Sony still has plans for a Sinister Six movie, which will include “Venom” –
Long before Tom Holland became Spider Man, Sony had made it clear that they wanted to make a Sinister Six project. So much so that this one was even officially announced when Andrew Garfield played the character almost ten years ago. As The Incredible Spider-Man 3 however, the film never came to fruition.
Now, even if Sony finally makes its wish come true in the next Spider-Man: No Path Home, a new “scoop” suggests the studio still has long-term plans to create a film focused solely on the villainous group.
Journalist Anthony D’Alessandro was the only one to share this scoop on Deadline Hero Nation Podcast.
While this information may not seem so exciting, especially since the studio’s latest attempt failed so miserably, the way D’Alessandro says he wants to get there will no doubt pique fans’ interest.
âBecause Sony has always stayed out of the current Spider-Man stuff that they do with the Disney MCU,â D’Alessandro says, âwith this Venom, they will actually connect to the Spider Man universe [thatâs being set-up with the] Disney MCU.
So, according to him, Sony won’t just use Tom Hardy’s Venom as a starting point for their Sinister Six movie, but the next movie Venom: let there be carnage will finally connect to the Spider-Man movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While it sounds too good to be true, it was still inevitable. Last week, in an interview with IGNVenom 2 director – and MCU alumnus – Andy Serkis has said the Spider-Man and Venom encounter is going to happen. How this happens is the burning question however.
Could Sony use the Multiverse as a shortcut, much like they do in No coming home? More importantly, would Venom be an ally of Spider-Man, or would he be a member of the Sinister Six?
With Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and Electro confirmed – and Lizard and Sandman set to appear – in the next Spider Man film, that leaves a free space. While most think it could be Mysterio’s stain, what if it was in fact Venom? As always, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
Venom: let there be carnage opens in theaters this Friday, October 1; while, Spider-Man: No Path Home hits theaters in December.
