Sinister Six. Holy crap, that felt weird. It’s like flexing a muscle I forgot existed. You remember way back when Sony was setting up the Sinister Six in the Amazing Spider-Man universe? That certainly felt like a decade ago, even though it was less than five ago. Of course, that kind of crumbled along with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, paving the way for Spidey to join the MCU in Captain America: Civil War.
With that universe seemingly put to rest, it seemed out of the question that we’d ever get that Sinister Six film — a film that director Drew Goddard made some sacrifices to develop prior to its canning. But is it really? It seems like producer Amy Pascal is still holding out for that film, as she told Vanity Fair.

“I’m just waiting for Drew to be ready to direct it,” Pascal told the outlet. “I would do anything with Drew. I’m just waiting for him to tell me he wants to.”
You know, normally I’d say this was impossible. You’d need to build up each of these villains in a Spidey film first, right? Well, remember, we are currently living in a world where they created a Venom standalone film completely separate from the character of Spider-Man. What’s more is that the film did gangbusters at the box office, which basically tells Sony that audiences don’t really need to connect these characters to Spidey for them to be successful.
But is this a philosophy that will extend to any character beyond Venom, who is more popular than any Sinister Six villain is on his own? Let us know your thoughts down below!
