Sinister Six movie heading to production in early 2015
Might Drew Goddard's Sinister Six movie arrive before The Amazing Spider-Man 3?
As we revealed a couple of weeks ago, Sony's planned release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4 of summer 2018 is now likely to be taken by one of the spin-off films the studio has planned. However, it might also be that the summer 2016 release earmarked for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is far from a certainty too.
Marc Webb is returning to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but its 2016 slot may yet be taken by the Sinister Six film (which would shunt Spidey 3 to 2017). The Wrap has revealed that Drew Goddard, who is working on the script and directing Sinister Six, could be starting production as early as January 2015. If that's the case, then it's almost certainly going to be the next Spider-Man movie universe film to go before the cameras, and that makes it a leading candidate for that 2016 date.
Sony is expected to outline its plans for its Spider-Man movies, and specifically when to expect them, in the next few weeks.
