Dane DeHaan finally disclosed a Sinister Six movie that was in the development stage at Sony. It was long, even before the time Sony started dealing with Disney and went through.
The Spider-Man Universe
Sony has held the rights of Spider-Man and all his assisting characters for sometime now. The studio also aimed once at creating an expanded universe, probably a Spider-Man Universe. The story begins when Sony released ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ in 2012, and rebooted the character. The movie was then followed up by ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ in 2014. The existence of DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, and also a post-credits scene, hinted for a future appearance of the Sinister Six. The comics had a group of Six supervillains, each of whom wishes to take Spider-Man down.
Trouble for Film by Deal in the Way
The lacklustre performance in the 2014 movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is when the Sinister Six began to deteriorate. However, Drew Goddard- the director, still held an optimistic vision about the chances of film. But things went to another level of complications when Sony got into a deal with Disney.
The deal resulted in the partnership of these two studios in MCU for Spider-Man films set. The partnership allowed the most fan-favourite character to join the franchise eventually. Anyhow, Sony has still got the freedom for creating some other Spider-Man-adjacent movies, such as Venom and Morbius.
Disclosure by DeHaan
DeHaan this time delved a bit more into his period as Harry Osborn, and also the future agendas which never gave any fruit. Though DeHaan has no idea exactly where the story of Harry would have gone, he still knows specific details. He shares how there was a certainty of having a Sinister Six element in the movie.
Never Ending Hopes
Sony has hopes even till today for the Sinister Six, with Amy Pascal as a producer. Another statement that surfaced last year was how there are enough Spider-Man villains established to create a group. Both Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Vulture (Michael Keaton) as well as a few other Spider-Man antagonists have appeared. Additionally, Sony always continued in making their Spidey-universe films.
Maybe we would actually get to see ‘Sinister Six’ too someday. Who knows!
