THE SINISTER SIX Gets A 2016 Release Date; AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 Gets Pushed Back To 2018

It appears Sony has finally mapped out their first move, following the not-so-Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is to push back Spidey's third film by 2 years and release The Sinister Six in 2016! Check it out

Given that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the lowest-grossing Spidey movie ever and, quite frankly, a critical flop, there has been much uncertainy about where Sony Pictures will take the franchise and its previously-announced villain spin-off movies. Now ahead of this week's San Diego Comi-Con, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the studio has scheduled to first release The Sinister Six on November 11, 2016,  and will eventually release The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018. The third and fourth sequels to Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man were initally set for release on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018, but Sony is apparently happy with The Sinister Six writer/director Drew Goddard's rough script and ultimately what he has planned for the supervillain team-up movie, which The Amazing Spider-Man 2 notably spent precious screen-time trying to establish. What do you think?

"With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016," said Sony president Doug Belgrad in a statement.

This should be interesting :D
NovaCorpsFan - 7/23/2014, 9:30 AM
Aw, I thought they were cancelling these movies.
Doopie - 7/23/2014, 9:31 AM
get Arad away from it!!!
charlie2094 - 7/23/2014, 9:31 AM
2018? Wasn't that when TASM 4 was supposed to release? Guess TASM2 really did give them a bit of a knock. Maybe next them they won't spend so much!


Despite my disappointment in TASM2, hugely interested in seeing how Sinister Six turns out, could be cool.

Wait, they're not even going to introduce more villains before rushing straight to Sinister Six?

I'll just be looking at their bargain bin Green Goblin like:

What happened to Spider-Man movie every year besides spin-offs? TASM 2 that's what!
Rocket38 - 7/23/2014, 9:33 AM
Damn i hoped they had cancelled these movies and gave the rights back to marvel
TonyChu - 7/23/2014, 9:33 AM
I still don't see the point of a Sinister Six movie. I do wish this film luck but I'm still on the fence about it.
TheRationalNerd - 7/23/2014, 9:35 AM
Awwww sh**!! :D
EzioKenway1225 - 7/23/2014, 9:37 AM
ITS ON Now!!!
DylanTBest - 7/23/2014, 9:39 AM
Hopefully it gets pushed back to Nevuary 32nd, 2000-Never.
TheDarkPassenger - 7/23/2014, 9:39 AM
Aw [frick] you!
CaptainSporty - 7/23/2014, 9:40 AM
AWWWWWWWWWW. I hoped they cancelled and gave the rights back.
sKeemAn - 7/23/2014, 9:40 AM
Is it me or am I the only one that doesn't see this being a successful movie.
CaptainSporty - 7/23/2014, 9:41 AM
NOBODY PAY FOR THIS. JUST WATCH IT ON PUTLOCKER OR MOVIE4K!

TheRationalNerd - 7/23/2014, 9:41 AM
So it seems like the Sinister Six film will focus on the formation of the team and how they actually start to become somewhat productive and then in TASM 3 we'll see them all go against Spidey right? They really pushed the date back on TASM3 though. But I'll be patient especially if they're trying to get their stuff straight. However, could this pushed back date to 2018 mean that they're waiting for the writers to return?? :O If so, I don't really know how to feel about that but knowing that there was a different version of TASM2 before it got trimmed down makes me a little confident in what they'll be doing. Just take your time and really know the Threequel out of the park Sony.

Does this mean we'll get Venom in 2017?!?! I hope so...
ALegendaryPanda - 7/23/2014, 9:41 AM
Oh hell yeah!! I'm a little disappointed that ASM3 is in 2018 but maybe that means Venom coming out in 2017! :D
EzioKenway1225 - 7/23/2014, 9:42 AM
idk how i feel about sinister six,it could be cool but i heard that Arad and Tolmach said that it was gonna be a redemption story and i am like, the movie is called SINISTER six, not the REDEMPTIVE six
Reasonnnn - 7/23/2014, 9:42 AM
November for a Sinister Six movie? That's gonna suck.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/23/2014, 9:43 AM
@COREYxYEROC
It underperformed, it didn't do as much as they wanted it to do and it was lower than the first one. Any other studio would take that to mean any movie afterwards is gonna keep the number dropping, not rising. Yeah, 700mil is a hefty sum but it's not what they were expecting at all.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/23/2014, 9:43 AM
man, 2016 is gonna be packed!!!


the timing is again curious,maybe they will have something Spidey related aheir panel
BatManiac - 7/23/2014, 9:44 AM
Great news! I'm looking forward to Sinister Six.
TheRationalNerd - 7/23/2014, 9:44 AM
@Ezio

I think they'll start off sinister as it was concluded within TASM2 but then within the film they'll start to have second thoughts or something may happen which will cause them to go against one another and by the time TASM3 gets here we'll have a new roster and return of the team to go against Spidey.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/23/2014, 9:46 AM
TheRationelnerd-could be,i am certainly interested in how they pull it off

2016 is gonna be an insane year:

Warcraft

Captain America 3

Batman v Superman

X-Men Apocalypse

Independence Day 2

Planet of the Apes

Sinister Six

And finishing off the year with STAR WARS!

AlphaMasterFlex - 7/23/2014, 9:47 AM
I [frick]ing hated TASM 2! If they need to delay 3 to make it not shit then do whatever at this point I have negative interest but as for Sinister Six/Venom I remain interested. The November release sounds like bullshitho.
ALegendaryPanda - 7/23/2014, 9:48 AM
Oh and Avatar 2
JoJo1982 - 7/23/2014, 9:48 AM
Ouch!!!!

So will Amazing spiderman 4 ever happen now?
When is Venom release date?
Ocelot - 7/23/2014, 9:48 AM
No one will watch a Sinister Six film. Zero appeal. Sony look desperate.

A Venom movie without Spider-Man or Carnage is also ridiculous.
JamesMan - 7/23/2014, 9:49 AM
Makes sense that Sinister Six would come before TASM3. It would be really weird if after all that setup and heavily teasing the formation of the team at the end of TASM2 that they just hop onto another story while the other is still going. Can't wait!
TheRationalNerd - 7/23/2014, 9:49 AM
2016

Cap 3

Sinister 6
DrDoom - 7/23/2014, 9:50 AM
Sounds like they just wanted to get to the team-up movie as fast as possible, as if that could salvage such a shit franchise.
MrBlackjack - 7/23/2014, 9:50 AM
That's one hell of a break in between Spidey flicks.
JamesMan - 7/23/2014, 9:50 AM
If you think people won't see Sinister Six because of how different it is from a regular superhero film (using villains) than you have to also agree that there is no interest in Guardians of the Galaxy because it's so drastically different from any superhero film (using a tree and a raccoon).
JamesMan - 7/23/2014, 9:52 AM
The 4 year break between Spider-Man centric films is long but at least we get something inbetween. It's better than having a 3 year wait like Spider-Man 2 to 3 and getting nothing to feel the gap in time.
JoJo1982 - 7/23/2014, 9:52 AM
November release for sinister six is a safe spot for it right now..... No BIG movies in November

It would of got crushed in the summer 2016
