THE SINISTER SIX Gets A 2016 Release Date; AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 Gets Pushed Back To 2018

THE SINISTER SIX Gets A 2016 Release Date; AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 Gets Pushed Back To 2018

It appears Sony has finally mapped out their first move, following the not-so-Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is to push back Spidey's third film by 2 years and release The Sinister Six in 2016! Check it out

Given that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the lowest-grossing Spidey movie ever and, quite frankly, a critical flop, there has been much uncertainy about where Sony Pictures will take the franchise and its previously-announced villain spin-off movies. Now ahead of this week's San Diego Comi-Con, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the studio has scheduled to first release The Sinister Six on November 11, 2016,  and will eventually release The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018. The third and fourth sequels to Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man were initally set for release on June 10, 2016, and May 4, 2018, but Sony is apparently happy with The Sinister Six writer/director Drew Goddard's rough script and ultimately what he has planned for the supervillain team-up movie, which The Amazing Spider-Man 2 notably spent precious screen-time trying to establish. What do you think?

"With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016," said Sony president Doug Belgrad in a statement.
