THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Star Dane DeHaan Details Sony's SINISTER SIX Plans Before Disney Deal
Green Goblin actor Dane DeHaan confirms that he was expecting to return as Harry Osborn in a Sinister Six movie, and explains that Sony's deal with Disney is what put an end to that spinoff movie!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a box office success, but after director Marc Webb went way over budget, it was still deemed a failure. As a result, Sony Pictures decided to team with Disney to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and plans for the Amazing franchise to continue ended.
Originally, Sinister Six was going to follow the sequel, with The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 following shortly after. Drew Goddard was going to direct the spinoff, and actor Dane DeHaan (who played Harry Osborn/Green Goblin) has told Collider what he knows about the now dead project.
"I think it’s pretty obvious they were all setting up for like a Sinister Six kind of situation and there was certainly talk of doing all that before all the Disney, Marvel stuff happened. But I can’t tell you I know specifically what it was gonna be. I just know that there definitely would have been a Sinister Six element to it. And, you know, at least the Goblin, if not Harry Osborn would have been involved."
Harry Osborn was expected to be the leader of the villainous team, though the resurrected Norman was probably going to get involved as well. Team members were never confirmed, but Sandman was expected to show up, as were villains like The Vulture and Doctor Octopus, both of whom would have been enhanced with Oscorp tech rather than getting their own origin stories.
There have been rumors that Sony still wants a Sinister Six movie, and if that is the case, we can only hope that Marvel Studios is involved in some capacity.
