Spider-Man: Far From Home Producer Teases Possible Sinister Six Movie

Now that Disney and Sony have made amends, the door of opportunity will hopefully continue to open for Spider-Man fans. And if the Far From Home DVD/Blu-ray release indicates anything, it’s that the engines will be running full steam ahead.

Now, what exactly am I referring to? Well, during a featurette discussing the villains Spidey (Tom Holland) has faced thus far in his two McU films, producer Amy Pascal pointed out that most of the web-head’s foes have been a part of the Sinister Six at one point or another.

She then let it slip that there may be more to this coincidence. Much, much more.

“These villains we now have in our universe happen to be characters that are in the Sinister Six,” Pascal says. “There may be something that happens with that.”

From the looks of it, the ducks appear to be lining up for

Spider-Man 4 Will See Spidey Take On The Sinister Six

Ever since Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s post-credits scene teased Scorpion and his pals getting revenge on the wall-crawler, fans have been wondering when Tom Holland’s Peter Parker will face the Sinister Six. Surprisingly, we’ve had 7 solo Spidey movies so far and the supervillain team has yet to appear. Though not for lack of trying on Sony’s part. It’s possible the web-slinger could finally meet his match, however, in Spider-Man 4.

We Got This Covered has heard from our sources – the same ones who told us Marvel was developing a She-Hulk show back in April – that Holland’s fourth standalone film in the role will feature the hero taking on the Six. Apparently, Spider-Man 4 will be a “big event movie” where the half a dozen antagonists go toe to toe with Spidey. But this won’t be the first pic where the group comes together, as we’re told

Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man: 10 Best Moments In The Andrew Garfield Franchise

While director Sam Raimi was initially working on a fourth installment in his Spider-Man franchise, starring Tobey Maguire as the iconic hero, it wasn’t meant to be. After several creative differences with Sony Pictures, it was decided that the Raimi-verse wouldn’t continue. With Spider-Man 4 scrapped, the studio proceeded with a reboot in the form of The Amazing Spider-Man with director Marc Webb. Andrew Garfield was picked to bring Spider-Man to life in this newest incarnation.

With a solid success, a sequel was immediately worked on, but it didn’t take long for Sony Pictures to get too ambitious with the franchise. Not only did they have plans for three sequels, but they were also using this new universe as a way to launch franchises, including the Sinister Six spin-off. Following a mixed critical reception and several reported production problems,

Spider-Man: 10 Things We Hope To See In The Spider-Verse Sequel

Sony greenlit a sequel and a couple of spin-offs to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse before the movie was even released, because there was a lot of buzz surrounding it and the studio had a lot of faith in the movie. Unlike The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had sequels and spin-offs rushed into development before failing miserably upon arrival, Into the Spider-Verse was the runaway hit that Sony was hoping it would be. Not only was it a box office smash; it won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, too. So, here are 10 Things We Hope To See In The Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Sequel.

10 Things Sony Had Planned After The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Back in 2014, Sony saw its upcoming summer tentpole The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as a sure-fire hit. Executives were hoping that it would clear $1 billion, paving the way for an McU-style universe of films. They’d already jumped the gun on rushing sequels and spin-offs into development, banking on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being a hit. However, owing to it being the worst Spidey outing since Spider-Man 3, audiences didn’t turn out for the film and it didn’t do well enough for Sony’s plans to come to fruition. So, here are 10 Things Sony Had Planned After The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man Star Tom Holland Thinks Green Goblin Is Hard To Pull Off In Live Action

If you’re familiar with Spider-Man in comics and animation, then you’re well aware of how he boasts one of the most expansive rogues galleries in the entire superhero genre. After five solo films, it really seems like we’re only beginning to scratch the surface, but Sony does have a habit of retreading familiar territory.

Then again, it’s not entirely Sony’s fault in every respect because a character like Norman Osborn isn’t just a quintessential Spider-Man villain – he’s also an important supporting character, just as Magneto is to the X-Men or Lex Luthor to Superman. It’s just hard getting around him.

During a recent interview, Homecoming and Far From Home star Tom Holland spoke of how he loved the Into the Spider-verse animated film, but he also gave his feelings on the Green Goblin, saying:

Sony’s Confident They Don’t Need Marvel Studios For Spider-Man

Ever since the news broke that the Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios partnership that saw Spider-Man appear in the McU had collapsed, there’s been a lot of misinformation about why this was the case. It’s tricky to know what’s really going on given that these are complex and (apparently) frosty negotiations between the two corporate behemoths, and the PR line about the dispute simply being over Kevin Feige’s producer credit looks flimsy. Fortunately, Borys Kit at THR seems to have the real inside scoop, shedding some light on why Sony Pictures thinks they can go at it alone with Spider-Man.

This is largely based on the two studios being in a very different place than they were when they signed the original Spider-Man agreement in 2014. Back then, Sony Pictures had released the largely derided The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which despite pulling in $700 million at the global box office,

How Sony Might Have Just Screwed Spider-Man Again

Don Kaye Aug 21, 2019

Oh what a tangled web Sony and Disney have woven around Spider-Man, removing the character from the McU in the quest for more money.

