THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 And SINISTER SIX Were Set To Feature This Fan-Favorite Villain

Marc Webb has finally spilled the beans on his plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and they sound less than spectacular! He's also revealed some surprising intel on that scrapped Sinister Six spinoff movie.

Thanks to the disappointing critical and commercial response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony Pictures chose to team up with Marvel Studios and scrapped their plans for two more instalments in that franchise and a spinoff revolving around the Sinister Six. Now, director Marc Webb has shed some light on his plans for the third movie and it would indeed have featured the return of Norman Osborn.

However, as a leaked set photo confirmed back in 2014, the plan was to show that Norman's decapitated head had been put in storage and that he would then be resurrected as the Green Goblin.

Wait, what?!


"Yeah, we were talking about the Sinister Six. They were going to make a Sinister Six movie before we did the third one. But I wanted…Chris Cooper was going to come back and play the Goblin. We were going to freeze his head, and then he was going to be brought back to life. And then there was that character called The Gentleman. We had some notions about how to do it, but I think maybe we were thinking too far ahead when we started building in those things. But it was a fun exercise. I look back very fondly on those days."

Sadly, it sounds like Webb had a complete misunderstanding of the source material and it's hard to imagine any of this actually working. Regardless, Webb went on to reveal that Norman's Green Goblin was going to be the lead in Drew Goddard's Sinister Six. Who knows what that would have meant for Harry but both The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and the spinoff would have put the spotlight on him.

"Well, that was going to be the main villain," Webb confirmed. "He was going to come out and lead the Sinister Six. We had talked about Vulture a little bit too, actually." So, The Vulture could have made his big screen debut here rather than Spider-Man: Homecoming. I know which version I'm glad we got! How do you guys feel about these comments?
