According to the Hollywood Reporter, a director has been named for the Sinister Six film, which will be a spin-off of the Amazing Spider-Man series, starring Andrew Garfield. Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard is finalizing his deal to direct the Sinister Six film, which he is also writing. Goddard is also writing and executive producing the upcoming Daredevil TV series pilot.
This is another step closer to Sony having a full-fledged Spider-verse with their films, as Sony recently announced they have a release date for Amazing Spider-Man 4 on May 4th, 2018. On top of that, back in December, Sony hired Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Ed Solomon to work on yet another spin-off called Venom.
As for the Sinister Six, knowing what we do from the trailers, it is most likely this film will feature Electro, Rhino, Green Goblin and maybe Vulture and Doctor Octopus, as their trademark weaponry can seen in the trailer. Who is the sixth though? Could it be Venom, since he's already getting his own film? Maybe they'll go back to a classic character like Mysterio or Chameleon.
What do you guys think about Goddard directing this film? Also, who will be the members of the Sinister Six?