Like the saying goes, this is why we can’t have nice things: as widely reported yesterday, Sony Pictures and Disney have ended the landmark, three-year partnership that allowed both studios to share Spider-Man, arguably the most popular character in the Marvel Universe.

While this is an almost stereotypical example of the greed and ego that permeate Hollywood and get in the way of the actual process of making good movies, it’s a little hard at first to determine just who the villain here is.

Here’s why: after Sony ran Spider-Man into the ground in 2014 with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a botched attempt at launching a shared “Spider-Verse” that became the lowest grossing of Sony’s five Spider-Man movies up to that point,

Sony Blames Disney for Spider-Man Movie Partnership Failure

Mike Cecchini Aug 21, 2019

Sony released a pointed statement blaming Disney for why Spider-Man will no longer be part of the Marvel Studios McU franchise.

It's going to be a very long week for Marvel fans, isn't it?

After a tumultuous afternoon that included a bombshell report that Sony and Disney had parted ways in their shared custody of the Spider-Man franchise, thereby keeping Tom Holland's Peter Parker out of future McU movies from Marvel Studios, well...let's just say the internet didn't take it very well. You can read about much of the sordid story in detail right here, but in short, the two studios failed to come to an agreement about how to share the profits from the ongoing Spider-Man franchise, the latest installment of which, Spider-Man: Far From Home, just crossed the billion dollar mark at the box office. Additional reports that negotiations were continuing sounded a more hopeful tone,

What's Next for Spider-Man Movies Without the McU?

Mike Cecchini Aug 22, 2019

In a post-McU world, where will Tom Holland and Sony take the adventures of Peter Parker and Spider-Man without Marvel?

Spider-Man no more! Well, not really. Spider-Man is a box office champion, a legendarily versatile character, and an absolute juggernaut of merchandising and storytelling. So the recent news that Sony and Marvel Studios have ended the agreement that has allowed them to share custody of Peter Parker has been met with consternation among fans. Especially since Kevin Feige’s steady hand helped return Spidey to glory after three consecutive dreadful live action efforts. Marvel Studios not only put a new coat of paint on the Spider-Man mythos, reminding everyone why they love Peter Parker and friends so much in the first place, but they made him a central character in the mind-bogglingly ambitious climax to the McU!

So what the hell does Sony do next? As it turns out,

New Spider-Man Movies Won't Have Marvel Studios Involved

David Crow Aug 20, 2019

Sony and Disney are parting ways on Spider-Man due to a financing disagreement. Tom Holland will be back, but Kevin Feige will not.

The various places filmmakers could go in the Spider-Verse got a little smaller on Tuesday when it was reported by Deadline that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, and Marvel Studios for that matter, would not be producing Spider-Man movies going forward.

The news, which is sure to hit fans like a Goblin Glider, follows several months of negotiations between Sony and Disney regarding the financing (and therefore profit-sharing) of individual Spider-Man movies going forward. This comes after Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was produced by Feige alongside Amy Pascal, rode high on being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; Peter Parker (Tom Holland) was even presented as “the Next Tony Stark." Grossing more than $1.1 billion and counting, Far From Home is the biggest movie

Looking Back at James Cameron’s Aborted Spider-Man Movie

Henry Bevan looks back at what could have been with James Cameron’s Spider-Man…

James Cameron’s Spider-Man. It’s a big What If..?, up there with Kubrick’s Napoleon and Jodorowsky’s Dune. It seems like the perfect match, pairing one of Hollywood’s best action directors with one of its most action-suited characters. Just imagine what Cameron would have done with all of Spider-Man’s acrobatic flips and kicks.

Well, as most know, it almost happened. Supposedly, Cameron was setting up an adaptation after the release of True Lies, but due to legal circumstances surrounding the screen rights, he bailed. The director had convinced Carolco, the independent studio who gave him $100 million for Terminator 2: Judgement Day based on a half-page memo, to buy the film rights. He was all set to go. Then, it turns out Sony was also involved and Carolco didn’t outright own the character.

"Black Cat" Movie

Marvel Comics' "Black Cat" #3, in support of Columbia Pictures developing "Black Cat", live-action feature, is written by Jed MacKay and illustrated by Travel Foreman, with covers by J. Scott Campbell and In-Hyuk Lee, available August 7, 2019:

"...surprising no one, a heist by 'Black Cat' of the 'Sanctum Sanctorum' belonging to 'Doctor Strange' has gone horribly wrong.

"Now, 'Felicia Hardy' and her crew are under attack in a place where any wrong turn or opened door means certain death. It would take an insane amount of luck to get out alive..."

"'Spider-Man' connects to a lot of characters," said Sanford Panitch, President of Columbia Pictures. "There are villains, heroes, and antiheroes, and a lot are female characters, many of whom are bona fide, fully dimensionalized and unique..."

'Black Cat', according to Panitch "...is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a
