‘Sinister Six’ Delayed Following Sony & Marvel’s Spider-Man Deal

Fanboys and -girls around the globe are no doubt still celebrating last night’s surprising announcement that Sony and Marvel would partner to produce new Spider-Man films, and integrate the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what does that mean for what was to be Sony’s first “Amazing Spider-Man” spinoff, “Sinister Six”?

According to the Wall Street Journal, “Sinister Six” will remain in development at Sony, but it’s been delayed indefinitely. WSJ writes that the studio is “rethinking” its plan for the flick, and it has been pulled from its initial release date of November 11, 2016.

While that’s never a good sign for a movie, WSJ’s report indicates that Sony still wants to move forward with the film, and so far, Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods”) is still on board to write and direct. Still, not knowing when the movie may come out may cause some of “Sinister”‘s high-profile cast members — including Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans, and Dane DeHaan — to bolt from the project, putting it in even more uncertain waters.

Letting go of the flick might be in Sony’s best interest, since one of the driving forces behind its agreement to the Marvel partnership was that the “Amazing Spider-Man” films under-performed; gathering together a group of lesser-known villains from that same universe into a different movie may not have worked out, either. Still, nothing is set in stone yet, and Marvel’s production company is known for building hits around unlikely protagonists (see: “Guardians of the Galaxy”).

Stay tuned.

Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn: The Amazing Spider-man 3 is going to happen?

‘Spider-Man 3’ Movie Release Date, Cast Rumors & News: Andrew Garfield & Dane DeHaan Return in 2018 Film?

Even before the release of “The Amazing Spider Man 2“, Sony Pictures has seemed to settle on the release dates of its sequels: “The Amazing Spider Man 3” in 2016 and “The Amazing Spider Man 4” in 2018. However, owing to the surprising and below par reception of the first sequel, the premiere of “The Amazing Spider Man 3” will be put off to 2018 while “Sinister Six” will have its debut next year.

Also, Sony Pictures has announced that it will carry out a casting call through CBM, taking aim at Andrew Garfield and Dane DeHaan to return in the film.

But the ongoing excitement for the movie, which has already been spoiled once, may just be spoiled once again as Sony’s plans for the film is still drifting airborne with franchise agreements still under shaky negotiations.

Flickering Myth reports that “plans for the Spider-Man franchise seem to be completely up in the air at present, with various discussions taking place concerning the possibility of bringing Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with ‘Captain America: Civil War’, or taking the character in a new direction with yet another reboot.”

It can be recalled that “The Amazing Spider Man 2” did not do well in terms of audience reception and Box Office returns, and now Sony is hardly getting any commitment for the franchise of the film because of that. Cinema Blend even reveals that Marvel Studios had plans to drop Garfield as lead, rendering the creation of “Spider Man 3” in question.

Fortunately, several sources confirm that the creation of the film is underway as Bill Beckman Casting released a casting call searching for male and female extras “of all ages and ethnicities, ages 18-65”, Cinema Blend reports.

It has also been confirmed that Sony will be the producing studio. This would mean that Sony’s deal with Marvel Studios will come to an end and Spidey may no longer be appearing with any other Marvel Studio superheroes. And because Sony ends ties with Marvel Studios, the release of Sinister Six may also be put on hold.

Bill Beckman Casting also verifies that “both Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider Man) and Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn/ Green Goblin) will be returning for another adventure that will see Spidey ‘facing a new challenge to protect New York City'”, as also shared by Flickering Myth.

But there are more reasons to shrug it off and despite the disappointing show of the “Spider Man 2”: Andrew Garfield is coming back and a casting call means that filming may have already started.

Nonetheless, Flickering Myth reports that Bill Beckman Casting is a “fradulent agency” so there’s a possibility that Garfield and DeHaan may not reprise their roles on the film and Sony might do a reboot on the series.

There is no exact release date of the film but definitely it would be in 2018.

Here is a video on the announcement of the “Spider Man 3” casting call:

VIDEO: Dane DeHaan Tells MTV Everything He Knows About ‘Sinister Six’


Ever since “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ set up a possible “Sinister Six” movie, people have been asking a ton of questions about the spinoff. Included in those people, it turns out, is the Green Goblin himself, Dane DeHaan, who wasn’t even told about the 2016 release date for the movie.

“I found that out by reading the news,” DeHaan, the star of the new zombie rom-com “Life After Beth,” joked in an interview with MTV News.

Although to be fair, Aubrey Plaza, who plays the zombie part of the zombie rom-com, barely knew anything at all about the franchise.

“What did you find out, there’s a new Spider-Man?” asked Plaza.

“Is there like a sexy, purple ghoul or something that I could play?” Plaza asked. “Maybe you could talk to the director, producer, say you have a friend. I could be scary!”

OK, Aubrey, we hear you. Maybe a female Sandman (Sandwoman, sorry), to inject some life into that character? We’d see it.

Other than the release date, DeHaan was as in the dark as anyone. Hopefully he, along with the rest of us, get some info — other than the release date — soon.
