During the course of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's production, there have been hints that the sequel is leading up to The Sinister Six making their big screen debut in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. While promoting the international release of White House Down, Jamie Foxx confirmed that there has been talk of The Sinister Six, while also teasing a Major Spoiler for Electro in the upcoming sequel. Read on with caution.
"Yes, they actually talked about it, the Sinister Six. So, fingers crossed, because when you think about it, electricity never dies, it just goes to a different place."
Director Marc Webb first teased this team of villains during Comic-Con 2013, when he specifically mentioned The Gentleman as a possible villain for either The Amazing Spider-Man 3 or The Amazing Spider-Man 4. In the Marvel comic books, there were several different versions of The Sinister Six throughout the years, including villains such as The Gentleman, Electro, Doctor Octopus, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Vulture, and Sandman, so it isn't known which version of The Sinister Six will be used in the forthcoming sequels.
It will likely be quite some time before we can determine when we might see The Sinister Six in this superhero franchise, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more details emerge.
