With Amazing Spiderman 2 heading to theatres everywhere this Friday the hype machine is running at full speed. Having seen the movie (look out for the review soon) I can safely say that there is no end credits stinger hinting at the future of the Spidey-verse. But that isn’t to say hardcore fans are out of luck. If you use the “Shazam” app on your smartphone during the end credits sequence you will unlock a special video offering clues to the future of the franchise. Here are some screen captures from the video:
To those who aren’t quite sure who the images refer to, the lineup seems to be comprised of Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter & Chameleon (or Mysterio). Including a few known commodities in the ASM universe we do get a couple of surprises in Kraven and Chameleon. How these characters end up getting introduced is yet to be determined but they are teeming with big screen potential.
Official response from Sony has claimed that this may not end up being the final Sinister Six but does indicate their thinking on the matter. The list seems pretty solid to me and, having loved the ASM2, leaves me excited to see how this film develops.
Helmed by Drew Goddard, the mind behind Cabin in the Woods, Sinister Six is looking to begin production in January of 2015 leaning towards a 2016 release date. Check back in at OTL News for all the latest comic book movie news!
