SINISTER SIX Movie Would Have Included SPIDER-MAN; May Still Happen With Marvel Studios

One of the main reasons Drew Goddard's planned Sinister Six movie was so divisive came down to the fact that the plan was for it to apparently focus solely on the villains, but the filmmaker has now confirmed that Peter Parker would have had a leading role...

When Spider-Man joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this year, no one really gave a damn about the fact that Sinister Six and Venom were indefinitely shelved. However, it's beginning to sound like we may have missed out on something special with the former, a movie which was set to be directed by Drew Goddard. When io9 caught up with The Martian writer recently, he confirmed that it would have been a standalone movie set in The Amazing Spider-Man Universe which would have very much featured Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker in a leading role. 

"My vision of that movie was a summer annual," Goddard explained to the site. "So you didn’t have to worry about continuity. It was just, ‘We take Peter, put him on an adventure, we put him back in his life.’ I intentionally wanted a movie that didn’t have to worry about mythology and continuity. It was important to me to make a movie that could stand on its own. So the good news is, you know, [laughs], it slots in very well to any plan anybody ever wants. We just need to let a couple years go by, I think." While the script would no doubt need to be retooled to fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it sounds like it could fit into Marvel and Sony's future plans if they're interested. For what's it's worth, Goddard - no doubt disappointed about not getting to make Sinister Six - is very much on board with Kevin Feige's plans for Spider-Man. 
 
"The tricky part about all this is I love this plan. I love that you get to see Spider-Man in Marvel movies. I think that’s a great thing. I’m on board with that decision because as a fan that’s what I want. So who knows what the future holds? This is Hollywood, man, you’ve gotta play the long game."
