Drew Goddard was out promoting The Martian and talked with iO9 about the Sinister Six film he was working on and presumably scrapped after the Spider-Man returned to the MCU. Goddard apparently wrote the script for the Sinister Six to fit in any continuity.
“My vision of that movie was a summer annual, so you didn’t have to worry about continuity. It was just, ‘We take Peter, put him on an adventure, we put him back in his life.’ I intentionally wanted a movie that didn’t have to worry about mythology and continuity. It was important to me to make a movie that could stand on its own. So the good news is, you know, [laughs], it slots in very well to any plan anybody ever wants. We just need to let a couple years go by, I think,” said Goddard to io9.
As this is the third time with the Spider-Man franchise, all roads need to point towards a Sinister Six film. Anything less than that seems like a waste of time or a rehash of the previous two incarnations.
The next Spider-Man will be directed by Jon Watts, with screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, and Tom Holland stars in the lead role as Peter Parker with Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. The film is due out on July 28, 2017.
