Remember way back when Sony was planning to make a Sinister Six film? Well apparently, according to Drew Goddard, it isn't a complete impossibility for it to still happen.

Even though Spider-Man is officially in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony still owns his rights. Meaning, they can make spinoffs; for instance, Venom. That being said, there was actually supposed to be a Sinister Six film not too long ago. It was reportedly going to be directed by Drew Goddard, and it had a release date of 2016.

Fast forward two years later, that obviously never happened. However, Drew Goddard told Hollywood Reporter some things about the project.

"It was really fun [developing Sinister Six]. I wouldn't have done it had I not thought there was a real opportunity to do something different and exciting and just flat-out bananas," Goddard said. "It was very much me and — a much more commercial version of — the Cabin [in the Woods] mentality."

He continued, "The punk rock mentality that led to Cabin is very much at the core of Sinister Six. That's a fun one. Who knows, it could see the light of day. It's funny, I've been through a lot of volatility at a lot of different studios. Between MGM and Sony and Fox. At a certain point, you start to realize, 'Oh, this is just a volatile business' and you try to stay afloat as the boat rocks back and forth."

It wouldn't make much sense to make a Sinister Six film without Spider-Man. Still, if there's a right idea in place, then Sony may eventually put it on the production line. Whether that's going to be in the MCU, or in Sony's own little universe, who knows?
