With Sony's sudden change of plan a few months back we won't be getting [The Amazing Spider-Man 3](movie:671279) in 2016. Instead its getting pushed back to 2018 however The Sinister Six movie will be moving forward and is set for release in November 2016. Also a few weeks back Warner Bros. gave their line-up of DC movies and I was quite surprised to see that Suicide Squad was coming so soon. Now 2016 is already going to be a big year with heroes colliding in Dawn of Justice and Civil War but as well as that its going to be the year of villain team-up movies. Not only that we have [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267) and Dr. Strange so although 2015 seemed to be the big year for blockbuster movies, 2016 is really going to be the year that takes the industry by storm.
But anyway lets get onto the more important details. We have two villain team-up movies coming in 2016 which may not appeal to as many fans of the comic movie genre, but it is something different. All the comic movies/TV series focus on the heroes which is what you normally do but for a change it seems Sony and Warner Bros. want to give us a villains movie. Im pretty sure there hasn't been any villain comic book movies before so this is something new that I'd be interested to see.
The [Sinister Six](movie:1274281) was organised by Doctor Octopus, including foes of Spider-Man like Electro, Mysterio, Sandman, Vulture and Kraven the Hunter. The team was put together to get rid of Spider-Man as he'd proven on many times that they can't singly defeat him by themselves.
The [Suicide Squad](movie:2283363) on the other hand were formed by Amanda Waller to take on top secret missions in order to lower their sentences. This team has been made up by many villains such as Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Count Vertigo, Bronze Tiger, Deathstroke and Harley Quinn. Honestly the list goes on for ages, even Batman was once a member of the team.
Question is now, what movie has the most potential and which one will be the better of the two?
What movie are you looking forward to the most?
For me its gotta be Suicide Squad. Why? Because it has more going for it. Problem is with Sinister Six is that Sony want to do it without Spider-Man when the purpose of the team was to take down Spider-Man. Unless its gonna be an origins story or an anti-heroes movie what purpose does this movie have. I doubt people would want to see a movie where the team are just going around causing havoc to civilians, and if they did wouldn't Spider-Man show up as they are based in New York. Honestly Im interested in seeing what they do with the movie but what can they do with a Sinister Six movie without the web-head. Suicide Squad has had history going back to 1985 with villains taking on missions for the government. In my mind there's so much more you can do with a Suicide Squad movie that can spawn a few sequels with it. We'll get to see a movie from the villains point of view yet they'll be working for the government pulling off deadly missions that their assigned too. Im guessing that this movie will be a 12A/PG-13 but that doesn't mean that can't show the darker and more violent side to these characters. As long as the violence isn't bloody and brutal.
So apart from what movie your more excited for who do you think would win if these two team went up against each other?
