Surfacing last night on the viral promotion site for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”, electroarrives.com , Sony reports that they will be expanding the Amazing Spider-Man universe with ‘Venom’ and ‘Sinister Six’ movies.
Sony has hired Alex Kurtzman, Drew Goddard, Ed Solomon, Jeff Pinkner, and Robert Orci to be the ones to create the large-scale story encompassing what I’m going to go on record as being the one to coin “the Spider-Verse”.
According to Hollywood Reporter:
The writers will work with Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach and The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb to form what Sony is calling a “franchise brain to expand the universe for the brand and develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films”
I cannot tell you how excited I am for a Venom movie, something they’ve been working on for years, but as far as the Sinister Six, I’m not entirely sure how they’d make it without Spidey or what it’d even be about. My first guess is for them to do an almost “heist” movie style, as not all Spidey villains want to take over the world.
Either way, I am still interested in seeing the “Spider-Verse” expanded.
