wait and see
DarthOptimus - 12/14/2013, 1:21 PM
Just hope they do Venom right this time, one of my favorite characters ever.
devil - 12/14/2013, 1:23 PM
who cares about this spiderman universe its doom to fall. its not apart of the m.c.u when there rebooted it it should had been apart of the mcu
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 12/14/2013, 1:24 PM
Don't care

I like the idea of a venom movie but I don't get how a sinister six movie would work. Would Spider-Man be in it? What's the point of having Spider-man villains team up if not to beat Spider-Man? And also how would general audiences react to it? I course us comic book lovers would like the movie but how would general audiences go with a movie about villains. I know it hasn't been said that Spider-man won't be in it but that's the assumption I have right now that makes me doubt a sinister six movie if it was by itself.
By all means bring on the sinister six in an amazing Spider-Man movie, like TASM3 or TASM4, and have the subtitles : the sinister six. But I don't know about a sinister six movie by itself.
Indy - 12/14/2013, 1:27 PM
Spider-man has to fight sinister six if just a villain movie without Spider-man dumb idea. Venom can work without Spidey but be a better movie if venom and spider-man had team up. Be more interesting see the interaction between peter and Eddie because they don't like each other.
MrCBM56 - 12/14/2013, 1:28 PM
It's awesome! I can't wait!
DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:29 PM
why does Spider-Man's leg look so f*cked up in that picture....when I lift my leg over head, my foot isn't near my forehead
Shaggy - 12/14/2013, 1:29 PM
don't count your chickens before they hatch Sony
or do, since the kiddies will pay to see any piece of shit if it's called Spider-man

Sinister Six has potential; Venom is a rubbish character with a rubbish writing team so expect the same.


ALegendaryPanda - 12/14/2013, 1:31 PM
I think this sounds awesome! I've always wanted to see villain focused movies so I'm really pumped! Especially for VENOM
DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:31 PM
Oh and this idea sounds sh*tty anyway.....why don't they see how the sales of Venom and Sinister Six solo comics do before they invest millions of $$ into this idea....
TheRationalNerd - 12/14/2013, 1:31 PM
A sinister six movie could really work! You could use the entire film to see how the team comes together. See conflicts and triumphs amongst them as they aim towards their number one goal...defeating spider-man. Then have Spidey take them all in the 4th film using the Symbiote. They totally won't see it coming. Have Garfield renew his contract for a 5th and 6th film and give us adaptions of Kravens last hint and the last film featuring Spidey and venom to take on carnage. You guys have to seriously look at the possibilities for character development with the sinister 6 movie! :D
REPOMAN - 12/14/2013, 1:31 PM


@DVonShakar


You're not Spider-Man.


REPOMAN - 12/14/2013, 1:33 PM



@DVonShakar


Comic sales have no correlation with box-office sales.


TheRationalNerd - 12/14/2013, 1:36 PM
Sony's smart. They know that most of these characters you just can't cram into a single film. Instead give them a solo flick where we as an audience can see some character development. I'm supporting these films all the way. They won't make billions (so what) by they'll most def give us fans a more elaborate franchise!
Namor - 12/14/2013, 1:36 PM
I just hope they aren't getting to carried away with comicbook movies.

DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:36 PM
@REPOMAN

Wow man you're so right....geez. What was I thinking wow. I'm really give your comments a lot of thought....
Moohika - 12/14/2013, 1:37 PM
Sony is counting on the Marvel brand name to get audiences to watch these movies. I would say about 70%-80% of the general audience don't understand that Spiderman and X-Men aren't products of Marvel Studios, and when they watch the opening credits and see a Marvel banner, they assume it is all from the same people.
DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:38 PM
Anyways.....

why does Spider-Man's leg look so f*cked up in that picture....when I lift my leg over head, my foot isn't near my forehead

Oh and this idea sounds sh*tty anyway.....why don't they see how the sales of Venom and Sinister Six solo comics do before they invest millions of $$ into this idea.
Indy - 12/14/2013, 1:39 PM
I think Spider-man has to fight Venom first.

DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:40 PM
I'd love to see a proper Venom movie....with Eddie Brock....but not using a skinny ass actor like Topher Grace....

Eddie Brock is like the jock, turned journalist, who goes nutty and evil...
Indy - 12/14/2013, 1:41 PM
Highflyer - 12/14/2013, 1:41 PM
Some people are letting the love for Marvel studios cloud their judgement. I'm really looking forward to this spidey universe.
hartley07 - 12/14/2013, 1:43 PM
SPIDEY AND VENOM VS. CARNAGE!!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!
Ceejay - 12/14/2013, 1:44 PM
The Amazing Spider-man's box office being way lower than any of the previous movies shows just how much the regular joes give a damn about a reboot.

So who in their right mind gives a damn about a bunch of silly looking costumed villains and creature-feature designed for adolescent boys?

Venom and Carnage are not classic Spider-man villains most grew up with, they're an abomination from the 1990's that has their own generation of niche fans. They were always going to be ridiculous villains to try to present to the general public with those silly teeth and lashing tongues, waaaaay too fanboy!
ALegendaryPanda - 12/14/2013, 1:45 PM
They simply HAVE to introduce Carnage in the Venom movie! It would be idiotic not to
DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:46 PM
damn......you Spidah-Man fans in hea gonna take that from Ceejay?? ............ahhh well looks like u just did.

lmao.......
Scuzz - 12/14/2013, 1:47 PM
They have been talking about this for weeks so I don't know how it could have shocked anyone, let alone "everyone".

You still suck. also shocking to no one.
Indy - 12/14/2013, 1:49 PM
Then the real fun begins.

DarthOptimus - 12/14/2013, 1:50 PM
I'm just excited we're not getting That 70's Venom.
sanyaya - 12/14/2013, 1:50 PM
The only good thing about this is that studios are now going tot do more villian movies anti hero movies AKA deadpool movie but other than that I don't give a [frick] about these movies tho venom movie sounds kinda cool
GizmoEl - 12/14/2013, 1:50 PM
It'll be awesome. Give us Gwen's death in this movie. Peter is heartbroken and in a dark place when the symbiote comes to him in the third movie (or it escapes from Oscorp since apparently they made it there), and he becomes dark. In the third movie have him whoop scorpions ass and embarrass rhino like he did in TAS. Have him take out another member of the sinister six and almost kill them.. halfway through the movie he'll realize how evil the symbiote is and goes on an inward journey to defeat it.

We'll see Uncle Ben and Gwen etc and he'll overcome the symbiote. It'll latch onto Eddie Brock and Spidey will have to fight the symbiote physically and he'll outsmart it.

The next set of movies would be Sinister 6 where all the villains come together to steal weapons and technologies to make themselves strong enough as a unit to defeat Spiderman. I dunno who the Sinister 6 could fight in this movie, maybe Kingpin or the Spider Slayers or something.. but then in TASM 4 the sinister 6 would attack Spidey. He'd eventually win. In the venom sequel, Venom fights Carnage.
MrCameron - 12/14/2013, 1:53 PM
I love how some people are wanting this to fail, but if Marvel Studios announced a Loki movie, they'd be all like:



Studio - based double - standards at their finest, folks.
Tyrus - 12/14/2013, 1:53 PM
Venom movie is fine.

Sinister Six is a dumb idea being used to reel in Avengers cash.
DVonShakari - 12/14/2013, 1:55 PM
@Tyrus

agreed........
