Thank God is not another trilogy. I'm tired of everything being a trilogy these days.

I definitely see the Sinister Six in the future

These movies are based off of the Ultimate Series I believe. I heard that some villains will be introduced in each movies to then later be shown as the Sinister Six. So, I assume the Lizard will be back along with Electro, Rhino , Vulture ,Green Goblin and one other character.

I have a feeling the 2nd movie will end with a sort of cliffhanger leading up to the Sinister Six appearing in the 3rd. Possibly Norman becoming Green Goblin and Gwen's death. For the 4th movie I hope they do Venom and just have Venom as the only villain. I personally think there should be at least 5 or 6 movies in this series.
