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.

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:
