‘Sinister Six’ and ‘Venom’ Movies to Be Released Before ‘Amazing Spider-Man 4’

A clear timeline is finally starting to materialize for the growing “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise.

According to Den of Geek, the villain-centered spinoffs “Venom” and “Sinister Six” will be released before “The Amazing Spider-Man 4,” which had initially been slotted for May 7, 2018.

“Before we know what we do with ‘Spider-Man 4,’ we’re going to do ‘Sinister Six,’ ‘Venom’ and ‘Spider-Man 3,’ “Amazing Spider-Man 2” producer Matt Tolmach told Den of Geek. “There is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies. So we’re just not at ‘Spider-Man 4’ because we still have a whole other ‘Spider-Man’ movie and two other movies. So we don’t know yet what [‘Spider-Man 4’] is going to be.”

However, a “Spider-Man” movie, but not necessarily an “Amazing Spider-Man” pic, will still hit theaters in May of 2018.

In addition to next month’s “Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Sony will release “Amazing Spider-Man 3” on May 27, 2016. Marc Webb, who directed the original film in the rebooted movie series, will also helm the two aforementioned sequels. However, he will not return to direct a fourth chapter.

Drew Goddard is in negotiations to direct “Sinister Six” from his own script. “Venom,” on the other hand, will be directed by Alex Kurtzman from a screenplay written by Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Ed Solomon. It’s still unclear which film will arrive first.

Tolmach and Avi Arad, who produced the first “Amazing Spider-Man,” will produce the five upcoming installments.
