The Sinister Six is a group of Spider Man villains that debuted in the Amazing Spider Man Annual #1. The team has varied over the years (at one point it was called the Sinister Twelve), but the original roster of villains was: Doctor Octopus (leader), Sandman, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, and The Vulture. Sony Pictures has recently announced that they are making both a Venom and Sinister Six spin-off film along with the ASM films. Also, they recently released the ASM2 trailer. There are many easter-eggs in that trailer foreshadowing things to come. So lets begin in piecing Sony's Spidey puzzle together..
1. The Daily Bugle Tumblr:
Recently it has been shown Sony has started writing articles dubbed as "The Daily Bugle" editorials. They talk about current events in the ASM universe, including the aftermath of Curt Connors (aka The Lizard) and the body recovery of Dr. Rajit Ratha. One that I found extremely interesting however, was an article about a bank robbery that stumped the NYPD. They described the break-in/crime scene, and to me it sounded like the work of The Shocker. Now if I had to guess, this is just a tip of the hat. I highly doubt that they would use The Shocker for a film. Also, some of the articles are written by Eddie Brock. Any Spidey fan knows that Brock was the first person to become Venom. I'm going to guess this was a nod to the announced spinoff of the same name.
2. ASM2 Trailer Easter Eggs:
There were a lot of these. The most obvious ones were the tentacles and vulture wings. However, there is also a clip of Harry Osborn reading a panel with sections talking about a Venom Storage, the Ravencroft Institute (the infamous asylum known for housing Cletus Kassidy, aka Carnage), and a file written by Dr. Morbius. For those of you who don't know, Morbius became Morbius the Living Vampire. As well as that, it looks as though Rhino and The Green Goblin will play much bigger roles in the film then we thought. Harry Osborn was also revealed to be the one to become The Green Goblin. I would also like to point out that there is a split-second clip that looks exactly like Gwen Stacy's death scene.
The only thing I can say for sure is that they will introduce the Sinister Six and Venom. I'm not sure when, but I'm positive they will. Also, I'm almost positive Gwen Stacy will die in The ASM2. I'd imagine it to be at the hands of Harry Osborn's Green Goblin. But other than that, I think we'll just have to wait and see.
As always, comments are appreciated. What do you think will happen?
